RevCom: DOE-STD-1228-YR, Preparation of Documented Safety Analysis for Hazard Category 3 Nuclear Facilities

This new draft standard is intended to be available for inclusion in Table 2 of Appendix A as a new safe harbor methodology that defines an approach for Hazard Category 3 nuclear facilities to meeting the requirements of 10 CFR 830, Subpart B. The new Standard will also fulfill recommendations provided by the Deputy Secretary's direction memo, dated August 15, 2017, Internal Regulatory Reform, DECISIONAL: Initiate a Rulemaking to Revise 10 CFR Part 830, to differentiate the treatment of Hazard Category 2 and Hazard Category 3 nuclear facilities by providing "an appropriate graded approach to implementation of the requirements in 10 CFR 830, Subpart B," to better consider the lower level risk of operations.
