United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Protecting People and the Environment

U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission

Question 115: The words, "e.g., containment or

ventilation," have been added to 10 CFR 20.1701. Does this

mean that increased emphasis is being placed on glove bags

to do valve replacements, repacks, etc. at nuclear power


Answer: No. These words were added simply to provide

examples of "process or other engineering controls."

(Reference: 10 CFR 20.1701)
