Introduction The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) continues to issue Interim Staff Guidance (ISG) documents for fuel cycle facilities. These ISG documents provide clarifying guidance to the NRC staff when reviewing either a license application or a license amendment request for a fuel cycle facility under 10 CFR Part 70. The NRC is soliciting public comments on the attached draft ISG document, which will be considered in the final version or subsequent revisions. II. Summary The purpose of this notice is to provide the public an opportunity to review and comment on a revised draft Interim Staff Guidance document for fuel cycle facilities. A previous version of this draft received substantive comments; therefore, to provide the public an opportunity to review and comment on the revised version, the document is being re-issued in draft. FCSS-Interim Staff Guidance-10 provides guidance to NRC staff relative to determining whether the minimum margin of subcriticality (MoS) is sufficient to provide an adequate assurance of subcriticality for safety to demonstrate compliance with the performance requirements of 10 CFR 70.61(d).
