The examples under each resource area are not intended to be all inclusive, nor is this list an indication that environmental impacts will occur. The list is presented to facilitate comments on the scope of the GEIS. Additions to, or deletions from, this list may occur as a result of the public scoping process. 4.0 Scoping Meetings This NOI is to encourage public involvement in the GEIS process and to solicit public comments on the proposed scope and content of the GEIS. NRC will hold public scoping meetings as described above to solicit both oral and written comments from interested parties. Scoping is an early and open process designed to determine the range of actions, alternatives, and potential impacts to be considered in the GEIS, and to identify the significant issues related to the proposed action. Scoping is intended to solicit input from the public and other agencies so that the analysis can be more clearly focused on issues of genuine concern. The principal goals of the scoping process are to: —Identify public concerns; —Ensure that concerns are identified early and are properly studied; —Identify alternatives that will be examined; —Identify significant issues that need to be analyzed; and —Eliminate unimportant issues. The scoping meetings will begin with NRC staff providing a description of NRC’s role and mission followed by a brief overview of NRC’s environmental review process and goals of the scoping meeting. The bulk of the meeting will be allotted for attendees to make oral comments. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:50 Jul 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 5.0 Scoping Comments Week of July 23, 2007 Written comments should be mailed to the address listed above in the ADDRESSES section. The NRC staff will prepare a scoping summary report in which it will summarize public comments. The NRC will make the scoping summary report and projectrelated materials available for public review through its electronic reading room: http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/ adams.html. Further, an NRC Web site will be established in the near future to keep the public abreast of the current schedule and to post important documents. 6.0 The NEPA Process The GEIS will be prepared according to NEPA and NRC’s NEPA implementing regulations contained in 10 CFR part 51. After the scoping process is complete, the NRC will prepare a draft GEIS. The draft GEIS is scheduled to be published by April 2008. A 45-day comment period on the draft GEIS is planned, and a public meeting(s) to receive comments will be held approximately three weeks after publication of the draft GEIS. Availability of the draft GEIS, the dates of the public comment period, and information about the public meeting will be announced in the Federal Register, on NRC’s Web page, and in the local news media. The final GEIS is expected to be published in January 2009 and will incorporate, as appropriate, public comments received on the draft GEIS. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 20th day of July, 2007. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Gregory F. Suber, Branch Chief, Environmental Review Branch, Environmental Protection and Performance Assessment Directorate, Division of Waste Management and Environmental Protection, Office of Federal and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs.

Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued for public comment a draft guide in the agency’s Regulatory Guide Series. This series has been developed to describe and make available to the 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 regulatory guide, entitled ‘‘Managing the Safety/Security Interface,’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–5021, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. This draft regulatory guide provides an approach acceptable to the NRC for managing the safety/security interface at nuclear power plants. Title 10, Section 73.58, of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR part 73), ‘‘Physical Protection of Plants and Materials,’’ requires NRC licensees to assess and manage safety and security activities. If implemented by licensees, the approach and examples described in this guidance would provide reasonable assurance of adequate protection for the interface of safety and security, but are not intended to be all-inclusive, and licensees may employ alternative methods for implementing NRC regulations. This draft regulatory guide would be applicable to operating reactors licensed in accordance with 10 CFR Parts 50 and 52, and new applicants should consider this guidance in preparing an application for a combined license (COL) under 10 CFR Part 52. The licensee bears sole responsibility for ensuring that the potential for adverse affects on safety and security is managed and assessed to provide adequate protection of public health and safety, protection of the environment, and common defense and security. Licensee questions regarding regulatory requirements for the management of safety/security interface should be directed to the appropriate NRC Headquarters or Regional staff. Dated: July 19, 2007. R. Michelle Schroll, Office of the Secretary.
