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. This guide describes a method that the NRC staff considers acceptable to implement the requirements in Title 10, Section 50.54(q), of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) part 50, ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities.’’ Requirements in 10 CFR 50.54(q)), ‘‘Conditions of Licenses,’’ relate to emergency preparedness and specifically to making changes to emergency response plans.

The first issuance of guidance on a new rule does not constitute backfitting, inasmuch as the guidance must be consistent with the regulatory requirements in the new rule and the backfitting considerations applicable to the new rule must, as a matter of logic, also be applicable to this newly-issued guidance. Therefore, issuance of this new regulatory guide does not constitute issuance of ‘‘new’’ guidance within the meaning of the definition of ‘‘backfitting’’ in 10 CFR 50.109(a)(1), nor does the issuance of this new regulatory guide, by itself, constitute an action inconsistent with any of the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The NRC 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.
    This guide describes a method that the NRC staff considers 
acceptable to implement the requirements in Title 10, Section 50.54(q), 
of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) part 50, ``Domestic 
Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities.'' Requirements in 
10 CFR 50.54(q)), ``Conditions of Licenses,'' relate to emergency 
preparedness and specifically to making changes to emergency response 
plans.

II. Further Information

    Draft Guide (DG)-1237 was published in the Federal Register on May 
18, 2009 (74 FR 23220), for a 60 day public comment period. The public 
comment period closed on August 3, 2009. Public comments on DG-1237 and 
the staff responses to the public comments are available in ADAMS under 
Accession Number ML102520241.

III. Backfitting and Issue Finality

    This regulatory guide provides the NRC's first guidance on 
compliance with the revised provisions of 10 CFR 50.54(q). This 
regulation was recently published in the Federal Register (76 FR 72560; 
November 23, 2011) and will become effective on December 23, 2011. 
Licensees must implement the amended 10 CFR 50.54(q) by January 23, 
2012. The statement of considerations for the final rule that amended 
10 CFR 50.54(q) discussed compliance with applicable backfitting 
provisions (76 FR 72560; November 23, 2011 at Page 72594). The first 
issuance of guidance on a new rule does not constitute backfitting, 
inasmuch as the guidance must be consistent with the regulatory 
requirements in the new rule and the backfitting considerations 
applicable to the new rule must, as a matter of logic, also be 
applicable to this newly-issued guidance. Therefore, issuance of this 
new regulatory guide does not constitute issuance of ``new'' guidance 
within the meaning of the definition of ``backfitting'' in 10 CFR 
50.109(a)(1), nor does the issuance of this new regulatory guide, by 
itself, constitute an action inconsistent with any of the issue 
finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 21st day of November 2011.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
