SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION Proposed Generic Communication; Post-Fire Safe-Shutdown Circuit Analysis Spurious Actuations Nuclear Regulatory Commission. ACTION: Notice of opportunity for public comment. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to issue a generic letter (GL) to: (1) Request addressees to review their fire protection program to confirm compliance with existing applicable regulatory requirements regarding their assumptions of the phrase ‘‘one-at-atime’’ in light of the information provided in this GL and, if appropriate, take additional actions to return to compliance. Specifically, although some licensees have performed their post-fire, safe-shutdown circuit analyses based on an assumption of only a single spurious actuation per fire event or that spurious actuations will occur ‘‘one-at-a-time,’’ recent industry cable fire test results demonstrated that these assumptions are not valid. (2) Require addressees to submit a written response to the NRC in accordance with NRC regulations in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 50.54(f) (10 CFR 50.54(f)). This Federal Register notice is available through the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) under accession number ML051650017.

Comments submitted after this date will be VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:50 Oct 18, 2005 considered if it is practical to do so, but assurance of consideration cannot be given except for comments received on or before this date. ADDRESSES: Submit written comments to the Chief, Rules and Directives Branch, Division of Administrative Services, Office of Administration, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Mail Stop T6–D59, Washington, DC 20555– 0001, and cite the publication date and page number of this Federal Register notice. Written comments may also be delivered to NRC Headquarters, 11545 Rockville Pike (Room T–6D59), Rockville, Maryland, between 7:30 am and 4:15 pm on Federal workdays. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, CONTACT: Robert Wolfgang at 301–415–1624 or by e-mail rjw1@nrc.gov or Chandu Patel at 301–415–3025 or by e-mail at cpp@nrc.gov. Jkt 208001 Addresses All holders of operating licenses for nuclear power reactors, except those who have permanently ceased operations and have certified that fuel has been permanently removed from the reactor vessel. Purpose The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing this generic letter (GL) to: (1) Request addressees to review their fire protection program to confirm compliance with existing applicable regulatory requirements regarding their assumptions of the phrase ‘‘one-at-atime’’ in light of the information provided in this GL and, if appropriate, take additional actions to return to compliance. Specifically, although some licensees have performed their post-fire, safe-shutdown circuit analyses based on an assumption of only a single spurious actuation per fire event or that spurious actuations will occur ‘‘one-at-a-time,’’ recent industry cable fire test results demonstrated that these assumptions are not valid. (2) Require addressees to submit a written response to the NRC in accordance with NRC regulations in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 50.54(f) (10 CFR 50.54(f)). The reason for this request is that the results from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)/Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) cable fire tests showed a relatively high probability of multiple spurious actuations occurring simultaneously or PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60859 in rapid succession during or after a fire (ref. EPRI Report No. 1006961, ‘‘Spurious Actuation of Electrical Circuits Due to Cable Fires: Results of an Expert Elicitation,’’ dated May 2002 and NUREG/CR–6776, ‘‘Cable Insulation Resistance Measurements Made During Cable Fire Tests,’’ dated June 2002). Some licensees have assumed only a single spurious actuation, and others have assumed that multiple spurious actuations can only occur ‘‘one-at-atime,’’ with sufficient delay between actuations to allow for mitigation. The EPRI/NEI test data clearly show that the use of ‘‘one-at-a-time’’ spurious actuations assumption is not credible. If multiple spurious actuations occurring simultaneously or in rapid succession during or after a fire have not been considered by licensees in their post-fire safe-shutdown circuit analysis, it is possible that they are not in compliance with 10 CFR 50.48 and 10 CFR Part 50, General Design Criterion (GDC) 3. The licensees who conclude that they are no longer in compliance with 10 CFR 50.48 and 10 CFR Part 50, GDC 3, based on the information provided in this GL, are expected to come into compliance with 10 CFR 50.48 and 10 CFR Part 50, GDC 3, using risk-informed or deterministic methods as appropriate to their licensing basis. Background The regulatory requirements for postfire safe shutdown are given in 10 CFR 50.48 and 10 CFR Part 50, Appendix A, GDC 3. Additionally, all nuclear power plants (NPPs) licensed to operate before January 1, 1979, are required to comply with 10 CFR Part 50, Appendix R, Section III.G, ‘‘Fire Protection of Safe Shutdown Capability.’’ All NPPs licensed to operate after January 1, 1979, were evaluated against Section 9.5.1 of NUREG–0800, Standard Review Plan (SRP). The fire protection plan (FPP) and the associated safety evaluation report (SER) are specifically incorporated into those plants’ licensing bases. All NPP licensees are responsible for meeting fire protection commitments and license conditions made during the establishment of their fire protection program. The objective of the fire protection requirements and guidance is to provide reasonable assurance that one train of systems necessary to achieve and maintain hot shutdown is free of fire damage. This includes protecting circuits whose fire-induced failure could prevent the operation, or cause maloperation, of equipment necessary to achieve and maintain post-fire safe shutdown. As part of its fire protection program, each licensee performs a E:\FR\FM\19OCN1.SGM 19OCN1
