I. Introduction

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing Draft Revision 1A to NUREG-1536, “Standard Review Plan for Spent Fuel Dry Storage Systems at a General License Facility.” Its previous title, “Standard Review Plan for Dry Cask Storage Systems,” has been changed to better reflect its applicability. This revision incorporates Interim Staff Guidance (ISG) documents 1 through 22, as applicable, as well as other current NRC staff practices (e.g., addition of a materials chapter) utilized in its review of licensee integrated safety analyses, license applications or amendment requests, or other related licensing activities for dry storage systems under 10 CFR Part 72. Additionally, the guidance contained in the Review Procedures section of each chapter of the subject document has been risk-informed to assist the NRC staff in prioritizing its review with respect to relative level of effort, and to increase efficiency.

The purpose of this notice is to provide the public with an opportunity to review and solicit comments on the Draft NUREG-1536, Revision 1A, “Standard Review Plan for Spent Fuel Dry Storage Systems at a General License Facility.” These comments will be considered in the final version or subsequent revisions.

Comments received after this date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but only those comments received on or before the due date can be assured consideration. Comments can also be submitted by telephone, fax, or e-mail to the following: Telephone: (301) 492-3324; fax number: (301) 492-3331; e-mail: Ron.Parkhill@NRC.gov.
