Office of New Reactors; Notice of Availability of the Final Interim Staff Guidance DC/COL-ISG-05 on the Use of the GALE86 Code for Calculation of Routine Radioactive Releases in Gaseous and Liquid Effluents
Document Number: E8-16364
Type: Notice

Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The NRC is issuing its Final Interim Staff Guidance (ISG) DC/ COL-ISG-05 (ADAMS Accession No. ML081710264). This interim staff guidance supplements the guidance provided to the staff in Chapter 11, ``Radioactive Waste Management,'' of NUREG-0800, ``Standard Review Plan for the Review of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power Plants,'' concerning the review of radioactive releases in gaseous and liquid effluents (GALE) to support design certification (DC) and combined license (COL) applications. This guidance provides a clarification on the use of a newer version of the boiling-water reactor and pressurized-water reactors GALE codes that is not referenced in the current NRC guidance. The NRC staff issues DC/COL-ISGs to facilitate timely implementation of the current staff guidance and to facilitate activities associated with review of applications for DC and COLs by the Office of New Reactors. The NRC staff will also incorporate the approved DC/COL-ISGs into the next revision to the review guidance documents for applications for new reactors, RG 1.206 and RG 1.112. Disposition: On March 19, 2008, the staff issued the proposed ISG ``Use of the GALE86 Code for Calculation of Routine Radioactive Releases in Gaseous and Liquid Effluents to Support Design Certification and Combined License Applications,'' (COL/DC-ISG-005) (ADAMS Accession No. ML080650651) to solicit public and industry comment. The staff did not receive any comments on the draft ISG. Therefore, the ISG is now being issued for use.
Christine O. Gregoire, Governor of the State of Washington; Consideration of Petition in Rulemaking Process
Document Number: E8-16235

Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will consider the issues raised in a petition for rulemaking submitted by Christine O. Gregoire, Governor of the State of Washington, in the NRC's rulemaking process. Further information on this rulemaking may be tracked through http://www.regulations.gov under Docket ID NRC-2008-0120. The petition was docketed by the NRC on March 15, 2007, and was assigned Docket No. PRM-71-13 [NRC-2007-0022]. The petitioner requested that the NRC amend its regulations to require the use of global positioning satellite (GPS) for tracking vehicles transporting highly radioactive mobile or portable radioactive devices. The petitioner also stated that another alternative was for the Commission to grant states the flexibility to impose more stringent requirements than those required under NRC's current increased controls. The NRC has determined that this petition will be considered through NRC's rulemaking process.

Who is required or asked to report: Any physician, veterinarian in the practice of veterinary medicine, clinical laboratory or hospital which desires a general license to receive, acquire, possess, transfer, or use specified units of byproduct material in certain in vitro clinical or laboratory tests. 5.

The NRC invites public comment about our intention to request the OMB's approval for renewal of an existing information collection that is summarized below. We are required to publish this notice in the Federal Register under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted: 1. The title of the information collection: Voluntary Reporting of Performance Indicators. 2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0195. 3. How often the collection is required: Quarterly. 4. Who is required or asked to report: Power reactor licensees. 5. The number of annual respondents: 104. 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: Approximately 84,500 hours (83,200 reporting hours plus 1,300 recordkeeping hours for 26 recordkeepers). 7. Abstract: As part of a joint industry-NRC initiative, the NRC receives information submitted voluntarily by power reactor licensees regarding selected performance attributes known as performance indicators (PIs). PIs are objective measures of the performance of licensee systems or programs. The NRC's reactor oversight process uses PI information, along with the results of inspections, as the basis for NRC conclusions regarding plant performance and necessary regulatory response. Licensees transmit PIs electronically to reduce burden on themselves and the NRC. Submit, by August 29, 2008, comments that address the following questions: 1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical utility? 2. Is the burden estimate accurate? 3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected? 4. How can the burden of the information collection be minimized, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology?

The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 61 Licensing Requirements for Land Disposal of Radioactive Waste. 3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0135. 4. How often the collection is required: Applications for licenses are submitted as needed. Other reports are submitted annually and as other events require. 5. Who will be required or asked to report: Applicants for and holders of an NRC license (to include Agreement States) for land disposal of low-level radioactive waste; and all generators, collectors, and processors of low-level waste intended for disposal at a low-level waste facility. 6.

The NRC has recently submitted to OMB for review the following proposal for the collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). The NRC hereby informs potential respondents that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The NRC published a Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period on this information collection on March 19, 2008. 1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension. 2. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 241, ``Report of Proposed Activities in Non-Agreement States, Areas of Exclusive Federal Jurisdiction, or Offshore Waters.'' 3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0013. 4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 241. 5. How often the collection is required: NRC Form 241 must be submitted each time an Agreement State licensee wants to engage in or revise its activities involving the use of radioactive byproduct material in a non-Agreement State, areas of exclusive Federal jurisdiction, or offshore waters. The NRC may waive the requirements for filing additional copies of NRC Form 241 during the remainder of the calendar year following receipt of the initial form. 6. Who will be required or asked to report: Any licensee who holds a specific license from an Agreement State and wants to conduct the same activity in non-Agreement States, areas of exclusive Federal jurisdiction, or offshore waters under the general license in 10 CFR 150.20. 7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 2,188 responses. 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 140 respondents. 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 582 hours. 10. Abstract: Any Agreement State licensee who engages in the use of radioactive material in non-Agreement States, areas of exclusive Federal jurisdiction, or offshore waters, under the general license in Section 150.20, is required to file, with the NRC regional administrator for the region in which the Agreement State that issues the license is located, a copy of NRC Form 241 (``Report of Proposed Activities in Non-Agreement States, Areas of Exclusive Federal Jurisdiction, or Offshore Waters''), a copy of its Agreement State specific license, and the appropriate fee as prescribed in Section 170.31 at least 3 days before engaging in such activity. This mandatory notification permits NRC to schedule inspections of the activities to determine whether the activities are being conducted in accordance with requirements for protection of the public health and safety.
