Attachment 1—Staff Position and Rationale for the Proposed License Renewal Interim Staff Guidance LR– ISG–2006–02: Staff Guidance on Acceptance Review for Environmental Reports Associated With License Renewal Applications Staff Position The NRC staff intends to use a checklist of acceptance criteria when evaluating environmental reports submitted with license renewal applications. This guidance summarizes the 10 CFR Part 51 requirements for environmental reports submitted with license renewal applications, and provides a checklist that documents the review process used by NRC staff to verify the completeness of these reports. Rationale The NRC developed a checklist of the requirements in 10 CFR Part 51 to document the NRC staff’s acceptance review standards regarding the information that needs to be included in an environmental report. The staff finds that the utilization of the guidance provided in the checklist will facilitate consistency and efficiency in the NRC staff’s acceptance reviews of environmental reports submitted with license renewal applications. Attachment 2—Proposed License Renewal Interim Staff Guidance lR– ISG–2006–02: Staff Guidance on Acceptance Review for Environmental Reports Associated With License Renewal Applications Introduction Each applicant for renewal of a license to operate a nuclear power plant is required to submit with its application a separate environmental report (ER) in accordance with Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 54.23). As stated in 10 CFR 54.23, the ER must comply with the requirements of Subpart A of 10 CFR Part 51. The requirements governing the contents of an ER submitted at the operating license renewal stage are specified in 10 CFR 51.45 and 10 CFR 51.53(c).
