Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 146 / Friday, July 31, 2009 / Notices PWALKER on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES proposed Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 4.2, Supplement 1, dated September 2000. This guidance document provides general procedures for the preparation of environmental reports (ER), which are submitted as part of an application for the renewal of a nuclear power plant operating license in accordance with Title 10, Part 54, ‘‘Requirements for Renewal of Operating Licenses for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR part 54). This regulatory guide amends Supplement 1 to Regulatory Guide 4.2, ‘‘Preparation of Supplemental Environmental Reports for Applications to Renew Nuclear Power Plant Operating Licenses,’’ issued September 2000. Use of this regulatory guide will help to ensure the completeness of the information provided in the ER, assist staff of the NRC and others in locating pertinent information, and facilitate the environmental review process. However, the NRC does not require conformance with the procedures, which are provided for guidance only. II. Further Information The NRC staff is soliciting comments on DG–4015. Comments may be accompanied by relevant information or supporting data and should mention DG–4015 in the subject line.
