Question 20: Pertaining to Question 19, will 10 CFR 50

Appendix I and Technical Specifications have to be modified

to reflect a total effective dose equivalent (TEDE)?

Answer: Appendix I, and the corresponding Technical

Specifications, will not have to be modified as a result of

the revised Part 20; however, the staff is considering

whether Appendix I design objectives need to be recast as

effective dose equivalent. (References: 10 CFR 50

Appendix I, Reactor Technical Specifications)
