This report contains the staff's analysis of the comments received on the draft license renewal guidance (LRG) documents. These LRG documents consist of:
- Draft Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL) Report (NUREG-1801), Revision 1;
- Draft Standard Review Plan for License Renewal (NUREG-1800), Revision 1; and
- Draft Regulatory Guide DG-1104, "Standard Format and Content for Applications to Renew Nuclear Power Plant Operating Licenses.";
The staff proposed to update these LRG documents, which were previously published in 2001 (each of which is referred to as Revision 0). The draft revisions of these LRG documents were issued for public comment on February 1, 2005 (70 FR 5254).
The staff's analysis of these comments is presented in a tabular format and contained in the following appendices:
- Appendix A addresses comments submitted by NEI;
- Appendix B addresses comments from the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safety;
- Appendix C addresses comments from the participants at the license renewal public workshop held on March 2, 2005;
- Appendix D addresses comments submitted by various stakeholders, such as the Union of Concerned Scientists, utilities, and private citizens; and
- Appendix E is a comparison of unique aging management review (AMR) line-items in the September 2005 revision of the GALL Report, to that presented in the January 2005 Draft Revision of the GALL Report issued for public comment.
No comments were received on DG-1140, "Standard Format and Content for Applications to Renew Nuclear Power Plant Operating Licenses," dated January 2005.
The September 2005 version of these LRG documents (referred to as Revision 1) incorporated changes to the draft revision based on the information contained in this report.
