The paper provides background on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s April 1984, Director’s Decision on failed and damaged spent fuel, DD-84-9. Examples of damaged fuel transports and the recently issued NRC interim staff guidance on damaged SNF, ISG-1, are discussed. These preliminary topics form the basis for discussion of the need, development and status of an American National Standards Institute standard, ANSI N14.33, for damaged spent fuel.
