IMC 2561 (Decommissioning Power Reactor Inspection Program) is revised to enhance NRC inspection of decommissioning power reactors. The IMC requires implementation of a core inspection program and provides inspection guidance for the staff. The IMC was also revised to address a recent amendment of the decommissioning regulations (10 CFR 50.82). This revision does not increase the DIE allocation and will be applicable during all phases of decommissioning. SALP is not performed for decommissioning reactors.
