Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is reissuing 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. General Design Criterion 4, ‘‘Environmental and Dynamic Effects Design Bases,’’ of Appendix A, ‘‘General Design Criteria for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 50, ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,’’ requires, in part, that structures, systems, and components important to safety be appropriately protected against the effects of missiles that might result from equipment failures. Failures that could occur in the large steam turbines of the main turbine-generator sets have the potential for producing large highenergy missiles. This guide describes methods acceptable to the NRC staff for protecting structures, systems, and components (SSCs) against missiles resulting from turbine failure by the appropriate orientation and placement of the turbine-generator set, the management of the probability of turbine missile generation, and the use of missile barriers. The guide also identifies SSCs to be considered in designing protection from turbine missiles. The draft regulatory guide (DG) is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–1217, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. DG–1217 is proposed Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 1.115, VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:26 May 05, 2011 Jkt 223001 Revision 1, dated July 1977, ‘‘Protection Against Turbine Missiles.’’ DG–1217 was previously issued for comment November 2, 2009 (74 FR 56672). The draft guide is being reissued to allow further public review and comment following additional changes to the document. DG–1217 now identifies that applicants who choose to use a risk informed approach to demonstrate adequate protection against turbine missiles would be considered on a caseby-case basis. Additionally, DG–1217 uses the term ‘essential’, instead of the term ‘safety related’ to define affected SSCs. Previously received public comments and the staff’s consideration may be reviewed electronically under the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession Number ML101660585. II. Further Information The NRC staff is soliciting comments on DG–1217. Comments may be accompanied by relevant information or supporting data and should mention DG–1217 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).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is reissuing 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.
    General Design Criterion 4, ``Environmental and Dynamic Effects 
Design Bases,'' of Appendix A, ``General Design Criteria for Nuclear 
Power Plants,'' to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 
Part 50, ``Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization 
Facilities,'' requires, in part, that structures, systems, and 
components important to safety be appropriately protected against the 
effects of missiles that might result from equipment failures. Failures 
that could occur in the large steam turbines of the main turbine-
generator sets have the potential for producing large high-energy 
missiles.
    This guide describes methods acceptable to the NRC staff for 
protecting structures, systems, and components (SSCs) against missiles 
resulting from turbine failure by the appropriate orientation and 
placement of the turbine-generator set, the management of the 
probability of turbine missile generation, and the use of missile 
barriers. The guide also identifies SSCs to be considered in designing 
protection from turbine missiles.
    The draft regulatory guide (DG) is temporarily identified by its 
task number, DG-1217, which should be mentioned in all related 
correspondence. DG-1217 is proposed Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 
1.115, Revision 1, dated July 1977, ``Protection Against Turbine 
Missiles.'' DG-1217 was previously issued for comment November 2, 2009 
(74 FR 56672). The draft guide is being reissued to allow further 
public review and comment following additional changes to the document. 
DG-1217 now identifies that applicants who choose to use a risk 
informed approach to demonstrate adequate protection against turbine 
missiles would be considered on a case-by-case basis. Additionally, DG-
1217 uses the term `essential', instead of the term `safety related' to 
define affected SSCs.
    Previously received public comments and the staff's consideration 
may be reviewed electronically under the NRC's Agencywide Documents 
Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession Number ML101660585.

II. Further Information

    The NRC staff is soliciting comments on DG-1217. Comments may be 
accompanied by relevant information or supporting data and should 
mention DG-1217 in the subject line. Comments submitted in writing or

entirety through the NRC's Agencywide Documents Access and Management 
System (ADAMS).

Regulations.gov. Because your 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.
