This ITAAC was approved as part of the issuance of the combined license, NPF– 91, for this facility. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Brian Anderson, Senior Project Manager, Licensing Branch 4, Division of New Reactor Licensing, Office of New Reactors. [FR Doc. 2013–14307 Filed 6–14–13; 8:45 am] The NRC staff has determined that the inspections, tests, and analyses have been successfully completed, and that the specified acceptance criteria are met for Vogtle Electric Generating Plant, Unit 3, ITAAC E.2.5.04.05.05.01. This notice fulfills the staff’s obligations under 10 CFR 52.99(e)(1) to publish a notice in the Federal Register of the NRC staff’s determination of the successful completion of inspections, tests and analyses. The documentation of the NRC staff’s determination is in the ITAAC Closure Verification Evaluation Form (VEF), dated March 19, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13109A243). The VEF is a form that represents the NRC staff’s structured process for reviewing ICNs. The ICN presents a narrative description of how the ITAAC was completed, and the NRC’s ICN review process involves a determination on whether, among other things, (1) the ICN provides sufficient information, including a summary of the methodology used to perform the ITAAC, to demonstrate that the inspections, tests, and analyses have been successfully completed; (2) the ICN provides sufficient information to demonstrate that the acceptance criteria are met; and (3) any required inspections for the ITAAC have been completed and any ITAAC findings associated with the ITAAC have been closed. The NRC staff’s determination of the successful completion of this ITAAC is based on information available at this time and is subject to the licensee’s ability to maintain the condition that the acceptance criteria are met. If new information disputes the NRC staff’s determination, this ITAAC will be reopened as necessary. The NRC staff’s determination will be used to support a subsequent finding, pursuant to 10 CFR 52.103(g), at the end of construction that all acceptance criteria in the combined license are met. The ITAAC closure process is not finalized for this ITAAC until the NRC makes an affirmative finding under 10 CFR 52.103(g). Any future updates to the status of this ITAAC will be reflected on the NRC’s Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/reactors/ new-reactors/oversight/itaac.html.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The NRC is issuing a revision to an existing guide in the NRC’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information such as 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. II. Further Information Revision 2 of RG 1.137 endorses American National Standards Institute (ANSI), American Nuclear Society (ANS) (ANSI/ANS) Standard 59.51– 1997, ‘‘Fuel Oil Systems for SafetyRelated Emergency Diesel Generators,’’ (reaffirmed in October 2007), and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard D975–13, ‘‘Standard Specification for Diesel Fuel Oils,’’ with the exceptions stated in the regulatory positions. Both ANSI/ANS– 59.51–1997 and ASTM D975–13 describe methods the NRC considers acceptable for use in complying with NRC requirements for assuring the quality of fuel oil and fuel oil systems for emergency diesel generators used in nuclear power plants. The methods described in ANSI/ANS 59.51–1997 and ASTM D975–13 are consistent with NRC requirements derived from ‘‘General Design Criteria (GDC) 17, Electric Power Systems’’ in Appendix A to Part 50 of Title 10, of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), E:\FR\FM\17JNN1.SGM 17JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 116 / Monday, June 17, 2013 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,’’ and 10 CFR 50.55a. The 1979 revision to RG 1.137 endorsed the guidance in ANSI Standard N195–1976, ‘‘Fuel Oil Systems for Standby Diesel-Generators.’’ The ANSI standard was revised in 1989 and reformatted and revised in 1997 as ANSI/ANS–59.51–1997 with no change to RG 1.137. Revision 2 of RG 1.137 endorses the most current version of the ANSI/ANS standard. Revision 2 of RG 1.137 was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–1282 on July 5, 2012 (77 FR 39745) for a 60-day public comment period. The public comment period was extended until September 28, 2012 (77 FR 48177). Public comments were received and addressed by the NRC staff. These comments and the NRC staff responses are available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML12300A121. The NRC prepared a regulatory analysis for the development of DG– 1285 and it is available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML121090459. Revision 2 of RG 1.137 supersedes Revision 1 of RG 1.137, and represents the NRC staff’s guidance for future users and applications. Earlier versions of this regulatory guide, however, continue to be acceptable for those licensees whose licensing basis includes earlier versions of this regulatory guide, absent a licensee-initiated change to its licensing basis. Additional information on the staff’s use of this revised regulatory guide with respect to both current and future users and applications is set forth in the ‘‘Implementation’’ section of the revised regulatory guide. III. Backfitting and Issue Finality Issuance of this final regulatory guide 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. As discussed in the ‘‘Implementation’’ section of this regulatory guide, the NRC has no current intention to impose this regulatory guide on holders of current operating licenses or combined licenses. This regulatory guide may be applied to applications for operating licenses and combined licenses docketed by the NRC as of the date of issuance of the final regulatory guide, as well as future applications for operating licenses and combined licenses submitted after the issuance of the regulatory guide. Such action does not constitute backfitting as defined in 10 CFR 50.109(a)(1) or is otherwise inconsistent with the applicable issue finality provision in 10 VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:38 Jun 14, 2013 Jkt 229001 CFR Part 52, inasmuch as such applicants or potential applicants are not within the scope of entities protected by the Backfit Rule or the relevant issue finality provisions in Part 52.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The NRC is issuing a revision to an existing guide in the NRC's 
``Regulatory Guide'' series. This series was developed to describe and 
make available to the public information such as 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.

II. Further Information

    Revision 2 of RG 1.137 endorses American National Standards 
Institute (ANSI), American Nuclear Society (ANS) (ANSI/ANS) Standard 
59.51-1997, ``Fuel Oil Systems for Safety-Related Emergency Diesel 
Generators,'' (reaffirmed in October 2007), and American Society for 
Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard D975-13, ``Standard Specification 
for Diesel Fuel Oils,'' with the exceptions stated in the regulatory 
positions. Both ANSI/ANS-59.51-1997 and ASTM D975-13 describe methods 
the NRC considers acceptable for use in complying with NRC requirements 
for assuring the quality of fuel oil and fuel oil systems for emergency 
diesel generators used in nuclear power plants. The methods described 
in ANSI/ANS 59.51-1997 and ASTM D975-13 are consistent with NRC 
requirements derived from ``General Design Criteria (GDC) 17, Electric 
Power Systems'' in Appendix A to Part 50 of Title 10, of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (10 CFR),

[[Page 36279]]

``Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,'' and 10 
CFR 50.55a.
    The 1979 revision to RG 1.137 endorsed the guidance in ANSI 
Standard N195-1976, ``Fuel Oil Systems for Standby Diesel-Generators.'' 
The ANSI standard was revised in 1989 and reformatted and revised in 
1997 as ANSI/ANS-59.51-1997 with no change to RG 1.137. Revision 2 of 
RG 1.137 endorses the most current version of the ANSI/ANS standard.
    Revision 2 of RG 1.137 was issued with a temporary identification 
as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG-1282 on July 5, 2012 (77 FR 39745) for a 
60-day public comment period. The public comment period was extended 
until September 28, 2012 (77 FR 48177). Public comments were received 
and addressed by the NRC staff. These comments and the NRC staff 
responses are available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML12300A121.
    The NRC prepared a regulatory analysis for the development of DG-
1285 and it is available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML121090459.
    Revision 2 of RG 1.137 supersedes Revision 1 of RG 1.137, and 
represents the NRC staff's guidance for future users and applications. 
Earlier versions of this regulatory guide, however, continue to be 
acceptable for those licensees whose licensing basis includes earlier 
versions of this regulatory guide, absent a licensee-initiated change 
to its licensing basis. Additional information on the staff's use of 
this revised regulatory guide with respect to both current and future 
users and applications is set forth in the ``Implementation'' section 
of the revised regulatory guide.

III. Backfitting and Issue Finality

    Issuance of this final regulatory guide 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. As discussed in the ``Implementation'' section of this 
regulatory guide, the NRC has no current intention to impose this 
regulatory guide on holders of current operating licenses or combined 
licenses.
    This regulatory guide may be applied to applications for operating 
licenses and combined licenses docketed by the NRC as of the date of 
issuance of the final regulatory guide, as well as future applications 
for operating licenses and combined licenses submitted after the 
issuance of the regulatory guide. Such action does not constitute 
backfitting as defined in 10 CFR 50.109(a)(1) or is otherwise 
inconsistent with the applicable issue finality provision in 10 CFR 
Part 52, inasmuch as such applicants or potential applicants are not 
within the scope of entities protected by the Backfit Rule or the 
relevant issue finality provisions in Part 52.

Congressional Review Act

    This regulatory guide is a rule as designated in the Congressional 
Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801-808). However, the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) has not found it to be a major rule as designated in the 
Congressional Review Act.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 7th day of June, 2013.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Chief, Regulatory Guide Development Branch, Division of Engineering,
