NextEra Energy Duane Arnold, LLC; Duane Arnold Energy Center
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued exemptions in response to a request from the licensee regarding certain emergency planning (EP) requirements. The exemptions eliminate the requirements to maintain an offsite radiological emergency preparedness plan and reduce the scope of onsite EP activities at the Duane Arnold Energy Center, based on the reduced risks of accidents that could result in an offsite radiological release at a decommissioning nuclear power reactor.
Regulatory Analysis Guidelines
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for public comment four draft appendices to NUREG/BR-0058, Revision 5, ``Regulatory Analysis Guidelines of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.'' The guidance provided in the draft appendices refines the information the staff uses when performing a cost-benefit analysis and addresses emergent policy issues and guidance enhancements. The draft appendices also incorporate pertinent information from NUREG/BR-0184, ``Regulatory Analysis Technical Handbook.'' A description of each draft appendix is provided in the Discussion section of this document.
