I. Introduction

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing Regulatory Guide 9.4, “Suggested Format for Cash Flow Statements Submitted as Guarantees of Payment of Retrospective Premiums,” which was issued for comment in September 1978. Regulatory Guide 9.4 proposes a format for cash flow statements to be submitted by the licensee to demonstrate compliance with title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), subpart 140.21, “Licensee guarantees of payment of deferred premiums.” The method described in Regulatory Guide 9.4 unnecessarily duplicates other financial and insurance verification documents submitted by the licensees to demonstrate compliance with other sections of 10 CFR part 140. Rather than submit separate cash flow and financial assurance statements, licensees may submit proof of sufficient insurance bonding through American Nuclear Insurers or similar insurance groups. This insurance bond meets the requirements of 10 CFR 140.21(a) and eliminates the need for a separate cash flow statement. Start Printed Page 59575
