AGENCY: 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 a sufficient amount of DU that, under the Atomic Energy Act and NRC regulations, it is required to have a radioactive materials license. The Army submitted a license application in November 2008 for the DU at the Hawaiian sites. In the future, the Army will request amendments the license to address Davy Crockett DU at the other sites.

Atmospheric Storage Tanks, and Corrosion Under Insulation

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Interim staff guidance; issuance.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing the 
final License Renewal Interim Staff Guidance (LR-ISG), LR-ISG-2012-02, 
``Aging Management of Internal Surfaces, Fire Water Systems, 
Atmospheric Storage Tanks, and Corrosion Under Insulation.'' This LR-
ISG provides changes to NRC staff-recommended aging management programs 
(AMPs), aging management review (AMR) items, and definitions in NUREG-
1801, Revision 2, ``Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL) Report,'' and 
the NRC staff's AMP Final Safety Analysis Report Supplement program 
descriptions, acceptance criteria for AMR items requiring further 
review, review procedure for AMR items requiring further review, and 
AMR items contained in NUREG-1800, Revision 2, ``Standard Review Plan 
for Review of License Renewal Applications for Nuclear Power Plants'' 
(SRP-LR). These changes address new recommendations related to internal 
surface aging effects, fire water systems, atmospheric storage tanks, 
and corrosion under insulation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    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).
    The NRC staff has developed LR-ISG-2012-02 to address: (a) 
Recurring internal corrosion, (b) a representative minimum sample size 
for periodic inspections in the GALL Report AMP XI.M38, ``Inspection of 
Internal Surfaces in Miscellaneous Piping and Ducting Components,'' (c) 
flow blockage of water-based fire protection system piping, (d) 
revisions to the scope and inspection recommendations of the GALL 
Report AMP XI.M29, ``Aboveground Metallic Tanks,'' (e) corrosion under 
insulation, (f) external volumetric examination of internal piping 
surfaces of underground piping, (g) specific guidance for use of the 
pressurization option for inspecting elastomers in the GALL Report AMP 
XI.M38, and (h) key miscellaneous changes to the GALL Report and SRP-
LR.
    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.

Backfitting and Issue Finality

    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.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 14th day of November, 2013.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Deputy Director, Division of License Renewal, Office of Nuclear Reactor 
Regulation.
