NRC Regulatory Issue Summary 2002-18, Issuance of Orders Imposing
Additional Physical Protection Measures for the Transportation of Spent
Nuclear Fuel Greater Than 100 Grams dated October 3, 2002

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is issuing this regulatory issue
summary to inform addressees of the issuance of Orders to selected
licensees requiring implementation of interim compensatory measures
(ICMs) concerning the physical protection of shipments of irradiated
reactor fuel (i.e., spent nuclear fuel). These physical protection
measures are intended to supplement the current physical protection and
advance notification requirements in 10 CFR 73.37 and 73.72, during the
current threat environment.

Subject: Issuance of Regulatory Issue Summary 2002-12I, Revision 1

NRC Regulatory Issue Summary 2002-12I, Revision 1: Transportation of
Spent Nuclear Fuel Greater Than 100 Grams -- NRC Threat Advisory and
Protective Measures System dated October 3, 2002

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is issuing Revision 1 to
Regulatory Issue Summary (RIS) 2002-12I, "Transportation of Spent Nuclear
Fuel Greater than 100 Grams NRC Threat Advisory and Protective Measures
System," dated August 19, 2002, to inform addressees of changes to the
threat advisory conditions and protective measures system for their use
in preplanning graded protective measures to respond to changes in the
threat environment. Revision 1 supersedes RIS 2002-12I in its entirety.
The NRC uses a RIS to communicate with the nuclear industry and other
stakeholders on a variety of matters for which no response or action is
required. However, this RIS communicates actions the NRC considers
appropriate at each threat level. In the interest of expediency, the
Commission has determined that a RIS is the most efficient mechanism to
align the Office of Homeland Security, NRC, and licensee expectations
with respect to licensees' response to threat advisories.
