Background

    This notice describes procedures to be followed with respect to

Advisory Committee Act (FACA). These procedures are set forth so that 
they may be incorporated by reference in future notices for individual 
meetings.
    The ACRS is a statutory advisory Committee established by Congress 
to review and report on nuclear safety matters and applications for the 
licensing of nuclear facilities. The Committee's reports become a part 
of the public record.
    The ACRS meetings are conducted in accordance with FACA; they are 
normally open to the public and provide opportunities for oral or 
written statements from members of the public to be considered as part 
of the Committee's information gathering process. ACRS reviews do not 
normally encompass matters pertaining to environmental impacts other 
than those related to radiological safety.
    The ACRS meetings are not adjudicatory hearings such as those 
conducted by the NRC's Atomic Safety and Licensing Board Panel as part 
of the Commission's licensing process.
