Download as PDF pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 45992 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 146 / Tuesday, July 30, 2013 / Notices included in Appendix C of each of the VEGP, Units 3 and 4, COLs. The Tier 2 changes modified sections of the UFSAR related to the design information and code requirements regarding the supports used in the Turbine Building. These Tier 2 changes require modifications to particular Tier 1 information located in the ‘‘Design Description’’ portion of Section 3.3 ‘‘Buildings’’ of the UFSAR. In this section the licensee sought to revise the original design of only using eccentrically braced framing in the nonseismic portion of the Turbine Building. Instead the licensee plans to use a mixed bracing system consisting of both eccentrically and concentrically braced framing. The staff determined that these changes did not alter any relevant conclusions made for the AP1000 standard design. The Commission has determined for these amendments that the application complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s rules and regulations. The Commission has made appropriate findings as required by the Act and the Commission’s rules and regulations in 10 CFR Chapter I, which are set forth in the license amendment. A notice of consideration of issuance of amendment to facility operating license or combined license, as applicable, proposed no significant hazards consideration determination, and opportunity for a hearing in connection with these actions, was published in the Federal Register on March 4, 2013 (78 FR 14137). The February 15, 2013, supplement revised the original no significant hazards consideration determination, but this revision was captured in the March 4, 2013 Federal Register Notice. No other supplements were received after the acceptance was noticed so the published no significant hazards consideration determination was not affected and no comments were received during the 60-day comment period. The Commission has determined that these amendments satisfy the criteria for categorical exclusion in accordance with 10 CFR 51.22. Therefore, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(b), no environmental impact statement or environmental assessment need be prepared for these amendments. IV. Conclusion Using the reasons set forth in the combined safety evaluation, the staff granted the exemption and issued the amendment that the licensee requested on February 8, 2013, and supplemented VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:32 Jul 29, 2013 Jkt 229001 by letter dated February 15, 2013. The exemption and amendment were issued on May 21, 2013 as part of a combined package to the licensee. (ADAMS Accession No. ML13121A359). Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 23rd day of July 2013.
