SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing Regulatory 
Guide (RG) 1.16, ``Reporting of Operating Information--Appendix A 
Technical Specifications.'' Revision 4 of the Regulatory Guide was 
issued for comment in August 1975 and never finalized. The guide 
provides a description of each of the periodic reports licensees are 
required to submit to demonstrate compliance with the reporting 
requirements listed in Appendix A, ``Technical Specifications Related 
to Health and Safety'' of the license.
    Regulatory Guide 1.16 is being withdrawn because it is no longer 
needed. Technical specification reporting requirements for licensees 
are contained in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 50, 
``Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities'' (10 CFR 
Part 50) as well as other parts of 10 CFR Chapter I, ``Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission.'' Guidance on the content and frequency of 
required reports is contained in Chapter 5, ``Administrative 
Controls,'' of the standard technical specifications in the following 
NUREGs:
     NUREG-1430, Volume 1, ``Standard Technical Specifications, 
Babcock and Wilcox Plants,''
     NUREG-1431, Volume 1, ``Standard Technical Specifications, 
Westinghouse Plants,''
     NUREG-1432, Volume 1, ``Standard Technical Specifications, 
Combustion Engineering Plants,''
     NUREG-1433, Volume 1, Standard Technical Specifications, 
General Electric Plants, BWR/4,'' and
     NUREG-1434, Volume 1, Standard Technical Specifications, 
General Electric Plants, BWR/6.''

II. Further Information

    Withdrawal of RG 1.16 does not, in and of itself, alter any prior 
or existing licensing commitments based on its use. The guidance 
provided in this RG is no longer necessary. Regulatory Guides may be 
withdrawn when their guidance is superseded by Congressional action, 
the methods or techniques described in the Regulatory Guide no longer 
describe a preferred approach, or the Regulatory Guide does not provide 
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 US NRC PDR, Washington, DC 20555-0001. You can reach the 
staff by telephone at 301-415-4737 or 800-397-4209, by fax at 301-415-
3548, and by e-mail to pdr.resource@nrc.gov.
    Regulatory guides are not copyrighted, and NRC approval is not 
required to reproduce them.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 4th day of August, 2009.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
