document corrects the identification numbers for aging management 
review (AMR) items in the revised guidance for the Generic Aging

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background Information

    The NRC announced the issuance of License Renewal Interim Staff 
Guidance LR-ISG-2011-01, ``Aging Management of Stainless Steel 
Structures and Components in Treated Borated Water,'' in the Federal 
Register on May 11, 2012 (77 FR 27815). As issued, LR-ISG-2011-01 
contained identification numbers for three AMR items which were 
inconsistent with the GALL Report numbering convention. To ensure 
consistency, the NRC is issuing Revision 1 to LR-ISG-2011-01 to correct 
three AMR identification numbers, as follows:
    1. GALL Report Item V.A.EP-74 was corrected to read ``V.A.E-20''
    2. GALL Report Item VII.E1.AP-79 was corrected to read ``VII.E1.A-
88''
    3. GALL Report Item VII.E1.A-102 was corrected to read ``VII.E1.AP-
79''
    This revision is editorial; it does not affect the technical 
content of the interim staff guidance.

Backfitting and Issue Finality

    Issuance of this corrected LR-ISG does not constitute backfitting 
as defined in section 50.109 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR), (the Backfit Rule), and is not otherwise 
inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR Part 52, 
``Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants.'' 
No substantive changes are being made in this revision. The only 
changes are the corrections to the identification numbers for three 
AMRs, which are being made to ensure consistency with the GALL Report's 
numbering convention.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 7th day of December, 2012.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
John W. Lubinski,
Director, Division of License Renewal, Office of Nuclear Reactor 
Regulation.
