SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A requirement placed upon nuclear power 
reactor licensees by the NRC is that licensees must annually adjust the 
estimate of the cost of decommissioning their plants, in dollars of the 
current year, as part of the process to provide reasonable assurance 
that adequate funds for decommissioning will be available when needed. 
This report, which is revised periodically, explains the formula that 
is acceptable to the NRC for determining the minimum decommissioning 
fund requirements for nuclear power plants. The sources of information 
used in the formula are identified, and the values developed for the 
estimation of radioactive waste burial/disposition costs, by site and 
by year, are given.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 22 day of December.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Director, Division of Policy and Rulemaking, Office of Nuclear Reactor
