The draft regulatory guide (DG) is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–8035, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. DG–8035 is proposed Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 8.2, dated August 1973. This guide provides general guidance that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for the administrative practices associated with surveys and monitoring of ionizing radiation in licensed institutions, intended primarily for administrative and management personnel in organizations that are involved in, or are planning to initiate, activities involving the handling of radioactive materials or radiation. The administrative requirements for radiation monitoring are mainly specified in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 20, ‘‘Standards for Protection against Radiation’’ (10 CFR part 20), and are applicable to all NRC-licensed activities. This part requires surveys in order to evaluate the significance of radiation levels that may be present. In addition, it requires radiation monitoring in order to obtain measurements for the evaluation of potential exposures and doses. II. Further Information The NRC staff is soliciting comments on DG–8035. Comments may be accompanied by relevant information or supporting data and should mention DG–8035 in the subject line. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be made available to the public in their entirety through the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS). Comments would be most helpful if received by October 29, 2010. Comments received after that date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but the NRC is able to ensure consideration only for comments received on or before this date. Although a time limit is given, comments and suggestions in connection with items for inclusion in guides currently being developed or improvements in all published guides are encouraged at any time.

The license provides, among other things, that the facility is subject to the rules, regulations, and orders of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) now or hereafter in effect. The facility consists of a boiling-water reactor located in Nemaha County, Nebraska. 2.0 Request/Action Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), part 73, ‘‘Physical protection of plants and materials,’’ section 73.55, ‘‘Requirements for physical protection of licensed activities in nuclear power reactors against radiological sabotage,’’ published in the Federal Register on March 27, 2009 (74 FR 13926–13993), effective May 26, 2009, with a full implementation date of March 31, 2010, requires licensees to protect, with high assurance, against radiological sabotage by designing and implementing comprehensive site security programs. The amendments to 10 CFR 73.55 published on March 27, 2009, establish and update generically applicable security requirements similar to those previously imposed by Commission orders issued after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and implemented by licensees. In addition, the amendments to 10 CFR 73.55 include additional requirements to further enhance site security based upon insights gained from implementation of the post September 11, 2001, security orders. By letter dated February 26, 2010, the NRC granted PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52997 NPPD an exemption from the March 31, 2010, implementation date until August 31, 2010, for three of these additional requirements. NPPD now seeks an exemption from the August 31, 2010, implementation date until December 31, 2010, for the same three additional requirements. All other physical security requirements established by this recent rulemaking have already been implemented by the licensee. By application dated July 7, 2010, as supplemented by letter dated July 20, 2010, the licensee requested an exemption in accordance with 10 CFR 73.5, ‘‘Specific exemptions.’’ The licensee’s letter contains securityrelated information and, accordingly, those portions are not available to the public. The licensee has requested an exemption from the August 31, 2010, implementation date, stating that it must complete a number of modifications to the current site security configuration before all requirements can be met. Specifically, the request is for three requirements that would be met by December 31, 2010, instead of the August 31, 2010, deadline. Granting this exemption for the three items would allow the licensee to complete the modifications designed to update aging equipment and incorporate stateof-the-art technology to meet or exceed the regulatory requirements. 3.0 Discussion of Part 73 Schedule Exemptions From the March 31, 2010, Full Implementation Date Pursuant to 10 CFR 73.55(a)(1), ‘‘By March 31, 2010, each nuclear power reactor licensee, licensed under 10 CFR part 50, shall implement the requirements of this section through its Commission-approved Physical Security Plan, Training and Qualification Plan, Safeguards Contingency Plan, and Cyber Security Plan referred to collectively hereafter as ‘security plans.’ ’’ Pursuant to 10 CFR 73.5, the Commission may, upon application by any interested person or upon its own initiative, grant exemptions from the requirements of 10 CFR part 73 when the exemptions are authorized by law, and will not endanger life or property or the common defense and security, and are otherwise in the public interest. By letter dated February 26, 2010 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML100190100), the NRC approved an exemption that allowed NPPD an extension from March 31, 2010, until August 31, 2010, of the implementation date for three specific requirements of the new rule. NRC approval of this exemption, as noted above, would allow an extension E:\FR\FM\30AUN1.SGM 30AUN1

    The draft regulatory guide (DG) is temporarily identified by its 
task number, DG-8035, which should be mentioned in all related 
correspondence. DG-8035 is proposed Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 8.2,

of the NRC considers acceptable for the administrative practices 
associated with surveys and monitoring of ionizing radiation in 
licensed institutions, intended primarily for administrative and 
management personnel in organizations that are involved in, or are 
planning to initiate, activities involving the handling of radioactive 
materials or radiation.
    The administrative requirements for radiation monitoring are mainly 
specified in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 20,
