Notice of Availability of the Models for Plant-Specific Adoption of Technical Specifications Task Force Traveler TSTF-514, Revision 3, “Revise BWR Operability Requirements and Actions for RCS Leakage Instrumentation”, 79048-79049 [2010-31730]

Download as PDF 79048 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 242 / Friday, December 17, 2010 / Notices In conclusion, OSHA is not initiating rulemaking to permit the use of an SDoC as an alternative to OSHA’s current NRTL Program for approving electrical products for use in the workplace. By statute, OSHA must demonstrate, based on substantial evidence, that its safety regulations and standards will provide or maintain a high degree of protection for U.S. workers. The evidence in the record does not meet the burden required for OSHA to revise its standards to accommodate an SDoC system for electrical safety in the workplace. OSHA finds that such a revision would increase the risk that unsafe products will enter the workplace and harm workers because an SDoC system cannot control these risks effectively to provide the requisite level of worker protection. In addition, Congress would need to authorize and fund OSHA to regulate and enforce product-related activities of manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. The evidence in the record submitted in response to the 2008 RFI does not justify an expansion of, or funding for, OSHA’s regulatory and enforcement authority for the purpose of implementing an SDoC system. However, notwithstanding this decision, OSHA remains open to discuss concerns regarding the NRTL Program, as well as means that may be available to mitigate the concerns expressed by the EC and other pro-SDoC commenters, provided these means are within the limits of OSHA’s authority, funding, and staffing. VI. Authority and Signature David Michaels, PhD, MPH, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210, directed the preparation of this notice. This action is taken pursuant to sections 4, 6, and 8 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 657), Secretary of Labor’s Order No. 5–2007 (72 FR 31159), and 29 CFR Part 1911.

Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) is issuing a new guide in the agency’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the agency’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. Regulatory Guide 5.80, ‘‘PressureSensitive and Tamper-Indicating Device Seals for Material Control and Accounting of Special Nuclear Material,’’ was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–5029. This regulatory guide replaces the existing RG 5.10, ‘‘Selection and Use of Pressure-Sensitive Seals on VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:45 Dec 16, 2010 Jkt 223001 Containers for Onsite Storage of Special Nuclear Material,’’ issued July 1973, and the existing RG 5.15, ‘‘TamperIndicating Seals for the Protection and Control of Special Nuclear Material,’’ issued March 1997, with a new regulatory guide titled, ‘‘PressureSensitive and Tamper-Indicating Device Seals for MC&A Use.’’ As a replacement, this guide describes a number of improved tamper-indicating devices (TIDs) and pressure-sensitive (PS) seals developed in recent years, primarily in response to commercial interests outside the nuclear industry. This guide, among other things, distinguishes between genuine and nongenuine manufactured seals and stresses serial number identification to aid in the control of material or to alert shipping and receiving personnel to containers that were opened in transit. This guide also incorporates suggestions for ensuring that TIDs are properly applied. In June 2009, DG–5029 was published with a public comment period of 60 days from the issuance of the guide. The public comment period closed on October 13, 2009. The staff’s responses to the public comments received can be located in the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) under Accession Number ML101810238. The regulatory analysis may be found in ADAMS under Accession Number ML101800517. Electronic copies of RG 5.80 are available through the NRC’s public Web site under ‘‘Regulatory Guides’’ at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doccollections/. In addition, regulatory guides are available for inspection at the NRC’s Public Document Room (PDR) located at 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland. The PDR’s mailing address is USNRC PDR, Washington, DC 20555– 0001. The PDR can also be reached by telephone at 301–415–4737 or 1–800– 397–4205, by fax at 301–415–3548, and by e-mail to pdr.resource@nrc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a revision to an existing guide in the agency’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the agency’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 3.12, ‘‘General Design Guide for Ventilation Systems of Plutonium Processing and Fuel Fabrication Plant,’’ was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–3034. This guide describes a method that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for use in complying with Title 10, § 70.23(a)(3), of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 70.23(a)(3)), and 10 CFR 70.23(a)(4) on the design of ventilation systems for plutonium processing and fuel fabrication plants. At plutonium processing and fuel fabrication plants, a principal risk to health and safety is the release and dispersal of radioactive materials. The prevention of such release and dispersal is an important function of the ventilation systems. To meet these objectives, this guide provides recommendations for achieving defense in depth and for minimizing the release of radioactive materials to the environment. Each applicant for a license to possess and use special nuclear material in a plutonium processing and fuel fabrication plant, as defined in 10 CFR E:\FR\FM\17DEN1.SGM 17DEN1

SUMMARY: As part of the consolidated line item improvement process 
(CLIIP), the NRC is announcing the availability of the model 
application (with model no significant hazards consideration 
determination) and model safety evaluation (SE) for the plant-specific 
adoption of Technical Specifications Task Force (TSTF) Traveler TSTF-
514, Revision 3, ``Revise BWR [boiling water reactor] Operability 
Requirements and Actions for RCS [reactor coolant system] Leakage 
Instrumentation.'' TSTF-514, Revision 3, is available in the Agencywide 
Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) under Accession Number
