Draft Commission Paper ``Emergency Planning Under 10 CFR Part 

    This notice announces the availability for comment of draft 
Commission paper, ``Emergency Planning Under 10 CFR part 52.'' The 
paper discusses the staff's views on how emergency planning 
requirements will be addressed at each phase of nuclear power plant 
licensing under 10 CFR part 52: Early site permits, standard design 
certifications, and combined licenses.
    For early site permit applications, NRC and Federal Emergency 
management Agency (FEMA) staffs have jointly developed criteria in a 
proposed supplement to NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1, ``Criteria for 
Preparation and Evaluation of Radiological Emergency Response Plans and 
Preparedness in Support of Nuclear Power Plants.'' The proposed 
supplement, containing guidance for writing, reviewing, and approving 
emergency plans and information to be submitted with an early site 
permit application, will be issued separately for public comment before 
its final publication.
    For standard design certifications, the NRC staff has identified 
inspections, tests, analyses, and acceptance criteria (TAAC) pertinent 
to the emergency response facilities that are applicable to standard 
designs. With regard to combined licenses, the principle issues involve 
the form and role of ITAAC and the treatment of preoperational 
emergency preparedness exercises. An application for a combined license 
must include proposed ITAAC including those applicable to emergency 
preparedness. The emergency preparedness exercise, which is to be 
conducted prior to authorization for full power operation, will be 
included in the ITAAC.
    Any interested party may submit comments on this draft Commission 
paper for consideration by the staff. To be certain of consideration, 
comments must be received within 90 days of the date of this Federal 
Register notice and should be sent to the contact indicated below. 
Comments received after this date will be considered to the extent 
    A copy of the draft Commission paper has been placed in the NRC
