SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a revision 
to an existing 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 requests for 
licensing actions. In March 2010, Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 4.16, 
``Monitoring and Reporting Radioactive Materials in Liquid and Gaseous 
Effluents from Nuclear Fuel Cycle Facilities,'' was published as Draft 
Regulatory Guide, DG-4017, with a public comment period of 60 days. 
This guide describes a method that the staff of the NRC considers 
acceptable for the development and implementation of effluent 
monitoring programs described in license applications and for 
monitoring and reporting effluent data by licensees. The guidance is 
applicable to nuclear fuel cycle facilities, with the exception of 
uranium milling facilities and nuclear power reactors. The NRC has 
developed other regulatory guides applicable to those facilities.
    Revision of this regulatory guide is necessary to update references 
and practices and to communicate its applicability to the enrichment 
plants which have come under the regulatory authority of the NRC since 
the issuance of Revision 1 of the guide.
