The license provides, among other things, that the facility is subject to all rules, regulations, and orders of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) now or hereafter in effect. The facility consists of one pressurized-water reactor located in Washington County, Nebraska. jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES 2.0 Request/Action Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 73, ‘‘Physical protection of plants and materials,’’ Section 73.55, ‘‘Requirements for physical protection of licensed activities in nuclear power reactors against radiological sabotage,’’ published in the Federal Register on March 27, 2009, effective May 26, 2009, with a full implementation date of March 31, 2010, requires licensees to protect, with high assurance, against radiological sabotage by designing and implementing comprehensive site security programs. The amendments to 10 CFR 73.55 published on March 27, 2009, establish and update generically applicable security requirements similar to those previously imposed by Commission orders issued after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and implemented by licensees. In addition, the amendments to 10 CFR 73.55 include additional requirements to further enhance site security based upon insights gained from implementation of the post-September 11, 2001, security orders. It is from three of these new requirements that OPPD now seeks an exemption from the March 31, 2010, implementation date. All other physical security requirements established by this recent rulemaking have already VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:22 Mar 29, 2010 Jkt 220001 been or will be implemented by the licensee by March 31, 2010. By letter dated December 31, 2009, as supplemented by letter dated January 21, 2010, the licensee requested an exemption in accordance with 10 CFR 73.5, ‘‘Specific exemptions.’’ Portions of the licensee’s letters dated December 31, 2009, and January 21, 2010, contain security-related information and, accordingly, those portions are being withheld from public disclosure. The licensee has requested an exemption from the March 31, 2010, compliance date stating that it must complete a number of significant modifications to the current site security configuration before all requirements can be met. Specifically, the request is for three requirements that would be met by October 5, 2011, instead of the March 31, 2010, deadline. Granting this exemption for the three items would allow the licensee to complete the necessary security system upgrades to meet or exceed regulatory requirements. 3.0 Discussion of Part 73 Schedule Exemptions From the March 31, 2010, Full Implementation Date Pursuant to 10 CFR 73.55(a)(1), ‘‘By March 31, 2010, each nuclear power reactor licensee, licensed under 10 CFR Part 50, shall implement the requirements of this section through its Commission-approved Physical Security Plan, Training and Qualification Plan, Safeguards Contingency Plan, and Cyber Security Plan referred to collectively hereafter as ‘security plans.’’’ Pursuant to 10 CFR 73.5, the Commission may, upon application by any interested person or upon its own initiative, grant exemptions from the requirements of 10 CFR Part 73 when the exemptions are authorized by law, and will not endanger life or property or the common defense and security, and are otherwise in the public interest. NRC approval of this exemption, as noted above, would allow an extension from March 31, 2010, until October 5, 2011, of the implementation date for three specific requirements of the new rule. As stated above, 10 CFR 73.5 allows the NRC to grant exemptions from the requirements of 10 CFR 73. The NRC staff has determined that granting of the licensee’s proposed exemption would not result in a violation of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, or the Commission’s regulations. Therefore, the exemption is authorized by law. In the draft final rule sent to the Commission, the NRC staff proposed that the requirements of the new regulation be met within 180 days. The Commission directed a change from 180 PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 days to approximately 1 year for licensees to fully implement the new requirements. This change was incorporated into the final rule. From this, it is clear that the Commission wanted to provide a reasonable timeframe for licensees to reach full compliance. As noted in the final rule, the Commission also anticipated that licensees would have to conduct sitespecific analyses to determine what changes were necessary to implement the rule’s requirements, and that changes could be accomplished through a variety of licensing mechanisms, including exemptions. Since issuance of the final rule, the Commission has rejected a request to generically extend the rule’s compliance date for all operating nuclear power plants, but noted that the Commission’s regulations provide mechanisms for individual licensees, with good cause, to apply for relief from the compliance date as documented in the letter from R. W. Borchardt (NRC) to M. S. Fertel (Nuclear Energy Institute) dated June 4, 2009. The licensee’s request for an exemption is therefore consistent with the approach set forth by the Commission and discussed in the June 4, 2009, letter. FCS Schedule Exemption Request The licensee provided detailed information in the Attachments to its letters dated December 31, 2009, and January 21, 2010, requesting an exemption. The licensee is requesting additional time to implement certain new requirements due to the amount of engineering and design, material procurement, and construction and installation activities. The licensee describes a comprehensive plan to upgrade the security capabilities of the FCS site and provides a timeline for achieving full compliance with the new regulation. The Attachments to the licensee’s letters contain securityrelated information regarding the site security plan, details of specific requirements of the regulation for which the site cannot be in compliance by the March 31, 2010, deadline, and a timeline with critical path activities that would enable the licensee to achieve full compliance by October 5, 2011. The timeline provides milestone dates for engineering, planning and procurement, implementation, startup and testing, engineering closeout, and project closeout. A redacted version of the licensee’s letter dated December 31, 2009, is publicly available in Agencywide Documents Management and Access System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML100050032.
