On April 12, 2013, (78 FR 21980) the NRC requested public comments on draft LR–ISG–2012–02 (ADAMS Accession No. ML12291A920). On May 23, 2013, the NRC conducted a public meeting to discuss draft LR–ISG–2012– 02. A meeting summary was published on June 20, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13149A401). The NRC received comments from the Nuclear Energy Institute by letter dated June 14, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13168A397). No other comments were submitted. The NRC considered these comments in developing the final LR–ISG. Detailed responses to the comments can be found in Appendix I of the final LR–ISG. The final LR–ISG–2012–02 is approved for NRC staff and stakeholder use and will be incorporated into NRC’s next formal license renewal guidance document revision.

Issuance of this final LR–ISG 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.’’ As discussed in the ‘‘Backfitting Discussion’’ section of the final LR–ISG–2012–02, the LR– ISG is directed to holders of operating licenses or combined licenses who are currently in the license renewal process. The LR–ISG is not directed to holders of operating licenses or combined licenses until they apply for license renewal. The LR–ISG is also not directed to licensees who already hold renewed operating or combined licenses. The NRC issues LR–ISGs to communicate insights and lessons learned and to address emergent issues not covered in license renewal guidance documents, such as the GALL Report and SRP–LR. In this way, the NRC staff and stakeholders may use the guidance in an LR–ISG document before it is incorporated into a formal license renewal guidance document revision. The NRC staff issues LR–ISGs in accordance with the LR–ISG Process, Revision 2 (ADAMS Accession No. ML100920158), for which a notice of availability was published in the Federal Register on June 22, 2010 (75 FR 35510).

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued a 
license to the U.S. Army, Installation Management Command, for 
possession of depleted uranium (DU) from the Davy Crockett weapon 
spotting round at the U.S. Army's Schofield Barracks and Pohakuloa 
Training Area installations in Hawaii. The Army informed the NRC in 
November 2006 that it had discovered DU fragments at the Schofield 
Barracks. Following that discovery, the Army determined that the Davy 
Crockett system had been used at other Army installations. The Army has
