LR-ISG Process

The NRC staff develops LR-ISGs in accordance with the LR-ISG Process, Revision 2, for which a notice of availability was published in the Federal Register on June 22, 2010 (75 FR 35510). This process describes the basic framework for developing and implementing LR-ISGs, and it was developed with input from stakeholders. Under the process, the NRC staff may evaluate proposed changes to certain license renewal guidance documents and then, if warranted, implement a guidance document change through issuance of an LR-ISG. The NRC staff or stakeholders may propose changes to certain license renewal guidance documents. The process provides for interactions with stakeholders during LR-ISG development and the NRC staff provides the opportunity for public comment on each proposed LR-ISG through notices published in the Federal Register.
