The NRC has issued an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) seeking input on the development of a regulatory basis to support modifications to NRC regulations in 10 CFR Part 50, Appendix I, governing radioactive effluents from nuclear plants.  The NRC is seeking stakeholder input on select questions and issues identified in the ANPR; in particular, the staff seeks to better align NRC regulations with updated terminology and methodology published by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (IRCP).  To view specific issues and questions raised by the staff, view the full Federal Register entry below.  Comments on the ANPR are due by September 1, 2015.
