Download as PDF wwhite on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES 3346 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 13 / Friday, January 20, 2006 / Notices position on IEEE Std 7–4.3.2–2003, ‘‘Standard Criteria for Digital Computers in Safety Systems of Nuclear Power Generating Stations,’’ which was prepared by Working Group SC 6.4, ‘‘Application of Programmable Digital Computers to Safety Systems,’’ of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Nuclear Power Engineering Committee. This standard evolved from IEEE Std 7–4.3.2–1993 and reflects advances in digital technology. It also represents a continued effort by IEEE to support the specification, design, and implementation of computers in safety systems of nuclear power plants. In addition, IEEE Std 7–4.3.2–2003 specifies computer-specific requirements to supplement the criteria and requirements of IEEE Std 603–1998, ‘‘Standard Criteria for Safety Systems for Nuclear Power Generating Stations.’’ In Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 1.152, the staff endorses IEEE Std 7– 4.3.2–2003, with certain exceptions, as an acceptable method for satisfying the NRC’s regulations with respect to (1) high functional reliability and design requirements for computers used in safety systems of nuclear power plants, and (2) independence between safety software and nonsafety software residing on the same computer. The NRC previously solicited public comments on this revised guide by publishing a Federal Register notice (69 FR 75359) concerning Draft Regulatory Guide DG–1130 on December 16, 2004. Following the closure of the public comment period on March 14, 2005, the staff considered all stakeholder comments in the course of preparing Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 1.152. The NRC staff encourages and welcomes comments and suggestions in connection with improvements to published regulatory guides, as well as items for inclusion in regulatory guides that are currently being developed. You may submit comments by any of the following methods. Mail comments to: Rules and Directives Branch, Office of Administration, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555– 0001. Hand-deliver comments to: Rules and Directives Branch, Office of Administration, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852, between 7:30 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. on Federal workdays.
