The proposed amendment would modify Technical Specification (TS) 3.7.3, ‘‘Control Room Envelope Air Conditioning (AC) System,’’ by adding an Action Statement to the Limiting Conditions for Operation. The new Action Statement allows a finite time to restore one control room envelope AC subsystem to operable status and requires verification that the control room temperature remains < 90 °F every 4 hours. In its application dated July 30, 2007, the licensee submitted its proposed changes as being applicable to the model Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC)-approved TS Task Force (TSTF) TSTF–477, Revision 3, ‘‘Adding an Action Statement for Two Inoperable Control Room Air Conditioning Subsystems.’’ The availability of this TS improvement was published in the Federal Register on March 26, 2007 (72 FR 14143), as part of the consolidated line item improvement process. By letter dated September 8, 2008, the licensee provided administrative changes to its proposed TSs and a supplemental No Significant Hazards Consideration determination as shown below. Before issuance of the proposed license amendment, the Commission will have made findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s regulations. The Commission has made a proposed determination that the amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration. Under the Commission’s regulations in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Section 50.92, this means that operation of the facility in accordance with the proposed amendment would not (1) involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an PO 00000 Frm 00146 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 accident previously evaluated; or (2) create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated; or (3) involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed changes administratively revise the wording of TS 3.7.3, ‘‘Control Room Air Conditioning (AC) System,’’ and do not change Actions or associated Completion Times currently included in the TS (as modified by TSTF–477–A). They do not impact any accident initiators, the ability to mitigate previously evaluated accidents, or the assumptions used in evaluating the radiological consequences of previously evaluated accidents. The proposed changes do not involve the addition or removal of any equipment, or any design changes to the facility. Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. 2. Does the proposed amendment create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed changes administratively revise the wording of TS 3.7.3, ‘‘Control Room Air Conditioning (AC) System,’’ and do not change Actions or associated Completion Times currently included in the TS (as modified by TSTF–477–A). They do not involve a modification to the physical configuration of the plant (i.e., no new equipment will be installed) or involve a change in the methods governing normal plant operation. The proposed changes will not impose any new or different requirements or introduce a new accident initiator, accident precursor, or failure mechanism. Therefore, the proposed changes do not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. The proposed TS changes are administrative in nature. They do not involve a modification to the physical configuration of the plant (i.e., no new equipment will be installed) or change the methods governing normal plant operation. The proposed changes do not modify the safety limits or setpoints at which protective actions are initiated, and do not change the requirements governing operation or availability of safety equipment assumed to operate to preserve margins of safety. Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. E:\FR\FM\24SEN1.SGM 24SEN1
