Availability Notice


This Standard Review Plan (SRP) (NUREG-1718) provides guidance to the NRC staff reviewers in the Office of the Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards who will perform safety, safeguards, and environmental reviews of the anticipated application for a license to possess and use special nuclear material for a mixed oxide fuel fabrication facility under 10 CFR Part 70. This guidance includes the construction approval review specifically related to plutonium processing and fuel fabrication. The SRP ensures the quality, uniformity, stability, and predictability of the staff reviews. It presents a defined basis from which to evaluate proposed changes in the scope and requirements of the staff reviews. The SRP makes information about the NRC acceptance criteria widely available to interested members of the public and regulated industry. Each SRP section addresses the responsibilities of persons performing the review, the review areas, the Commission's regulations pertinent to specific technical matters, the acceptance criteria used by the staff, how the review is accomplished, and the conclusions that are appropriate for the Safety Evaluation Report for both the construction approval review and the license review.
