NUREG-Series Reports.

NRC regularly publishes reports or brochures on regulatory decisions, results of research, results of incident investigations, and other technical and administrative information in NUREG-Series Publications. The reports are designated as follows: [1]

For example, NUREG-1430 is an NRC staff prepared document describing the Standard Technical Specification (STS) related to Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) plants.

Other NRC Documents.

In addition to the guidance documents, NRC issues, as needed, Generic Letters (GL), Information Notices (INs), Bulletins (B), and Regulatory Issue Summaries (RIS). These documents are issued based on the experiences gained related to the condition and performance of SSCs during operation of nuclear power Plants. For example, RIS are issued to clarify the NRC staff position on the implementation of codes and standards.
