These enclosures are: 1. Draft NRC Manual Chapter-0514, NRC Program for Management of Plant- Specific Backfitting of Operating Reactors. The manual chapter identifies the general coverage, objectives, responsibilities and authorities, and. basic requirements of plant- specific backfitting. Subchapters 031 and 032 are particularly important. 2. Procedure for Management of Plant-Specific Backfitting of Operating Reactors Resulting from Licensing Activities. This procedure was developed to fulfill the intent of Subchapter 031 of Chapter 0514 identified above. Backfitting issues which arise from NRR will follow these interim procedures. 3. Procedure for Management of Plant-Specific Backfitting of Operating Power Reactors Resulting from Inspection and Enforcement Activities. This procedure was developed to fulfill the intent of Subchapter 032 of Chapter 0514 identified above. Backfitting issues which arise from IE will follow these interim procedures. The plan for managing plant-specific backfitting for OL applicants and CP holders will follow the procedures for operating reactors until final procedures are developed.
