I. Discussion

    The draft NUREG provides policy and guidance for the development, 
administration, and grading of examinations used for licensing 
operators at nuclear power plants under the Commission's regulations in 
part 55 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), 
``Operator Licenses.'' This draft NUREG also provides guidance for 
maintaining operators' licenses, and for the NRC to conduct 
requalification examinations when necessary.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 29th day of January, 2016.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Clay Johnson,
Acting Deputy Director, Division of Inspection and Regional Support, 
Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.
