II. Additional Information The NRC is issuing for public comment a draft guide in the NRC’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public such information as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated events, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. The draft regulatory guide, entitled ‘‘Standard Format and Content of License Applications for Receipt and Storage of Unirradiated Power Reactor Fuel and Associated Radioactive Material at a Nuclear Power Plant,’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–3036. DG–3036 is proposed revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 3.15. The guide describes a method that the staff of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) considers acceptable for use in preparing license applications to authorize the receipt, possession, and storage of unirradiated fuel assemblies and associated radioactive materials at a nuclear power reactor for eventual use in that reactor and provides a format for a license application. This revision of the guide (revision 2) updates references and reflects experience gained in licensing, operation, and subsequent decommissioning of unirradiated power reactor fuel storage sites since the guide was addresses new issues identified since the guide was originally issued in April 1983. III. Backfitting, Issue Finality, and Forward Fitting Issuance of this draft regulatory guide in final form would not constitute E:\FR\FM\19FEN1.SGM 19FEN1
