SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In October 2017, the NRC issued a draft of the guidance document to obtain public input on how to improve the alternative disposal process (ADAMS Package Accession No. ML17229B588). A notice of availability, requesting comment on the draft guidance document, was published in the Federal Register (82 FR 48727; October 19, 2017). This Federal Register notice provided background information regarding the draft guidance document, solicited public comments, and provided notice of the NRC’s plans to hold a public meeting to discuss the document and receive comments on the proposed changes, which occurred on October 19, 2017. The NRC reviewed and now responds to all the comments from the initial comment period. The NRC staff’s resolution of these comments is incorporated into a response document that is included in the supporting documents for this updated revision to the guidance document (ADAMS Package Accession No. ML19295F109). Comments received addressed the following issues: General; Policy/ Rulemaking; Agreement State/ Regulatory Overlap; Unimportant Quantities of Radioactive Material; Performance Assessment; Compliance Period and Analysis Timeframes; Radon; Other Off-Site Disposals— Release of Solid Material with Volumetric Contamination; Transportation; and Cumulative Impacts. The NRC staff revised the guidance document in several areas, including the discussions on performance assessment, off-site burial disposals, regulatory requirements, requests for additional information, other off-site disposals, release of solid material with volumetric contamination, non-licensees, and the overall 10 CFR 20.2002 process in response to comments. The purpose of this revision to the guidance is to improve the alternative disposal process by further clarifying the methods and information needed to dispose of waste using an alternate process. This document is a rule as defined in the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801–808). However, the Office of VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:35 Apr 08, 2020 Jkt 250001 Management and Budget has not found it to be a major rule as defined in the Congressional Review Act.

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 1 of RG 1.199 was issued for public comment with a 
temporary identification of Draft Regulatory Guide, DG-1284. The 
revision addresses changes in the codes and standards endorsed by 
Revision 0 of the guide. The revised codes and standards endorsed by 
Revision 1 include: (1) Appendix D, ``Anchoring to Concrete,'' of 
American Concrete Institute (ACI) 349-13, ``Code Requirements for 
Nuclear Safety-Related Concrete Structures and Commentary,'' (2) ACI 
355.2-07, ``Qualification of Post-Installed Mechanical Anchors in 
Concrete and Commentary,'' and (3) American Society for Testing and 
Materials (ASTM) E488/E488M-15, ``Standard Test Methods for Strength of 
Anchors in Concrete Elements.''

II. Additional Information

    The NRC published a notice of the availability of DG-1284 in the 
Federal Register on April 22, 2019 (84 FR 16699) for a 60-day public 
comment period. The public comment period closed on June 21, 2019 and 
there were no public comments on the guide.

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

components and structural supports in concrete for nuclear power plants 
licensed under 10 CFR parts 50 and 52. The issuance of this regulatory 
guide does not constitute backfitting as defined in 10 CFR 50.109, 
``Backfitting,'' and as described in NRC Management Directive 8.4, 
``Management of Backfitting, Forward Fitting, Issue Finality, and 
Information Requests,'' or affect issue finality of any approval issued 
under 10 CFR part 52, ``Licenses, Certificates, and Approvals for 
Nuclear Power Plants,'' because, as explained in this regulatory guide, 
licensees are not required to comply with the positions set forth in
