Hi there,

Could you please clarify in which day's folder one might find the responsive materials? The ADAMS system does not appear to be easily searchable based on Accession Number.

Thank you.

From: Salley, Brian

I really don’t know about which day’s folder it is in.
I found it 2 different ways:
Put the ML number in google, it come right up.
NRC website, ADAMS, Advanced search, document properties, click under “properties”, choose accession number, under “value” enter the ml number, click search
That should work

Hope that helps
