Changes to Subsequent License Renewal Guidance Documents
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for use and to solicit public comment, three draft interim staff guidance documents (ISGs) that propose changes to the NRC's subsequent license renewal guidance documents. Specifically, the ISGs revise guidance contained in NUREG-2191, ``Generic Aging Lessons Learned for Subsequent License Renewal (GALL-SLR) Report,'' and NUREG-2192, ``Standard Review Plan for Review of Subsequent License Renewal Applications for Nuclear Power Plants.'' NUREG-2191 and NUREG-2192 were published in July 2017 and are not scheduled to be updated for several years. The proposed changes to these documents are contained in the three draft ISGs that update aging management criteria for mechanical, structural, and electrical structures and components.
GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy, LLC
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued an exemption in response to a request from GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy, LLC (GEH) related to the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE). The exemption allows GEH to submit a renewal application for the Morris Operation Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) license, Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) License No. SNM-2500, after the timely renewal due date, while continuing to be afforded protection of the timely renewal provision contained in NRC regulations.
