NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION


Regulatory Guide; Issuance, Availability

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued a revision 
of a guide in its Regulatory Guide Series. This series has been 
developed to describe and make available to the public such information 
as methods acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts 
of the NRC's regulation, techniques used by the staff in evaluating 
specific problems or postulated accidents, and data needed by the staff 
in its review of applications for permits and licenses.
    Revision 32 of Regulatory Guide 1.84, ``Design, Fabrication, and 
Materials Code Case Acceptability, ASME Section III,'' contains 
comprehensive guidance on all Section III Code Cases, including those 
oriented to materials and related testing in Division 1.
    With the issuance of Revision 32 to Regulatory Guide 1.84, 
Regulatory Guide 1.85, ``Materials Code Case Acceptability, ASME 
Section III, Division 1,'' is being withdrawn because the guidance in 
Regulatory Guide 1.85 has been updated and incorporated into Revision 
32 of Regulatory Guide 1.84.
    Comments and suggestions in connection with items for inclusion in 
guides currently being developed or improvements in all published 
guides are encouraged at any time. You may submit comments by any one 
of the following methods. Comments may be accompanied by relevant 
information or supporting data. Written comments may be submitted by 
mail to the Rules and Directives Branch, Office of Administration, U.S. 
Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001; or they may 
be hand-delivered to the Rules and Directives Branch, Office of 
Administration, at 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD. Copies of 
comments received may be examined at the NRC's Public Document Room, 
11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD.
    You may also provide comments via the NRC's interactive rulemaking 
web site through the NRC home page (http://www.nrc.gov). Regulatory 
guides are available for inspection at the NRC's Public Document Room, 
11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD; the PDR's mailing address is USNRC
