On May 22, 2012 (77 FR 30335), the NRC published for public comment the proposed Revision 3 to Section 19.1, “Determining the Technical Adequacy of Probabilistic Risk Assessment for Risk-Informed License Amendment Requests After Initial Fuel Load” (ADAMS Accession No. ML112990771). There were no comments received on the proposed revision. Hence the guidance is being issued final for use without any changes to the proposed guidance. The NRC staff will also incorporate Revision 3 of SRP Section 19.1 into the next revisions of Regulatory Guide 1.206, “Combined License Applications for Nuclear Power Plants” (ADAMS Accession No. ML070720184).
In accordance with the Congressional Review Act, the NRC has determined that this action is not a major rule and has verified this determination with the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs of the Office of Management and Budget.
