SUBJECT: POST-TMI REQUIREMENTS (Generic Letter No. 82-05) 

On October 30, 1980, the NRC staff sent to you NUREG-0737 which incorporated
into one document the TMI-related items that were approved by the Commission
for implementation at operating reactors. Licensees have implemented and the
Commission has confirmed by Order those requirements that were scheduled for
completion by June 30, 1981. For those items that were scheduled to be 
implemented between July 1, 1981 and March 1, 1982, licensee responses 
propose numerous delays in implementation. Some licensees provided 
information that would incorporate into an integrated plan, keyed to 
scheduled plant outages, a plan for satisfying all the post-TMI 
requirements. Our review of supplemental responses indicate that licensee 
commitments and proposed schedules change frequently. 

Enclosure 1 identifies those items for which a firm schedule needs to be, 
established or if a schedule has previously been submitted, a reconfirmation
of such dates. Certain items, scheduled in NUREG-0737 to be implemented 
between July 1, 1981 and March 1, 1982, are not included since (1) the 
scheduled date has been specified by rulemaking or separate Commission 
action, (2) licensee submittals have been received and are under review, or 
(3) the item is complete for all applicable plants. These items are 
identified in Enclosure 2. 

Accordingly, pursuant to SS50.54(f) of the NRC Regulations, licensees of 
operating power reactors are requested to furnish the following information 
within 30 days of the date of this letter: 

(1)  For applicable items in Enclosure 1 that have been completed confirm 
     their completion and furnish the date on which they were completed. 

(2)  For applicable items in Enclosure 1 that have not been completed, 
     propose a firm specific schedule for implementation. In those cases 
     where a licensee's schedule is beyond the schedules shown in 
     NUREG-0737, provide: 


                                  - 2 -                       MAR 17, 1982 

     (a)  justification for proposed schedule, 
     (b)  demonstration of need for proposed schedule, and 
     (c)  description of compensatory measures being taken in the interim. 

This request for information was approved by the Office of Management and 
Budget under clearance number 3150-0065 which expires May 31, 1983. Comments
on burden and duplication may be directed to the Office of Management and 
Budget, Reports Management Room 3208, New Executive Office Building, 
Washington, D.C. 20503.
