II. Background

On March 9, 2012 (77 FR 14446), the NRC requested public comments on draft LR-ISG-2011-03. Comments were to be submitted by April 9, 2012. By letter dated March 27, 2012, the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) requested the comment period be closed on April 20, 2012. The NRC staff is granting NEI's request.
