meeting, the NRC seeks to discuss with interested stakeholders options 
for the NRC to endorse use of these standards.
    The NRC has been discussing multi-unit risk for many years with 
limited discussion on multi-module risk. The NRC staff plans to discuss 
their expectations for Multi-Module risk in a public meeting and in a
