Nuclear Regulatory Commission.


Final rule; correction.


On September 26, 2002 (67 FR 60520), the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published a final rule amending its regulations to incorporate by reference a later edition and addenda of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPV Code) and the ASME Code for Operation and Maintenance of Nuclear Power Plants (OM Code) to provide updated rules for construction, inservice inspection (ISI), and inservice testing (IST) of components in light-water cooled nuclear power plants. This action corrects two erroneous references to the NRC's regulations made in the supplementary information accompanying the final rule.

In the final rule, published on September 26, 2002 (67 FR 60520), on page 60521, in the third column, in the third full paragraph, the first and second sentences are corrected to read as follows:

In responding to this clarification, several commenters indicated that the 10-year IWE and 5-year IWL examination intervals must coincide with the 120-month interval update in § 50.55a(g)(4)(ii). The NRC does not agree that the 10-year IWE and 5-year IWL examination intervals must coincide with the 120-month interval update in § 50.55a(g)(4)(ii).
