Advanced Light-Water Reactor Probabilistic Risk Assessment
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing Interim Staff Guidance (ISG), DC/COL-ISG-028, ``Assessing the Technical Adequacy of the Advanced Light-Water Reactor Probabilistic Risk Assessment for the Design Certification Application and Combined License Application.'' The purpose of this ISG is to provide guidance for assessing the technical adequacy of the probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) needed for advanced light-water reactor (ALWR) design certification (DC) and combined license (COL) applications. This guidance addresses only the typical conditions for the DC and COL application.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending its regulations to make miscellaneous corrections. The amendments include correcting a senior NRC management position title; correcting terminology for consistency in NRC regulations; and correcting contact information, references, typographical errors, and misspellings. This document is necessary to inform the public of these non-substantive amendments to the NRC's regulations.
