AGENCY:

Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION:

Interim staff guidance; withdrawal.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is announcing the withdrawal of several Interim Staff Guidance (ISG) documents associated with fuel cycle facilities. These documents are being withdrawn because the guidance contained in the documents have since been incorporated into NUREG-1520, “Standard Review Plan for Fuel Cycle Facilities License Applications.”

DATES:

The withdrawal of the Fuel Cycle Safety, Safeguards, and Environmental Review ISG documents were issued on December 4, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

The NRC is withdrawing select Fuel Cycle Safety, Safeguards, and Environmental Review ISG documents because the content was incorporated in NUREG-1520, “Standard Review Plan for Fuel Cycle Facilities License Applications” (ADAMS Accession No. ML15176A258). The content in NUREG-1520 supersedes the original ISG and therefore these documents are being withdrawn. In some instances, the ISG was incorporated in its entirety and at other times only sections that were still relevant at the date of publish were included. The following ISG documents are being withdrawn:

FCSS-ISG-01, “Qualitative Criteria for Evaluation of Likelihood” (ADAMS Accession No. ML051520236), was incorporated in NUREG-1520, Chapter 3, Appendix B, “Qualitative Criteria for Evaluation of Likelihood.”

FCSS-ISG-03, “Nuclear Criticality Safety Performance Requirements and Double Contingency Principle” (ADAMS Accession No. ML050690302), was incorporated in NUREG-1520, Chapter 5, Appendix A, “Nuclear Criticality Performance Requirements and Double-Contingency Principle.”

FCSS-ISG-05, “Additional Reporting Requirements of 10 CFR 70.74” (ADAMS Accession No. ML053630228), is superseded by NUREG-1520, Chapter 5, Section 5.4.1, “Nuclear Criticality Safety; Acceptance Criteria; Regulatory Requirements.”

FCSS-ISG-08, “Natural Phenomena Hazards” (ADAMS Accession No. ML052650305), was incorporated into NUREG-1520, Chapter 3, Appendix D, “Natural Phenomena Hazards.”

FCSS-ISG-09, “Initiating Event Frequencies” (ADAMS Accession No. ML051520323), was incorporated into NUREG-1520, Chapter 3, Appendix C, “Initiating Event Frequency.”

FCSS-ISG-10, “Justification for Minimum Margin of Subcriticality for Safety” (ADAMS Accession No. ML061650370), was incorporated into NUREG-1520, Chapter 5, Appendix B, “Justification for Minimum Margin of Subcriticality for Safety.”
