The NRC posts all comment submissions at http:// www.regulations.gov as well as entering the comment submissions into ADAMS. The NRC does not routinely edit comment submissions to remove identifying or contact information. If you are requesting or aggregating comments from other persons for submission to the NRC, then you should inform those persons not to include identifying or contact information that they do not want to be publicly disclosed in their comment submission. Your request should state that the NRC does not routinely edit comment submissions to remove such information before making the comment submissions available to the public or entering the comment submissions into ADAMS. II. Background The Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation (NRR), Division of Risk Analysis (DRA) completed a generic bounding risk analysis (ADAMS Accession No. ML14114A556) that concluded that the issues associated with the inoperability of a Structure, System, or Component due to a tornadogenerated missile are likely to be of low risk significance, and do not require immediate plant shutdown. Based on the conclusions of the NRR/DRA analysis, the staff issued EGM 15–002, dated June 10, 2015. In its implementation of EGM 15–002, the NRC staff found that additional refinements are needed to address reportability, enforcement of long standing design issues, and the duration of the enforcement discretion resulting from all the non-conforming conditions being assessed together. As a result, the staff issued EGM 15–002, Revision 1, dated February 7, 2017. This revised ISG adds additional information for inspection and review staff to support implementation of the changes made in EGM 15–002, Revision 1. This revised draft ISG provides an approach to extending the discretion period. The draft revisions to this ISG also revise provisions concerning reportability requirements under § 50.72 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), discusses enforcement discretion for long-term design non conformances, and reinforces the need for licensees to follow the corrective action program when dispositioning the impact of identified tornado missile nonconformances on operability. This revised ISG will expire with the expiration of EGM 15–002, Revision 1. VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:10 Feb 22, 2017 Jkt 241001 III. Proposed Action By this action, the NRC is requesting public comments on draft ISG–16–001, Revision 1. This draft ISG provides an approach to extending the discretion period, revises reportability requirements under 10 CCFR 50.72, discusses enforcement discretion for long-term design non conformances, and reinforces the need for licensees to follow their corrective action program when dispositioning the impact of identified tornado missile nonconformances on operability. IV. Backfit Discussion Issuance of this ISG in final form would not constitute backfitting as defined in 10 CFR 50.109 (the Backfit Rule). As discussed in the ‘‘Backfitting’’ section of draft DSS–ISG- 2016–001, Revision 1, this ISG contains guidance for NRC staff for implementing EGM– 15–002. This ISG does not constitute backfitting as defined in the Backfit Rule and is not otherwise inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52, and the NRC staff did not prepare a backfit analysis. This is because this ISG requires no response by licensees, and concerns only NRC staff implementation of enforcement discretion pursuant to EGM–15–0002.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    By letter dated September 8, 2016, DOE submitted to the NRC an 
application to amend the license, technical specifications, and the 
final safety analysis report, for the Fort St. Vrain independent spent 
fuel storage installation, located in Platteville, Colorado (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML16258A179). Materials License No. SNM-2504 authorizes 
the licensee to receive, store, and transfer spent nuclear fuel from 
the decommissioned FSV

Nuclear Generating Station. The proposed amendment would revise the 
licensee delegation of authority in the license, the technical 
specifications, and the final safety analysis report. These documents 
currently delegate authority under the license to the Manager, DOE 
Idaho Operations Office. This amendment would replace that reference 
with the Deputy Manager, Idaho Cleanup Project in each of the 
documents.
    In a letter to DOE dated December 9, 2016, the NRC notified DOE 
that the application was acceptable to begin a technical review (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML16347A129). The NRC's Office of Nuclear Materials 
Safety and Safeguards has docketed this application under Docket No. 
72-09. If the NRC approves the amendment, the approval will be 
documented in an amendment to NRC Materials License No. SNM-2504. The 
Commission will approve the license amendment if it determines that the 
request complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic 
Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and the NRC's rules and regulations, 
and make findings consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act 
and part 51 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). 
These findings will be documented in a safety evaluation report.

II. Opportunity To Request a Hearing

    The Commission may issue either a notice of hearing or a notice of 
proposed action and opportunity for hearing in accordance with 10 CFR 
72.46(b)(1) or, if a determination is made that the amendment does not 
present a genuine issue as to whether public health and safety will be 
significantly affected, take immediate action on the amendment in 
accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(2), and provide notice of the action 
taken and an opportunity for interested persons to request a hearing on 
whether the action should be rescinded or modified.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 14th day of February 2017.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
