The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) 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 regulation, 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 32 of Regulatory Guide 1.84, “Design, Fabrication, and Materials Code Case Acceptability, ASME Section III,” contains comprehensive guidance on all Section III Code Cases, including those oriented to materials and related testing in Division 1.
With the issuance of Revision 32 to Regulatory Guide 1.84, Regulatory Guide 1.85, “Materials Code Case Acceptability, ASME Section III, Division 1,” is being withdrawn because the guidance in Regulatory Guide 1.85 has been updated and incorporated into Revision 32 of Regulatory Guide 1.84.

You may submit comments by any one of the following methods. Comments may be accompanied by relevant information or supporting data.
