This Standard Review Plan is intended for use by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reviewer. It provides guidance for the safety review of renewal applications for specific licenses of independent spent fuel storage installations and certificates of compliance (CoCs) of dry storage systems, as codified in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 72, "Licensing Requirements for the Independent Storage of Spent Nuclear Fuel, High-Level Radioactive Waste, and Reactor-Related Greater Than Class C Waste."

This Standard Review Plan provides guidance for the review of general information, scoping evaluation information, and aging management information, included in a renewal application. The guidance provides information on review of time-limited aging analyses and aging management programs (AMPs), including learning AMPs that consider and respond to operating experience. The guidance provides example AMPs for welded stainless steel canisters, reinforced concrete structures, and a high burnup fuel monitoring and assessment program. It also provides guidance on considerations for CoC renewals and the general license framework, including guidance on general licensees’ implementation of AMPs.

The NRC expects to periodically revise and update this Standard Review Plan to clarify the content, correct errors, and include new information, knowledge, and experience regarding aging management considerations. Comments, suggestions for improvement, and notices of errors or omissions should be sent to the Director, Division of Spent Fuel Management, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001.
