The revision updates the Revision 1 July 1981 version of NUREG-0800, Chapter 12, section 12.5, Operational Radiation Protection Program, to the Standard Review Plan for the Review of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power Plants. The changes consist mostly of revising the references to 10 CFR 20; assigning different responsibilities to the primary and secondary branches because of office reorganizations; editorial and formatting changes as part of the SRP update effort; and updating the references to several guidance documents and industry standards. The revision also adds standard paragraphs to extend application of the updated SRP section to the design certification reviews as well as to extend implementation of this section to submittals by applicants pursuant to 10 CFR Part 50 or 10 CFR Part 52.
