NRC Issues Generic Technical Specification Travelers for AP1000

The NRC issued for public comment generic technical specification travelers (GTSTs) for the development of standard technical specifications (STS) for the AP1000 certified reactor design based on the AP1000 generic technical specifications (GTS).  Each GTST documents the safety basis for proposed improvements to one or more GTS sections that will result in corresponding sections in the AP1000 STS, which will be the subject of a NUREG.  The purpose of the GTSTs is to provide an orderly method of soliciting and processing public comments on proposed enhancements and updates to the GTS and the associated GTS Bases.  Comments are due by September 22, 2014.
