FROM: John T. Larkins, Executive Director
Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards

SUBJECT: PROPOSED FINAL REVISION 4 TO REGULATORY GUIDE 1.101 (DG - 1075), "EMERGENCY PLANNING AND PREPAREDNESS FOR NUCLEAR POWER REACTORS"

During the 465th meeting of the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards, September 1-3, 1999, the Committee considered the proposed final Revision 4 to Regulatory Guide 1.101, which endorses NEI 99-01, "Methodology for Development of Emergency Action Levels," and decided not to review it. The Committee congratulates the staff and industry on their efforts over the last decade that have resulted in the issuance of this guidance. The Committee believes that the addition of guidance for developing emergency action levels for shutdown and refueling modes of plant operations is especially valuable.
