Introduction The NRC is withdrawing Regulatory Guide (RG) 3.28, ‘‘Welder Qualification for Welding in Areas of Limited Accessibility in Fuel Reprocessing Plants and in Plutonium Processing and Fuel Fabrication Plants,’’ which was published in May 1975 (ADAMS Accession No. ML003739371). RG 3.28 provides guidance on methods acceptable to the NRC for meeting quality assurance (QA) requirements for welding nuclear components for fuel reprocessing plants and for plutonium processing and fuel fabrication plants in areas of limited accessibility. RG 3.28 is being withdrawn because the guidance it provides is duplicated in RG 1.71, Rev. 1, ‘‘Welder Qualification for Areas of Limited Accessibility,’’ which was VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:54 Apr 08, 2014 Jkt 232001 updated in March 2007 (ADAMS Accession No. ML070320476). II. Further Information The withdrawal of RG 3.28 does not alter any prior or existing licensing commitments based on its use. Regulatory guides may be withdrawn when their guidance no longer provides useful information, or is superseded by technological innovations, Congressional actions, or other events. Regulatory guides are revised for a variety of reasons and the withdrawal of a regulatory guide should be thought of as the final revision of the guide. Although a regulatory guide is withdrawn, current licensees may continue to use it, and withdrawal does not affect any existing licenses or agreements. Withdrawal of a guide means that the guide should not be used for future NRC licensing activities. Changes to existing licenses can be accomplished using other regulatory products.

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Regulatory guide; withdrawal.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing 
Regulatory Guide (RG) 3.29, ``Preheat and Interpass Temperature Control 
for the Welding of Low-Alloy Steel for Use in Fuel Reprocessing Plants 
and in Plutonium Processing and Fuel Fabrication Plants.'' This guide 
is being withdrawn because the guidance can be found in RG 1.50, Rev. 
1, ``Control of Preheat Temperature for Welding of Low-Alloy Steel.''

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    The NRC is withdrawing Regulatory Guide (RG) 3.29, ``Preheat and 
Interpass Temperature Control for the Welding of Low-Alloy Steel for 
Use in Fuel Reprocessing Plants and in Plutonium Processing and Fuel 
Fabrication Plants,'' which was published in May 1975 (ADAMS Accession 
No. ML003739381). RG 3.29 provides guidance on methods acceptable to 
the NRC for meeting quality assurance (QA) requirements with regard to 
controlling the welding of low-alloy steel components for fuel 
reprocessing plants and for plutonium processing and fuel fabrication 
facilities.

[[Page 19664]]

RG 3.29 is being withdrawn because the guidance it provides is 
duplicated in RG 1.50, Rev. 1, ``Control of Preheat Temperature for 
Welding of Low-Alloy Steel,'' which was updated in March 2011 (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML101870612), and is up-to-date. In addition to endorsing 
portions of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Boiler and 
Pressure Vessel Code (Sections III, VIII, and IX), RG 3.29 provides 
additional guidance.

II. Further Information

    The withdrawal of RG 3.29 does not alter any prior or existing 
licensing commitments based on its use. Regulatory guides may be 
withdrawn when their guidance no longer provides useful information, or 
is superseded by technological innovations, Congressional actions, or 
other events.
    Regulatory guides are revised for a variety of reasons and the 
withdrawal of a regulatory guide should be thought of as the final 
revision of the guide. Although a regulatory guide is withdrawn, 
current licensees may continue to use it, and withdrawal does not 
affect any existing licenses or agreements. Withdrawal of a guide means 
that the guide should not be used for future NRC licensing activities. 
Changes to existing licenses can be accomplished using other regulatory 
products.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 28th day of March , 2014.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
