Standard Review Plans and Associated Review Standards
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has a number of standard review plans (SRPs) for staff use in reviewing proposed licensing actions. These actions may relate to constructing, operating, or decommissioning a nuclear facility or possessing, using, storing, or transporting nuclear materials or waste.
For nuclear power plants, the NRC has a comprehensive standard review plan (NUREG-0800). For other types of licensing actions, the NRC has developed review standards as adjuncts to NUREG-0800 for staff use in reviewing licensing applications for early site permits and power uprates. These review standards reference sections of either NUREG-0800 or the "Standard Review Plan for Environmental Reviews for Nuclear Power Plants" (NUREG-1555). If either of those publications lacks information on a new topic to be reviewed, the staff adds a new section for the topic.
