The NRC continues to prepare and issue Interim Staff Guidance (ISG)
The purpose of this notice is to notify the public of the availability for review and comments of DIC-ISG-07, “Digital Instrumentation and Control Systems in Safety Applications at Fuel Cycle Facilities,” Revision 0, which provides guidance to NRC staff when performing reviews regarding the use of digital instrumentation and controls in safety applications at fuel cycle facilities. Such reviews would be applicable to new license applications or amendment requests submitted pursuant to 10 CFR Part 70.
Upon receiving public comments, the NRC staff will evaluate the comments and make a determination to incorporate the comments, as appropriate. The NRC staff will incorporate the guidance from the approved ISG into a future revision to the standard review plan governing the performance of fuel cycle facility license application reviews.
Comments may be submitted by September 2, 2009. 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.
You may submit comments by any one of the following methods. Please include Docket ID NRC-2009-0335 in the subject line of your comments. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be posted on the Federal rulemaking Web site Regulations.gov. Because your comments will not be edited to remove any identifying or contact information, the NRC cautions you against including any information in your submission that you do not want to be publicly disclosed.
The NRC requests that any party soliciting or aggregating comments received from other persons for submission to the NRC inform those persons that the NRC will not edit their comments to remove any identifying or contact information, and therefore, they should not include any information in their comments that they do not want publicly disclosed.
