Standard Review Plan for Spent Fuel Dry Storage Systems and Facilities, 52944-52945 [2017-24734]

Download as PDF 52944 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 219 / Wednesday, November 15, 2017 / Notices observations, fostering communitybased participatory research, and the integral contributions of Indigenous knowledge in the co-production and dissemination of knowledge. IARPC requests input from the public on how best to revise and strengthen the Principles for the Conduct of Research in the Arctic (https://www.nsf.gov/geo/ opp/arctic/conduct.jsp), on how to disseminate the Principles, and on supporting the implementation of the Principles. Collaboration is needed at all stages of research planning, implementation, and reporting of projects that directly affect northern communities. Cooperation will contribute to a better understanding of the potential benefits of Arctic research for northern residents and will enhance the development of Arctic science by including Indigenous knowledge and experience. IARPC is interested in all suggestions for how to improve the Principles and information about how consultation and collaboration are working. The Working Group leading this effort drafted the following list of questions to consider. We welcome input on these issues and any others the public deems relevant. • What are the most important 3–5 principles for researchers to follow? • What elements of the Principles should be retained? • What are ways in which engagement between researchers and communities can be improved? • How can the Principles be made more widely known to researchers and to northern residents? The effort to revise the Principles is intended to collect input from the broadest set of stakeholders on the Principles document to include northern residents, Alaska Native communities, other Arctic Indigenous peoples, researchers, state and federal agency representatives, and others.

independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI) or a monitored 
retrievable storage installation (MRS). This draft SRP will replace 
NUREG-1536, ``Standard Review Plan for Dry Cask Storage Systems,'' 
NUREG-1567, ``Standard Review Plan for Spent Fuel Dry Storage 
Facilities, and all Interim Staff Guidance (ISGs) that were used to 
enhance these NUREGs.

II. Discussion

    The NRC utilizes information that is currently contained in 
multiple documents (NUREG-1536, NUREG-1567, and numerous ISGs) to 
assist the NRC staff in its reviews of spent fuel storage applications. 
The NRC's intent in combining and updating these documents into one 
document is to assist the NRC staff in its reviews by promoting a 
consistent regulatory review of a SAR for an ISFSI or a MRS license, or 
for a CoC; by promoting quality and uniformity of these reviews across 
each technical discipline; presenting a basis for the review's scope; 
identifying acceptable approaches to meeting regulatory requirements; 
and suggesting possible evaluation findings that can be used in the 
safety evaluation report for applications submitted under part 72 of 
title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
    By this action, the NRC is requesting public comments on draft 
NUREG-2215. The NRC invites comments on all portions of this SRP that 
the commenter thinks the NRC should consider. The NRC will make a final 
determination regarding issuance of the NUREG after it considers any 
public comments received in response to this request.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 8th day of November 2017.
