SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Discussion

    NUREG-2103 provides the basis for development of content valid 
examinations used for licensing operators at Westinghouse AP1000 
pressurized water reactors under the Commission's regulations contained 
in part 55 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), 
``Operator Licenses.'' The examinations developed using NUREG-2103 
along with NUREG-1021, ``Operator Licensing Examination Standards for 
Power Reactors,'' will sample the topics listed in 10 CFR part 55.

II. Additional Information

    Draft NUREG-2103 was published in the Federal Register for public 
comment on November 29, 2011 (76 FR 73720). The comment period closed 
on December 31, 2016. The NRC staff's evaluation and resolution of the 
public comments are documented in ADAMS under Accession No. 
ML18240A235. Following issuance of the draft NUREG-2103 for public 
comment, additional operating procedures were developed for the AP1000, 
which resulted in the NRC staff adding related content to the KA 
catalog.

U.S.C. 801-808). However, the Office of Management and Budget has not 
found this NUREG to be a major rule as defined in the Congressional 
Review Act.
