Availability Notice


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

This SRP was published for public comment, and the responses to those comments are available at ML20023A361. This SRP may be revised and updated as the need arises on a chapter-by-chapter basis to clarify the content, correct errors, or incorporate modifications approved by the Director of the NRC Division of Spent Fuel Management. Comments, suggestions for improvement, and notices of errors or omissions should be sent to and will be considered by the Director, Division of Spent Fuel Management, Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001.
