Download as PDF 48382 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 153 / Tuesday, August 10, 2010 / Notices sroberts on DSKB9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES parts of the agency’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. Regulatory Guide 1.216, ‘‘Containment Structural Integrity Evaluation for Internal Pressure Loadings Above Design-Basis Pressure,’’ was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–1203. This guide describes methods that the NRC staff considers acceptable for (1) predicting the internal pressure capacity for containment structures above the design-basis accident pressure, (2) demonstrating containment structural integrity related to combustible gas control, and (3) demonstrating containment structural integrity to meet the Commission’s performance goals related to the prevention and mitigation of severe accidents. It provides guidance on methods for satisfying requirements in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 52, ‘‘Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants.’’ Requirements in 10 CFR 52.47, ‘‘Contents of Applications; Technical Information,’’ and in 10 CFR 52.79, ‘‘Contents of Applications; Technical Information in Final Safety Analysis Report [FSAR],’’ relate to the structural integrity of containments under internal pressurization that pertain to the containment structural capacity above design-basis pressures, to combustible gas control, and to the prevention and mitigation of severe accidents. This guidance is intended to be consistent with the Commission’s goals and other related guidance, as discussed in the remainder of this section. This regulatory guide does not address requirements and guidance for the structural evaluation of containments for design-basis pressure. II. Further Information In December 2008, DG–1203 was published with a public comment period of 60 days from the issuance of the guide. The public comment period closed on February 9, 2009. The staff’s responses to the public comments received are located in the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System under Accession Number ML092800554.

In order to provide the best service to OPM’s customers, one form is required and two forms are optional. The mandatory form, Privacy Release, enables representatives of the Ombudsman to obtain any information requested, examine and/or copy any records related to a request for assistance to identify, facilitate and timely resolve individuals’ claims, concerns or complaints by OPM customers and employees. This allows OPM’s representatives to properly perform their role and not violate customer privacy without the proper authorization. The second form, Third Party Authorization, allows customers of the Ombudsman to designate someone in addition to themselves, or other than themselves, to give and receive information about their request for assistance. The Third Party Authorization will not be used in every request for assistance.
