Changes to Subsequent License Renewal Guidance Documents; Correction
On July 2, 2020, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) solicited comments on three draft interim staff guidance documents (ISGs) that propose changes to the NRC's subsequent license renewal guidance documents. Several aging management review (AMR) line items were inadvertently omitted from the draft mechanical ISG. These omitted AMR line items are provided in an errata document. The public comment period was originally scheduled to close on August 3, 2020. 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.
Information Collection: NRC Form 749, “Manual License Verification Report”/License Verification System
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has recently submitted a request for renewal of an existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review. The information collection is entitled, ``NRC Form 749, ``Manual License Verification Report''/License Verification System.''
Westinghouse Electric Company, LLC; Columbia Fuel Fabrication Facility
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will conduct a scoping process to gather information necessary to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) related to the review of Westinghouse Electric Company, LLC's (WEC) request to renew its operating license for its Columbia Fuel Fabrication Facility (CFFF) in Hopkins, South Carolina. The NRC had published a draft environmental assessment (EA) but determined it was not able to conclude the review in a finding of no significant impact. Therefore, the NRC staff will prepare an EIS to document the potential environmental impacts from the proposed action (i.e., whether to renew WEC's CFFF operating license) and reasonable alternatives. As part of the EIS development process, the NRC is seeking comments on the scope of its environmental review.
