Background SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: [FR Doc. 2020–20043 Filed 9–10–20; 8:45 am] 56281 Regulatory Guide 5.61 was published in July 1980 to provide guidance to affected licensees in revising their physical protection plans in response to the requirements in part 73 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘Physical Protection of Plants and Materials’’ (November 28, 1979; 44 FR 68184). The RG explains the link between the performance capabilities provided in 10 CFR 73.45 and the fixed site physical protection system requirements in 10 CFR 73.46. Future applicants and licensees may use other more relevant regulatory guidance documents to meet those regulatory requirements. The NRC is withdrawing RG 5.61, ‘‘Intent and Scope of the Physical Protection Upgrade Rule Requirements for Fixed Sites,’’ because the guide is no longer needed for several reasons. First, the regulatory requirements in 10 CFR 73.45 and 73.46 have not changed since 1979 and are well understood by existing licensees. Second, no new licensees that would possess and use formula quantities of strategic special nuclear material are expected in the foreseeable future. Third, the RG is predominately explanatory of the rulemaking rather than guidance on how to comply with the applicable requirements. Lastly, other guidance on developing security plans to meet the physical protection requirements in 10 CFR 73.46 are available. The basis for withdrawal of RG 5.61 is available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML20225A307. II. General Consideration The withdrawal of RG 5.61 does not alter any prior or existing NRC licensing approvals, or the acceptability of licensee commitments made regarding the withdrawn guidance. Although RG 5.61 is withdrawn, current licensees referencing this RG may continue to do so, and withdrawal does not affect any existing licenses or agreements. However, by withdrawing RG 5.61, the NRC no longer approves use of the guidance in future requests or applications for NRC licensing actions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Regulatory Guide 5.61 was published in July 1980 to provide 
guidance to affected licensees in revising their physical protection 
plans in response to the requirements in part 73 of title 10 of the 
Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ``Physical Protection of Plants 
and Materials'' (November 28, 1979; 44 FR 68184). The RG explains the 
link between the performance capabilities provided in 10 CFR 73.45 and 
the fixed site physical protection system requirements in 10 CFR 73.46. 
Future applicants and licensees may use other more relevant regulatory 
guidance documents to meet those regulatory requirements.
    The NRC is withdrawing RG 5.61, ``Intent and Scope of the Physical 
Protection Upgrade Rule Requirements for Fixed Sites,'' because the 
guide is no longer needed for several reasons. First, the regulatory 
requirements in 10 CFR 73.45 and 73.46 have not changed since 1979 and 
are well understood by existing licensees. Second, no new licensees 
that would possess and use formula quantities of strategic special 
nuclear material are expected in the foreseeable future. Third, the RG 
is predominately explanatory of the rulemaking rather than guidance on 
how to comply with the applicable requirements. Lastly, other guidance 
on developing security plans to meet the physical protection 
requirements in 10 CFR 73.46 are available. The basis for withdrawal of 
RG 5.61 is available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML20225A307.

II. General Consideration

    The withdrawal of RG 5.61 does not alter any prior or existing NRC 
licensing approvals, or the acceptability of licensee commitments made 
regarding the withdrawn guidance. Although RG 5.61 is withdrawn, 
current licensees referencing this RG may continue to do so, and 
withdrawal does not affect any existing licenses or agreements. 
However, by withdrawing RG 5.61, the NRC no longer approves use of the 
guidance in future requests or applications for NRC licensing actions.
