Office of New Reactors; Interim Staff Guidance on the Review of Nuclear Power Plant Designs Using a Gas Turbine Driven Standby Emergency Alternating Current Power System
Document Number: 2010-2287
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-02-03
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The NRC staff is soliciting public comment on its proposed Interim Staff Guidance (ISG) DC/COL-ISG-021 titled ``Interim Staff Guidance on the Review of Nuclear Power Plant Designs Using a Gas Turbine Driven Standby Emergency Alternating Current Power System,'' (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML092640035). This ISG provides new guidance information for applicants submitting a combined license (COL) or design certification (DC) for construction and operation of new reactors submitted under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 52. In addition, it supplements the guidance provided to the NRC staff in other sections of NUREG-0800, ``Standard Review Plan for the Review of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power Plants,'' March 2007, Standard Review Plan (SRP), Section 8.3.1 and Sections 9.5.4 through 9.5.8. The NRC staff issues DC/COL-ISGs to facilitate timely implementation of current staff guidance and to facilitate activities associated with review of applications for DCs and COLs by the Office of New Reactors (NRO). The NRC staff intends to incorporate the final approved DC/COL-ISG-021 into the next revision of SRP Section 8.3.1 and Sections 9.5.4 through 9.5.8 and Regulatory Guide 1.206, ``Combined License Applications for Nuclear Power Plants (LWR Edition),'' June 2007.
