Standard Review Plans (SRP)
The Standard Review Plan for License Renewal (SRP-LR),
NUREG-1800, issued in July 2001, incorporates by reference the
Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL) report, and Regulatory Guide 1.188,
"Standard Format and Content for Applications to Renew Nuclear Power Plant
Operating Licenses." The SRP-LR provides guidance to the NRC staff for
reviewing applications for license renewal. The principle purpose of the
SRP-LR is to assure quality and uniformity of staff reviews and to present
a well-defined base from which to evaluate applicants programs and
activities for the period of extended operation.
Regulatory Guides (RGs)
Regulatory Guide 1.188, "Standard Format and Content for
Applications to Renew Nuclear Power Plant Operating Licenses," issued in
July 2001, endorses the industry license renewal guidance document NEI
95-10, Revision 3.
Technical Reports in the NUREG Series (NUREGs)
NUREG-1412, "Foundation for the Adequacy of the Licensing
Basis," issued in December 1991,describes the regulatory process that
assures that any plant-specific licensing bases will provide reasonable
assurance that the operation of nuclear power plants will not be inimical
to the public health and safety to the end of the renewal period.
NUREG-1437, Supplement 4, "Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants - Edwin I. Hatch Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2," issued in May 2001, documents the NRC staff's review of the environmental issues at Edwin I. Hatch Nuclear Plant in support of Southern Nuclear Operating Company's application for license renewal of Edwin I. Hatch Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2.
Draft NUREG-1437, Supplement 5, "Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants - Turkey Point, Units 3 and 4," completed for review in May 2001, documents the NRC staff's review of the environmental issues at Turkey Point Nuclear Plant in support of Florida Power & Light Company's application for license renewal of Turkey Point Nuclear Plant, Units 3 and 4.
NUREG-1568, "License Renewal Demonstration Program: NRC Observations and Lessons Learned," issued in December 1996, is a summary of NRC staff's observations and lessons learned from nuclear plant site visits performed under the License Renewal Demonstration Program (LRDP). The LRDP was a program established by the NEI to assess the effectiveness of NEI 95-10.
NUREG-1611, "Aging Management of Nuclear Power Plant Containments for License Renewal," issued September 1997, reconciles the technical information and agreements resulting from NUMARC/NRC industry report reviews and the inservice inspection requirements of Subsection IWE and IWL as promulgated in 10 CFR 5.55a for license renewal.
NUREG-1800, "Standard Review Plan for Review of License Renewal Applications for Nuclear Power Plants," issued in July 2001, provides guidance to the NRC staff reviewers in performing safety reviews of applications to renew nuclear power plant licenses in accordance with 10 CFR Part 54.
NUREG-1801, Volumes 1 and 2, "Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL) Report, Summary and Tabulation of Results," issued in July 2001, contains the NRC staff's generic evaluation of the existing plant programs and documents the technical basis for determining where existing programs are adequate without modification and where existing programs should be augmented for the extended period of operation.
NUREG/CR-6490, "Nuclear Power Plant Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL)," Volumes 1 and 2, issued in December 1996, contains the review results of the Nuclear Plant Aging Research Program and related information pertaining to nuclear power plant aging effects and plant impact.
NUREG/CR-6679, "Assessment of Age-Related Degradation of Structures and Passive Components for U.S. Nuclear Power Plants."
OL 805, "License Renewal Application Review Process." This document
describes the basic steps of the license renewal application review
process and the roles and responsibilities of the different staff
organizations involved in a review.
Inspection Procedure 71002, "License Renewal Inspections,"
issued February 3, 1999. This document provides the procedures for
inspecting and verifying the documentation, implementation, and
effectiveness of the programs and activities associated with an
applicant's license renewal program. This procedure will be revised, as
needed, to incorporate lessons learned from the first two license renewal
Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) Guidance
NEI 95-10, Rev. 3, "Industry Guidelines for Implementing the Requirements of 10 CFR Part 54 - The License Renewal Rule," dated March 2001, provides potential applicants with guidelines for identifying the systems, structures, and components with the scope of 10 CFR Part 54 and their functions; identifying structures and components subject to aging management review; assuring that effect of aging are maintained, application of inspections for license renewal; identifying and resolving time-limited aging analyses; and identifying and evaluating exemptions containing time-limited aging analyses.
