Document Number: 2019-22277
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-10-11
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In approximately 4 to 7 months, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will publish in the Federal Register a notice of intended operation, which will allow the public to submit requests for hearing regarding the licensee's conformance with the acceptance criteria in the combined license (COL) for Vogtle Electric Generating Plant (VEGP) Unit 3. These acceptance criteria are part of the inspections, tests, analyses, and acceptance criteria (ITAAC) included in the COL. If a member of the public believes access to Safeguards Information (SGI) is necessary to file a hearing request, then members of the public must satisfy several standards, including a determination by the NRC that they are ``trustworthy and reliable.'' Because the background checks used to support trustworthiness and reliability determinations take some time to complete, the NRC is providing this ``pre-clearance'' process, by which members of the public may initiate background checks to be completed by an investigative agency well before the hearing process begins. Also, the NRC will hold a public information meeting on the ITAAC hearing process.

Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is correcting a notice that was published in the Federal Register on July 30, 2019, regarding reissuing for public comment draft regulatory guide (DG), DG- 1327, ``Pressurized Water Reactor Control Rod Ejection and Boiling Water Reactor Control Rod Drop Accidents.'' This action is necessary to correct the NRC Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) number of the DG for which NRC is soliciting comments. The public comment period was originally scheduled to close on October 30, 2019. The NRC has decided to extend the public comment period to allow more time for members of the public to develop and submit their comments.
