SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing Draft Revision 
1A to NUREG-1536, ``Standard Review Plan for Spent Fuel Dry Storage 
Systems at a General License Facility.'' Its previous title, ``Standard 
Review Plan for Dry Cask Storage Systems,'' has been changed to better 
reflect its applicability. This revision incorporates Interim Staff 
Guidance (ISG) documents 1 through 22, as applicable, as well as other 
current NRC staff practices (e.g., addition of a materials chapter) 
utilized in its review of licensee integrated safety analyses, license 
applications or amendment requests, or other related licensing 
activities for dry storage systems under 10 CFR Part 72. Additionally, 
the guidance contained in the Review Procedures section of each chapter 
of the subject document has been risk-informed to assist the NRC staff 
in prioritizing its review with respect to relative level of effort, 
and to increase efficiency.
    The purpose of this notice is to provide the public with an 
opportunity to review and solicit comments on the Draft NUREG-1536, 
Revision 1A, ``Standard Review Plan for Spent Fuel Dry Storage Systems 
at a General License Facility.'' These comments will be considered in 
the final version or subsequent revisions.
