This guidance manual provides the NRC staff methodology for calculating parameters for limiting conditions of operation required in the radiological effluent Technical Specifications for light-water-cooled nuclear power plants. It provides guidance in using the model specifications reported in NUREG-0472 (Revision 1)*, and NUREG-0473 (Revision 1)*, applicable to operating PWR and BWR licensees, and users of the Standard Technical Specifications packages available for various vendor designs. The manual addresses the implementation of the Regulations and current NRC Staff positions as related to the radioactive waste management systems, effluent control and radiological monitoring programs and provides equations, references, computer codes, and guidelines pertinent to these limiting conditions for operation.
