Future Submittals of Applications:
Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) -- Industry representatives also participate in working groups and technical committees, coordinated by the Nuclear Energy Institute, to address generic technical and process issues, and to develop additional guidance related to scoping and aging management programs. The NRC has established a formal feedback process by which the resolution of the generic renewal issues and lessons learned during the review of the initial renewal applications is documented and included in revisions to the implementation guidance. These activities are expected to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of future license renewal reviews.
