I. Introduction

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing draft Regulatory Issue Summary (RIS) “Implementation of New Final Rule, Protection of Safeguards Information” published March 12, 2009 (74 FR 10786). This draft RIS provided stakeholders information concerning the changes to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Parts 73.21, 73.22 and 73.23. This draft RIS provided clarifying information of the impact of the new rule (effective date February 23, 2009). The NRC will not pursue finalizing the draft RIS because the NRC has issued Draft Regulatory Guide (DG-5034) in the Federal Register for public comment (74 FR 39343, 39354) to assist licensees in meeting the requirements of 10 CFR 73.21, 73.22, and 73.23. Therefore, the RIS is no longer needed.
