[FR Doc. 05–18196 Filed 9–13–05; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7590–01–P NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION [Docket Nos. 50–317 and 50–318] Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, Inc., Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, Unit Nos. 1 and 2; Exemption 1.0 Background The Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, Inc. (the licensee) is the holder of Renewed Facility Operating License VerDate Aug<18>2005 16:17 Sep 13, 2005 Jkt 205001 Nos. DPR–53 and DPR–69, which authorize operation of Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, Unit Nos. 1 and 2 (CCNPP), respectively. The licenses provide, among other things, that the facility is subject to all rules, regulations, and orders of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) now or hereafter in effect. The facility consists of two pressurized-water reactors located in Calvert County in Maryland. law, will not present an undue risk to public health or safety, and are consistent with the common defense and security; and (2) when special circumstances are present. Therefore, in determining the acceptability of the licensee’s exemption request, the NRC staff has performed the following regulatory, technical, and legal evaluations to satisfy the requirements of 10 CFR 50.12 for granting the exemption. 2.0 Request/Action Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Part 50, Section 50.68, ‘‘Criticality accident requirements,’’ sets forth requirements for which a licensee shall comply in lieu of maintaining a monitoring system capable of detecting a criticality as described in 10 CFR 70.24. In particular, subsection (b)(1) of 10 CFR 50.68 requires that plant procedures shall prohibit the handling and storage at any one time of more fuel assemblies than have been determined to be safely subcritical under the most adverse moderation conditions feasible by unborated water. By letter dated December 21, 2004, as supplemented on May 31, 2005, the licensee submitted a request for an exemption from the requirements of 10 CFR 50.68(b)(1) during the pent fuel pool (SFP) activities related to the underwater handling, loading, and unloading of the Transnuclear NUHOMS–32P dry shielded canister (DSC), as described in its proposed Amendment to Materials License No. SNM–2505, dated December 12, 2003, for the plant-specific independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI) at CCNPP. In summary, the licensee is unable to satisfy the above requirement for handling of the Transnuclear NUHOMS–32P DSC authorized by 10 CFR Part 72 at CCNPP. Section 50.12(a) allows licensees to apply for an exemption from the requirements of 10 CFR Part 50 if the application of the regulation is not necessary to achieve the underlying purpose of the rule and special conditions are met. The licensee stated in its application that compliance with 10 CFR 50.68(b)(1) is not necessary for handling the Transnuclear NUHOMS–32P DSC system to achieve the underlying purpose of the rule. 3.1 Regulatory Evaluation The CCNPP Technical Specifications (TSs) currently permit the licensee to store spent fuel assemblies in highdensity storage racks in its SFP. In accordance with the provisions of 10 CFR 50.68(b)(4), the licensee takes credit for soluble boron for criticality control and ensures that the effective neutron multiplication factor (keff) of the SFP does not exceed 0.95, if flooded with borated water. Subsection 50.68(b)(4) also requires that if credit is taken for soluble boron, the keff must remain below 1.0 (subcritical) if flooded with unborated water. However, the licensee is unable to satisfy the requirement to maintain the keff below 1.0 (subcritical) with unborated water, which is also the requirement of 10 CFR 50.68(b)(1), during cask handling operations in the SFP. Therefore, the licensee proposed an exemption from 10 CFR 50.68(b)(1) to permit the performance of spent fuel loading, unloading, and handling operations related to dry cask storage without being analyzed to be subcritical under the most adverse moderation conditions feasible by unborated water. Appendix A, ‘‘General Design Criteria (GDC) for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ to 10 CFR Part 50 provides a list of the minimum design requirements for nuclear power plants. According to GDC 62, ‘‘Prevention of criticality in fuel storage and handling,’’ the licensee must limit the potential for criticality in the fuel handling and storage system by physical systems or processes. Since CCNPP was licensed prior to the issuance of the Appendix A to 10 CFR Part 50, GDC 62 is not directly applicable. However, CCNPP was licensed to the 1967 draft GDC, as discussed in Appendix 1C of the CCNNP Updated Final Safety Analysis Report (UFSAR). The comparable draft GDC is Criterion 66, ‘‘Prevention of Fuel Storage Criticality,’’ that states: ‘‘Criticality in new and spent fuel storage shall be prevented by physical systems or processes. Such means as geometrically safe configurations shall be emphasized over procedural controls.’’ 3.0 Discussion Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.12, the Commission may, upon application by any interested person or upon its own initiative, grant exemptions from the requirements of 10 CFR Part 50 when: (1) The exemptions are authorized by PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\14SEN1.SGM 14SEN1
