The NRC also updated and revised NUREG–1437, “Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants,” which the NRC issued in May 1996. The revised GEIS provides the technical basis for amending the NRC environmental protection regulations as noted above. The NRC has also revised NUREG–1555, Supplement 1, “Standard Review Plans for Environmental Reviews for Nuclear Power Plants, Supplement 1: Operating License Renewal” (ESRP). The ESRP serves as a guide to the NRC staff in preparing a plant-specific supplemental environmental impact statement to the GEIS.
