Two subcommittees of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS) will meet May 26 and 27 in Rockville, Maryland.

The subcommittee on thermal-hydraulic phenomena will meet on May 26. It will review the following topics:

  • The proposed resolution of generic safety issue 23, "reactor coolant pump seal failures;"
  • The proposed rule to revise Appendix K to 10 CFR50.46 to allow small, cost beneficial power uprates; and
  • The status of the Electrical Power Research Institute RETRAN-3D transient thermal-hydraulic code review and proposed ACRS structure discussion on development of code review guidelines.

The subcommittee on severe accident management, meeting on May 27, will review the application by the Southern California Edison Company for an exemption to the hydrogen control requirements for the San Onofre Nuclear Plant.

Both meetings will begin at 8:30 a.m. in room T-2B3 of the agency's Two White Flint North Building at 11545 Rockville Pike.

Those seeking information on whether the meeting has been canceled or rescheduled may contact Paul A. Boehnert at (301) 415-8065.

Other aspects of the meeting, including opportunities for comment, will be described in a forthcoming edition of the Federal Register.
