SUBJECT:  PROBLEMS WITH THE SUBMITTALS OF 10 CFR 73-21 SAFEGUARDS 
          INFORMATION FOR LICENSING REVIEW (GENERIC LETTER NO. 82-39) 

Recent experience with submittals of safeguards information has indicated a 
number of docketing and distribution  problems which create unnecessary 
delays in the processing of the information and make maintaining proper 
records of such correspondence very cumbersome. Therefore, it is requested 
that upon receipt of this letter, you follow the actions described below for
all future transmittals involving safeguards information. 

(1)  In order to be properly docketed, the letter transmitting safeguards 
     information must itself not contain safeguards information; the 
     safeguards information must be provided in an attachment. 

(2)  The transmittal letter must be clearly marked "Safeguards Information" 
     and must contain the following wording at the side or bottom of the 
     page: "When separated from Enclosures, Handle this Document as 
     Decontrolled". This marking will allow the transmittal letter to be 
     entered into NRC"s Document Control System, Thereby, assuring that a 
     proper record is established. 

(3)  NRC"s Records Services Branch is no longer authorized to reproduce 
     safeguards information and, therefore, cannot process those submittals 
     lacking the required number of copies. Therefore, six (6) copies of 
     safeguards information should be submitted. 

(4)  In order to assure proper docketing and compliance with the 
     requirements of 10 CFR 73.21, safeguards information should be 
     addressed to the Director, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation, 
     Attention: Document Control Desk, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, 
     Washington, D.C. 20555.
