Containment Protection and Release Reduction for Mark I and Mark II Boiling Water Reactors

Docket ID: NRC-2013-0075
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC)

This rulemaking would amend the Commission's regulations in 10 CFR part 50 to provide a performance-based option for filtering strategies with drywell filtration and severe accident management of boiling-water reactor Mark I and Mark  II containments. The rule would define performance-based requirements to prevent the release of significant amounts of radioactive material from containment following the dominant severe accident sequences at boiling-water reactors with Mark I and Mark II containments and establish acceptance criteria for confinement strategies. This rulemaking would make generically applicable requirements of EA-13-109.
