Regulatory Basis for Rulemaking

The NRC is issuing a regulatory basis document to support the potential amendment of its regulations concerning nuclear power plant licensees’ and applicants’ “Station Blackout Mitigation Strategies.” The issuance of this regulatory basis document is one of the actions stemming from the NRC’s lessons-learned efforts associated with the March 2011 Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident in Japan. The NRC is not instituting a public comment period at this time.
