Standard Review Plan for Review of LR Applications for Nuclear Power 
Plants, Rev. 1

    The NRC staff revised the July 2001 version of NUREG-1800, 
``Standard Review Plan for Review of License Renewal Applications for 
Nuclear Power Plants'' (SRP-LR). The SRP-LR provides guidance to NRC 
staff reviewers in performing safety reviews of applications to renew 
licenses of nuclear power plants in accordance with the license renewal 
rule. The SRP-LR, Revision 1, is under ADAMS Accession number 
ML052110007. The SRP-LR is revised to incorporate lessons learned from 
the review of a number of previous license renewal applications, as 
well as to make changes corresponding to the update of the GALL Report. 
The SRP-LR, Revision 1, contains four major chapters: (1) 
Administrative Information; (2) Scoping and Screening Methodology for 
Identifying Structures and Components Subject to Aging Management 
Review, and Implementation Results; (3) Aging Management Review 
Results; and (4) Time-Limited Aging Analyses. In addition, three Branch 
Technical Positions are in an Appendix to the SRP-LR, Revision 1.

Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL) Report, Revision 1

    The Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL) Report, Revision 1, is an 
update to the July 2001 version; the report format is largely 
unchanged. The GALL Report, Revision 1, Volumes 1 and 2, are available 
under ADAMS Accession number ML052110005 and ML052110006, respectively. 
The adequacy of the generic aging management programs in managing 
certain aging effects for particular structures and components will 
continue to be evaluated based on the review of the following ten 
program elements: (1) Scope of program; (2) preventive actions; (3) 
parameters monitored or inspected; (4) detection of aging effects; (5) 
monitoring and trending; (6) acceptance criteria; (7) corrective 
actions; (8) confirmation process; (9) administrative controls; and 
(10) operating experience. The GALL Report is a technical basis 
document for the SRP-LR and should be treated in the same manner as an 
approved topical report that is applicable generically.

Analysis of Public Comments on the Revised LR Guidance Documents

    On February 1, 2005, the NRC announced (70 FR 5254) the issuance 
for public comment and availability a draft of ``Standard Review Plan 
for Review of License Renewal Applications for Nuclear Power Plants' 
and a draft ``Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL) Report.'' The NRC 
also announced a public workshop that was held on March 2, 2005, to 
facilitate gathering public comment on the draft documents. NUREG-1832 
contains the NRC response to stakeholders' comments. The dispositions 
are prepared in a table format and contained in five appendices. 
Appendix A addresses the specific written comments submitted by the 
Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI), Appendix B addresses the comments from 
the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS), Appendix C 
addresses the participant comments from the license renewal public 
workshop on March 2, 2005, Appendix D addresses the written comments 
submitted by other public stakeholders, and Appendix E provides a 
comparison of the aging management review line items from the January 
2005 GALL Report to the September 2005 GALL Report.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 27th day of September, 2005.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Acting Program Director, License Renewal and Environmental Impacts 
Program, Division of Regulatory Improvement Programs, Office of Nuclear 
Reactor Regulation.
