Standard Guide for Nuclear Facility Decommissioning Plans

1.1 This guide applies to decommissioning plans for any nuclear facility whose operation was (is) governed by Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Agreement State license, under Department of Energy (DOE) orders, or whose operation was overseen by another federal, state, or local agency.

1.2 The guide applies to the preparation and content of the decommissioning plan document itself.

1.3 The detailed description and development of implementation plans identified in Section 4 is outside the scope of this guide.

Note 1: Nuclear facilities operated by the U.S. DOE are not licensed by the U.S. NRC, nor are other nuclear facilities which may come under the control of the U.S. Department of Defense or individual agreement states. The references in this guide to licensee, U.S. NRC Regulatory guides, and Title 10 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations are to imply appropriate alternative nomenclature with respect to DOE, DOD, or agreement state nuclear facilities. This distinction should not alter the content of decommissioning plans for nuclear facilities.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
