Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).


Solicitation of public comment.


The NRC is soliciting public comment on NUREG-0800, “Standard Review Plan for the Review of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power Plants,” on a proposed Revision 1 to Standard Review Plan (SRP), Section 13.6.3 on “Physical Security—Early Site Permit,” (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML100980132). The Office of Nuclear Security and Incident Response is revising SRP Section 13.6.3, which updates the initial issuance of this section, dated March 2007, to reflect the changes of the recently issued Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 73, Power Reactor Security Rule (published in the Federal Register (FR) on March 27, 2009 (74 FR 13926). The previous version of this SRP section was published in March 2007 as initial issuance (ADAMS Accession No. ML070720310).

The NRC staff issues notices to facilitate timely implementation of the current staff guidance and to facilitate activities associated with the review of amendment applications and review of design certification and combined license applications for the Office of New Reactors. The NRC staff intends to incorporate the final approved guidance into the next revision of NUREG-0800, SRP Section 13.6.3, Revision 1 and Regulatory Guide 1.206, “Combined License Applications for Nuclear Power Plants (LWR Edition),” June 2007.
