Publication Information

Environmental Standard Review Plans (ESRPs) are prepared for the guidance of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation staff responsible for environmental reviews for nuclear power plant. These documents are made available to the public as part of the Commission's policy to inform the nuclear industry and the general public of regulatory procedures and policies. ESRPs are not substitutes for regulatory guides or the Commission's regulations, and compliance with them is not required. The ESRPs are keyed to preparation of Environmental Reports for Nuclear Power Stations.

Published ESRPs will be revised periodically, as appropriate, to accommodate comments and to reflect new information and experience. Comments and suggestions for improvement will be considered and should be sent to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation, Washington, DC 20555-0001.
