In 1998, the NRC Rules of Practice in 10 CFR Part 2, Subpart J, were modified to provide for the creation and operation of the LSN, an internet-based technological solution to the submission and management of records and documents relating to the licensing of a geologic repository for the disposal of high-level radioactive waste. (63 FR 71729.) Pursuant to 10 CFR 2.1011(d), the agency has chartered the LSNARP, an advisory committee that provides advice to the NRC on fundamental issues relating to LSN design, operation, maintenance, and compliance monitoring. At the August 8, 2001 LSNARP meeting, the principal topics will include discussion of the recent revisions to 10 CFR Part 2 (66 FR 29453-29467—May 31, 2001); discussion of LSNA guidance materials, functional requirements, etc. that were released June 13, 2001; demonstration of the LSN portal and software; a presentation of a technical scenario for a small participant system with some projections about what it will actually take to put “100 documents” on the web; and, any other items that DOE or other participants would like to put on the table.
