Drafts for Comment

The NRC requests public comment on Draft Spent Fuel Storage and Transportation Interim Staff Guidance No. 24 (SFST–ISG–24), Revision 0, ‘‘The Use of a Demonstration Program as Confirmation of Integrity for Continued Storage of High Burnup Fuel Beyond 20 Years.’’ The draft SFST–ISG provides guidance to the staff for reviewing if a demonstration of high burnup fuel (HBF) has the necessary properties to qualify as one method that an applicant might use in license and certificate of compliance (CoC) applications to demonstrate compliance with the NRC’s regulations. This guidance applies to license and CoC applications for the storage of HBF for periods greater than 20 years. Comments are due by August 19, 2013.
