Participants who believe that they have a good cause for not submitting documents electronically must file an exemption request, in accordance with 10 CFR 2.302(g), with their initial paper filing requesting authorization to continue to submit documents in paper format. Such filings must be submitted by: (1) First class mail addressed to the Office of the Secretary of the Commission, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555– 0001, Attention: Rulemaking and Adjudications Staff; or (2) courier, express mail, or expedited delivery service to the Office of the Secretary, Sixteenth Floor, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland, 20852, Attention: Rulemaking and Adjudications Staff.

Filing is considered complete by firstclass mail as of the time of deposit in the mail, or by courier, express mail, or expedited delivery service upon depositing the document with the provider of the service. A presiding officer, having granted an exemption request from using E-Filing, may require a participant or party to use E-Filing if the presiding officer subsequently determines that the reason for granting the exemption from use of E-Filing no longer exists. Documents submitted in adjudicatory proceedings will appear in the NRC’s electronic hearing docket which is available to the public at http://ehd1. nrc.gov/ehd/, unless excluded pursuant to an order of the Commission, or the presiding officer. Participants are requested not to include personal privacy information, such as social security numbers, home addresses, or home phone numbers in their filings, unless an NRC regulation or other law requires submission of such information.

Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC, et al., Docket Nos. 50–413 and 50–414, Catawba Nuclear Station, Units 1 and 2, York County, South Carolina Date of amendment request: February 17, 2014. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:34 Mar 17, 2014 Jkt 232001 Description of amendment request: The amendments revise Technical Specification (TS) Table 3.3.4–1, Remote Shutdown System Instrumentation and Controls as a result of an inoperable instrumentation function on Unit 2. Table 3.3.4–1 specifies requirements for Function 3.b., Decay Heat Removal via Steam Generators (SGs)—Reactor Coolant System (RCS) Cold Leg Temperature— Loop A and B as ‘‘1 per loop’’. Loop A of this function is presently inoperable on Unit 2 due to a failed resistance temperature detector (RTD). Loop B of this function is operable with a reliable maintenance history. The failed RTD on Loop A cannot be replaced in the present operating mode of Unit 2 (Mode 1). Therefore, Duke Energy requested the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approval to allow Unit 2 to remain in Mode 1 until such time that the failed RTD can be replaced. The replacement would occur in the next refueling outage or the next outage that would facilitate replacement, whichever occurs first. Date of issuance: February 27, 2014. Effective date: As of the date of issuance and shall be implemented within 30 days from the date of issuance. Amendment Nos.: 272 and 268. Renewed Facility Operating License Nos. NPF–35 and NPF–52: Amendments revised the licenses and the technical specifications. Public comments requested as to proposed no significant hazards consideration (NSHC): Yes. The NRC staff noticed the February 17, 2014, application in the Rock Hill, SC local newspaper, The Herald on Friday, February 21, 2014, and Saturday, February 22, 2014. The notice provided an opportunity to submit comments on the Commission’s proposed NSHC determination. No comments have been received. The Commission’s related evaluation of the amendment, finding of exigent circumstances, state consultation, and final NSHC determination are contained in a safety evaluation dated February 27, 2014.
