The U. S. EPA Uranium Fuel Cycle Standard (40 CFR 190) went into effect for nuclear power facilities on December 1, 1979. This document presents the model technical specifications that implement 40 CFR Part 190 and Appendix I to 10 CFR Part 50, explains the rationale for using Appendix I as a basis for demonstrating compliance with 40 CFR Part 190 for sites with four or less reactors, and describes methods for establishing compliance with 40 CFR Part 190 for sites with radioactive effluents exceeding the Appendix I design objectives or sites with significant direct radiation dose rates (> 5 mrem/yr).
