SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Licensee Notification of Completion of ITAAC

    On May 31, 2013, Southern Nuclear Operating Company, Inc. (the 
licensee) submitted an ITAAC closure notification (ICN) under Sec.  
52.99(c)(1) of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), 
informing the NRC that the licensee has successfully performed the 
required inspections, tests, and analyses for ITAAC E.2.5.04.05.05.02, 
and that the specified acceptance criteria are met for Vogtle Electric 
Generating Plant, Unit 4 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13154A032). This ITAAC 
was approved as part of the issuance of the combined license, NPF-92, 
for this facility.

NRC Staff Determination of Completion of ITAAC

    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 
4, ITAAC E.2.5.04.05.05.02. 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 July 10, 2013 (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML13191A333). 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 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

[[Page 53485]]

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.
