Sunshine Federal Register Notice, 30205-30206 [2011-12929]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 100 / Tuesday, May 24, 2011 / Notices jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES compliance with the fixed site physical protection requirements of 10 CFR part 73 would result in costs significantly in excess of those incurred by others similarly situated. Based on the above, the NRC has determined that the removal of the fuel containing SNM at the 10 CFR part 50 licensed site constitutes special circumstances. With the SNM removed from the Unit 1 site, the protection of the SNM is no longer a requirement of the licensee’s 10 CFR part 50 license. With no SNM to protect, there is no need for the physical protection requirements of 10 CFR part 73, which includes a safeguards contingency plan or procedures, physical security plan, guard training and qualification plan, or cyber security plan for the DNPS Unit 1, 10 CFR part 50 licensed site. The requirements for protection of safeguards information, physical protection of SNM in transit, and records and reports remain applicable. 4.0 Conclusion Accordingly, the Commission has determined that, pursuant to 10 CFR 50.12(a), an exemption is authorized by law, will not present an undue risk to the public health and safety, and is consistent with the common defense and security based on the continued maintenance of appropriate security requirements for the SNM. Additionally, special circumstances are present based on the removal of the spent nuclear fuel from the 10 CFR part 50 licensed site. Therefore, the Commission hereby grants Exelon Nuclear an exemption from the requirements of 10 CFR 50.54(p) at DNPS Unit 1. The Commission has also determined that, pursuant to 10 CFR 73.5, an exemption is authorized by law, will not endanger life or property or the common defense and security, and is otherwise in the public interest because the security requirements for the spent fuel containing SNM are no longer the responsibility of the licensee. Therefore, the Commission hereby grants Exelon Nuclear an exemption from the fixed site physical protection requirements of 10 CFR part 73 at DNPS Unit 1. The fixed site physical protection requirements of 10 CFR part 73 are delineated in 73.20, 74.40, 73.45, 73.46, 73.50, 73.51, 73.54, 73.55, 73.56, 73.57, 73.58, 73.59, 73.60, 73.61, 73.67, Appendix B and Appendix C. The requirements for protection of safeguards information, physical protection of SNM in transit, and records and reports, contained in these or other sections of Part 73 continue to apply. To the extent that the licensee’s request for an exemption from 10 CFR VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:47 May 23, 2011 Jkt 223001 part 73 included the requirements other than for the fixed site physical protection requirements, that request is denied. Part of this licensing action meets the categorical exclusion provision in 10 CFR part 51.22(c)(25), as part of this action is an exemption from the requirements of the Commission’s regulations and (i) There is no significant hazards consideration; (ii) there is no significant change in the types or significant increase in the amounts of any effluents that may be released offsite; (iii) there is no significant increase in individual or cumulative public or occupational radiation exposure; (iv) there is no significant construction impact; (v) there is no significant increase in the potential for or consequences from radiological accidents; and (vi) the requirements from which an exemption is sought involve safeguard plans. Therefore, this part of the action does not require either an environmental assessment or an environmental impact statement. Pursuant to 10 CFR 51.21, 51.32, and 51.35, an environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact related to part of this exemption was published in the Federal Register on May 17, 2011 (76 FR 28480). Based upon the environmental assessment, the Commission has determined that issuance of this exemption will not have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment. These exemptions are effective immediately. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 17th day of May 2011. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Keith I. McConnell, Deputy Director, Decommissioning and Uranium Recovery, Licensing Directorate, Division of Waste Management and Environmental Protection, Office of Federal and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs.

Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) is considering issuance of an amendment to Facility Operating License Nos. NPF–68 and NPF–81 issued to Southern Nuclear Operating Company, Inc. (the licensee), for operation of the Vogtle Electric Generating Plant, Units 1 and 2 (VEGP), located in Burke County, Georgia. The proposed amendment would revise license and Technical Specifications (TSs) 3.3.1 ‘‘Reactor Trip System instrumentation,’’ and TS 3.3.2, ‘‘Engineered Safety Features Actuation System (ESFAS) Instrumentation.’’ Specifically, the amendment proposes the correction of a non-conservative error associated with the ESFAS Permissive P–14, ‘‘Steam Generator Water Level High-High’’ instrument setpoint and associated allowable value. The proposed change is described in Technical Specification Task Force Traveler TSTF–493–A, Revision 4, ‘‘Clarify Application of Setpoint Methodology for LSSS [Limiting Safety System Settings] Functions,’’ Option A as described in the Notice of Availability published in the Federal Register on May 11, 2010 (75 FR 26294). TSTF–493–A revises the Improved Standard TS to address Nuclear Regulatory Commission concerns that the TS requirement for LSSS may not be fully in compliance with the intent of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 50.36. Before issuance of the proposed license amendment, the Commission will have made findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s regulations. The Commission has made a proposed determination that the amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration. Under the Commission’s regulations in 10 CFR 50.92, this means that operation of the facility in accordance with the proposed amendment would not (1) involve a significant increase in the probability or E:\FR\FM\24MYN1.SGM 24MYN1
