Introduction Regulatory guides may be withdrawn by the NRC when their guidance no longer provides useful information, or is superseded by technological innovations, congressional actions, or other events. The NRC is withdrawing RG 1.167 because its guidance has been incorporated into RG 1.166, ‘‘Pre- VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Feb 20, 2020 Jkt 250001 Earthquake Planning, Shutdown, and Restart of a Nuclear Power Plant Following an Earthquake’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML19266A616). II. Further Information The withdrawal of RG 1.167 does not alter any prior or existing NRC licensing approval or the acceptability of licensee commitments to this RG. Although RG 1.167 is withdrawn, current licensees may continue to use it, and withdrawal does not affect any existing licenses or agreements. However, by withdrawing RG 1.167, the NRC no longer approves the guidance in this RG for use in future requests or applications for NRC licensing actions. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 14th day of February 2020. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Stanley J. Gardocki, Acting Chief, Regulatory Guidance and Generic Issues Branch, Division of Engineering, Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research.
