Medical Evaluation of Licensed Personnel for Nuclear Power Plants
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for public comment draft regulatory guide (DG), DG-1310, ``Medical Evaluation of Licensed Personnel for Nuclear Power Plants,'' which would be Revision 4 to Regulatory Guide (RG) 1.134. The NRC proposes to update RG 1.134 based upon the regulatory experience gained since Revision 3 of RG 1.134 was issued and to endorse the 2013 revision to the underlying consensus standard, ANSI/ANS 3.4, ``Medical Certification and Monitoring of Personnel Requiring Licenses for Nuclear Power Plants.'' The guide helps to ensure that medical certifications (and related medical evidence) are sufficient to meet the NRC's nuclear power reactor operator licensing requirements.
