Risk-Informed Changes to Loss-of-Coolant Accident Technical Requirements
Document Number: E9-23043
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-09-24
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
On August 10, 2009, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published for public comment a supplemental proposed rule that would amend the requirements that govern domestic licensing of production and utilization facilities and licenses, certifications, and approvals for nuclear power plants to allow current and certain future power reactor licensees and applicants to choose to implement a risk-informed alternative to the current requirements for analyzing the performance of emergency core cooling systems (ECCS) during loss-of-coolant accidents (LOCA). The proposed amendments would also establish procedures and acceptance criteria for evaluating certain changes in plant design and operation based upon the results of the new analyses of ECCS performance.

Proposed Standard Review Plan; Branch Technical Position 18-1 on Guidance for Evaluating Minimum Inventory of Alarms, Controls, and Displays for New Light-Water Reactor Plant Designs
Document Number: E9-22557
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-09-18
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The NRC is requesting public comment on NUREG-0800, ``Standard Review Plan for the Review of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power Plants,'' Branch Technical Position (BTP) 18-1, on Guidance for Evaluating Minimum Inventory of Alarms, Controls, and Displays for New Light Water Reactor Plant Designs (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML092330826). This BTP is to be cited as the acceptance criteria for the minimum inventory of controls, displays, and alarms in the Standard Review Plan (SRP) Chapter 18, Section II.A.7, item 8 for those standard designs that have not been certified prior to the date of this BTP. When BTP 18-1 is issued as final, Chapter 18, Section II.A.7, item 8, which currently states, ``8. A minimum inventory of controls, displays, and alarms,'' will be revised to read, ``8. A minimum inventory of controls, displays, and alarms (See the guidance in BTP 18-1 for designs that the NRC has not previously certified).'' (Material in parenthesis is added as a pointer to the BTP.)

Notice of Opportunity for Public Comment on the Proposed Model Safety Evaluation for Plant-Specific Adoption of Technical Specification Task Force Traveler-446, Revision 3, “Risk Informed Evaluation of Extensions to Containment Isolation Valve Completion Times (WCAP-15791)”
Document Number: E9-22182
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-09-15
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The NRC is requesting public comment on the enclosed proposed model safety evaluation, model no significant hazards consideration determination, and model application for plant-specific adoption of Technical Specification Task Force (TSTF) Traveler-446, Revision 3, ``Risk Informed Evaluation of Extensions to Containment Isolation Valve Completion Times (WCAP-15791).'' The TSTF Traveler-446, Revision 3 is available in the Agencywide Documents Access Management System (ADAMS) under Accession Number ML080510164. The proposed changes would revise technical specification (TS) containment isolation valve (CIV) completion times for Westinghouse plants. This model safety evaluation will facilitate expedited approval of plant-specific adoption of TSTF Traveler-446, Revision 3.
License and Certificate of Compliance Terms
Document Number: E9-22126
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-09-15
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend its regulations that govern licensing requirements for the independent storage of spent nuclear fuel. These proposed amendments include changes that would enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the licensing process for spent nuclear fuel storage. Specifically, they would clarify the term limits for dry storage cask Certificates of Compliance (CoCs) and independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI) specific licenses. The proposed amendments would also provide consistency between the general and specific ISFSI license requirements, and allow general licensees subject to these regulations to implement changes authorized by an amended CoC to a cask loaded under the initial CoC or an earlier amended CoC (a ``previously loaded cask'').

Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (Commission or NRC) is issuing, with the approval of the U.S. Attorney General, guidelines on the use of firearms by security personnel whose official duties include the protection of NRC-regulated facilities, radioactive material, or other property.

Section 653 of the Act amended the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 (AEA) by adding new section 161A., regarding the use of firearms by security personnel. Under the provisions of section 161A.d., section 161A. takes effect on the date that these guidelines are issued by the Commission, with the approval of the Attorney General.

State of Colorado and the Organization of Agreement States; Consideration of Petition in the Rulemaking Process
Document Number: E9-21860
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-09-10
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) received a petition for rulemaking dated May 10, 1999, filed by the State of Colorado and the Organization of Agreement States. The petition was docketed by the NRC and was assigned as PRM-40-27. The petitioners requested that the NRC regulations governing small quantities of source material be amended to eliminate the exemption for source material general licensees from the requirements that specify standards of protection against radiation, and require notification and instruction of individuals who participate in licensed activities. The petitioners believe that no basis exists for the existing exemption for these licensees from these requirements and that the licensee could exceed dose limits, in certain situations, that would normally apply to licensed operations. The NRC reviewed the petition and determined that this petition merits further consideration. Therefore, the concerns and issues raised in the petition will continue to be considered through an ongoing rulemaking.
