NRC Issues Draft Regulatory Guide on Subsequent License Renewal Applications

The NRC has issued for public comment a draft regulatory guide (DG), DG-1341, “Standard Format and Content for Applications to Renew Nuclear Power Plant Operating Licenses.” DG-1341 describes the standard format and content the NRC considers for renewal and subsequent license renewal applications. DG-1341 is proposed Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 1.188 and broadens the scope of the guide to include subsequent license renewal. Specifically, DG-1341 endorses Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) 17-01, “Industry Guideline for Implementing the Requirements of 10 CFR Part 54 for Subsequent License Renewal,” which provides an acceptable approach for subsequent license renewal applications. Comments are due by October 17, 2019.
