ACTION: Notice of Issuance and Availability of Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–1186. AGENCY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued for public comment a draft regulatory 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 (DG), titled, ‘‘Measuring, Evaluating, and Reporting Radioactive Materials in Liquid and Gaseous Effluents and Solid Wastes,’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–1186, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. DG–1186, which is proposed Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 1.21, describes a method that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for use in measuring, evaluating, and reporting on radioactivity in effluent discharges and in solid radioactive waste shipments. The regulatory guide also provides guidance on determining and reporting the public dose from nuclear power plant operations. The regulatory basis for the radiological effluent control program is established in Title 10, Section 20.1501, ‘‘Surveys,’’ of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 20.1501); 10 CFR 50.36a, ‘‘Technical Specifications on Effluents from Nuclear Power Reactors;’’ PO 00000 Frm 00134 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65705 and 10 CFR 20.1302, ‘‘Compliance with Dose Limits for Individual Members of the Public.’’ The 10 CFR 20.1501 regulations require that surveys be made that are reasonable under the circumstances to evaluate the magnitude and extent of radiation levels, concentrations or quantities of radioactive material, and the potential radiological hazards. The regulations at 10 CFR 50.36a require plant technical specifications with operating procedures for the control of effluents and the reporting of the quantity of each of the principal radionuclides released to unrestricted areas in liquid and gaseous effluents and other information used to estimate the maximum potential annual radiation doses to the public from effluent releases. In 10 CFR 20.1302, the NRC establishes requirements for surveys in the unrestricted and controlled areas and for radioactive materials in effluents released to unrestricted and controlled areas to demonstrate compliance with the dose limits for individual members of the public. This regulatory guide describes methods for implementing these requirements. II. Further Information The NRC staff is soliciting comments on DG–1186. Comments may be accompanied by relevant information or supporting data, and should mention DG–1186 in the subject line. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be made available to the public in their entirety through the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued for public 
comment a draft regulatory 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 (DG), titled, ``Measuring, Evaluating, 
and Reporting Radioactive Materials in Liquid and Gaseous Effluents and 
Solid Wastes,'' is temporarily identified by its task number, DG-1186, 
which should be mentioned in all related correspondence.
    DG-1186, which is proposed Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 1.21, 
describes a method that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for 
use in measuring, evaluating, and reporting on radioactivity in 
effluent discharges and in solid radioactive waste shipments. The 
regulatory guide also provides guidance on determining and reporting 
the public dose from nuclear power plant operations.
    The regulatory basis for the radiological effluent control program 
is established in Title 10, Section 20.1501, ``Surveys,'' of the Code 
of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 20.1501); 10 CFR 50.36a, ``Technical 
Specifications on Effluents from Nuclear Power Reactors;'' and 10 CFR 
20.1302, ``Compliance with Dose Limits for Individual Members of the 
Public.'' The 10 CFR 20.1501 regulations require that surveys be made 
that are reasonable under the circumstances to evaluate the magnitude 
and extent of radiation levels, concentrations or quantities of 
radioactive material, and the potential radiological hazards. The 
regulations at 10 CFR 50.36a require plant technical specifications 
with operating procedures for the control of effluents and the 
reporting of the quantity of each of the principal radionuclides 
released to unrestricted areas in liquid and gaseous effluents and 
other information used to estimate the maximum potential annual

20.1302, the NRC establishes requirements for surveys in the 
unrestricted and controlled areas and for radioactive materials in 
effluents released to unrestricted and controlled areas to demonstrate 
compliance with the dose limits for individual members of the public. 
This regulatory guide describes methods for implementing these 
requirements.
