Acceptability of Probabilistic Risk Assessment Results for Risk-Informed Activities
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for public comment draft regulatory guide (DG), DG-1362, ``Acceptability of Probabilistic Risk Assessment Results for Risk-Informed Activities.'' This proposed guide, which is Revision 3 to Regulatory Guide (RG) 1.200, describes one acceptable approach for determining whether a base probabilistic risk assessment (PRA), in total or the portions that are used to support an application, is acceptable to provide confidence in the results, such that the PRA can be used in regulatory decision- making for light-water reactors. When used in support of an application, the use of this RG will obviate the need for an in-depth review of the base PRA by NRC reviewers, allowing them to focus their review on key assumptions and areas identified by peer reviewers.
Information Collection: Grants and Cooperative Agreement Provisions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) invites public comment on the renewal of Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for an existing collection of information. The information collection is entitled, ``Grants and Cooperative Agreement Provisions.''
Holtec Decommissioning International, LLC; Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) received and is considering approval of an amendment to Renewed Facility Operating License No. DPR-35, issued to Holtec Decommissioning International, LLC for the decommissioning of the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station (Pilgrim). The amendment would amend the Pilgrim Physical Security Plan and amend License Condition 3.G, ``Physical Protection.'' The proposed revised Physical Security Plan would integrate the existing Physical Security Plan's Appendix D. Holtec Decommissioning International, LLC indicated that this proposed appendix provides the security requirements for the new Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation that is currently being built in the Owner Controlled Area outside of the existing Pilgrim Protected Area. According to Holtec Decommissioning International, LLC, the Security Training and Qualification Plan and the Safeguards Contingency Plan are included in the proposed revised Physical Security Plan but remain unchanged from the existing Physical Security Plan. The NRC proposes to determine that the amendment involves no significant hazards consideration. Because the amendment request contains safeguards information (SGI), an order imposes procedures to obtain access to SGI for contention preparation.
