E7–9650 Filed 5–17–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7590–01–P NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION Regulatory Guide Update Prioritization U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. ACTION: Regulatory guide update prioritization. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is currently reviewing and updating numerous guides in the agency’s Regulatory Guide (RG) Series. This series has been developed to describe and make available to the public 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 license amendments, permits, and licenses. The purpose of the ongoing review and update of the NRC’s RGs is to ensure that the RGs contain complete, accurate, and current guidance for use by licensees and prospective applicants. The established regulatory guidance (as set forth in establishing new and revised RGs) provides a consistent approach for the staff to ensure that the regulatory requirements are met and thereby continue to protect the health and safety of the public and the environment. The NRC reviewed all of the approximately 480 RGs and draft RGs (DGs) to determine those that needed to be revised or developed. This resulted in categorizing the RGs and DGs into E:\FR\FM\18MYN1.SGM 18MYN1
