B. Robinson Steam Electric Plant, Unit No. 2; Exemption 1.0 Background Carolina Power & Light Company (CP&L, the licensee) is the holder of Renewed Facility Operating License No. DPR–23, which authorizes operation of the H.B. Robinson Steam Electric Plant, Unit 2 (HBRSEP). The license provides, among other things, that the facility is VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:35 Dec 29, 2010 Jkt 223001 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 New Hill, North Carolina. 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 as a final rule 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 plans. The amendments to 10 CFR 73.55 published on March 27, 2009 (74 FR 13926), 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. By letter dated March 3, 2010 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML100082190), the NRC granted an exemption to the licensee for two specific items subject to the new rule in 10 CFR 73.55, allowing the implementation of these items to be extended until December 30, 2010. The licensee has implemented all other physical security requirements established by this rulemaking prior to March 31, 2010, the required implementation date. By letter dated September 30, 2010, the licensee requested an exemption in accordance with 10 CFR 73.5, ‘‘Specific exemptions.’’ Specifically, the licensee requested an extension of the implementation date for the remaining one item from December 30, 2010, to September 16, 2011. Portions of the licensee’s September 30, 2010, letter contain security-related information and, accordingly, a redacted version of this letter is available for public review in the ADAMS No. ML103360283. The licensee requested this exemption to allow an additional extension from the current implementation date granted in the prior exemption to implement one remaining item of the requirements that PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 involves important physical modifications to the HBRSEP security system. The licensee has performed an extensive evaluation of the revised 10 CFR part 73 and has achieved compliance with a vast majority of the revised rule. However, the licensee has determined that implementation of one specific item of the rule will require more time to implement because it involves upgrades to the security system that require significant physical modifications (e.g., the relocation of certain security assets to a new security building that will be constructed, and the addition of certain power supplies). Granting an exemption would allow the licensee time to complete the necessary security modifications to meet the regulatory requirements. 3.0 Discussion of Part 73 Schedule Exemption From the March 31, 2010, Full Implementation Date Pursuant 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.’’’ In accordance with 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. In the draft final rule provided 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 days to approximately 1 year for licensees to fully implement the new requirements. This change was incorporated into the final rule. As noted in the final rule, the Commission anticipated that licensees would have to conduct site-specific 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 (Reference: June 4, E:\FR\FM\30DEN1.SGM 30DEN1
