License Renewal Interim Staff Guidance LR-ISG-2007-02: Changes to Generic Aging Lessons Learned Report Aging Management Program XI.E6, Electrical Cable Connections Not Subject to 10 CFR 50.49 Environmental Qualification Requirements”; Notice of Availability
Document Number: E9-30483
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-12-23
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The NRC is issuing the final License Renewal Interim Staff Guidance (LR-ISG), LR-ISG-2007-02, ``Changes to Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL) Report Aging Management Program (AMP) XI.E6, ``Electrical Cable Connections Not Subject to 10 CFR 50.49 Environmental Qualification Requirements.'' LR-ISG-2007-02 revises current NRC guidance in Section XI.E6 of NUREG-1801, Revision 1, ``Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL) Report,'' Volume 2, dated September 2005 (GALL Report). Volume 2 of the GALL Report is available in the NRC's Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) under Accession No. ML052780376. The revised GALL Report Section XI.E6 recommends an AMP with a one-time inspection for electrical cable connections not subject to 10 CFR 50.49 environmental qualification requirements, instead of the periodic inspection as currently recommended in the GALL Report. The NRC staff has determined that a one-time inspection, on a representative sample basis, is adequate to ensure that either aging of metallic cable connections is not occurring and/or that an existing preventive maintenance program is effective such that a periodic inspection is not required. The final LR-ISG-2007- 02 is available under Accession No. ML091940093.

Draft Technical Basis for Rulemaking Revising Security Requirements for Facilities Storing SNF and HLW; Notice of Availability and Solicitation of Public Comments
Document Number: E9-29872
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-12-16
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (Commission or NRC) is seeking input from the public, licensees, certificate holders, and other stakeholders on a draft technical basis for a proposed rulemaking that would revise the NRC's security requirements for the storage of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) at an Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) and the storage of SNF and/or high-level radioactive waste (HLW) at a Monitored Retrievable Storage Installation (MRS). This contemplated rulemaking would also make conforming changes to the ISFSI and MRS licensing requirements for security plans and programs. The NRC has developed a draft technical basis for this proposed rulemaking that describes the agency's overall objectives, conceptual approaches, potential solutions, integration with agency strategic goals, and related technical and regulatory clarity issues. The NRC is soliciting comments on this draft technical basis document from the public, licensees, and other stakeholders to confirm that an adequate technical basis exists to proceed with rulemaking to issue new risk-informed and performance-based security regulations for SNF and HLW storage facilities.
