Performance-Based Emergency Core Cooling System Acceptance Criteria
Document Number: E9-19423
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-08-13
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
This advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) presents a conceptual approach that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering in a rulemaking effort to revise the acceptance criteria for emergency core cooling systems (ECCSs) for light-water nuclear power reactors as currently required by NRC regulations that govern domestic licensing of production and utilization facilities. Revised ECCS acceptance criteria would reflect recent research findings that indicate the current criteria should be re-evaluated for all fuel cladding materials in all potential conditions. Further, the NRC is considering an approach that would expand the applicability of the rule to all current and future cladding materials, modify the reporting

Risk-Informed Changes to Loss-of-Coolant Accident Technical Requirements
Document Number: E9-18547
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-08-10
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend its regulations 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 (LOCAs). 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.
Request for Information on Low-Level Radioactive Waste Disposal and Notice of Public Meeting
Document Number: E9-18947
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-08-07
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff is conducting a public meeting to gather information to assess the effect of a lack of access to low-level waste (LLW) disposal facilities on those who use radioactive sources or materials in conducting research such as universities and hospitals. The purpose of this information gathering is to identify important research that has been impacted and/ or stopped because of a lack of disposal options for radioactive sources or materials. This information will be provided to the Commission to inform future Commission decisionmaking. The NRC is planning to host a public meeting on this topic at its Rockville, MD Headquarters on the morning of October 7, 2009.

Uranerz Energy Corporation; Nichols Ranch In-Situ Recovery Project; New Source Material License Application; Notice of Intent To Prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement
Document Number: E9-18687
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-08-05
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
Uranerz Energy Corporation (Uranerz) submitted an application for a new source material license for the Nichols Ranch In-Situ Recovery (ISR) Project to be located in Campbell and Johnson Counties, Wyoming, approximately 46 miles south-southwest of Gillette, Wyoming and approximately 61 miles north-northeast of Casper, Wyoming. The application proposes the construction, operation, and decommissioning of ISR, also known as in-situ leach, facilities and restoration of the aquifer from which the uranium is being extracted. Uranerz submitted the application for the new source material license to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) by a letter dated November 30, 2007. A notice of receipt and availability of the license application, including the Environmental Report (ER), and opportunity to request a hearing was published in the Federal Register on June 16, 2008 (73 FR 34052). The purpose of this notice of intent is to inform the public that the NRC will be preparing a site-specific Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) to the Generic Environmental Impact Statement for In-Situ Leach Uranium Milling Facilities (ISR GEIS) for a new source material license for the Nichols Ranch ISR Project, as required by 10 CFR 51.26(d). In addition, as outlined in 36 CFR 800.8, ``Coordination with the National Environmental Policy Act,'' the NRC plans to use the environmental review process as reflected in 10 CFR part 51 to coordinate compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

Industry Codes and Standards; Amended Requirements
Document Number: E9-18549
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-08-05
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The NRC is proposing to amend its regulation governing vessel head inspection requirements. This amendment would revise the upper range of the percentage of axial flaws permitted in a specimen set used in the qualification of nondestructive examination systems (procedures, personnel and equipment), for the performance of inservice inspection (ISI) of pressurized water reactor (PWR) upper reactor vessel head penetrations. This amendment is being proposed as a result of the withdrawal of a stakeholder's recommendation necessitated by a typographical error in the original recommendation with respect to the maximum percentage of flaws that should be oriented axially.

Limiting the Quantity of Byproduct Material in a Generally Licensed Device
Document Number: E9-18438
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-08-03
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend its regulations to limit the quantity of byproduct material contained in a generally licensed device to below one-tenth (1/10) of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Category 3 thresholds. As a result of this amendment, individuals possessing devices with byproduct material meeting or exceeding these thresholds would be required to apply for and obtain a specific license. The NRC is also proposing to further clarify the requirements that apply when a device authorized to be used under the general license is instead held under a specific license. The proposed amendments would also modify the Compatibility Categories contained in the current regulations.
