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), entitled, ‘‘Design-Basis Hurricane and VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:33 Aug 30, 2010 Jkt 220001 Hurricane Missiles for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–1247, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. DG–1247 is a proposed new regulatory guide. This regulatory guide provides licensees and applicants with new guidance that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for use in selecting the design-basis hurricane and designbasis hurricane-generated missiles that a nuclear power plant should be designed to withstand to prevent undue risk to the health and safety of the public. This guidance applies to the contiguous United States but does not address the determination of the design-basis hurricane and hurricane missiles for sites located along the Pacific coast or in Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico; the NRC will evaluate such determinations on a case-by-case basis. This guide also does not identify the specific structures, systems, and components that should be designed to withstand the effects of the design-basis hurricane or should be protected from hurricane-generated missiles and remain functional. Nor does this guide address other externally generated hazards, such as aviation crashes, nearby accidental explosions resulting in blast overpressure levels and explosion-borne debris and missiles, and turbine missiles. II. Further Information The NRC staff is soliciting comments on DG–1247. Comments may be accompanied by relevant information or supporting data and should mention DG–1247 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 21, 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. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments by any one of the following methods. Please include Docket ID NRC–2010– 0288 in the subject line of your comments. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be posted on the NRC Web site and on the Federal rulemaking website Regulations.gov. Because your PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 comments will not be edited to remove any identifying or contact information, the NRC cautions you against including any information in your submission that you do not want to be publicly disclosed. The NRC requests that any party soliciting or aggregating comments received from other persons for submission to the NRC inform those persons that the NRC will not edit their comments to remove any identifying or contact information, and therefore, they should not include any information in their comments that they do not want publicly disclosed.

Power Plants.''

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), entitled, ``Design-Basis Hurricane 
and Hurricane Missiles for Nuclear Power Plants,'' is temporarily 
identified by its task number, DG-1247, which should be mentioned in 
all related correspondence. DG-1247 is a proposed new regulatory guide.
    This regulatory guide provides licensees and applicants with new 
guidance that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for use in 
selecting the design-basis hurricane and design-basis hurricane-
generated missiles that a nuclear power plant should be designed to 
withstand to prevent undue risk to the health and safety of the public. 
This guidance applies to the contiguous United States but does not 
address the determination of the design-basis hurricane and hurricane 
missiles for sites located along the Pacific coast or in Alaska, 
Hawaii, or Puerto Rico; the NRC will evaluate such determinations on a 
case-by-case basis. This guide also does not identify the specific 
structures, systems, and components that should be designed to 
withstand the effects of the design-basis hurricane or should be 
protected from hurricane-generated missiles and remain functional. Nor 
does this guide address other externally generated hazards, such as 
aviation crashes, nearby accidental explosions resulting in blast 
overpressure levels and explosion-borne debris and missiles, and 
turbine missiles.
