Where: NRC: Regulatory Information Conference.

Date: March 12, 2013.

Panel session: 3:30 to 5:00 pm.

Session Title and Description:  Promoting Success for Emergency Preparedness Guidance NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1, “Criteria for Preparation and Evaluation of Radiological Emergency Response Plans and Preparedness in Support of Nuclear Power Plants,” was issued in 1980.  Following Emergency Preparedness (EP) rulemaking, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the NRC initiated a multi-year process to revise NUREG?0654/FEMA-REP-1 to update existing guidance.

Public meetings occurred in August and September 2012 to engage external stakeholders.  More public meetings and comment periods will occur throughout the planned timeline, currently extending until 2017.  This session is targeted to complement these ongoing efforts by providing the current status of the NUREG?0654/FEMA-REP-1 revision project.  Key questions that the NRC and FEMA posed during the 2012 meetings will be used to encourage discussion, including “

How do stakeholders define success  with respect to the guidance revision?”
