Download as PDF 68308 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 220 / Friday, November 14, 2014 / Notices II. Discussion As discussed in Section 9.4 of the final Supplement 51 to the GEIS, the NRC staff determined that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for Callaway are not so great that preserving the option of license renewal for energy-planning decisionmakers would be unreasonable. This recommendation is based on: (1) The analysis and findings in the GEIS; (2) information provided in the environmental report and other documents submitted by Union Electric Company; (3) consultation with Federal, state, local, and Tribal agencies; (4) the NRC staff’s independent environmental review; and (5) consideration of public comments received during the scoping process and on the draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 5th day of November, 2014. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Brian D. Wittick, Chief, Projects Branch 2, Division of License Renewal, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.

The NRC staff has developed LR–ISG– 2013–01 to address loss of coating or lining integrity for internal coatings applied to the internal surfaces of piping, piping components, heat exchangers, and tanks within the scope of license renewal. On January 10, 2014 (79 FR 1904), the NRC requested public comments on draft LR–ISG–2013–01 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13262A442).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

Background

    The NRC issues LR-ISGs to communicate insights and lessons learned 
and to address emergent issues not covered in license renewal guidance 
documents, such as the GALL Report and SRP-LR. In this way, the NRC 
staff and stakeholders may use the guidance in an LR-ISG document 
before it is incorporated into a formal license renewal guidance 
document revision. The NRC staff issues LR-ISGs in accordance with the 
LR-ISG Process, Revision 2 (ADAMS Accession No. ML100920158), for which 
a notice of availability was published in the Federal Register on June 
22, 2010 (75 FR 35510).
    The NRC staff has developed LR-ISG-2013-01 to address loss of 
coating or lining integrity for internal coatings applied to the 
internal surfaces of piping, piping components, heat exchangers, and 
tanks within the scope of license renewal. On January 10, 2014 (79 FR 
1904), the NRC requested public comments on draft LR-ISG-2013-01 (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML13262A442).
    These changes address new recommendations related to managing loss 
of coating integrity for coatings applied to the internal surfaces of 
piping, piping components, heat exchangers, and tanks within the scope 
of part 54 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), 
``Requirements for Renewal of Operating Licenses for Nuclear Power 
Plants.'' The NRC published Revision 2 of the SRP-LR and the GALL 
Report in December 2010, and they are available in ADAMS under 
Accession Nos. ML103490036 and ML103490041, respectively.
    The NRC received comments from the Nuclear Energy Institute by 
letter dated February 24, 2014 (ADAMS Accession No. ML14058A181), and 
Daniel L. Cox, PE, by letter dated February 7, 2014 (ADAMS Accession 
No. ML14055A250). No other comments were submitted. The NRC considered 
these comments in developing the final LR-ISG. Detailed responses to 
the comments can be found in Appendix E of the final LR-ISG.
    The final LR-ISG-2013-01 is approved for NRC staff and stakeholder 
use and will be incorporated into NRC's next formal license renewal 
guidance document revision.

Backfitting and Issue Finality

    Issuance of this final LR-ISG does not constitute backfitting as 
defined in 10 CFR 50.109 (the Backfit Rule) and is not otherwise 
inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR Part 52, 
``Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants.'' 
As discussed in the ``Backfitting and Issue Finality'' section of the 
final LR-ISG-2013-01, the LR-ISG is directed to holders of operating 
licenses or combined licenses who are currently in the license renewal 
process. The LR-ISG is not directed to holders of operating licenses or 
combined licenses until they apply for license renewal. The LR-ISG is 
also not directed to licensees who already hold renewed operating or 
combined licenses.
