SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing 
Regulatory Guide 6.8, ``Identification Plaque for Irretrievable Well-
Logging Sources,'' published in October 1978. Regulatory Guide 6.8 
provides guidance on acceptable design and mounting practices of the 
plaques, which are placed at the surface of wells to indicate the 
presence of an irretrievable well-logging source. The NRC is 
withdrawing this regulatory guide because it is no longer required.
    Regulatory Guide 6.8 references Title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR), Sections 30 and 70, which no longer contain 
guidance for design or mounting of identification plaques. The current 
regulation regarding the identification plaques is found in 10 CFR 
39.15, ``Agreement with Well Owner or Operator.'' Regulatory Guide 6.8 
is no longer required because the current regulations in 10 CFR 
39.15(a)(5) provide a specific description for the design and mounting 
of identification plaques for irretrievable well-logging sources. The 
instruction in 10 CFR 39.15(a)(5) is sufficient without further 
guidance.

II. Further Information

    The withdrawal of Regulatory Guide 6.8 does not alter any prior or 
existing licensing commitments based on its use. The guidance provided 
in this regulatory guide is no longer necessary. Regulatory guides may 
be withdrawn when their guidance is superseded by congressional action 
or no longer provides useful information.
    Regulatory guides are available for inspection or downloading 
through the NRC's public Web site under ``Regulatory Guides'' in the 
NRC's Electronic Reading Room at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-
collections. Regulatory guides are also available for inspection at the 
NRC's Public Document Room (PDR), Room O-1 F21, One White Flint North, 
11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852-2738. The PDR's mailing 
address is U.S. NRC PDR, Washington, DC 20555-0001. You can reach the
