[FR Doc. 2012–19258 Filed 8–6–12; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7555–01–P VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:52 Aug 06, 2012 Jkt 226001 1.0 Background Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, LLC (the licensee) is the holder of Renewed Facility Operating License Nos. DPR–53 and DPR–69, which authorizes operation of the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, Units 1 and 2 (Calvert Cliffs). The licenses provide, among other things, that the facility is subject to all rules, regulations, and orders of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) now or hereafter in effect. The facility consists of two pressurized-water reactors (PWRs) located in Calvert County, Maryland. 2.0 Request/Action Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 26, Subpart I requires licensees to establish a policy for the management of fatigue for all individuals who are subject to the PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47121 licensee’s fitness for duty program. Regulatory Guide 5.73, ‘‘Fatigue Management for Nuclear Power Plant Personnel,’’ endorses the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) report NEI 06–11, revision 1, ‘‘Managing Personnel Fatigue at Nuclear Power Plants,’’ with clarifications, additions and exceptions. NRC staff has endorsed this guidance for use during a plant emergency. After exiting the emergency, the licensee is immediately subject to the scheduling requirements of 10 CFR 26.205(c) and the work hour/rest break/minimum day off requirements of 10 CFR 26.205(d). All time worked during the emergency must be tracked to help ensure that individuals are not fatigued on the first day of reinstated work hour controls per 10 CFR 26.205(b)(3). On June 2, 2010, during a lessons learned public meeting regarding Part 26 Subpart I exemption request submissions, work hour controls during periods of severe winds such as a tropical storm or hurricane, the NRC staff indicated that it finds NEI 06–11 Section 7.5 ‘‘Reset from Deviations’’ to be an acceptable method for resuming work hour controls after the recovery period. Section 26.205(b) contains the requirement to count work hours and days worked; and (b)(2) was reviewed to understand if the licensee had provided a reasonable opportunity and accommodations for restorative sleep. Calvert Cliffs is located along the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay and can be impacted by tropical storms and hurricanes during the hurricane season and severe winter precipitation conditions during January and February. By letter dated July 21, 2011 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML11203A513), as supplemented by letter dated March 1, 2012 (ADAMS Accession No. ML12065A182) and electronic mail dated July 10, 2012 (ADAMS Accession No. ML12193A488), the licensee requested an exemption from the requirements of 10 CFR 26.205(c) and (d) for meeting work hour rule controls during declarations of severe weather conditions involving tropical storm or hurricane force winds or severe winter precipitation. According to the application, adherence to work hour control requirements could impede the ability to respond to an emergency condition at the site when travel to and from the site may be impeded. Specifically, the exemption would allow Calvert Cliffs to sequester sufficient individuals to staff two 12-hour shifts to maintain safe and secure operation during severe weather conditions.
