Regulatory Guide 5.80, ‘‘PressureSensitive and Tamper-Indicating Device Seals for Material Control and Accounting of Special Nuclear Material,’’ was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–5029.

This guide, among other things, distinguishes between genuine and nongenuine manufactured seals and stresses serial number identification to aid in the control of material or to alert shipping and receiving personnel to containers that were opened in transit. This guide also incorporates suggestions for ensuring that TIDs are properly applied. In June 2009, DG–5029 was published with a public comment period of 60 days from the issuance of the guide. The public comment period closed on October 13, 2009.

Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 3.12, ‘‘General Design Guide for Ventilation Systems of Plutonium Processing and Fuel Fabrication Plant,’’ was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–3034. This guide describes a method that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for use in complying with Title 10, § 70.23(a)(3), of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 70.23(a)(3)), and 10 CFR 70.23(a)(4) on the design of ventilation systems for plutonium processing and fuel fabrication plants. At plutonium processing and fuel fabrication plants, a principal risk to health and safety is the release and dispersal of radioactive materials. The prevention of such release and dispersal is an important function of the ventilation systems. To meet these objectives, this guide provides recommendations for achieving defense in depth and for minimizing the release of radioactive materials to the environment. Each applicant for a license to possess and use special nuclear material in a plutonium processing and fuel fabrication plant, as defined in 10 CFR E:\FR\FM\17DEN1.SGM 17DEN1

Material Control and Accounting of Special Nuclear Material.''

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) is 
issuing a new guide in the agency's ``Regulatory Guide'' series. This 
series was developed to describe and make available to the public 
information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for 
implementing specific 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 5.80, ``Pressure-Sensitive and Tamper-Indicating 
Device Seals for Material Control and Accounting of Special Nuclear 
Material,'' was issued with a temporary identification as Draft 
Regulatory Guide, DG-5029. This regulatory guide replaces the existing 
RG 5.10, ``Selection and Use of Pressure-Sensitive Seals on Containers 
for Onsite Storage of Special Nuclear Material,'' issued July 1973, and 
the existing RG 5.15, ``Tamper-Indicating Seals for the Protection and 
Control of Special Nuclear Material,'' issued March 1997, with a new 
regulatory guide titled, ``Pressure-Sensitive and Tamper-Indicating 
Device Seals for MC&A Use.'' As a replacement, this guide describes a 
number of improved tamper-indicating devices (TIDs) and pressure-
sensitive (PS) seals developed in recent years, primarily in response 
to commercial interests outside the nuclear industry. This guide, among 
other things, distinguishes between genuine and nongenuine manufactured 
seals and stresses serial number identification to aid in the control 
of material or to alert shipping and receiving personnel to containers 
that were opened in transit. This guide also incorporates suggestions 
for ensuring that TIDs are properly applied.

II. Further Information

    In June 2009, DG-5029 was published with a public comment period of 
60 days from the issuance of the guide. The public comment period 
closed on October 13, 2009. The staff's responses to the public 
comments received can be located in the NRC's Agencywide Documents 
Access and Management System (ADAMS) under Accession Number 
ML101810238. The regulatory analysis may be found in ADAMS under 
Accession Number ML101800517. Electronic copies of RG 5.80 are 
available through the NRC's public Web site under ``Regulatory Guides'' 
at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/.
    In addition, regulatory guides are available for inspection at the 
NRC's Public Document Room (PDR) located at 11555 Rockville Pike, 
Rockville, Maryland. The PDR's mailing address is USNRC PDR, 
Washington, DC 20555-0001. The PDR can also be reached by telephone at 
301-415-4737 or 1-800-397-4205, by fax at 301-415-3548, and by e-mail 
to pdr.resource@nrc.gov.

not required to reproduce them.
