I. Introduction

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) continues to prepare and issue Interim Staff Guidance (ISG) documents for fuel cycle facilities. These ISG documents provide clarifying guidance to the NRC staff when reviewing licensee integrated safety analyses, license applications or amendment requests or other related licensing activities for fuel cycle facilities under 10 CFR Part 70. Currently, the NRC has revised one of these documents, Draft ISG-FCSS-10, Rev. 2, based on comments received on Revision 1. The NRC plans to discuss the resolution of these comments at a public meeting to be held April 28, 2006, at the NRC Headquarters Auditorium in Rockville, Maryland.

II. Summary

The purpose of this notice is to provide the public with a meeting notice and proposed agenda for a public meeting scheduled for April 28, 2006, at the NRC Headquarters Auditorium in which the NRC will discuss revision of the draft guidance document, FCSS-ISG-10, Revision 2, which provides guidance to NRC staff to determine whether the minimum margin of subcriticality is sufficient to provide an adequate assurance of subcriticality for safety to demonstrate compliance with the performance requirements of 10 CFR 70.61(d), and its resolution of comments received on Revision 1. Revision 2 of the draft ISG and the ADAMS accession number for an associated table of comment resolution were previously noticed in the Federal Register on March 20, 2006. The agenda for the April 28, 2006, meeting is provided below.
