II. Discussion On July 2, 2020, the NRC solicited comments on three draft interim staff guidance documents (ISGs) that propose changes to the NRC’s subsequent license renewal guidance documents (85 FR 39938). The purpose of the ISGs is to incorporate lessons learned from the NRC staff’s safety reviews of the first three Subsequent License Renewal Applications (SLRAs) for Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Units 3 and 4, Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station, Units 2 and 3, and Surry Power Station, Units 1 and 2. Specifically, the ISGs revise guidance contained in NUREG–2191, ‘‘Generic Aging Lessons Learned for Subsequent License Renewal (GALL– SLR) Report,’’ and NUREG 2192, ‘‘Standard Review Plan for Review of Subsequent License Renewal Applications for Nuclear Power Plants.’’ NUREG–2191 and NUREG–2192 were published in July 2017 and are not scheduled to be updated for several years. The proposed changes to these documents are contained in the three draft ISGs that update aging management criteria for mechanical, structures, and electrical portions of the guidance. Several aging management review (AMR) line items were inadvertently omitted from the draft mechanical ISG. These omitted AMR line items are provided in an errata document. The public comment period was originally scheduled to close on August 3, 2020.

ACTION: Intent to prepare an environmental impact statement and conduct a scoping process; request for comment. AGENCY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will conduct a scoping process to gather information necessary to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) related to the review of Westinghouse Electric Company, LLC’s (WEC) request to renew its operating license for its Columbia Fuel Fabrication Facility (CFFF) in Hopkins, South Carolina.

II. Discussion

    On July 2, 2020, the NRC solicited comments on three draft interim 
staff guidance documents (ISGs) that propose changes to the NRC's 
subsequent license renewal guidance documents (85 FR 39938). The 
purpose of the ISGs is to incorporate lessons learned from the NRC 
staff's safety reviews of the first three Subsequent License Renewal 
Applications (SLRAs) for Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Units 3 and 4, 
Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station, Units 2 and 3, and Surry Power 
Station, Units 1 and 2. Specifically, the ISGs revise guidance 
contained in NUREG-2191, ``Generic Aging Lessons Learned for Subsequent 
License Renewal (GALL-SLR) Report,'' and NUREG 2192, ``Standard Review 
Plan for Review of Subsequent License Renewal Applications for Nuclear 
Power Plants.'' NUREG-2191 and NUREG-2192 were published in July 2017 
and are not scheduled to be updated for several years. The proposed 
changes to these documents are contained in the three draft ISGs that 
update aging management criteria for mechanical, structures, and 
electrical portions of the guidance. Several aging management review 
(AMR) line items were inadvertently omitted from the draft mechanical 
ISG. These omitted AMR line items are provided in an errata document. 
The public comment period was originally scheduled to close on August 
3, 2020. The NRC has decided to extend the public comment period on 
this document until August 10, 2020, to allow more time for members of 
the public to submit their comments.
