AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

[[Page 12087]]

ACTION: Notice of availability.


SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing its 
final Revision 4 to NUREG-0800, ``Standard Review Plan for the Review 
of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power Plants,'' Standard Review 
Plan (SRP) Section 8.1 on ``Electric Power--Introduction,'' (Agencywide 
Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. 
ML113640121), and the Branch Technical Position (BTP) 8-8 (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML113640138). The NRC staff issues revisions to SRP 
sections to facilitate timely implementation of the current staff 
guidance and to facilitate reviews to amendments to licenses for 
operating reactors or for activities associated with review of 
applications for early site permits and combined licenses for the 
Office of New Reactors. The NRC staff will also incorporate Revision 4 
of SRP Section 8.1 into the next revisions of the Regulatory Guide 
1.206, ``Combined License Applications for Nuclear Power Plants,'' and 
related guidance documents.
    Disposition: On May 31, 2011 (76 FR 31381), the NRC published for 
public comment the proposed Revision 4 on Section 8.1 on ``Electric 
Power--Introduction,'' (ADAMS Accession No. ML111180542) and the 
companion BTP 8-8 (ADAMS Accession No. ML111180521). There were two 
comments received on the proposed revision (ADAMS Accession Nos. 
ML11172A125 and ML11180A204). These comments were incorporated as 
appropriate and the details of disposition of the stakeholder's 
comments are available under (ADAMS Accession No. ML113640144). The 
Redline version that shows the difference between the proposed notice 
and current is also made public (ADAMS Accession No.ML113640140).
    Congressional Review Act: In accordance with the Congressional 
Review Act, the NRC has determined that this action is not a major rule 
and has verified this determination with the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs of the Office of Management and Budget.
