Office of New Reactors; Proposed Revision to Standard Review 
Plan, Section 14.3.12 on Physical Security Hardware Inspections, Tests, 
Analyses, and Acceptance Criteria

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

ACTION: Solicitation of public comment.


SUMMARY: The NRC is soliciting public comment on NUREG-0800, ``Standard 
Review Plan for the Review of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power 
Plants,'' on a proposed Revision 1 to Standard Review Plan (SRP), 
Section 14.3.12 on ``Physical Security Hardware--Inspections, Tests, 
Analyses, and Acceptance Criteria,'' (Agencywide Documents Access and 
Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML093080140). The Office of 
Nuclear Security and Incident Response (NSIR) is revising SRP Section 
14.3.12 (Enclosure 1), which updates the initial issuance of this 
section, dated March 2007, to reflect the changes of the recently 
issued Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 73, Power 
Reactor Security Rule (published in the Federal Register (FR) on March 
27, 2009 (74 FR 13926)). The previous version of this SRP section was 
published in March 2007 as an initial issuance (ADAMS Accession No. 
ML070660628). A redline version tracking the proposed changes under 
this revision (Revision 1) can be found at ADAMS Accession No. 
    The NRC staff issues notices to facilitate timely implementation of 
the current staff guidance and to facilitate activities associated with 
the review of amendment applications and review of design certification 
(DC) and combined license (COL) applications for the Office of New 
Reactors (NRO). The NRC staff intends to incorporate the final approved 
guidance into the next revision of NUREG-0800, SRP Section 14.3.12 and 
Regulatory Guide 1.206, ``Combined License Applications for Nuclear 
Power Plants (LWR Edition),'' June 2007.
