SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. 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 was 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 ``Guidance to Operators at the 
Controls and to Senior Operators in the Control Room of a Nuclear Power 
Unit'' is temporarily identified by its task number, DG-1194, which 
should be mentioned in all related correspondence.
    This guide describes staffing practices and methods generally 
considered by the NRC to be satisfactory for complying with the 
Commission's regulations that require the presence of an operator at 
the controls of a nuclear power unit and a senior operator in the 
control room. These practices and methods are the result of NRC review 
of operating experience and they reflect the latest methods and 
approaches acceptable to the NRC staff. If future information results 
in alternative methods, the NRC staff will review such methods to 
determine their acceptability.
