The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has issued a revision of a guide in its Regulatory Guide Series. This series has been developed to describe and make available to the public such information as methods acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC's regulations, techniques used by the staff in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data needed by the staff in its review of applications for permits and licenses.
Revision 3 of Regulatory Guide 1.149, “Nuclear Power Plant Simulation Facilities for Use in Operator Training and License Examinations,” describes methods acceptable to the NRC staff for complying with the NRC's regulations associated with approval or acceptance of a simulation facility for use in reactor operator and senior operator training and NRC license examinations.
