ACTION: Regulatory guide; issuance. AGENCY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing Revision 3 to Regulatory Guide (RG) 3.71, ‘‘Nuclear Criticality Safety Standards for Nuclear Materials Outside Reactor Cores.’’ Revision 3 endorses guidance in multiple American National Standards Institute/American Nuclear Society (ANSI/ANS)–8 standards, as well as a specific International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Standard. In addition, the scope of this guide is expanded to include packaging and transportation and certain storage facilities because many of the standards are based on broad principles that are not limited solely to fuel processing facilities.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Christopher Tripp, Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards, telephone: 301–415–8741, email: Christopher.Tripp@nrc.gov, and Harriet Karagiannis, telephone: 301–415–2493, email: Harriet.Karagiannis@nrc.gov, Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research. Both are staff members of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555–0001. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Discussion The NRC is issuing a revision to an existing guide in the NRC’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information regarding methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the agency’s regulations, techniques that the NRC staff uses in evaluating specific issues or postulated events, and data that the NRC staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. Revision 3 to RG 3.71 describes procedures for preventing nuclear criticality accidents in operations that involve handling, processing, storing, or transporting special nuclear materials (or a combination of these activities). Revision 3 was issued with a temporary identification of Draft Regulatory Guide, (DG)-3053, ‘‘Nuclear Criticality Safety Standards for Nuclear Materials outside Reactor Cores,’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML17055B591). This revision endorses the most recent American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-approved versions of American Nuclear Society (ANS) Subcommittee-8 (ANSI/ANS–8) standards, as well as ISO Standard 7753:1987, ‘‘Nuclear Energy— Performance and Testing Requirements for Criticality Detection and Alarm Systems.’’ In addition, the scope of this guide is expanded beyond 10 CFR part PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 70 fuel facilities to include packaging and transportation under 10 CFR part 71 and storage facilities under 10 CFR part 72, because many of the standards are based on broad principles that are not limited solely to fuel processing facilities. II. Additional Information The NRC published a notice of the availability of DG–3053 in the Federal Register on August 24, 2017 (82 FR 40173), for a 60-day public comment period. The public comment period closed on October 23, 2017. Public comments on DG–3053 and the staff responses to the public comments are available under ADAMS under Accession No. ML18169A253. III. Congressional Review Act This RG is a rule as defined in the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801–808). However, the Office of Management and Budget has not found it to be a major rule as defined in the Congressional Review Act. IV. Backfitting and Issue Finality This RG provides updates based on changes to ANSI/ANS standards, as well as endorsing an ISO standard, and expands the scope of the RG beyond 10 CFR part 70 to include 10 CFR part 71 and 10 CFR part 72 licensees. Issuance of RG 3.71 would not constitute backfitting under 10 CFR part 70 or 10 CFR part 72. As discussed in the ‘‘Implementation’’ section of this RG, the NRC has no current intention to impose the RG on current holders of 10 CFR part 70 or 10 CFR part 72 licenses. The RG could be applied to applications for licenses issued under 10 CFR part 70 or 10 CFR part 72 or amendments thereto. Such action would not constitute backfitting as defined in 10 CFR 70.76 or 10 CFR 72.62, inasmuch as such applicants are not within the scope of entities protected by 10 CFR 70.76 or 10 CFR 72.62. Backfit and issue finality considerations do not apply to licensees and applicants under 10 CFR part 71. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 27th day of September 2018. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Thomas H. Boyce, Chief, Regulatory Guidance and Generic Issues Branch, Division of Engineering, Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research.
