SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Licensee Notification of Completion of ITAAC On May 30, 2014, South Carolina Electric and Gas Inc. (the licensee) submitted an ITAAC closure notification (ICN) under § 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, PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 tests, and analyses for ITAAC 2.1.03.11, and that the specified acceptance criteria are met for Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station Unit 2 (ADAMS Accession No. ML14150A424). This ITAAC was approved as part of the issuance of the combined license, NPF–93, 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 Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station Unit 2, ITAAC 2.1.03.11. 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 June 10, 2014 (ADAMS Accession No. ML14161A578). 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 E:\FR\FM\05AUN1.SGM 05AUN1 45496 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 150 / Tuesday, August 5, 2014 / Notices 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 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background On July 11, 2013 (78 FR 41810), the NRC published for public comment the proposed revisions to this section of the SRP. The staff made changes to the proposed revision after consideration of comments received. A summary of the comments and the staff’s disposition of the comments are available in a separate document, ‘‘Response to Public Comments on Draft SRP Section 9.1.4’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML13318A795). The changes to this SRP chapter reflect current staff review methods and PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 practices based on lessons learned from NRC’s reviews of design certification and combined license applications completed since the last revision of this chapter. This chapter has been updated primarily to reflect operating experience associated with IE Bulletin 84–03, ‘‘Refueling Cavity Water Seal’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML082700127). II. Backfitting and Issue Finality Issuance of this final SRP section does not constitute backfitting as defined in § 50.109 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) (the Backfit Rule) and is not otherwise inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52. The staff’s position is based upon the following considerations: 1. The SRP positions do not constitute backfitting, inasmuch as the SRP is internal guidance directed at the NRC staff with respect to their regulatory responsibilities. The SRP provides guidance to the staff on how to review an application for NRC regulatory approval in the form of licensing. Changes in internal staff guidance are not matters for which either nuclear power plant applicants or licensees are protected under either the Backfit Rule or the issue finality provisions of 10 CFR part 52. 2. The NRC staff has no intention to impose the SRP positions on current licensees and regulatory approvals either now or in the future. The staff does not intend to impose or apply the positions described in the SRP to existing (already issued) licenses and regulatory approvals. Hence, the issuance of a final SRP—even if considered guidance which is within the purview of the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52—need not be evaluated as if it were a backfit or as being inconsistent with issue finality provisions. If, in the future, the staff seeks to impose a position in the SRP on holders of already issued holders of licenses SRP in a manner which does not provide issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision, then the staff must make the showing as set forth in the Backfit Rule or address the criteria for avoiding issue finality as described applicable issue finality provision. 3. Backfitting and issue finality do not—with limited exceptions not applicable here—protect current or future applicants. Applicants and potential applicants are not, with certain exceptions, protected by either the Backfit Rule or any issue finality provisions under 10 CFR part 52. This is because neither the Backfit Rule nor the issue finality E:\FR\FM\05AUN1.SGM 05AUN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Licensee Notification of Completion of ITAAC

    On May 30, 2014, South Carolina Electric and Gas 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 2.1.03.11, and that 
the specified acceptance criteria are met for Virgil C. Summer Nuclear 
Station Unit 2 (ADAMS Accession No. ML14150A424). This ITAAC was 
approved as part of the issuance of the combined license, NPF-93, 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 Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station Unit 
2, ITAAC 2.1.03.11. 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 June 10, 2014 (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML14161A578). 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

[[Page 45496]]

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 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.
