SUBJECT:  NRC WORKSHOP ON THE SYSTEMATIC ASSESSMENT OF LICENSEE PERFORMANCE
          (SALP) PROGRAM - GENERIC LETTER 92-05


The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is announcing its plans to
conduct a workshop on the SALP Program on September 29, 1992.  The workshop
will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza, 1750
Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20850, telephone (301) 468-1100.

The NRC SALP Program is the Agency's integrated effort to collect and evaluate
available agency insights and information in a structured manner to assess and
better understand licensee performance.  The NRC is interested in obtaining
comments from the public and industry on its proposed changes to the SALP
Program.  A copy of the draft Management Directive 8.6, "Systematic Assessment
of Licensee Performance," is enclosed for information only.  Once approved,
Management Directive 8.6 will replace the current program guidance contained
in Manual Chapter 0516, "Systematic Assessment of Licensee Performance."  The
staff will consider comments received during this workshop, and those received
separately, in preparing its final recommendations to the Commission for
changes to the SALP Program.  The NRC published a notice of this workshop in
the Federal Register on August 28, 1992.

The workshop will consist of a plenary session, break-out sessions, and a
summary session.  During the plenary session, NRC representatives will discuss
proposed changes to the SALP Program.  This will be followed by break-out
sessions in which attendees may ask questions about the SALP Program and make
comments or suggestions for improving the SALP Program.  The workshop will
conclude with a session to summarize the issues discussed in each of the
break-out sessions.

Persons planning to attend the workshop should complete a copy of the enclosed
registration form and send it to Mr. Cornelius Holden, M/S 10-A-19, Office of
Nuclear Reactor Regulation, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington,
D.C. 20555.

Interested parties unable to attend this workshop may submit written comments
by September 29, 1992.  Comments received after this date will be considered
if it is practical to do so, but the Commission can ensure consideration only
for comments received on or before this date.  Submit written comments to the
Chief, Rules and Directives Review Branch, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission,
Washington, D.C. 20555.
