REMARKS:

IP 40500 (Effectiveness of Licensee Controls in Identifying, Resolving, and Preventing Problems) is revised to implement a recommendation from the PIPB audit of IP 40500 to clarify the inspection procedure objective as a comprehensive review of the licensee's ability to identify, correct, and prevent problems. Because of the fundamental importance of the NRC's evaluation of licensee self-assessment, this inspection must be conducted as a systematic and comprehensive inspection that considers, in part, the results of other inspections performed over the previous 12-24 months.

IP 87100 (Licensed Materials Programs)

IP 87100, App B (Nuclear Medicine Inspection Field Notes)

IP 87100, App D (Industrial Radiography Inspection Field Notes)

IP 87100, App H (Radiopharmacy Inspection Field Notes)

The procedure and listed appendices were revised to include inspection guidance on the new constraint rule on air emissions (10 CFR 20.1101), patient release (10 CFR 35.75), and ancillary radiography equipment (10 CFR 34.20).

IP 87110 (Industrial/Academic/Research Programs)

IP 87110, Appendix A (Industrial Academic/Research Inspection Field Notes)

The above inspection procedure and appendix have been revised to include inspection guidance on the new constraint rule on air emissions (10 CFR 20.1101).

TI 2515/095 (Inspection For Verification of BWR Recirculation Pump Trip - Multi-Plant Action Item C-02) is deleted. The inspection requirements identified in this TI have been completed.

TI 2515/096 (Inspection Verification of Mark I BWR Drywell Vacuum Breaker Modifications - Multi-Plant Action Item D-20) is deleted. The inspection requirements identified in this TI have been completed.

9900 Technical Guidance - STS (Licensee Technical Specifications Interpretations) is issued to provide guidance to the inspection staff on technical specification (TS) interpretations. Recent observations of licensee TS interpretations and some particular practices concerning their implementation have highlighted the need for staff clarification and guidance on this subject.
