Draft Regulatory Guide; Issuance, Availability

    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has issued for public comment a 
draft of a guide planned for its Regulatory Guide Series. This series 
has been developed to describe and make available to the public such 
information as methods acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing 
specific parts of the Commission's regulations, techniques used by the 
staff in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data 
needed by the staff in its review of applications for permits and 
    The draft guide, temporarily identified by its task number, DG-1071 
(which should be mentioned in all correspondence concerning this draft 
guide), is titled ``Standard Format and Content for Post-Shutdown 
Decommissioning Activities Report.'' The guide is intended for Division 
1, ``Power Reactors.'' This draft guide is being developed to describe 
the information that should be provided in the Post-Shutdown 
Decommissioning Activities Report (PSDAR) before major decommissioning 
activities are begun on a nuclear power reactor. The guide also 
suggests a standard format for the PSDAR.
    The draft guide has not received complete staff review and does not 
represent an official NRC staff position.
    Public comments are being solicited on Draft Regulatory Guide DG-
1071. Comments may be accompanied by additional relevant information or 
supporting data. Written comments may be submitted to the Rules and 
Directives Branch, Office of Administration, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission, Washington, DC 20555. Copies of comments received may be
