Gentlemen: 

Subject:  NRC Staff Recommendations Regarding Operator Action for 
          Reactor Trip and ATWS (Generic Letter 83-32) 

     The NRC staff has developed the enclosed "Staff Position on Operator 
Actions for Reactor Trip and ATWS."  The need for the development of a 
position became apparent during discussions with several utilities as a 
result of reactor trip failures.  The attached position is being forwarded 
to you for information as it is being used within the staff for guidance.  
It does not constitute a requirement. 



                               Darrell G. Eisenhut, Director 
                               Division of Licensing 
                               Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation 


Enclosure:  As stated
