The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is withdrawing Draft Regulatory Guide DG-4006, “Demonstrating Compliance with the Radiological Criteria for License Termination,” from consideration as a regulatory guide. DG-4006 was published for public comment in August 1998.
This draft guide was issued to propose guidance on demonstrating compliance with radiological criteria at the sites of licensees who wish to terminate their licenses and release their sites. Appendix D of NUREG-1727, Start Printed Page 46542“NMSS Decommissioning Standard Review Plan,” published in September 2000, incorporates the guidance that was proposed in DG-4006.
Regulatory guides may be withdrawn when they are superseded by the Commission's regulations, when equivalent recommendations have been incorporated in applicable approved codes and standards, or when changes in methods and techniques or in the need for specific guidance have made them obsolete.
Comments and suggestions are encouraged at any time in connection with guides currently being developed or published guides. Written comments may be submitted to the Rules and Directives Branch, Division of Administrative Services, Office of Administration, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555.
