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: I. Introduction The NRC is issuing a new guide in the NRC’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the agency’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. Regulatory Guide 5.27, Revision 1 was issued for comment as Draft Regulatory Guide (DG) 5038. The NRC developed this regulatory guide to describe a method that the NRC staff considers acceptable to implement the search requirement for concealed SNM applied to personnel exiting a material access area MAA. For holders of a reactor license under part 50 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) (Ref. 1), ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,’’ a combined license under 10 CFR part 52, ‘‘Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ or a fuel cycle facility license under 10 CFR part 76, ‘‘Certification of Gaseous Diffusion Plants,’’ having the need to possess or use SNM within their facility, the NRC typically has included in their license a condition granting a general license to use SNM under 10 CFR part 70, ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Special Nuclear Material.’’ The RG applies to facilities that contain SNM of a type and quantity to require an MAA. An MAA is any location which contains special nuclear material, within a vault or a building, the roof, walls, and floor of which each constitute a physical barrier. This RG is being revised because it was out-of-date with current, related E:\FR\FM\07AUN1.SGM 07AUN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    In accordance with Sec.  51.118 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations, the NRC is making available final Supplement 46 to the 
GEIS regarding the renewal of NextEra operating license NPF-86 for an 
additional 20 years of operation for Seabrook. Draft Supplement 46 to 
the GEIS was noticed by the NRC in the Federal Register on August 5, 
2011 (76 FR 47612), and noticed by the Environmental Protection Agency 
on August 12, 2011 (76 FR 50214). The public comment period on draft 
Supplement 46 to the GEIS ended on October 26, 2011. In April 2013, a 
supplement to draft Supplement 46 was published. The supplement to 
draft Supplement 46 was noticed by the Environmental Protection Agency 
on May 3, 2013 (78 FR 26027). The end of the comment period for the 
supplement to draft Supplement 46 was on June 30, 2013. The comments 
received on the draft Supplement 46 published in 2011 and supplement to 
the draft Supplement in 2013 are addressed in final Supplement 46 to 
the GEIS. Final Supplement 46 to the GEIS is available as indicated in 
the ADDRESSES section of this document.

II. Discussion

    As discussed in Section 9.4 of the final Supplement 46 to the GEIS, 
the NRC determined that the adverse environmental impacts of license 
renewal for Seabrook 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 NextEra; (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.
