Jkt 229001 Pursuant to 10 CFR 2.312, the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board hereby provides notice that it will convene an evidentiary session to receive testimony and exhibits in the contested portion of this proceeding. In addition, the Board gives notice that, in accordance with 10 CFR 2.315(a), it will entertain oral and written limited appearance statements from members of the public in connection with this proceeding. A. Matters To Be Considered This combined license (‘‘COL’’) contested proceeding involves the application of DTE Electric Company (formerly the Detroit Edison Company) (‘‘Applicant’’) under 10 CFR part 52, Subpart C, to construct and to operate a GE-Hitachi Economic Simplified Boiling Water Reactor (‘‘ESBWR’’), designated Unit 3, on its existing Fermi PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29781 nuclear facility site in Monroe County, Michigan.1 This evidentiary hearing will consider two contentions. i. Contention 8 Contention 8, as restated by the Board, alleges that the ER fails to adequately assess [Fermi Unit 3]’s impacts on the eastern fox snake and to consider alternatives that would reduce or eliminate those impacts.2 ii. Contention 15 (Including Subparts A & B) Contention 15, as restated by the Board, alleges that Detroit Edison (DTE) failed to comply with Appendix B to 10 C.F.R Part 50 to establish and implement its own quality assurance (QA) program when it entered into a contract with Black and Veatch (B&V) for the conduct of safety-related combined license (COL) application activities and to retain overall control of safety-related activities performed by B&V. This violation began in March 2007 and continued through at least February 2008. Further, DTE failed to complete internal audits of QA programmatic areas implemented for the Fermi 3 COL Application, and DTE also has failed to document trending of corrective actions to identify recurring conditions adverse to quality since the beginning of the Fermi Unit 3 project in March 2007. Contention 15A: These deficiencies adversely impact the quality of the safety related design information in the FSAR that is based on B&V’s tests, investigations, or other safetyrelated activities. Because the NRC may base its licensing decision on safety-related design information in the FSAR only if it has reasonable assurance of the quality of that information, it may not lawfully issue the COL until the deficiencies have been adequately corrected by the Applicant, or until the Applicant demonstrates that the deficiencies do not affect the quality of safety-related design information in the FSAR. Contention 15B: Although DTE claims that in February 2008 it adopted a QA program that conforms to Appendix B, DTE has failed to implement that program in the manner required to properly oversee the safety-related design activities of B&V. This demonstrates an ongoing lack of commitment on the part of DTE’s management to compliance with NRC QA regulations. The NRC cannot support a finding of reasonable assurance that the plant, as built, can and will be operated 1 Letter from Jack M.
