Draft NUREG/CR for Public Comment

The NRC is requesting public comment on the proposed draft NUREG/CR–7135, “Compensatory and Alternative Regulatory Measures for Nuclear Power Plant Fire Protection (CARMEN–FIRE), Draft Report for Comment.” This report is intended to serve as a reference guide for NRC Staff evaluating the acceptability of alternative interim compensatory measures provided to offset the degradation in fire safety caused by impaired fire protection features at nuclear power plants. The NRC is seeking feedback on three particular questions, and comments are due by August 30, 2013.
