Draft Program-Specific Guidance About Master Materials Licenses, 23018-23019 [2014-09487]

Download as PDF 23018 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 80 / Friday, April 25, 2014 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES standard. This included clarification of specific minimum requirements, disqualifying conditions, conditional restrictions, examination methods, and monitoring methods for each medical area. The 2013 issue also includes consideration of other industry medical standards, including those of the U.S. Department of Transportation and Federal Aviation Administration as well as medical criteria that reflect progressions in medical science including updated terminology, current medical practices, criteria for normality, and risk assessments. Regulatory Guide 1.134 is under revision to identify to licensees that ANSI/ANS 3.4–2013 is acceptable for their use. The guide helps to ensure that medical certifications (and related medical evidence) used to meet the operator licensing requirements of 10 CFR part 55 are sufficient with respect to (1) an applicant’s or operator licensee’s medical examination, as described in 10 CFR 55.21, ‘‘Medical Examination’’; (2) a facility licensee’s medical certification, as described in 10 CFR 55.23, ‘‘Certification’’; (3) an operator licensee’s incapacitation because of disability or illness, as described in 10 CFR 55.25, ‘‘Incapacitation Because of Disability or Illness’’; (4) a facility licensee’s medical documentation, as described in 10 CFR 55.27, ‘‘Documentation’’; (5) the NRC’s disposition of an initial application for an operator license, as described in 10 CFR 55.33(a)(1) and (b); and (6) renewal of operator licenses, as described in 10 CFR 55.57(a)(6) and (b)(1). III. Backfitting and Issue Finality This DG, if finalized, would provide updated guidance on the methods acceptable to the NRC staff for complying with the NRC’s regulations associated with approval or acceptance of the medical assessment of an applicant for or holder of an operator or senior operator license at a nuclear power plant. The draft guide would apply to current and future applicants for and holders of power reactor licenses under 10 CFR parts 50 and 52 and power reactor operating licenses under 10 CFR part 55. Issuance of this DG in final form would not constitute backfitting under 10 CFR part 50 and would not be otherwise inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR Part 52. As discussed in the ‘‘Implementation’’ section of this DG, the NRC has no current intention to impose the RG on current holders of 10 CFR part 50 operating licenses or 10 CFR part 52 combined licenses. Part 55 does not contain backfitting or issue finality regulations, and power reactor VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:57 Apr 24, 2014 Jkt 232001 operating licensees are not protected by the backfitting provisions in 10 CFR 50.109 or the 10 CFR part 52 issue finality provisions because neither 10 CFR 50.109 nor 10 CFR part 52 applies to 10 CFR part 55 power reactor operating licensees. This RG could be applied to applications for 10 CFR part 50 operating licenses, 10 CFR part 52 combined licenses, or 10 CFR part 55 operator licenses. Such action would not constitute backfitting as defined in 10 CFR 50.109 or be otherwise inconsistent with the applicable issue finality provision in 10 CFR part 52, inasmuch as such applicants are not within the scope of entities protected by 10 CFR 50.109 or the relevant issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52.
