ACTION: Interim staff guidance; issuance. AGENCY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing Interim Staff Guidance (ISG) Digital Instrumentation and Controls (DI&C)— ISG–06, Revision 2, ‘‘Licensing Process.’’ This ISG defines the licensing process used to support the review of license amendment requests (LARs) associated with safety-related D&IC equipment modifications in operating plants and in new plants once they become operational. This ISG provides guidance for activities performed before a LAR is submitted and for activities performed during LAR review. The NRC staff uses the process described in this ISG to evaluate compliance with NRC regulations. SUMMARY: This guidance is available on January 31, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The NRC published a notice of the availability of ISG–06, Rev. 2, in the Federal Register (83 FR 38731) on August 7, 2018, for a 30-day public comment period. The public comment period closed on September 6, 2018. Public comments on ISG–06, Rev. 2, and the staff responses to the public comments are available under ADAMS Accession No. ML18290A623. This ISG provides guidance for the NRC staff’s review of LARs supporting installation of Digital I&C equipment in accordance with licensing processes defined in the NRC’s office instruction LIC–101, ‘‘License Amendment Review Procedures.’’ This ISG identifies information the NRC staff should review for Digital I&C equipment. This ISG provides guidance on when that information should be reviewed. This ISG is designed to be used with the NRC’s topical report review and approval process defined in the NRC’s Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation office instruction LIC–500, ‘‘Topical Report Process.’’ Where a licensee references an NRC-approved topical report, the NRC staff should be able to, where appropriate, limit its review to assessing whether the application of the Digital I&C modification falls within the envelope of the topical report approval. This ISG was developed based upon, and is designed to work in concert with, established guidance. As a result, this ISG references other guidance documents for review criteria.
