The exception to this small working group approach was the resolution of the issues associated with the use of Digital Instrumentation and Control in safety and process settings. Since this issue was far reaching, that could impact other nuclear arenas, some already addressing this area already pursuing research in this area, it was proposed that industry participate in the current steering committees involved in addressing these issues and NRC will facilitate interested industry members admission/seating on these committees so that their interests can be heard.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) held a public workshop with 
the Nuclear Energy Institute and other stakeholders on June 14, 2007, 
to discuss certain implementation issues related to the implementation 
of subpart H of 10 CFR part 70: (1) Part 70, Appendix A Reporting, (2) 
refinement of the definition of Uranium Solubility under part 70, (3) 
the use of Digital Instrumentation and Control in safety and process 
settings, (4) the Sec.  70.72 Facility Change Process, and (5) the 
possible Enforcement Policy Revisions.
    Of the path forward for each of these five issues, four included a 
short term resolution to address the problem via small working groups 
comprised of industry and NRC representatives producing a product 
(white paper) which would ultimately be reviewed/approved by management 
representatives from both NRC and NEI and/or Industry representative 
management with an opportunity for members of the public to participate 
if desired. The exception to this small working group approach was the 
resolution of the issues associated with the use of Digital 
Instrumentation and Control in safety and process settings. Since this 
issue was far reaching, that could impact other nuclear arenas, some 
already addressing this area already pursuing research in this area, it 
was proposed that industry participate in the current steering 
committees involved in addressing these issues and NRC will facilitate 
interested industry members admission/seating on these committees so 
that their interests can be heard.
    In addition to the small working group approach, for Enforcement 
Policy Revisions, a multiple day public workshop in Region II with 
participation by the NRC's Offices of Enforcement and General Counsel 
should be held to establish the limits to what can be changed in the 
Enforcement Policy by the small working group.

II. Summary

    The purpose of this notice is to provide notice of the date and 
location of the first kickoff meeting of these small working groups as 
these white papers are developed. The number of persons participating 
in these groups will be limited to one or two; therefore, the first one 
or two person expressing interest in a particular group will have 
priority for participation in the working group; however, all meetings 
of these groups will be noticed and open to the public. Please contact 
the staff contact listed above to express your interest in 
participating in one or more of these working groups.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 14th day of August 2007.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
