Abstract

This Standard Review Plan (SRP) for decommissioning cost estimates provides guidance to Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation (NRR) and Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards (NMSS) staff on how to evaluate each of the decommissioning cost estimates that are required to be provided by the power reactor licensees. The SRP includes guidance on evaluating decommissioning costs for both pressurized water reactors (PWRs) and boiling water reactors (BWRs). The SRP is divided into sections that are keyed to the sections in Regulatory Guide-1085, "Standard Format and Content of Decommissioning Cost Estimates for Nuclear Power Reactors," which was developed to provide guidance to licensees on decommissioning cost estimates. Each section of this NUREG is a separate SRP and presents the areas of review, acceptance criteria, review procedures, and evaluation findings for each of the decommissioning cost estimates required by 10 CFR 50.75 and 10 CFR 50.82.
