The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) is issuing a new guide in the agency's “Regulatory Guide” series.

RG 5.74, “Managing the Safety/Security Interface,” was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG-5021. This guide describes a method that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for use in satisfying the requirements of 10 CFR 73.58, “Safety/Security Interface Requirements for Nuclear Power Reactors,” of 10 CFR Part 73, “Physical Protection of Plants and Materials.” To meet these objectives, NRC licensees shall assess and manage changes to safety and security activities so as to prevent or mitigate potential adverse effects that could negatively impact either plant safety or security.

II. Further Information

In July 2007, DG-5021 was published for public comment. The staff's responses to the public comments received are located in the NRC's Agencywide Documents Access and Management System under Accession Number ML091690082. Electronic copies of RG 5.74 are available through the NRC's public Web site under “Regulatory Guides” at http://www.nrc.gov/​reading-rm/​doc-collections/.

In addition, regulatory guides are available for inspection at the NRC's Public Document Room (PDR) located at 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland.
