The NRC staff issues DC/COL–ISGs to facilitate timely implementation of current staff guidance and to facilitate activities associated with NRC review of applications for DCs and COLs. The NRC staff intends to incorporate the final approved DC/COL–ISG–018 into the next revisions of NUREG–0800, SRP Section 17.4 and Regulatory Guide (RG) 1.206, ‘‘Combined License Applications for Nuclear Power Plants (LWR Edition),’’ June 2007. Disposition: On October 30, 2009, the NRC staff issued proposed DC/COL– ISG–018 on ‘‘Reliability Assurance Program,’’ ADAMS Accession No. ML092290791. The staff received only editorial comments which were incorporated. However, the ISG was further discussed at public meetings held at the NRC during 2010. These public meetings primarily focused on the Tier 1 inspections, tests, analyses, and acceptance criteria for the COL RAP during the design stage, which is specified in the ISG. This final issuance incorporates clarifications that resulted from these public meetings. A document comparing the version of the ISG that was issued for public comments and the final version of the ISG can be found under ADAMS Accession No. ML103010361. The NRC maintains ADAMS, which provides text and image files of NRC’s public documents.
