SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for public 
comment a draft 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) is temporarily identified by its 
task number, DG-1240, which should be mentioned in all related 
correspondence. DG-1240 is a proposed new regulatory guide.
    10 CFR 50.65, ``Requirements for Monitoring the Effectiveness of 
Maintenance at Nuclear Power Plants,'' (Maintenance Rule), states that 
``Each holder of an operating license for a nuclear power plant * * * 
shall monitor the performance or condition of structures, systems, or 
components * * * in a manner sufficient to provide reasonable assurance 
that these structures, systems, and components * * * are capable of 
fulfilling their intended functions.'' This guide describes a method 
that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for condition monitoring 
of electric cables for nuclear power plants, for those licensees 
choosing to use monitoring to meet the requirements of the Maintenance 
Rule.
