SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Discussion

    The NRC issues RGs to describe methods that are acceptable to the 
staff for implementing specific parts of the agency's regulations, to 
explain techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific issues or 
postulated events, and to describe information that the staff needs in 
its review of applications for permits and licenses. Regulatory guides 
are not NRC regulations and compliance with them is not required. 
Methods and solutions that differ from those set forth in RGs are 
acceptable if supported by a basis for the issuance or continuance of a 
permit or license by the Commission.
    Revision 2 of RG 7.4 was issued with a temporary identification of 
Draft Regulatory Guide, DG-7010. RG 7.4 (Revision 2) endorses an update 
to ANSI N14.5-2014, ``American National Standard for Radioactive 
Materials--Leakage Tests on Packages for Shipment,'' that has new 
information, corrections, and clarifications, to ensure integrity of 
radioactive material containers and to minimize the distribution of 
contamination to the environment.

II. Additional Information

    The NRC published a notice of the availability of DG-7010 in the 
Federal Register on April 8, 2019 (84 FR 13969) for a 60-day public 
comment period. The public comment period closed on June 7, 2019, and 
the NRC received four comment documents. Public comments on DG-7010 and 
the staff responses to the public comments are available in ADAMS under 
Accession No. ML19240B379. Revision 2 to RG 7.4 and the regulatory 
analysis may be found in ADAMS under Accession Nos. ML19240B383 and 
ML20034F254, respectively.

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, Forward Fitting, and Issue Finality

    As discussed in Section D, ``Implementation,'' of RG 7.4, the NRC 
staff does not intend to use the guidance in this regulatory guide to 
support NRC staff actions in a manner that would constitute backfitting 
as that term is defined in section 50.109 of title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ``Backfitting,'' and as described in NRC 
Management Directive 8.4, ``Management of Backfitting, Forward Fitting, 
Issue Finality, and Information Requests,'' nor does the NRC staff 
intend to use the guidance to affect the issue finality of an approval 
under 10 CFR part 52, ``Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for 
Nuclear Power Plants.'' The staff also does not intend to use the 
guidance to support NRC staff

actions in a manner that constitutes forward fitting as that term is 
defined and described in Management Directive 8.4.
