Introduction

A draft of NUREG-1251, "Implications of the Accident at Chernobyl for Safety Regulation of Commercial Nuclear Power Plants in the United States," was issued for public comment in September 1987. A notice of the issuance of the report was published in the Federal Register (52 FR 33304-5) on September 2, 1987. The comments received, together with further work by the NRC staff, were taken into account in preparing the final version of the report. This appendix contains the comments received and the NRC staff's response to significant issues raised in-the comments, including the nature and basis of the resulting changes to the draft report.

Federal Emergency Management Agency staff reviewed a draft of Chapter 4, "Emergency Planning," and contributed comments and suggestions based on that review. These were taken into account by the NRC staff.
