Download as PDF ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 90 / Friday, May 9, 2014 / Notices requirements for accessing the ESubmittal server are detailed in the NRC’s ‘‘Guidance for Electronic Submission,’’ which is available on the NRC’s public Web site at http:// www.nrc.gov/site-help/esubmittals.html. Participants may attempt to use other software not listed on the Web site, but should note that the NRC’s E-Filing system does not support unlisted software, and the NRC Meta System Help Desk will not be able to offer assistance in using unlisted software. If a participant is electronically submitting a document to the NRC in accordance with the E-Filing rule, the participant must file the document using the NRC’s online, Web-based submission form. In order to serve documents through the Electronic Information Exchange System, users will be required to install a Web browser plug-in obtained from the NRC’s Web site. Further information on the Web-based submission form, including the installation of the Web browser plug-in, is available on the NRC’s public Web site at http:// www.nrc.gov/site-help/esubmittals.html. Once a participant has obtained a digital ID certificate and a docket has been created, the participant can then submit a request for a hearing or petition for leave to intervene. Submissions should be in Portable Document Format (PDF) in accordance with the NRC guidance available on the NRC’s public Web site at http:// www.nrc.gov/site-help/esubmittals.html. A filing is considered complete at the time the documents are submitted through the NRC’s E-Filing system. To be timely, an electronic filing must be submitted to the E-Filing system no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the due date. Upon receipt of a transmission, the E-Filing system time-stamps the document and sends the submitter an email notice confirming receipt of the document. The E-Filing system also distributes an email notice that provides access to the document to the NRC’s Office of the General Counsel, and any others who have advised the Office of the Secretary that they wish to participate in the proceeding, so that the filer need not serve the document on those participants separately. Therefore, applicants and other participants (or their counsel or representative) must apply for and receive a digital ID certificate before a hearing request/ petition to intervene is filed so that they can obtain access to the document via the E-Filing system. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:53 May 08, 2014 Jkt 232001 A person filing electronically using the NRC’s adjudicatory E-Filing system may seek assistance by contracting the NRC Meta System Help Desk thorough the ‘‘Contact Us’’ link located on the NRC’s public Web site at http:// www.nrc/gov/site-help/esubmittals.html, by email to MSHD.Resource@nrc.gov, or by a toll free call to 1–866–672–7640. The NRC Meta System Help Desk is available between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, excluding government holidays. Participants who believe that they have a good cause for not submitting documents electronically must file an extension 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. Participants filing a document in this manner are responsible for serving the document on all other participants. Filing is considered complete by first-class 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 the reason for the exemption from use of EFiling 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. With respect to copyrighted works, except for limited excerpts that serve the purpose of the adjudicatory filings and would constitute a Fair Use application, participants are requested not to include PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 26783 copyrighted materials in their submissions. If a person other than the licensee requests a hearing, that person shall set forth with particularity the manner in which his/her interest is adversely affected by this Order and shall address the criteria set forth in 10 CFR 2.309(d) and (f). In the absence of any request for hearing, or written approval of an extension of time in which to request a hearing, the provisions specified in Section V above shall be final 30 days from the date of this Order without further order or proceedings. If an extension of time for requesting a hearing has been approved, the provisions specified in Section V shall be final when the extension expires if a hearing request has not been received. Dated this 1st day of May 2014. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Leonard D. Wert, Deputy Regional Administrator for Operations.

The applicant submitted this application in accordance with Part 52 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, ‘‘Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ Subpart B, ‘‘Standard Design Certifications.’’ The application included the ESBWR DCD and the ESBWR PRA. On March 9, 2011, the staff issued the final safety evaluation report (ADAMS Accession Number ML103470210) and final design approval (ADAMS Accession Number ML110540310) for the ESBWR standard design. On March 24, 2011, the NRC published the proposed rule in the Federal Register (76 FR 16549). In late 2011, while the NRC staff was preparing the final rule, issues were identified with the ESBWR steam dryer, a non-safety related component. These issues called into question certain conclusions in the staff’s safety review. Publication of NUREG–1966 was delayed while the steam dryer design methodology was under review. The NRC issued requests for additional information (RAIs). Resolution of these issues required additional analyses by the applicant and review by the NRC staff in order for the NRC staff to conclude the design is acceptable for certification. Responses to all RAIs were received in December 2013. An Advanced Supplemental FSER was issued to the ACRS on February 12, 2014 which became publicly available on April 17, 2014 (ADAMS Accession No. ML14043A134).

The application included the ESBWR DCD and the ESBWR PRA.
    On March 9, 2011, the staff issued the final safety evaluation 
report (ADAMS Accession Number ML103470210) and final design approval 
(ADAMS Accession Number ML110540310) for the ESBWR standard design. On
