II. Background The NRC has developed the IDHEAS– ECA human reliability analysis (HRA) method with a plan to replace the SPAR–H HRA method (NUREG/CR– 6883) currently in use for risk-informed applications. The IDHEA–ECA method was developed based on the IDHEAS–G methodology, Draft, NUREG–2198, ‘‘The General Methodology of an Integrated Human Event Analysis System (IDHEAS–G)’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML20238B988). IDHEAS–G provides all technical components required to develop application-specific HRA methods. IDHEAS–ECA modifies some of the technical components for the event condition assessment of the significance determination process. The NRC collects human reliability data to support the IDHEAS–ECA development. The data is documented in the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:53 Apr 07, 2021 Jkt 253001 Integrated Human Event Analysis System for Human Reliability Data (IDHEAS–DATA) report, Draft RIL– 2021–XX, ‘‘Integrated Human Event Analysis System for Human Reliability Data (IDHEAS–DATA)’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML20238B982). An important data source to the IDHEAS– DATA is the NRC’s Scenario Authoring, Characterization, and Debriefing Application (SACADA) project, is available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML17164A077, that collects operator performance information in simulator training. The IDHEAS–G, IDHEAS–DATA, and SACADA are foundation of IDHEAS–ECA. III. Specific Considerations IDHEAS–ECA is currently published as a RIL and is planned to be published as a NUREG report after addressing the public comments from this Federal Register notice. IDHEAS–ECA is an HRA method. The software tool (IDHEAS–ECA v1.1) is used to perform the calculations of the IDHEAS–ECA method. The NRC developed the IDHEAS–ECA software tool in-house and has all the rights to distribute the software licenses. The software is available for all U.S. citizens, but its availability to foreign citizens is decided on a case by case. To obtain a copy of the software, send an email to Y. James Chang (James.Chang@nrc.gov) on the subject line state ‘‘Request for IDHEAS– ECA software license.’’ In the email include the requestor’s name, email address, company, and nationality. Once the NRC determines to issue the free software license to the requester, the requester will receive an email from Dropbox, along with the instruction to download the software. IV. Public Meeting The NRC plans to hold a public meeting during the public comment period for this action. A public meeting is planned for April 8, 2021, via webinar. The NRC will present information about IDHEAS–G, IDHEAS– DATA, SACADA, and IDHEAS–ECA method and software tool during the public meeting. The information would facilitate having a holistic understanding of the IDHEAS–ECA development. The public meeting will provide a forum for the NRC staff to discuss issues and questions with members of the public. The NRC does not intend to provide any responses to comments submitted during the public meeting. The public meeting will be noticed on the NRC’s public meeting website at least 10 calendar days before the meeting. Members of the public should PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18329 monitor the NRC’s public meeting website for additional information about the public meetings at https:// www.nrc.gov/public-involve/publicmeetings/index.cfm.

nationality. Once the NRC determines to issue the free software license 
to the requester, the requester will receive an email from Dropbox, 
along with the instruction to download the software.

IV. Public Meeting

    The NRC plans to hold a public meeting during the public comment 
period for this action. A public meeting is planned for April 8, 2021,
