DPR– 70 and DPR–75 for the Salem Nuclear Generating Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2, located in Salem County, New Jersey. One of the proposed changes would have permitted a modification to the Salem, Unit No. 1, containment cooling system. Specifically, PSEG proposed to install a new closed-loop chilled water system to supply cooling water to the containment fan cooling units during normal operation. The emergency containment cooling water system would remain the safety-related source of cooling water for postulated accidents. The request involved changes to the system configuration, revisions to the analysis of containment temperature and pressure following a design-basis event, and associated changes to the Technical Specifications. The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on October 12, 2004 (69 FR 60684). However, by letter dated August 11, 2005, PSEG withdrew the abovereferenced proposed change. For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated April 15, 2004, as supplemented by letters dated August 11, 2004, and August 11, 2005.

E5–5471 Filed 10–5–05; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7590–01–P NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION Draft Regulatory Guide: Issuance, Availability The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued for public comment a draft revision of an existing guide in the agency’s Regulatory Guide Series. This series has been developed to describe and make available to the PO 00000 Frm 00121 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 1 of Regulatory Guide 8.38, entitled ‘‘Control of Access to High and Very High Radiation Areas in Nuclear Power Plants,’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–8028, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. Like its predecessors, this proposed revision describes an acceptable program for implementing the requirements of Title 10, Part 20, of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR Part 20), ‘‘Standards for Protection Against Radiation.’’ In particular, 10 CFR 20.1101, ‘‘Radiation Protection Programs,’’ requires licensees to develop and implement a radiation protection program appropriate to the scope of licensed activities and potential hazards. To augment that requirement, 10 CFR 20.2102, ‘‘Records of Radiation Protection Programs,’’ requires licensees to document those radiation protection programs. An important aspect of such programs at nuclear power plants is the institution of a system of controls that includes procedures, training, audits, and physical barriers to protect workers against unplanned exposures in high and very high radiation areas. Toward that end, 10 CFR 20.1601 provides specific requirements applicable to controlling access to high radiation areas, while 10 CFR 20.1602 provides additional requirements to prevent unauthorized or inadvertent entry into very high radiation areas. Appendix A to the proposed revised guide augments this guidance with recommended procedures for good operating practices for underwater diving operations in high and very high radiation areas. In addition, Appendix B summarizes past experience with very high and potentially very high radiation areas, so that pertinent historical information is readily accessible. Dose rates in areas of nuclear power plants that are accessible to individuals can vary over several orders of magnitude. High radiation areas, where personnel can receive doses in excess of the regulatory limits in a relatively short time, require special controls. Very high radiation areas require much stricter monitoring and controls, because failure to adequately implement effective radiological controls can result in radiation doses that result in a significant health risk. Thus, it is important that licensees have effective E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1
