I. Introduction

    The NRC is withdrawing RG 10.1 because it is no longer accurate or

current. Regulatory Guide 10.1 provides a summary of the reporting 
requirements in existence at the time of issuance and becomes outdated 
upon the first change to any NRC reporting requirement after issuance. 
The most recent version of RG 10.1, Revision 4, was issued in October 
1981 (ADAMS Accession No. ML003740185). Regulatory Guide 10.1 provides 
a compilation of reporting requirements applicable to the various types 
of NRC licensees and other persons subject to NRC regulations. It is 
impractical to continue to maintain current and accurate information in 
a timely manner, and is duplicative of the information that is already 
provided in a timely manner in the NRC's regulations in Chapter 1 of 
Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR).

II. Additional Information

    The withdrawal of RG 10.1 does not alter any prior or existing 
licensing commitments based on its use. The guidance provided in RG 
10.1 is no longer necessary. Regulatory guides may be withdrawn when 
their guidance no longer provides useful information, or is superseded 
by technological innovations, Congressional actions, or other events.
    Regulatory guides are revised for a variety of reasons and the 
withdrawal of an RG should be thought of as the final revision of the 
guide. Although a regulatory guide is withdrawn, current licensees may 
continue to use it, and withdrawal does not affect any existing 
licenses or agreements. Withdrawal of a regulatory guide means that the 
regulatory guide should not be used for future NRC licensing 
activities. Changes to existing licenses can be accomplished using 
other regulatory products.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 24th day of June, 2014.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Chief, Regulatory Guidance and Generic Issues Branch, Division of 
Engineering, Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research.
