The purpose of this NUREG is to provide guidance to the analyst to promote the preparation of quality regulatory and cost-benefit analysis documents and to implement the policies of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. This NUREG provides standardized methods for agency-wide use in the preparation and presentation of regulatory and cost-benefit analyses. Information on the objectives of the safety goal evaluation process and potential data sources for preparing a safety goal evaluation are also included. Consistent application of the methods provided in this guidance will result in more directly comparable analyses, thereby aiding decisionmakers to evaluate and compare various regulatory actions.
