Proposed Revision of the NRC Enforcement Policy

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Policy Statement: notification of proposed revision.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering a
revision to its General Statement of Policy and Procedure for NRC
Enforcement Actions (NUREG-1600) (Enforcement Policy or Policy). This
proposed revision primarily clarifies the guidance in Section VIII,
``Enforcement Actions Involving Individuals.'' The intent of the
revision is to more clearly identify the thresholds and outcomes for
taking enforcement actions that involve individuals. The proposed
revision is available for review on the Office of Enforcement's
``Public Participation'' page of its website (http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/leaving.cgi?from=leavingFR.html&log=linklog&to=http://www.nrc.gov/OE/).

DATES: The proposed policy revision will be available for review until
April 22, 2001.
