The NEC petition requested that the NRC promptly restore reasonable assurance of adequate protection of public health and safety with regard to the fire barriers in electrical cable protection systems at Vermont Yankee, or otherwise to order a derate of Vermont Yankee until such time as the operability of the fire barriers can be assured. Specifically, the petition requested that the Commission take the following actions: (1) Require Entergy Nuclear Vermont Yankee (ENVY) to promptly conduct a review at Vermont Yankee to determine the extent of condition, including a full inventory of the type, amount, application, and placement of Hemyc, and an assessment of the safety significance of each application; (2) require ENVY to promptly provide justification for operation in nonconformance with 10 CFR Part 50, Appendix R; and (3) upon finding that Vermont Yankee is operating in an unanalyzed condition and/or that assurance of public health and safety is degraded, promptly order a power reduction (derate) of Vermont PO 00000 Frm 00108 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Yankee until such time as it can be demonstrated that ENVY is operating in conformance with 10 CFR Part 50, Appendix R, and all other applicable regulations. The request is being treated pursuant to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Section 2.206, of the Commission’s regulations. The request has been referred to the Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation. As provided by 10 CFR 2.206, appropriate action will be taken on this petition within a reasonable time. Mr. Raymond Shadis, in his capacity as the petitioner’s Staff Technical Advisor, participated in a telephone conference call with the NRC’s Petition Review Board (PRB) on May 17, 2005, to discuss the petition. The results of that discussion were considered in the PRB’s determination regarding the petitioner’s request for action and in establishing the schedule for the review of the petition. During the May 17, 2005, PRB conference call, the petitioner requested that the licensee review fire barriers beyond the Hemyc electric raceway fire barrier system. This request will not be accepted under the 2.206 process because the petitioner did not provide adequate information to justify expanding the scope of the review. A copy of the petition and the transcript of the telephone conference call are available for inspection at the Commission’s Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, Public File Area O1 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland, and from the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS), Public Electronic Reading Room, on the Internet at the NRC Web site, http:// www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html (ADAMS Accession Nos.
