E8–28934 Filed 12–3–08; 4:15 pm] BILLING CODE 7590–01–P NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION Notice of Opportunity To Comment on Model Safety Evaluation on Technical Specification Improvement To Relocate Surveillance Frequencies to Licensee Control—Risk-Informed Technical Specification Task Force (RITSTF) Initiative 5b, Technical Specification Task Force—425, Revision 2 dwashington3 on PROD1PC60 with NOTICES Background SUMMARY: The U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has prepared a model license amendment request (LAR), model safety evaluation (SE), and model no significant hazards consideration (NSHC) determination. These are related to changes to standard technical specifications (STS) for Technical Specification Task Force (TSTF)—425, Rev. 2, ‘‘Relocate Surveillance Frequencies to Licensee Control—RITSTF Initiative 5b,’’ (Agencywide Documents Access Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML080280275). The purpose of these models is to permit the NRC to efficiently process amendments that propose to relocate TS surveillance frequencies. Licensees of nuclear power reactors could then request amendments, confirming the applicability of the safety evaluation and NSHC determination to their reactors. The NRC staff is requesting comment on the model safety evaluation and model NSHC determination prior to announcing their availability for referencing in license amendment applications. DATES: The comment period expires January 5, 2009. Comments received after this date will be considered if it is practical to do so. However, the Commission can only ensure consideration for comments received on or before this date. ADDRESSES: Please submit comments either electronically or through U.S. mail. E-mail comments to CLIIP@nrc.gov. Mail comments to the Chief, Rulemaking, Directives, and Editing Branch, Division of Administrative Services, Office of Administration, Mail Stop: T–6 D59, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, 15:27 Dec 04, 2008 Jkt 217001 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Robert Elliott, Mail Stop: O–12H2, Technical Specifications Branch, Division of Inspection & Regional Support, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555– 0001, telephone 301–415–8585. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission. ACTION: Request for comment. VerDate Aug<31>2005 Washington, DC 20555–0001. Handdeliver comments to: 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD between 7:45 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. on Federal workdays. Copies of comments received may be examined at the NRC’s Public Document Room, 11555 Rockville Pike (Room O– 1F21), Rockville, MD. You can submit comments electronically to CLIIP@nrc.gov. This notice provides an opportunity for the public to comment on proposed changes to the STS after a preliminary assessment and finding by the NRC staff that the NRC will likely offer the change for adoption by licensees. This notice solicits comment on a proposed change to the STS that modify surveillance frequencies. NRC staff will evaluate any comments received for the proposed change to the STS and reconsider the change or announce the availability of the change for adoption by licensees. Licensees opting to apply for this change are responsible for reviewing the staff’s evaluation, referencing the applicable technical justifications, and providing any necessary plant-specific information. The NRC will process and note each amendment application responding to the notice of availability according to applicable NRC rules and procedures. This notice involves the relocation of most time-based surveillance frequencies to a licensee-controlled program, the Surveillance Frequency Control Program (SFCP), and provides a reference to the SFCP in the administrative controls section of TS. Exceptions to surveillance frequency relocation are those surveillances frequencies that are event driven, event driven with a time component, reference another established licensee program, or condition-based surveillance frequencies. Revision 2 of TSTF–425 addresses all four reactor vendor types. The owners groups participants proposed this change for incorporation into the standard technical specifications in the technical specification task force (TSTF) and is designated TSTF–425, Rev. 2. TSTF– 425, Rev. 2 (ADAMS Accession No. ML080280275), can be viewed on the PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 NRC’s Web page at http://www.nrc.gov/ reading-rm/adams.html. Applicability TSTF–425, Rev 2, is applicable to all nuclear power reactors and requires the application of the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) 04–10, Rev. 1, ‘‘Riskinformed Technical Specifications Initiative 5B, Risk-Informed Method for Control of Surveillance Frequencies,’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML071360456). The NRC staff reviewed and approved NEI 04–10, Revision 1 (Rev. 1), by letter dated September 19, 2007 (ADAMS Accession No. ML072570267). To efficiently process the incoming license amendment applications, the NRC staff requests that each licensee applying for the changes proposed in TSTF–425 include documentation regarding the probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) technical adequacy consistent with the requirements of Section 4.2 Regulatory Guide (RG) 1.200, ‘‘An Approach for Determining the Technical Adequacy of Probabilistic Risk Assessment Results for Risk-Informed Activities’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML070240001). Applicants proposing to use PRA models for which NRC-endorsed standards do not exist must submit documentation that identifies characteristics of those models consistent with Sections 1.2 and 1.3 of RG–1.200 or identify and justify the methods to be applied for assessing the risk contribution for those sources of risk not addressed by PRA models. The proposed change to adopt TSTF– 425 does not prevent licensees from requesting an alternate approach or proposing changes other than those proposed in TSTF–425, Rev. 2. Significant deviations from the approach recommended in this notice, or inclusion of additional changes to the license, however, require additional review by the NRC staff. This may increase the time and resources needed for the review or result in staff rejection of the LAR. Licensees desiring significant deviations or additional changes should instead submit a license amendment request that does not claim to adopt TSTF–425, Rev 2. Public Notices This notice requests comments from interested members of the public within 30 days of the date of publication in the Federal Register. After evaluating the comments received as a result of this notice, the NRC staff will either reconsider the proposed change or announce the availability of the change in a subsequent notice (with possible changes to the safety evaluation or the proposed no significant hazards E:\FR\FM\05DEN1.SGM 05DEN1
