On February 19, 2020 (85 FR 9487), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published a notice in the federal register requesting comment on issuing draft regulatory guide (DG), DG-3036, “Standard Format and Content of License Applications for Receipt and Storage of Unirradiated Power Reactor Fuel and Associated Radioactive Material at a Nuclear Power Plant.” This proposed Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide (RG) 3.15 describes the standard format and content that the NRC staff considers acceptable for license applications to authorize the receipt, possession, and storage of unirradiated fuel assemblies and associated radioactive materials at a nuclear power plant. The revision of the guide (revision 2) will update references and reflect experience gained in licensing, operation, and subsequent decommissioning of unirradiated power reactor fuel storage sites since the guide was originally issued in April 1983. Please submit comments by April 20, 2020. Comments received after this date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but the NRC is able to ensure consideration only for comments received on or before this date. Although a time limit is given for public comment, comments and suggestions in connection with items for inclusion in RGs currently being developed or improvements in all published RGs are encouraged at any time.
