Download as PDF 71154 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 224 / Monday, November 22, 2010 / Notices jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES 4.0 Conclusion for Part 73 Schedule Exemption Request The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee’s submittal and concludes that the licensee has provided adequate justification for its request for an extension of the previously authorized compliance date from October 31, 2010, to February 28, 2011, for one specific requirement. This conclusion is based on the staff’s determination that SCE has made a good faith effort to meet the requirements in a timely manner, has sufficiently described the reasons for the unanticipated delays, and has provided an updated detailed schedule with adequate justification for the additional time requested for the extension, based on those delays and an expansion to the original scope of work that the staff agrees is needed to ensure that required system capabilities are met. Accordingly, the Commission has determined that pursuant to 10 CFR 73.5, ‘‘Specific exemptions,’’ an exemption to further extend the March 31, 2010, compliance date is authorized by law and will not endanger life or property or the common defense and security, and is otherwise in the public interest. Therefore, the Commission hereby grants the requested exemption. The NRC staff has determined that the long-term benefits that will be realized when the SONGS security modifications are completed justifies exceeding the full compliance date with regard to the specified requirements of 10 CFR 73.55. The significant security enhancements SONGS needs additional time to complete are new requirements imposed by March 27, 2009, amendments to 10 CFR 73.55, and are in addition to those required by the security orders issued in response to the events of September 11, 2001. Therefore, the NRC concludes that the licensee’s actions are in the best interest of protecting the public health and safety through the security changes that will result from granting this exemption. As per the licensee’s request and the NRC’s regulatory authority to grant an exemption from the March 31, 2010, deadline for the one remaining item specified in Enclosure 1 of SCE’s letters dated August 24 and October 17, 2010, the licensee is required to be in full compliance by February 28, 2011. In achieving compliance, the licensee is reminded that it is responsible for determining the appropriate licensing mechanism (i.e., 10 CFR 50.54(p) or 10 CFR 50.90) for incorporation of all necessary changes to its security plans. Pursuant to 10 CFR 51.32, ‘‘Finding of no significant impact,’’ the Commission has previously determined that the VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:49 Nov 19, 2010 Jkt 223001 granting of this exemption will not have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment (75 FR 69136; November 10, 2010). This exemption is effective upon issuance. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 10th day of November 2010. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Joseph G. Giitter, Director, Division of Operating Reactor Licensing, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.
