During the 476th meeting of the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards, October 5-7, 2000, the Committee considered a proposed revision to 10 CFR 73.55. The staff presented the fundamental concepts of the proposed revision to the Committee at the 472nd ACRS meeting, May 11-13, 2000. The Committee decided not to review the proposed revision and has no objections to the staff issuing it for public comments. The Committee would like the opportunity to review the proposed final revision after the staff has resolved public comments.
