               TO ALL PENDING CONSTRUCTION PERMIT APPLICANTS 

Gentlemen: 

SUBJECT: DISCUSSION OF LESSONS LEARNED SHORT TERM REQUIREMENTS 

On October 10, 1979, you received a letter which defined a set of "short 
term" requirements resulting from the NRC staff investigations of the TMI 
accident. Since the letter was issued, the staff has further defined these 
requirements. 

Enclosure 1 provides the additional clarifications of the NRC staff 
requirements as provided to licensees of operating reactors. Enclosure 2 
provides a list of modifications to these clarifications to make them 
applicable to duplicants for operating licenses, applicants for construction
permits and licensees of plants under construction. It should be noted that 
the intent of these requirements and the purpose of our letter of October 
10, 1979 have not changed. 

If you have any questions regarding these actions, please contact the NRC 
Project Manager for your facility. 

                                        Sincerely, 



                                        D. B. Vassallo, Acting Director 
                                        Division of Project Management
