The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on September 30, 2003 (68 FR 56343).

Draft Regulatory Guide: Issuance, Availability

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued for public 
comment a draft revision to an existing guide in the agency's 
Regulatory Guide Series. This series has been 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 postulated accidents, and data that the staff 
needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses.
    The draft Revision 4 of Regulatory Guide 1.97, entitled ``Criteria 
for Accident Monitoring Instrumentation for Nuclear Power Plants,'' is 
temporarily identified by its task number, DG-1128, which should be 
mentioned in all related correspondence. Like its predecessors, this 
proposed revision describes a method that the NRC staff considers 
acceptable for use in complying with the agency's regulations with 
respect to satisfying criteria for accident monitoring instrumentation 
in nuclear power plants. Specifically, the method described in this 
regulatory guide relates to General Design Criteria 13, 19, and 64, as 
set forth in Appendix A to Title 10, Part 50, of the Code of Federal

    This proposed revision of Regulatory Guide 1.97 represents an

monitoring program to the criteria in this proposed revision.

refer to any nuclear power plant for which the licensee obtained an 
operating license after the NRC issued Revision 4 of Regulatory

plant'' refer to any nuclear plant for which the licensee obtained 
an operating license before the NRC issued Revision 4 of Regulatory 
Guide 1.97.
