This document provides a revised structure for NUREG-1065, Revision 1, dated 1985, which contains information that the licensee or applicant should provide in its fundamental nuclear material control (FNMC) plan. The revised structure has been patterned after the acceptable standard format and content for the FNMC plan required for low enriched uranium enrichment facilities, NUREG/CR-5734, KIITP-415, dated 1991. That document was structured in a manner to serve as a direct outline for licensees preparation of their FNMC plan while NUREG-1065 was structured to more closely follow and elaborate on the contents of 10 CFR 74.31.

This revised structure for NUREG-1065 continues to implement the requirements of 10 CFR 74.31. It applies to NRC licensees (other than production or utilization facilities licensed pursuant to 10 CFR Part 50 or Part 70 and waste disposal facilities) that are authorized to possess and use more than one effective kilogram of unencapsulated SNM of low strategic significance. Unlike the structure of the enrichment guide, however, this revision for NUREG-1065 includes a complete set of affirmations required from licensees. These are the same affirmations that appeared in Revision 1 of NUREG-1065 but in some instances the language has been modified to clarify intent.

All other modifications involve format and editorial changes designed to provide clarifications and facilitate preparation or revision of the required FNMC plan.
