Subject: Issuance of RIS 2000-18

NRC Regulatory Issue Summary 2000-18, Guidance on Managing Quality
Assurance Records in Electronic Media dated October 23, 2000

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued this regulatory issue
summary (RIS) to provide guidance on managing quality assurance (QA)
records in electronic media. This RIS does not supersede or revise
existing guidance or abrogate the guidance in Regulatory Guide (RG) 1.88,
Revision 2, or RG 1.28, Revision 3.  It does not provide guidance on
submitting electronic records to the NRC as required by Section 50.4(c)
of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 50.4(c)).

The guidance in this RIS is intended to provide, for those licensees with
QA programs, a way to satisfy the requirements for the maintenance of QA
records. However, the guidance can also be applied to the record keeping
and maintenance requirements present in other parts of the regulations
that specify that storing records in the form of electronic media is
acceptable.

This RIS does not create any new or changed NRC requirements or staff
positions, and it requires no specific action or written response. Any
action on the part of addressees to use electronic media for managing QA
records is strictly voluntary.

Subject: Issuance of RIS 2000-19

NRC Regulatory Issue Summary 2000-19, Partial Release of Reactor Site for
Unrestricted Use Before NRC Approval of the License Termination Plan
Dated October 24, 2000

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing this regulatory
issue summary (RIS) to inform addressees of (1) pending rulemaking action
to standardize the process for allowing a licensee of an operating
facility, or a facility which has entered into decommissioning, to
release part of its reactor facility or site for unrestricted use before
receiving NRC approval of its license termination plan (LTP) ("partial
site release") and (2) the staff's plans for handling requests for
partial site releases until rulemaking on the subject can be completed.
