Limit of Error Concepts and Principles of Calculation in Nuclear Materials Control
Document Number: 2017-03891
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-02-28
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing Regulatory Guide (RG) 5.18, ``Limit of Error Concepts and Principles of Calculation in Nuclear Materials Control.'' This RG is being withdrawn because the term ``limit of error'' is no longer used in the material control and accounting (MC&A) requirements in NRC's regulations, and therefore the RG 5.18 guidance is no longer needed. The MC&A requirements now include the term ``standard error'' in place of the term ``limit of error.'' The ``standard error'' term is used in evaluating the significance of an inventory difference (ID). The NRC has issued guidance separately for the term ``standard error.''
