Regulatory guide; withdrawal.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing Regulatory Guide (RG) 10.1, “Compilation of Reporting Requirements for Persons Subject to NRC Regulations.” (ML003740185). This guide is being withdrawn because it is no longer accurate or current. Regulatory Guide 10.1 provides a summary of the reporting requirements in existence at the time of issuance and becomes outdated upon the first change to any NRC reporting requirement after issuance.
The effective date of the withdrawal of Regulatory Guide 10.1 is June 26, 2014.

Start Supplemental Information
The NRC is withdrawing RG 10.1 because it is no longer accurate or Start Printed Page 38077current. Regulatory Guide 10.1 provides a summary of the reporting requirements in existence at the time of issuance and becomes outdated upon the first change to any NRC reporting requirement after issuance. The most recent version of RG 10.1, Revision 4, was issued in October 1981 (ADAMS Accession No. ML003740185). Regulatory Guide 10.1 provides a compilation of reporting requirements applicable to the various types of NRC licensees and other persons subject to NRC regulations. It is impractical to continue to maintain current and accurate information in a timely manner, and is duplicative of the information that is already provided in a timely manner in the NRC's regulations in Chapter 1 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR).
II. Additional Information
The withdrawal of RG 10.1 does not alter any prior or existing licensing commitments based on its use. The guidance provided in RG 10.1 is no longer necessary. Regulatory guides may be withdrawn when their guidance no longer provides useful information, or is superseded by technological innovations, Congressional actions, or other events.
Regulatory guides are revised for a variety of reasons and the withdrawal of an RG should be thought of as the final revision of the guide. Although a regulatory guide is withdrawn, current licensees may continue to use it, and withdrawal does not affect any existing licenses or agreements. Withdrawal of a regulatory guide means that the regulatory guide should not be used for future NRC licensing activities. Changes to existing licenses can be accomplished using other regulatory products.
