SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

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 Start Printed Page 24539postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses.

The draft regulatory guide (DG), entitled, “Thermal Overload Protection for Electric Motors On Motor-Operated Valves,” is temporarily identified by its task number, DG-1264, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. DG-1264 is proposed Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 1.106, dated March 1977.

This regulatory guide describes a method acceptable to NRC's staff for complying with the above criteria with regard to the application of thermal overload protection devices that are integral with the motor starter for electric motors on motor-operated valves. This method would ensure that the thermal overload protection devices will not needlessly prevent the motor from performing its safety-related function.
