SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: These meetings will be conducted jointly by 
the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency (FEMA), and will address four separate documents that 
have been proposed by these two agencies to address emergency planning 
and preparedness for nuclear power plants. These documents address both 
onsite (the plants themselves) and offsite (State, local, and emergency 
responder) planning and preparedness. The NRC will be soliciting 
comments on its notice of proposed rulemaking entitled ``Enhancements 
to Emergency Preparedness Regulations'' (published at 74 FR 23254 on 
May 18, 2009) and ``Interim Staff Guidance: Emergency Planning for 
Nuclear Power Plants'' (a notice of availability was published at 74 FR 
23221 on May 18, 2009). Both of these documents are available at http://www.regulations.gov/search/index.jsp (Docket ID NRC-2008-0122).
    FEMA will be taking comments on the joint NRC/FEMA policy document 
entitled ``Criteria for Preparation and Evaluation of Radiological 
Emergency Response Plans and Preparedness in Support of Nuclear Power 
Plants; NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1/Rev. 1 Supplement 4 (Supplement 4), and 
the ``FEMA Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program Manual'' (REPP 
Manual). On May 18, 2009, at 74 FR 23198, FEMA published a Federal 
Register Notice informing the public that FEMA is accepting comments on 
these documents. The documents are available online at http://www.regulations.gov/search/index.jsp (Docket ID FEMA-2008-0022).
    NUREG-0654 is a joint NRC/FEMA policy document that contains the 
Evaluation Criteria that FEMA and the NRC use to determine compliance 
with the 16 Planning Standards that are located in FEMA's regulations 
at 44 CFR 350.5, and the NRC's regulations at 10 CFR part 50. The 
agencies use these Planning Standards, and associated Evaluation 
Criteria, to measure the adequacy of emergency preparedness plans of 
nuclear power plant owners and operators and the State, local, and 
Tribal jurisdictions in which they are sited.
    Supplement 4 revises and provides additional offsite planning 
guidance for emergency preparedness programs at the Nation's nuclear 
power plants, including the establishment of backup means for alert and 
notification, and increased coordination between licensees and offsite 
responders. The REPP Manual provides additional guidance directed to 
State, local, and Tribal jurisdictions. The REPP Manual consolidates 
all of the FEMA Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Program's 
many operative guidance and policy documents into one location, and 
provides additional guidance on the proposed changes in Supplement 4. 
The substance of FEMA's proposed policies aligns with changes proposed 
in both the NRC Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Interim Staff 
Guidance.
    The purpose of these public meetings is to (1) jointly introduce 
the proposed regulations and draft guidance related to enhancing 
emergency preparedness (EP) regulations, and introduce NRC and FEMA 
draft guidance documents jointly and to explain the alignment of these 
documents; (2) answer questions about the proposed rule and draft 
guidance documents and to describe the next steps in the rulemaking and 
guidance document processes; (3) ensure openness during the EP 
rulemaking and guidance document processes; (4) provide additional 
opportunities for public participation in the EP rulemaking and 
guidance document processes; and, (5) build positive relations, 
confidence, and trust in the rulemaking and guidance document 
processes.
