Vogtle Unit 3 Combined License, 69459-69460 [2013-27727]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 223 / Tuesday, November 19, 2013 / Notices information collection, the form also includes a certification statement for the respondent to sign, attesting that the information provided on the form is complete and accurate to the best of his or her knowledge. The proposed new version of the form will allow respondents to electronically sign the form by checking a box. TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Use of Information on NTSB Form 6120.1 As described in its May 7, 2013 notice, the NTSB generally uses the information provided on Form 6120.1 to determine the facts, conditions, and circumstances for aircraft accident prevention activities and for statistical purposes. The NTSB typically receives several notifications for each accident or incident, but only requests completion of Form 6120.1 once the NTSB has determined it will pursue an investigation into the event. The NTSB utilizes a ‘‘party process,’’ as described in 49 CFR part 831, for its investigations. This process involves the NTSB’s invitation to outside entities to assist with an investigation as a ‘‘party.’’ The NTSB extends party status to those organizations that can provide the necessary technical assistance to the investigation. The investigator-in-charge (IIC), for example, often confers party status to the operator, aircraft, systems, and powerplant manufacturers, and labor organizations involved because of the accident circumstances. Everyone involved in an NTSB investigation, including the parties, depend on accurate information contained in NTSB Form 6120.1 while conducting the investigation and determining which areas warrant focus and attention. Overall, the NTSB considers Form 6120.1 to be critical to its statutory function of investigation accidents and incidents, and subsequently issuing safety recommendations in an effort to prevent future accidents and incidents. The NTSB has carefully considered whether this collection of information on Form 6120.1 is duplicative of any other agency’s collections of information. The NTSB is unaware of any form the FAA disseminates that solicits the same information Form 6120.1 requires. However, the NTSB notes some operators may choose to provide a voluntary report to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in accordance with the Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS). NASA will not accept ASRS reports concerning aircraft accidents; however, it is possible that an operator could report an incident to the NTSB, as defined in 49 CFR 830.2, and VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:21 Nov 18, 2013 Jkt 232001 contemporaneously submit an ASRP report to NASA. The NTSB notes completion of NTSB Form 6120.1 is not voluntary, but is required by 49 CFR 830.15(a). The NTSB, in general, will not accept partially completed forms; NTSB investigators will exercise their discretion in requesting completion of a copy of Form 6120.1 a respondent submits that is partially completed. In many cases, the NTSB recognizes not all fields will apply to each event; therefore, the NTSB will not require completion of inapplicable fields. Currently, the NTSB accepts paper copies of Form 6120.1 sent via postal mail or facsimile, as well as electronic copies of Form 6120.1 that respondents submit via electronic mail. For electronically submitted copies, the NTSB notes its public Web site contains a fill-able version of Form 6120.1. As described above, the updated version of the form will include a box the respondent can check to electronically sign the form; therefore, respondents need not scan a copy of the form to send it via electronic mail, because respondents now have the option of completing the form by typing answers within the electronic version and sending it via electronic mail. The NTSB has carefully reviewed the form to ensure that it has used plain, coherent, and unambiguous terminology in its request for information. The NTSB estimates that respondents will spend approximately 60 minutes in completing the form. The NTSB estimates that approximately 1,800 respondents per year will complete the form, but notes that this number may vary, given the unpredictable nature of the frequency of aviation accidents and incidents.

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 Unit 3 Combined License, ITAAC 
E.3.8.05.01.01. 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 October 21, 2013 
(ADAMS Accession No. ML13294A349). 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

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.
