The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for public comment a draft guide in the agency's “Regulatory Guide” series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public such information as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC's regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses.
The draft regulatory guide (DG) is temporarily identified by its task number, DG-2004, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. DG-2004 is proposed Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 2.6, dated March 1983. Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 50.34(b)(6)(v) (10 CFR 50.34(b)(6)(v)) requires that each application for a license to operate a facility include in a final safety analysis report, along with other information, the applicant's plans for coping with emergencies, including the items specified in Appendix E, “Emergency Planning and Preparedness for Production and Utilization Facilities” to 10 CFR Part 50, “Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities.” In addition, 10 CFR 50.54(q) requires licensees to follow and maintain in effect emergency plans that meet the requirements of Appendix E. This guide provides licensees and applicants with a method that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for use in complying with the Commission's regulations on the content of emergency plans for research and test reactors.
II. Further Information
The NRC staff is soliciting comments on DG-2004. Comments may be accompanied by relevant information or supporting data and should mention DG-2004 in the subject line. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be made available to the public in their entirety through the NRC's Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS).
Comments would be most helpful if received by May 31, 2010. Comments received after that date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but the NRC is able to ensure consideration only for comments received on or before this date. Although a time limit is given, comments and suggestions in connection with items for inclusion in guides currently being developed or improvements in all published guides are encouraged at any time.
You may submit comments by any one of the following methods. Please include Docket ID NRC-2010-0144 in the subject line of your comments. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be posted on the NRC Web site and on the Federal rulemaking Web site Regulations.gov. Because your comments will not be edited to remove any identifying or contact information, the NRC cautions you against including any information in your submission that you do not want to be publicly disclosed.
The NRC requests that any party soliciting or aggregating comments received from other persons for submission to the NRC inform those persons that the NRC will not edit their comments to remove any identifying or contact information, and therefore, they should not include any information in their comments that they do not want publicly disclosed.
