Nuclear Regulatory Commission
DOCUMENT ACTION: Solicitation of public comment.
Office of New Reactors; Interim Staff Guidance on the Necessary Content of Plant-Specific Technical Specifications for a Combined License
DATES: Comments must be filed no later than 30 days from the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Comments received after this date will be considered, if it is practical to do so, but the Commission is able to ensure consideration only for comments received on or before this date.
The NRC is soliciting public comment on its proposed Interim Staff Guidance (ISG) DC/COLISG08 (ADAMS Accession No. ML082520707). The purpose of this ISG is to change the NRC staff position on the necessary content of plantspecific technical specifications (PTS) when a combined license (COL) is issued. This ISG clarifies the staff guidance contained in Regulatory Guide (RG) 1.206, ``Combined License Applications for Nuclear Power Plants,'' Section C.III.4.3, ``Combined License Information Items That Cannot Be Resolved Before the Issuance of a License,'' and replaces the related guidance in NUREG0080, ``Standard Review Plan for the Review of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power Plants,'' Chapter 16.0, ``Technical Specifications,'' Revision 2, dated March 2007, regarding the content of PTS to support issuing a COL. The NRC staff issues DC/COLISGs to facilitate timely implementation of the current staff guidance and to facilitate activities associated with the review of applications for standard design certifications (DCs) and COLs by the Office of New Reactors. The NRC staff will also incorporate the approved DC/COLISG08 into the next revisions of RG 1.206 and the Standard Review Plan 16.0, and any related guidance documents.
Plant-Specific Technical Specifications for a Combined License; Interim Staff Guidance on the Necessary Content,
The agency posts its issued staff guidance in the agency external Web page (http://www.nrc.gov/readingrm/doc collections/isg/).

Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 8th day of October 2008.
