South Carolina Electric & Gas Company; Notice of Withdrawal of Application for Amendment to Facility Operating License, 54416 [05-18195]

Download as PDF 54416 3.4 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 177 / Wednesday, September 14, 2005 / Notices Summary Based upon the review of the licensee’s exemption request to credit soluble boron during DSC loading, unloading, and handling in the CCNPP SFP, the NRC staff concludes that pursuant to 10 CFR 50.12(a)(2) the licensee’s exemption request is acceptable. However, the NRC staff places the following limitations and/or conditions on the approval of this exemption: 1. This exemption is limited to the loading, unloading, and handling of the DSC for only the TN NUHOMS–32P at CCNPP. 2. This exemption is limited to the loading, unloading, and handling in the DSC at CCNPP of Combustion Engineering 14x14 fuel assemblies that had maximum initial, unirradiated U– 235 enrichments of 4.5 weight percent. 4.0 Conclusion Accordingly, the Commission has determined that, pursuant to 10 CFR 50.12(a), the exemption is authorized by law, will not present an undue risk to the public health and safety, and is consistent with the common defense and security. Also, special circumstances are present. Therefore, the Commission hereby grants the licensee an exemption from the requirements of 10 CFR 50.68(b)(1) for the loading, unloading, and handling of the components of the Transnuclear NUHOMS–32P dry cask storage system at CCNPP. However, since the licensee does not have an NRCapproved methodology for evaluating changes to the analyses or systems supporting this exemption request, the NRC staff’s approval of the exemption is restricted to those specific design and operating conditions described in the licensee’s December 21, 2004, exemption request. The licensee may not apply the 10 CFR 50.59 process for evaluating changes to specific exemptions. Any changes to the design or operation of (1) the dry cask storage system, (2) the SFP, (3) the fuel assemblies to be stored, (4) the boron dilution analyses, or (5) supporting procedures and controls, regardless of whether they are approved under the general Part 72 license or perceived to be conservative, will invalidate this exemption. Upon invalidation of the exemption, the licensee will be required to comply with NRC regulations prior to future cask loadings. Pursuant to 10 CFR 51.32, the Commission has determined that the granting of this exemption will not have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment (70 FR 51853). VerDate Aug<18>2005 16:17 Sep 13, 2005 Jkt 205001 This exemption is effective upon issuance. 397–4209, or 301–415–4737 or by e-mail to pdr@nrc.gov.
