Download as PDF 15754 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 48 / Tuesday, March 12, 2013 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES entering the comment submissions into ADAMS. II. Further Information The NRC is issuing for public comment a draft guide in the NRC’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC’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. The draft regulatory guide (DG), entitled, ‘‘Maintenance, Testing, and Replacement of Vented Lead-Acid Storage Batteries for Nuclear Power Plants’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–1269, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. DG–1269 is proposed Revision 3 of Regulatory Guide (RG) 1.129, dated February 2007. The NRC developed this regulatory guide to describe a method that the NRC staff considers acceptable for use in complying with the agency’s regulations with regard to the maintenance, testing, and replacement of vented lead-acid storage batteries in nuclear power plants. Specifically, the method described in this regulatory guide relates to General Design Criteria (GDC) 1, 17, and 18 as set forth in Appendix A, ‘‘General Design Criteria for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ to part 50 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities.’’ DG–1269 endorses (with certain clarifying regulatory positions) the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers IEEE Std 450–2010, ‘‘IEEE Recommended Practice for Maintenance, Testing, and Replacement of Vented Lead-Acid Batteries for Stationary Applications.’’ That standard is an update of IEEE Std 450–2002 upon which RG 1.129, Rev. 2 is based. The revised IEEE Std 450–2010 refines the condition monitoring guidance and the use of rate-adjusted test methods for acceptance testing to ensure consistent performance of vented lead-acid batteries. The revised guidance addresses (1) Evaluating the adequacy of the modified performance tests for batteries, (2) the use of charging current to assess the fully-charged condition of batteries, (3) determining the point at which a battery can be returned to service and be able to meet its capacity and capability requirements, and (4) consistency with standard technical specifications regarding battery monitoring criteria. The revised guide VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:21 Mar 11, 2013 Jkt 229001 would be useful in support of new reactor license applications, design certifications, and applications for license amendments. III. Backfitting and Issue Finality This draft regulatory guide, if finalized, does not constitute backfitting as defined in 10 CFR 50.109 (the Backfit Rule) and is not otherwise inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52, ‘‘Licenses, Certifications and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants.’’ This draft regulatory guide, if finalized, will provide guidance on one possible means for meeting NRC’s regulatory requirements with regard to the maintenance, testing, and replacement of vented lead-acid storage batteries in nuclear power plants in GDCs 1, 17 and 18, and the qualification testing requirements of Criterion III of 10 CFR part 50, Appendix B. Existing licensees and applicants of final design certification rules will not be required to comply with the positions set forth in this draft regulatory guide, unless the licensee or design certification rule applicant seeks a voluntary change to its licensing basis with respect to maintenance, testing, or replacement of vented lead-acid storage batteries, and where the NRC determines that the safety review must include consideration of the maintenance, testing, or replacement of vented leadacid storage batteries. Further information on the staff’s use of the draft regulatory guide, if finalized, is contained in DG–1269 under section D. Implementation. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 1st day of March 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Questionnaire for National Security Positions, SF 86, housed in a system named e-QIP (Electronic Questionnaires for Investigative Processing), is an information collection completed by applicants for, or incumbents of, Federal Government civilian or military positions, or positions in private entities performing work for the Federal Government under contract. The collection is used as the basis of information: • By the Federal Government in conducting background investigations, reinvestigations, and continuous evaluations, as appropriate, of persons under consideration for or retention in national security sensitive positions as defined in Executive Order 10450 and 5 CFR part 732, and for positions requiring eligibility for access to classified information under Executive Order 12968; • By agencies in determining whether a person performing work for or on behalf of the Federal Government under a contract should be deemed eligible for logical or physical access when the nature of the work is sensitive and could bring about a material adverse effect on national security. The SF 86 is completed by civilian employees of the Federal Government, military personnel, and non-federal employees, including Federal contractors and individuals otherwise not directly employed by the Federal Government but who perform work for or on behalf of the Federal Government. For applicants for civilian Federal employment, the SF 86 is to be used only after a conditional offer of employment has been made. It is estimated that 263,566 non-federal individuals, will complete the SF 86 annually. The SF 86 takes approximately 150 minutes to complete. The estimated annual burden is 658,915 hours. e-QIP is a web-based system application that currently houses electronic versions of the SF 86.
