NUREG-1022, “Event Reporting Guidelines: 10 CFR 50.72 and 50.73,” contains guidelines that the staff of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) considers acceptable for use in meeting the requirements of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 50.72 and 50.73. Several identified reporting issues could not be quickly resolved given certain ambiguities in NUREG-1022, Revision 2 guidance. In developing Revision 3 to NUREG-1022, the NRC held numerous public and internal meetings to solicit stakeholder inputs and feedback. In resolving the ambiguities, the NRC considered the provisions of the rule itself, the associated statements of consideration, and other available guidance in that hierarchal order. Revision 3 to NUREG-1022 revises the event reporting guidelines in order to provide clearer guidance.
