This Standard Review Plan (SRP) provides guidance to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff for reviewing an application for package approval issued under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Part 71, "Packaging and Transportation of Radioactive Material." NRC approval of a package design typically results in issuance of a certificate of compliance (CoC) or a letter amendment for a transportation package.
The objectives of this SRP are to assist the NRC staff in its reviews by
providing a basis that promotes uniform quality and a consistent regulatory review of an application for a CoC for a transportation package
presenting a basis for the review's scope
identifying acceptable approaches to meeting regulatory requirements
suggesting possible evaluation findings that can be used in the safety evaluation report
