Status of Subsequent License Renewal Applications

On this page:


The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff has defined subsequent license renewal (SLR) to be the period of extended operation from 60 years to 80 years. The Generic Aging Lessons Learned for Subsequent License Renewal (GALL-SLR) Report is the NRC staff's generic evaluation of plant aging management programs and provides guidance for SLR applicants. The GALL-SLR Report establishes the technical basis for the adequacy of applicant aging management programs that are found to be consistent with its guidance.

The Standard Review Plan for Review of Subsequent License Renewal Applications for Nuclear Power Plants (SRP-SLR) provides guidance to NRC staff reviewers in the review of a subsequent license renewal application (SLRA). The SRP-SLR assists reviewers in verifying that the applicant has met the requirements of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 54, "Requirements for Renewal of Operating Licenses for Nuclear Power Plants." The SRP-SLR ensures the quality and uniformity of NRC staff reviews and establishes a well-defined base from which to evaluate applicant programs and activities for the subsequent period of extended operation.

The GALL-SLR Report and SRP-SLR were issued as NUREG-2192 and NUREG-2191, respectively, in July 2017.
