Download as PDF 63518 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 206 / Thursday, October 24, 2013 / Notices guidance for process control through testing weld test pads. These changes considerably reduced the testing effort needed to control delta ferrite in welds. This revision (Revision 4) references the latest consensus standards. It supplements the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Code requirements to ensure control of delta ferrite in welds in austenitic stainless steel core support structures, reactor internals, and Class 1, 2, and 3 components. Also, the appendix of the previous version has been removed and incorporated into the relevant specifications that are referenced in the guide. II. Additional Information The NRC published DG–1279 in the Federal Register on October 3, 2012 (77 FR 60479), for a 60-day public comment period. The public comment period closed on December 2, 2012. Public comments on DG–1279 and the NRC staff’s responses to the public comments are available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML13211A483. III. Congressional Review Act This regulatory guide is a rule as defined in the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801–808). However, the Office of Management and Budget has not found it to be a major rule as defined in the Congressional Review Act. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES IV. Backfitting and Issue Finality Issuance of this final regulatory guide does not constitute backfitting as defined in 10 CFR 50.109 (the Backfit Rule) and is not otherwise inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52, ‘‘Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants.’’ Revision 4 of this regulatory guide provides guidance on methods for meeting NRC’s regulatory requirements concerning establishing and implementing a procedure for the control of ferrite content in stainless steel weld metal. Licensees may voluntarily use the guidance in this document to demonstrate compliance with the underlying NRC regulations. The NRC staff does not expect any existing licensee to use or commit to using the guidance in this regulatory guide, unless the licensee seeks a voluntary change to its licensing basis. Further information on the staff’s use of Revision 4 of this regulatory guide is contained in the regulatory guide under section D. Implementation.
