"R" in the numeric designation signifies that the 1996 standard was reaffirmed (recertified) as an American National Standard in 2006.  No changes can be made to a standard during reaffirmation.

This standard provides design criteria for the process of consolidating LWR spent nuclear fuel in either a wet or a dry environment.  It addresses processes for consolidating fuel either horizontally or vertically.  The standard sets forth requirements for utilizing equipment and systems to perform consolidation, handle fuel rods and nonfuel-bearing components, and handle broken fuel rods.  This standard also contains requirements for facility or installation interfaces, nuclear safety, structural design, thermal design, accountability, safeguards, decommissioning, and quality assurance.
