Availability Notice


NUREG-1022, Revision 3, "Event Reporting Guidelines: 10 CFR 50.72 and 50.73," contains guidelines that the staff of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) considers acceptable for use in meeting the requirements of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Sections 50.72 and 50.73. Section 3.2.13, "Loss of Emergency Preparedness Capabilities," of NUREG-1022, Revision 3, contains guidance for reporting under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(xiii). 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(xiii) requires reports for a major loss of emergency assessment capability, offsite response capability, or communications capability. Much of the guidance found in Section 3.2.13 of NUREG-1022, Revision 3, is subject to engineering judgment. This supplement to NUREG-1022, Revision 3, endorses Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) 13-01, "Reportable Action Levels for Loss of Emergency Preparedness Capabilities," dated October 2013. NEI 13-01 provides specific guidance for reporting under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(xiii), and as a result, reduces the need for engineering judgment. Guidance found in NEI 13-01 dated October 2013 provides for an acceptable alternative to guidance found in Section 3.2.13 of NUREG-1022, Revision 3.
