Detroit Edison Company, Docket No. 50–341, Fermi 2, Monroe County, Michigan Date of application for amendment: November 13, 2012. Brief description of amendment: The amendment revises surveillance requirements (SRs) which currently require operating the ventilation system for at least 10 continuous hours with the heaters operating every 31 days for SR 3.6.4.3.1 and 31 days on a staggered test basis for SR 3.7.3.1. The SRs would be changed to require at least 15 continuous minutes of ventilation system operation every 31 days and include technical specification (TS) bases changes that summarize and clarify the purpose of the TS in accordance with TS Task Force Traveler (TSTF) 522, ‘‘Revise Ventilation System Surveillance Requirements to operate for 10 Hours per Month.’’ Date of issuance: May 13, 2013. Effective date: As of the date of issuance and shall be implemented within 60 days. Amendment No.: 192. Facility Operating License No. NPF– 43: Amendment revised the Technical Specifications and License. Date of initial notice in Federal Register: January 22, 2013 (78 FR 4471).

Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment would modify PNPP’s Technical Specifications (TS) Table 3.3.5.1–1, ‘‘Emergency Core Cooling System (ECCS) Instrumentation,’’ footnote (a) to require ECCS instrumentation to be operable only when the associated ECCS VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:46 May 24, 2013 Jkt 229001 subsystems are required to be operable. This proposed change is consistent with Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC)approved TS Task Force (TSTF) change traveler TSTF–275–A, Revision 0. Additionally, the proposed amendment would add exceptions to the diesel generator (DG) surveillance requirements (SRs) for TS 3.8.2, ‘‘AC Sources—Shutdown,’’ to eliminate the requirement that the DG be capable of responding to ECCS initiation signals while the ECCS subsystems are not required to be operable. This proposed change is consistent with NRC-approved TSTF–300–A, Revision 0. Date of issuance: May 6, 2013. Effective date: As of the date of issuance and shall be implemented within 60 days.

The indirect transfer will occur as a result of a proposed transaction whereby ES, Inc., the current ultimate parent holding company of ES Services, Duratek, and MSC, would be directly acquired by Rockwell Holdco, Inc.
