US NRC Draft NUREG Available re Irradiators


It appears the US NRC has a draft NUREG available
electronically for those interested (see extract
from today's US Federal Register below).




Federal Register: April 23, 1998 (Volume 63, Number 78).
Section: Notices
Title: Consolidated Guidance About Materials Licenses:
       Program-Specific Guidance, Irradiator Licenses;
       Availability of Draft NUREG
Action: Notice of availability and request for comments.
Page: 20224-20225
SUMMARY: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is announcing the
availability of and requesting comment on draft NUREG-1556,
Volume 6, "Consolidated Guidance about Materials Licenses:
Program-Specific Guidance about 10 CFR Part 36 Irradiator
Licenses," dated March 1998. NRC is using Business Process
Redesign (BPR) techniques to redesign its materials
licensing process, as described in NUREG-1539, "Methodology
and Findings of the NRC's Materials Licensing Process
Redesign." A critical element of the new process is
consolidating and updating numerous guidance documents into
a NUREG-series of reports. This draft NUREG report is the
sixth program-specific guidance developed to support an
improved materials licensing process. It is intended for use
by applicants, licensees, NRC license reviewers, and other
NRC personnel. It combines and updates the guidance for
applicants and licensees previously found in Draft
Regulatory Guide DG-0003, "Guide for the Preparation of
Applications for Licenses for Non-Self-Contained
Irradiators," dated January 1994, and the guidance for
licensing staff previously found in NMSS Policy and
Guidance Directive, FC 84-23, "Standard Review Plan for
Licenses for the Use of Panoramic Dry Source-Storage
Irradiators, Self-Contained Wet Source-Storage, and
Panoramic Wet Source-Storage Irradiators," dated
December 27, 1984. In addition, this draft report also
contains pertinent information found in Technical
Assistance Requests and Information Notices. This draft
report is for public comment only, and is NOT for use in
preparing or reviewing applications for 10 CFR Part 36
irradiators until it is published in final form. It is
being distributed for comment to encourage public
participation in its development.

DATES: The comment period ends July 22, 1998. Comments
received after that time will be considered if practicable.

ADDRESSES: Submit written comments to: Chief, Rules and
Directives Branch, Division of Administrative Services,
Office of Administration, U. S. Nuclear Regulatory
Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001. Hand deliver
comments to 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland,
