II. Background The NRC is revising RIS 2005–29 (ML15014A469) to inform addressees of concerns identified during recent license amendment reviews. Specifically, licensing bases, as documented in final safety analysis reports (FSARs), updated FSARs (UFSARs), or design control documents (DCDs), failed to demonstrate that anticipated operational occurrences (AOOs, Condition II events) would not progress to more serious events (Condition III or IV events). The NRC determined that, as a result of these problems, these licensees were not in compliance with Part 50, Appendix A of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘General Design Criteria for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ specifically, general design criteria (GDC) 15, ‘‘Reactor Coolant System Design,’’ GDC 21, ‘‘Protection System Reliability and Testability,’’ and GDC 29, ‘‘Protection Against Anticipated Operational Occurrences,’’ as well as 10 CFR 50.34(b), ‘‘Final Safety Analysis Report.’’ Revision 1 to RIS 2005–29 supersedes in its entirety RIS 2005–29. The revised RIS would be designated as RIS 2005–29, Revision 1. The original version of RIS 2005–29 was issued on December 14, 2005, and is available in ADAMS for viewing (ML051890212).

II. Background

    The NRC is revising RIS 2005-29 (ML15014A469) to inform addressees 
of concerns identified during recent license amendment reviews. 
Specifically, licensing bases, as documented in final safety analysis 
reports (FSARs), updated FSARs (UFSARs), or design control documents 
(DCDs), failed to demonstrate that anticipated operational occurrences 
(AOOs, Condition II events) would not progress to more serious events 
(Condition III or IV events). The NRC determined that, as a result of 
these problems, these licensees were not in compliance with Part 50, 
Appendix A of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), 
``General Design Criteria for Nuclear Power Plants,'' specifically, 
general design criteria (GDC) 15, ``Reactor Coolant System Design,'' 
GDC 21, ``Protection System Reliability and Testability,'' and GDC 29, 
``Protection Against Anticipated Operational Occurrences,'' as well as 
10 CFR 50.34(b), ``Final Safety Analysis Report.'' Revision 1 to RIS 
2005-29 supersedes in its entirety RIS 2005-29. The revised RIS would 
be designated as RIS 2005-29, Revision 1. The original version of RIS 
2005-29 was issued on December 14, 2005, and is available in ADAMS for 
viewing (ML051890212).
    The NRC issues RISs to communicate with stakeholders on a broad 
range of matters. This may include providing

[[Page 42560]]

guidance to applicants and licensees on the scope and detail of 
information that should be provided in licensing applications to 
facilitate NRC review.

Proposed Action

    The NRC requests public comments on the NRC-proposed revisions to 
the current RIS. The NRC staff will make a final determination 
regarding issuance of a revised RIS after it considers any public 
comments received in response to this request.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 13th day of July 2015.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
