SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is requesting 
public comment on the proposed model safety evaluation (SE) for plant-
specific adoption of Technical Specifications (TS) Task Force (TSTF) 
Traveler TSTF-510, Revision 2, ``Revision to Steam Generator Program 
Inspection Frequencies and Tube Sample Selection.'' TSTF-510, Revision 
2, is available in the Agencywide Documents Access and Management 
System (ADAMS) under Accession Number ML110610350, and includes a model 
application. The proposed change revises the Improved Standard 
Technical Specification (ISTS), NUREGs-1430, -1431, and -1432,

for this TS change are responsible for reviewing the NRC staff's SE, 
and the applicable technical justifications, providing any necessary 
plant-specific information, and assessing the completeness and accuracy 
of their license amendment request (LAR). The NRC will process each 
amendment application responding to the notice of availability
