Background In November 1980, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) issued FEMA–REP–10, Guide for the Evaluation of Alert and Notification Systems for Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs). Since that time, there have been changes to FEMA and Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) regulations, guidance, policies and advances in technology. Many of the Alert and Notification Systems (ANS) from the 1980s are undergoing replacement and upgrade cycles. The new guidance: • Allows FEMA in its evaluations of alert and notification systems to take into account technology that was not available when FEMA REP–10 was first developed, such as smartphones and social media. • Removes technical information from FEMA–REP–10. • Introduces the Evaluation Report which replaces the previously used Design Report. • Presents a new evaluation tenet: FEMA, the State, local entities and Tribes will work collaboratively to develop the Evaluation Report that addresses both technical aspects (previously covered in the Design Report) and planning aspects (ANS/ Communication Plans) demonstrating the achievement of minimally acceptable design objectives. • Refocuses REP–10 into an internal review guide for FEMA Evaluators aligning with other REP evaluation guides. This proposed policy is to be a companion document to NUREG–0654/ FEMA–REP–1, Rev. 1 ‘‘Criteria for Preparation and Evaluation of Emergency Response Plans and Preparedness in Support of Nuclear Power Plants’’ and the FEMA Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program Manual. Both documents contribute to the achievement of reasonable assurance, which is a determination that State, local, Tribal, and utility offsite plans and preparedness are adequate to protect public health and safety in the emergency planning areas surrounding commercial nuclear power plants.

II. Background

    In November 1980, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) 
issued FEMA-REP-10, Guide for the Evaluation of Alert and Notification 
Systems for Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs). Since that time, there have 
been changes to FEMA and Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) 
regulations, guidance, policies and advances in technology. Many of the 
Alert and Notification Systems (ANS) from the 1980s are undergoing 
replacement and upgrade cycles.
    The new guidance:
     Allows FEMA in its evaluations of alert and notification 
systems to take into account technology that was not available when 
FEMA REP-10 was first developed, such as smartphones and social media.
     Removes technical information from FEMA-REP-10.
     Introduces the Evaluation Report which replaces the 
previously used Design Report.
     Presents a new evaluation tenet: FEMA, the State, local 
entities and Tribes will work collaboratively to develop the Evaluation 
Report that addresses both technical aspects (previously covered in the 
Design Report) and planning aspects (ANS/Communication Plans) 
demonstrating the achievement of minimally acceptable design 
objectives.
     Refocuses REP-10 into an internal review guide for FEMA 
Evaluators aligning with other REP evaluation guides.
    This proposed policy is to be a companion document to NUREG-0654/
FEMA-REP-1, Rev. 1 ``Criteria for Preparation and Evaluation of 
Emergency Response Plans and Preparedness in Support of Nuclear Power 
Plants'' and the FEMA Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program 
Manual. Both documents contribute to the achievement of reasonable 
assurance, which is a determination that State, local, Tribal, and 
utility offsite plans and preparedness are adequate to protect public 
health and safety in the emergency planning areas surrounding 
commercial nuclear power plants.
    The proposed policy does not have the force or effect of law.
    FEMA seeks comment on the proposed policy, which is available 
online at http://www.regulations.gov in docket ID FEMA-2013-0040. Based 
on the comments received, FEMA may make appropriate revisions to the 
proposed policy. Although FEMA will consider any comments received in
