I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) is 
issuing a revision of a guide in the agency's ``Regulatory Guide'' 
series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the 
public information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff 
for implementing specific parts of the agency's regulations, techniques 
that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated 
accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications 
for permits and licenses.
    Revision 1 of RG 1.62, ``Manual Initiation of Protective Actions,'' 
was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, 
DG-1190. This regulatory guide applies to operating power reactors 
licensed in accordance with title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
part 50, ``Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization 
Facilities'' (10 CFR part 50), and with 10 CFR part 52, ``Licenses, 
Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants.'' New 
applicants should consider this guidance in preparing an application 
for a combined license under 10 CFR part 52.

II. Further Information

    In December, DG-1190 was published for public comment. The staff's 
responses to the public comments received are located in the NRC's 
Agencywide Documents Access and Management System under Accession 
Number ML092580016. The regulatory analysis may be found in ADAMS under 
Accession No. ML101540348. Electronic copies of RG 1.62 are available 
through the NRC's public Web site under ``Regulatory Guides'' at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/.
    In addition, regulatory guides are available for inspection at the 
NRC's Public Document Room (PDR) located at 11555 Rockville Pike, 
Rockville, Maryland. The PDR's mailing address is USNRC PDR, 
Washington, DC 20555-0001. The PDR can also be reached by telephone at 
(301) 415-4737 or (800) 397-4205, by fax at (301) 415-3548, and by e-
mail to [email protected].
    Regulatory guides are not copyrighted, and Commission approval is 
not required to reproduce them.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 17th day of June 2010.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
