Sunshine Act Meeting Notice, 65259-65260 [2014-26211]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 212 / Monday, November 3, 2014 / Notices I. Introduction The NRC is granting an exemption from the provisions of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 52, Appendix D, Section III.B, ‘‘Design Certification Rule for the AP1000 Design, Scope, and Contents and issuing License Amendment No. 15 to COLs, NPF–93 and NPF–94, to the licensee. The exemption is required by Paragraph B.6.c of Section VIII, ‘‘Processes for Changes and Departures,’’ Appendix D to 10 CFR Part 52 to allow the licensee to depart from Tier 1 information. With the requested amendment, the licensee sought changes to the UFSAR Tier 1 and Appendix C to the COL. Part of the justification for granting the exemption was provided by the review of the amendment. Because the exemption is necessary in order to issue the requested license amendment, the NRC granted the exemption and issued the amendment concurrently, rather than in sequence. This included issuing a combined safety evaluation containing the NRC staff’s review of both the exemption request and the license amendment. The exemption met all applicable regulatory criteria set forth in 10 CFR 50.12, 10 CFR 52.7, and 52.63(b)(1). The license amendment was found to be acceptable as well. The combined safety evaluation is available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML14182A574. Identical exemption documents (except for referenced unit numbers and license numbers) were issued to the licensee for VCSNS Units 2 and 3 (COLs NPF–93 and NPF–94). These documents can be found in ADAMS under Accession Nos. ML14182A516 and ML14182A541, respectively. The exemption is reproduced (with the exception of abbreviated titles and additional citations) in Section II of this document. The amendment documents for COLs NPF–93 and NPF–94 are available in ADAMS under Accession Nos. ML14182A451 and ML14182A509, respectively. A summary of the amendment documents is provided in Section III of this document. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES II. Exemption Reproduced below is the exemption document issued to VCSNS, Units 2 and 3. It makes reference to the combined safety evaluation that provides the reasoning for the findings made by the NRC (and listed under Item 1) in order to grant the exemption: 1. In a letter dated July 2, 2013 and as supplemented by the letter dated September 26, 2013, South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (licensee) VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:37 Oct 31, 2014 Jkt 235001 requested from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (Commission) an exemption from the provisions of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 52, Appendix D, Section III.B, ‘‘Design Certification Rule for the AP1000 Design, Scope, and Contents,’’ as part of license amendment request (LAR 13–25), ‘‘Tier 1 Editorial and Consistency Changes.’’ For the reasons set forth in Section 3.1 of the NRC staff Safety Evaluation, which can be found in ADAMS under Accession No. ML14182A574, the Commission finds that: A. The exemption is authorized by law; B. the exemption presents no undue risk to public health and safety; C. the exemption is consistent with the common defense and security; D. special circumstances are present in that the application of the rule in this circumstance is not necessary to serve the underlying purpose of the rule; E. the special circumstances outweigh any decrease in safety that may result from the reduction in standardization caused by the exemption; and F. the exemption will not result in a significant decrease in the level of safety otherwise provided by the design. 2. Accordingly, the licensee is granted an exemption to the provisions of 10 CFR Part 52, Appendix D, Section III.B, to allow deviations from the certified Design Control Document (DCD) Tier 1 Figure 2.2.5–1, Tables; 2.6.3–4, 3.5–3, 3.5–7, 2.2.3–1, 3.5–1, 3.3–6, 2.7.1–4, 2.6.6–1, 2.2.3–4, 2.3.10–2, and 2.1.1–1, and Section 3.2, Item 1.e), as described in the licensee’s request dated July 2, 2013 and supplemented on September 26, 2013. This exemption is related to, and necessary for the granting of License Amendment No. 15, which is being issued concurrently with this exemption. 3. As explained in Section 5.0 of the NRC staff Safety Evaluation (ADAMS Accession No. ML14182A574), this exemption meets the eligibility criteria for categorical exclusion set forth in 10 CFR 51.22(c)(9). Therefore, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(b), no environmental impact statement or environmental assessment needs to be prepared in connection with the issuance of the exemption. 4. This exemption is effective as of July 31, 2014. III. License Amendment Request The request for the amendment and exemption was submitted by the letter dated July 2, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13189A285). The licensee supplemented this request by letter dated September 26, 2013 (ADAMS PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65259 Accession No. ML13273A394). The proposed license amendment request revises Figure 2.2.5–1, Tables; 2.6.3–4, 3.5–3, 3.5–7, 2.2.3–1, 3.5–1, 3.3–6, 2.7.1–4, 2.6.6–1, 2.2.3–4, 2.3.10–2, and 2.1.1–1, and Section 3.2, Item 1.e of Appendix C to the COLs. The Commission has determined for these amendments that the application complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s rules and regulations. The Commission has made appropriate findings as required by the Act and the Commission’s rules and regulations in 10 CFR Chapter I, which are set forth in the license amendment. A notice of consideration of issuance of amendment to facility operating license or combined license, as applicable, proposed no significant hazards consideration determination, and opportunity for a hearing in connection with these actions, was published in the Federal Register on October 1, 2013 (78 FR 60321). No comments were received during the 60day comment period. The Commission has determined that these amendments satisfy the criteria for categorical exclusion in accordance with 10 CFR 51.22(c)(9). Therefore, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(b), no environmental impact statement or environmental assessment need be prepared for these amendments. IV. Conclusion Using the reasons set forth in the combined safety evaluation, the staff granted the exemption and issued the amendment that the licensee requested on July 2, 2013, and supplemented by letter dated September 26, 2013. The exemption and amendment were issued on July 31, 2014 as part of a combined package to the licensee (ADAMS Accession No. ML14182A432). Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 27th day of October 2014. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Denise L. McGovern, Senior Project Manager, Licensing Branch 4, Division of New Reactor Licensing, Office of New Reactors.
