XX. The purpose of draft RIS 2014-XX, ``Applicability of ASME Code Case 
N-770-1 As Conditioned In 10 CFR [Title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations] 50.55a, `Codes and Standards,' To Branch Connection Butt 
Welds,'' is to inform addressees about reactor coolant system Alloy 82/
182 branch connection dissimilar metal nozzle welds that may be of a 
butt weld configuration and therefore require inspection under 10 CFR 
50.55a(g)(6)(ii)(F). The RIS, if issued in final form, would be used by 
all holders of an operating license or construction permit for a 
pressurized water nuclear power reactor under 10 CFR part 50, 
``Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,'' except 
those who have permanently ceased operations and have certified that 
fuel has been permanently removed from the reactor vessel. The draft 
RIS explains that these entities should review this information for 
applicability to their Alloy 600 management plan to ensure all 
applicable butt welds are being inspected.
    The public comment period was originally scheduled to close on 
December 8, 2014. The NRC has decided to extend the public comment 
period to allow more time for members of the public to submit their 
comments. The deadline for submitting comments is extended to December
