Download as PDF 56940 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 188 / Thursday, September 29, 2005 / Notices addenda every year, and Code Cases every quarter. Revision 14 of Regulatory Guide 1.147 identifies the Code Cases that the NRC has determined to be acceptable alternatives to applicable provisions of Section XI. For this revision, the NRC staff reviewed Section XI Code Cases listed in Supplement 12 to the 1998 Edition of the ASME BPV Code through Supplement 6 to the 2001 Edition. The newly approved Code Cases and revisions to existing Code Cases will be incorporated by reference into 10 CFR 50.55a(b), which identifies the latest editions and addenda of Section XI that the NRC has approved for use. Code Cases approved by the NRC may be used voluntarily by licensees without a request for NRC authorization, provided that they are used with any identified limitations or modifications. Section XI Code Cases not yet endorsed by the NRC may be implemented through 10 CFR 50.55a(a)(3), which permits the use of alternatives to the Code requirements referenced in 10 CFR 50.55a, provided that the proposed alternatives result in an acceptable level of quality and safety, and their use is authorized by the Director of the NRC’s Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation. On August 3, 2004, the NRC staff published a draft of this guide as Draft Regulatory Guide DG–1125.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In September 2003, the NRC published a 
three-volume NUREG report, NUREG-1757, ``Consolidated NMSS 
Decommissioning Guidance.'' That report provides guidance on: planning 
and implementing license termination under the License Termination 
Rule, in 10 CFR part 20, subpart E; complying with the radiological 
criteria for license termination; and complying with the requirements 
for financial assurance and recordkeeping for decommissioning and 
timeliness in decommissioning materials facilities. The draft 
Supplement 1, ``Consolidated NMSS Decommissioning Guidance: Updates to 
Implement the License Termination Rule Analysis'' (NUREG-1757, 
Supplement 1), is the first of periodic updates to reflect current NRC 
decommissioning policy.
    Draft Supplement 1 provides proposed additions and updates to 
guidance addressing the following issues, which were explored in an NRC 
staff analysis of the implementation of the License Termination Rule: 
restricted use and institutional controls; on-site disposal of 
radioactive materials; scenario justification based on reasonably 
foreseeable land use; intentional mixing of contaminated soil; and 
removal of material after license termination. It also provides new and 
revised guidance to address several other issues. NRC is seeking public 
comment in order to receive feedback from the widest range of 
interested parties and to ensure that all information relevant to 
developing the document is available to the NRC staff. The NRC will 
review public comments received on the draft document. Suggested 
changes will be incorporated, where appropriate, and a final document 
will be issued for use. When finalized, the guidance is intended for 
use by NRC staff, licensees, and the public.
    Draft Supplement 1 is issued for comment only and is not intended 
for interim use.
