The NRC does not routinely edit comment submissions to remove identifying or contact information. If you are requesting or aggregating comments from other persons for submission to the NRC, then you should inform those persons not to include identifying or contact information that they do not want to be publicly disclosed in their comment submission. Your request should state that the NRC does not routinely edit comment submissions to remove such information before making the comment submissions available to the public or entering the comment submissions into ADAMS. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES II. Additional Information The NRC is issuing for public comment a DG in the NRC’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe methods that are acceptable to the NRC 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. This DG, identified by its task number, DG–4030, titled, ‘‘Use of ARCON Methodology for Calculation of Accident-Related Offsite Atmospheric Dispersion Factors,’’ is a proposed new RG 4.28 (ADAMS Accession No. ML21165A005). This proposed new RG 4.28 provides guidance to industry for complying with and implementing the NRC requirements by endorsing the use of the ARCON computer code to calculate offsite dispersion values out to distances of 1,200 m (3,937 ft) that could include the exclusion area boundary and/or low-population zone. RG 1.194 (ADAMS Accession No. ML031530505) endorses the use of the ARCON96 computer code for calculating accident-related onsite (control room and technical support center) atmospheric dispersion values which are direct inputs to habitability dose assessments. In addition, RG 1.145, ‘‘Atmospheric Dispersion Models for Potential Accident Consequence Assessments at Nuclear Power Plants’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML12216A014), provides the present methodology incorporated into the PAVAN computer code, as reviewed by the staff using NUREG–0800 at https://www.nrc.gov/ reading-rm/doc-collections/nuregs/staff/ sr0800/index.html (ADAMS Accession No. ML070810350), SRP Section 2.3.4 for calculating accident-related related, offsite atmospheric dispersion values. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:08 Aug 16, 2021 Jkt 253001 RG 4.28 will provide new guidance for applicants and licensees subject to Part 50 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities’’; 10 CFR part 52, ‘‘Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants’’; and 10 CFR part 100, ‘‘Reactor site criteria.’’ The staff is also issuing for public comment a draft regulatory analysis (ADAMS Accession No. ML21165A007). The staff develops a regulatory analysis to assess the value of issuing or revising a regulatory guide as well as alternative courses of action. III. Backfitting, Forward Fitting, and Issue Finality Issuance of DG–4030, if finalized, would not constitute backfitting as that term is defined in 10 CFR 50.109, ‘‘Backfitting’’ and as described in NRC Management Directive (MD) 8.4, ‘‘Management of Backfitting, Forward Fitting, Issue Finality, and Information Requests’’; constitute forward fitting as that term is defined and described in MD 8.4; or affect issue finality of any approval issued under 10 CFR part 52. As explained in DG–4030, applicants and licensees are not required to comply with the positions set forth in DG–4030. Dated: August 10, 2021. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Ronaldo V.
