Availability Notice


This NUREG contains the improved Standard Technical Specifications (STS) for General
Electric Boiling Water Reactor/4 (BWR/4) plants. The changes reflected in Revision 5 result
from the experience gained from plant operation using the improved STS and extensive public
technical meetings and discussions among the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff and
various nuclear power plant licensees and the Nuclear Steam Supply System (NSSS) Owners
The improved STS were developed based on the criteria in the Final Commission Policy
Statement on Technical Specifications Improvements for Nuclear Power Reactors, dated
July 22, 1993 (58 FR 39132), which was subsequently codified by changes to Section 36 of Part
50 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 50.36) (60 FR 36953). Licensees are
encouraged to upgrade their technical specifications consistent with those criteria and
conforming, to the practical extent, to Revision 5 to the improved STS. The Commission
continues to place the highest priority on requests for complete conversions to the improved
STS. Licensees adopting portions of the improved STS to existing technical specifications
should adopt all related requirements, as applicable, to achieve a high degree of standardization
and consistency.
