Based upon this information, the Secretary will establish an electronic docket for the hearing in this proceeding if the Secretary has not already established an electronic docket. Information about applying for a digital ID certificate is available on the NRC’s public Web site at http:// www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals/ getting-started.html. System requirements for accessing the ESubmittal server are detailed in the NRC’s ‘‘Guidance for Electronic Submission,’’ which is available on the agency’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 from the NRC’s Web site. Further information on the Webbased 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 hearing or petition for leave to intervene. Submissions should be in Portable Document Format (PDF) in accordance with 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:24 Aug 06, 2015 Jkt 235001 proceeding, so that the filer need not serve the documents 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. A person filing electronically using the NRC’s adjudicatory E-Filing system may seek assistance by contacting the NRC Meta System Help Desk through 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 tollfree call at 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 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. 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00083 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 home phone numbers in their filings, unless an NRC regulation or other law requires submission of such information. However, in some instances, a request to intervene will require including information on local residence in order to demonstrate a proximity assertion of interest in the proceeding.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that the Director, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation, has issued a director’s decision (ADAMS Accession No. ML15183A164) on a petition filed by the petitioner on June 18, 2012 (ADAMS Accession No. ML12171A409). The petition was supplemented on November 16, 2012, January 16, 2013, and February 6, 2013 (ADAMS Accession Nos. ML12325A748, ML13029A643, and ML13109A075, respectively). The petitioner requested that the NRC order SCE to submit a license amendment application for the design and installation of the SONGS, Units 2 and 3, replacement steam generators. As the basis of the request, the petitioner asserted that the licensee violated section 50.59 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘Changes, Tests, and Experiments,’’ when the steam generators for SONGS, VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:24 Aug 06, 2015 Jkt 235001 Units 2 and 3, were replaced in 2010 and 2011, without a license amendment request. On January 16, 2013, the petitioner met with the NRC’s Petition Review Board (PRB). The meeting provided the petitioner and the licensee an opportunity to provide additional information and to clarify issues cited in the petition. During the PRB meeting, the petitioner further requested that the NRC suspend SCE’s licenses until they are amended. The transcript for that meeting was treated as a supplement to the petition and is available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML13029A643. The NRC sent a copy of the proposed director’s decision to the petitioner and the licensee for comment on February 27, 2015 (ADAMS Accession Nos. ML15020A121 and ML15020A165, respectively). The petitioner and the licensee were asked to provide comments within 30 days on any part of the proposed director’s decision that was considered to be erroneous or any issues in the petition that were not addressed. Comments were received from the petitioner and are addressed in an attachment to the final director’s decision. The licensee had no comments on the proposed director’s decision; however, the licensee did provide a response to the petitioner’s comments. The NRC staff reviewed the response from the licensee and determined that, because the licensee’s comments are direct rebuttals to the petitioner’s comments and raised no concerns with the director’s decision, no changes to the director’s decision are required as a result of these comments. The Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation has determined that the requests for the NRC to order the licensee to submit a license amendment application for the design and installation of the SONGS, Units 2 and 3, replacement steam generators and to suspend SCE’s licenses until they are amended be denied. The reasons for this decision are explained in the director’s decision (DD–15–07) pursuant to 10 CFR 2.206, ‘‘Requests for action under this subpart,’’ of the Commission’s regulations. The NRC will file a copy of the director’s decision with the Secretary of the Commission for the Commission’s review in accordance with 10 CFR 2.206. As provided by this regulation, the director’s decision will constitute the final action of the Commission 25 days after the date of the decision unless the Commission, on its own motion, institutes a review of the director’s decision in that time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that the Director, 
Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation, has issued a director's decision 
(ADAMS Accession No. ML15183A164) on a petition filed by the petitioner 
on June 18, 2012 (ADAMS Accession No. ML12171A409). The petition was 
supplemented on November 16, 2012, January 16, 2013, and February 6, 
2013 (ADAMS Accession Nos. ML12325A748, ML13029A643, and ML13109A075, 
respectively).
    The petitioner requested that the NRC order SCE to submit a license 
amendment application for the design and installation of the SONGS, 
Units 2 and 3, replacement steam generators.
    As the basis of the request, the petitioner asserted that the 
licensee violated section 50.59 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR), ``Changes, Tests, and Experiments,'' when the 
steam generators for SONGS, Units 2 and 3, were replaced in 2010 and 
2011, without a license amendment request.
    On January 16, 2013, the petitioner met with the NRC's Petition 
Review Board (PRB). The meeting provided the petitioner and the 
licensee an opportunity to provide additional information and to 
clarify issues cited in the petition. During the PRB meeting, the 
petitioner further requested that the NRC suspend SCE's licenses until 
they are amended. The transcript for that meeting was treated as a 
supplement to the petition and is available in ADAMS under Accession 
No. ML13029A643.
    The NRC sent a copy of the proposed director's decision to the 
petitioner and the licensee for comment on February 27, 2015 (ADAMS 
Accession Nos. ML15020A121 and ML15020A165, respectively). The 
petitioner and the licensee were asked to provide comments within 30 
days on any part of the proposed director's decision that was 
considered to be erroneous or any issues in the petition that were not 
addressed. Comments were received from the petitioner and are addressed 
in an attachment to the final director's decision. The licensee had no 
comments on the proposed director's decision; however, the licensee did 
provide a response to the petitioner's comments. The NRC staff reviewed 
the response from the licensee and determined that, because the 
licensee's comments are direct rebuttals to the petitioner's comments 
and raised no concerns with the director's decision, no changes to the 
director's decision are required as a result of these comments.
    The Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation has 
determined that the requests for the NRC to order the licensee to 
submit a license amendment application for the design and installation 
of the SONGS, Units 2 and 3, replacement steam generators and to 
suspend SCE's licenses until they are amended be denied. The reasons 
for this decision are explained in the director's decision (DD-15-07) 
pursuant to 10 CFR 2.206, ``Requests for action under this subpart,'' 
of the Commission's regulations.
    The NRC will file a copy of the director's decision with the 
Secretary of the Commission for the Commission's review in accordance 
with 10 CFR 2.206. As provided by this regulation, the director's 
decision will constitute the final action of the Commission 25 days 
after the date of the decision unless the Commission, on its own 
motion, institutes a review of the director's decision in that time.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 28 day of July 2015.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
William M. Dean,
Director, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.
