8 8 REP-10  Principal guidance document on Alert and Notification ̶ Undergoing a significant revision  Re-entered into the concurrence/public comment process on March 22  Taking REP-10 in new direction, i.e., more of an outcome- based perspective ̶ Instead of prescribing technical requirements, will emphasize results ̶ Bottom-line: Whether the requisite objectives are achieved, regardless of the system(s) utilized

9 9 Hostile Action-Based Exercises  HAB scenario exercises are required to be performed once every 8 years.  Exercises includes new planning standards, which will allow law enforcement to communicate directly with utilities.  April 15, 2013 ̶ First scheduled HAB Exercise at Three Mile Island  FEMA has developed the HAB Best Practices Guide to assist OROs.

11 11 NIMS/ICS  Integration of onsite and offsite preparedness with NIMS/ICS under a HAB scenario  FEMA issue as it regards to ORO exercise activities ̶ OROs already use the NIMS/ICS model in their response activities as we have seen in their plans  There has been discussion regarding how can FEMA/NRC require the licensee to use NIMS/ICS in their response plans  The interface between the licensee and the ORO would be improved by requiring the licensee to adopt NIMS/ICS
