SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. NSIR/DPR–ISG–01 The NSIR/DPR–ISG–01 will provide guidance for addressing new emergency planning (EP) requirements for nuclear power plants based on changes to EP regulations in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 50, ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,’’ specifically Section 50.47, ‘‘Emergency Plans,’’ and Appendix E, ‘‘Emergency Planning and Preparedness for Production and Utilization Facilities’’ that were published as a final rule in the Federal Register (FR) on November 23, 2011 (76 FR 72560). Additional guidance on one topic not directly related to the EP final rule (i.e., integrating offsite response methodologies with onsite EP programs) is also provided in this guidance. The NRC staff will incorporate the updated guidance PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 information in NSIR/DPR–ISG–01 into future revisions of NUREG–0654/ FEMA–REP–1 and other EP guidance documents. The statement of considerations for the EP final rule discussed that rule’s compliance with applicable backfitting provisions (76 FR 72560; November 23, 2011 at Page 72594). Portions of NSIR/ DPR–ISG–01 present the NRC staff’s first guidance addressing compliance with revised Part 50, Appendix E, Sections IV.A.7, IV.D.3, IV.E.8.a, IV.F.2.a, IV.F.2.b, IV.F.2.d, IV.F.2.f, and IV.F.2.g, and the newly-added Part 50, Appendix E, Sections IV.A.9, IV.C.2, IV.E.8.b, IV.E.8.c, IV.E.8.d, IV.F.2.c.(4), IV.F.2.c.(5), IV.F.2.i, IV.F.2.j, and IV.I. The first issuance of guidance on a changed rule provision (adopted in a rulemaking amending the rule provision) or newly-added provision of an existing rule does not constitute backfitting or raise issue finality concerns, inasmuch as the guidance must be consistent with the regulatory requirements in the newly-changed or newly-added rule provisions and the backfitting and issue finality considerations applicable to the newlychanged or newly-added rule provisions must logically apply to this guidance. Therefore, issuance of guidance addressing the newly-changed and newly-added provisions of the amended rule does not constitute issuance of ‘‘changed’’ or ‘‘new’’ guidance within the meaning of the definition of ‘‘backfitting’’ in 10 CFR 50.109(a)(1). Similarly, the issuance of the guidance addressing the newly-changed and newly-added provisions of the amended rule, by itself, does not constitute an action inconsistent with any of the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52. Accordingly, no further consideration of backfitting or issue finality is needed as part of the issuance of this guidance addressing compliance with the newlychanged provisions of part 50, Appendix E, Sections IV.A.7, IV.D.3, IV.E.8.a, IV.F.2.a, IV.F.2.b, IV.F.2.d, IV.F.2.f, and IV.F.2.g, and the newlyadded Part 50, Appendix E, Sections IV.A.9, IV.C.2, IV.E.8.b, IV.E.8.c, IV.E.8.d, IV.F.2.c.(4), IV.F.2.c.(5), IV.F.2.i, IV.F.2.j, and IV.I. II. NUREG/CR–7002 The NUREG/CR–7002 updates previous NRC guidance concerning the development of evacuation time E:\FR\FM\05DER1.SGM 05DER1 75772 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 233 / Monday, December 5, 2011 / Rules and Regulations pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with RULES estimate (ETE) studies. This document provides guidance for addressing new EP requirements for nuclear power plants based on changes to EP regulations in 10 CFR 50.47 and Appendix E to Part 50 in the November 23, 2011, final rule. The NRC is issuing guidance for the development of ETEs that recommends that licensees analyze several scenarios that consider all directions and distances within the emergency planning zone, time of day, day of week, adverse and normal weather conditions, and peak population special events. The ETE updates will support offsite protective action decision-making and evacuation planning efforts. The NUREG/CR–7002 presents the NRC staff’s first guidance addressing compliance with the newly-changed and newly-added part 50, Appendix E, Section IV, paragraphs 2 and 4–7. The first issuance of guidance on a changed rule provision (adopted in a rulemaking amending the rule provision) or newlyadded provision of an existing rule does not constitute backfitting or raise issue finality concerns, inasmuch as the guidance must be consistent with the regulatory requirements in the newlychanged or newly-added rule provisions and the backfitting and issue finality considerations applicable to the newlychanged or newly-added rule provisions must logically apply to this guidance (76 FR 72560; November 23, 2011 at Page 72594). Therefore, issuance of guidance addressing the newly-changed and newly-added provisions of the amended rule does not constitute issuance of ‘‘changed’’ or ‘‘new’’ guidance within the meaning of the definition of ‘‘backfitting’’ in 10 CFR 50.109(a)(1). Similarly, the issuance of the guidance addressing the newlychanged and newly-added provisions of the amended rule, by itself, does not constitute an action inconsistent with any of the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52. Accordingly, no further consideration of backfitting or issue finality is needed as part of the issuance of this guidance addressing compliance with the newly-changed provisions of Part 50, Appendix E, Section IV, paragraphs 2 and 4–7. III. Supplement 3 of NUREG–0654/ FEMA–REP–1 The NRC and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are updating protective action recommendation guidance by issuing Supplement 3 of NUREG–0654/FEMA– REP–1. The updated Supplement 3 reflects insights gained through a study of the efficacy of the protective action strategy documented in NUREG/CR– VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:16 Dec 02, 2011 Jkt 226001 6953, ‘‘Review of NUREG–0654, Supplement 3, ‘Criteria for Protective Action Recommendations for Severe Accidents’’’ (see http://www.nrc.gov/ reading-rm/doc-collections/nuregs/ contract/cr6953/). Supplement 3 of NUREG–0654/FEMA–REP–1 resulted from close coordination between FEMA and NRC staff as well as extensive input from stakeholders. The guidance incorporates the following elements: 1. Increased offsite response organization involvement in development of site specific protective action strategies; 2. Increased use of information from updated and current site specific evacuation time estimates; 3. Staged evacuation as the initial protective action at a General Emergency; 4. Increased use of shelter-in-place for certain scenarios; and 5. Guidance to improve communications with the public before and during an emergency. Licensees should meet the requirements of Appendix E, Section IV, paragraph 3 as soon as practical following the 180-day period in Appendix E, Section IV, paragraphs 4 and 6. Supplement 3 presents the NRC staff’s first guidance addressing compliance with the newly-added part 50, Appendix E, Section IV, paragraph 3, which was part of the November 23, 2011, final rule. The first issuance of guidance on a newly-added provision of an existing rule does not constitute backfitting or raise issue finality concerns, inasmuch as the guidance must be consistent with the regulatory requirements in the newly-added rule provision and the backfitting and issue finality considerations applicable to the newly-added rule provision must logically apply to this guidance (76 FR 72560; November 23, 2011 at page 72594). Therefore, issuance of guidance addressing the newly-added provision of the amended rule does not constitute issuance of ‘‘changed’’ or ‘‘new’’ guidance within the meaning of the definition of ‘‘backfitting’’ in 10 CFR 50.109(a)(1). Similarly, the issuance of the guidance addressing the newlyadded provision of the amended rule, by itself, does not constitute an action inconsistent with any of the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR Part 52. Accordingly, no further consideration of backfitting or issue finality is needed as part of the issuance of this guidance addressing compliance with the newlyadded provision of Part 50, Appendix E, Section IV, paragraph 3.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. NSIR/DPR-ISG-01

    The NSIR/DPR-ISG-01 will provide guidance for addressing new 
emergency planning (EP) requirements for nuclear power plants based on 
changes to EP regulations in Title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR) Part 50, ``Domestic Licensing of Production and 
Utilization Facilities,'' specifically Section 50.47, ``Emergency 
Plans,'' and Appendix E, ``Emergency Planning and Preparedness for 
Production and Utilization Facilities'' that were published as a final 
rule in the Federal Register (FR) on November 23, 2011 (76 FR 72560). 
Additional guidance on one topic not directly related to the EP final 
rule (i.e., integrating offsite response methodologies with onsite EP 
programs) is also provided in this guidance. The NRC staff will 
incorporate the updated guidance information in NSIR/DPR-ISG-01 into 
future revisions of NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1 and other EP guidance 
documents.
    The statement of considerations for the EP final rule discussed 
that rule's compliance with applicable backfitting provisions (76 FR 
72560; November 23, 2011 at Page 72594). Portions of NSIR/DPR-ISG-01 
present the NRC staff's first guidance addressing compliance with 
revised Part 50, Appendix E, Sections IV.A.7, IV.D.3, IV.E.8.a, 
IV.F.2.a, IV.F.2.b, IV.F.2.d, IV.F.2.f, and IV.F.2.g, and the newly-
added Part 50, Appendix E, Sections IV.A.9, IV.C.2, IV.E.8.b, IV.E.8.c, 
IV.E.8.d, IV.F.2.c.(4), IV.F.2.c.(5), IV.F.2.i, IV.F.2.j, and IV.I. The 
first issuance of guidance on a changed rule provision (adopted in a 
rulemaking amending the rule provision) or newly-added provision of an 
existing rule does not constitute backfitting or raise issue finality 
concerns, inasmuch as the guidance must be consistent with the 
regulatory requirements in the newly-changed or newly-added rule 
provisions and the backfitting and issue finality considerations 
applicable to the newly-changed or newly-added rule provisions must 
logically apply to this guidance. Therefore, issuance of guidance 
addressing the newly-changed and newly-added provisions of the amended 
rule does not constitute issuance of ``changed'' or ``new'' guidance 
within the meaning of the definition of ``backfitting'' in 10 CFR 
50.109(a)(1). Similarly, the issuance of the guidance addressing the 
newly-changed and newly-added provisions of the amended rule, by 
itself, does not constitute an action inconsistent with any of the 
issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52. Accordingly, no further 
consideration of backfitting or issue finality is needed as part of the 
issuance of this guidance addressing compliance with the newly-changed 
provisions of part 50, Appendix E, Sections IV.A.7, IV.D.3, IV.E.8.a, 
IV.F.2.a, IV.F.2.b, IV.F.2.d, IV.F.2.f, and IV.F.2.g, and the newly-
added Part 50, Appendix E, Sections IV.A.9, IV.C.2, IV.E.8.b, IV.E.8.c, 
IV.E.8.d, IV.F.2.c.(4), IV.F.2.c.(5), IV.F.2.i, IV.F.2.j, and IV.I.

II. NUREG/CR-7002

    The NUREG/CR-7002 updates previous NRC guidance concerning the 
development of evacuation time

estimate (ETE) studies. This document provides guidance for addressing 
new EP requirements for nuclear power plants based on changes to EP 
regulations in 10 CFR 50.47 and Appendix E to Part 50 in the November 
23, 2011, final rule. The NRC is issuing guidance for the development 
of ETEs that recommends that licensees analyze several scenarios that 
consider all directions and distances within the emergency planning 
zone, time of day, day of week, adverse and normal weather conditions, 
and peak population special events. The ETE updates will support 
offsite protective action decision-making and evacuation planning 
efforts.
    The NUREG/CR-7002 presents the NRC staff's first guidance 
addressing compliance with the newly-changed and newly-added part 50, 
Appendix E, Section IV, paragraphs 2 and 4-7. The first issuance of 
guidance on a changed rule provision (adopted in a rulemaking amending 
the rule provision) or newly-added provision of an existing rule does 
not constitute backfitting or raise issue finality concerns, inasmuch 
as the guidance must be consistent with the regulatory requirements in 
the newly-changed or newly-added rule provisions and the backfitting 
and issue finality considerations applicable to the newly-changed or 
newly-added rule provisions must logically apply to this guidance (76 
FR 72560; November 23, 2011 at Page 72594). Therefore, issuance of 
guidance addressing the newly-changed and newly-added provisions of the 
amended rule does not constitute issuance of ``changed'' or ``new'' 
guidance within the meaning of the definition of ``backfitting'' in 10 
CFR 50.109(a)(1). Similarly, the issuance of the guidance addressing 
the newly-changed and newly-added provisions of the amended rule, by 
itself, does not constitute an action inconsistent with any of the 
issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52. Accordingly, no further 
consideration of backfitting or issue finality is needed as part of the 
issuance of this guidance addressing compliance with the newly-changed 
provisions of Part 50, Appendix E, Section IV, paragraphs 2 and 4-7.

III. Supplement 3 of NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1

    The NRC and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are 
updating protective action recommendation guidance by issuing 
Supplement 3 of NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1. The updated Supplement 3 
reflects insights gained through a study of the efficacy of the 
protective action strategy documented in NUREG/CR-6953, ``Review of 
NUREG-0654, Supplement 3, `Criteria for Protective Action 
Recommendations for Severe Accidents''' (see http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/nuregs/contract/cr6953/). Supplement 3 of 
NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1 resulted from close coordination between FEMA and 
NRC staff as well as extensive input from stakeholders. The guidance 
incorporates the following elements:
    1. Increased offsite response organization involvement in 
development of site specific protective action strategies;
    2. Increased use of information from updated and current site 
specific evacuation time estimates;
    3. Staged evacuation as the initial protective action at a General 
Emergency;
    4. Increased use of shelter-in-place for certain scenarios; and
    5. Guidance to improve communications with the public before and 
during an emergency.
    Licensees should meet the requirements of Appendix E, Section IV, 
paragraph 3 as soon as practical following the 180-day period in 
Appendix E, Section IV, paragraphs 4 and 6.
    Supplement 3 presents the NRC staff's first guidance addressing 
compliance with the newly-added part 50, Appendix E, Section IV, 
paragraph 3, which was part of the November 23, 2011, final rule. The 
first issuance of guidance on a newly-added provision of an existing 
rule does not constitute backfitting or raise issue finality concerns, 
inasmuch as the guidance must be consistent with the regulatory 
requirements in the newly-added rule provision and the backfitting and 
issue finality considerations applicable to the newly-added rule 
provision must logically apply to this guidance (76 FR 72560; November 
23, 2011 at page 72594). Therefore, issuance of guidance addressing the 
newly-added provision of the amended rule does not constitute issuance 
of ``changed'' or ``new'' guidance within the meaning of the definition 
of ``backfitting'' in 10 CFR 50.109(a)(1). Similarly, the issuance of 
the guidance addressing the newly-added provision of the amended rule, 
by itself, does not constitute an action inconsistent with any of the 
issue finality provisions in 10 CFR Part 52. Accordingly, no further 
consideration of backfitting or issue finality is needed as part of the 
issuance of this guidance addressing compliance with the newly-added 
provision of Part 50, Appendix E, Section IV, paragraph 3.
