Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 113 / Wednesday, June 14, 2017 / Notices 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 §§ 50.12, 52.7, and Section VIII.A.4 of appendix D to 10 CFR part 52. The license amendment was found to be acceptable as well. The combined safety evaluation is available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML17072A125. Identical exemption documents (except for referenced unit numbers and license numbers) were issued to SCE&G for VCSNS Units 2 and 3 (COLs NPF– 93 and NPF–94). The exemption documents for VCSNS Units 2 and 3 can be found in ADAMS under Accession Nos. ML17072A117 and ML17072A118, 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. ML17072A111 and ML17072A114, respectively. A summary of the amendment documents is provided in Section III of this document. mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES II. Exemption Reproduced below is the exemption document issued to VCSNS Units 2 and Unit 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 an application dated September 29, 2016, SCE&G requested from the Commission an exemption to allow departures from Tier 1 information in the certified DCD incorporated by reference in 10 CFR part 52, appendix D, as part of license amendment request 15–11, ‘‘Boric Acid Storage Tank Suction Point ITAAC Changes.’’ For the reasons set forth in Section 3.1 of the NRC staff’s Safety Evaluation, which can be found in ADAMS under Accession No. ML17072A125, 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:36 Jun 13, 2017 Jkt 241001 F. the exemption will not result in a significant decrease in the level of safety otherwise provided by the design. 2. Accordingly, SCE&G is granted an exemption from the certified DCD Tier 1 information related to the boric acid storage tank (BAST) available volume at the suction point, chemical and volume control system (CVS) makeup flow rate, and BAST installation, as described in SCE&G’s request dated September 29, 2016. This exemption is related to, and necessary for the granting of License Amendment No. 73, which is being issued concurrently with this exemption. 3. As explained in Section 5.0 of the NRC staff’s Safety Evaluation (ADAMS Accession No. ML17072A125), 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 the date of its issuance. III. License Amendment Request By letter dated September 29, 2016 (ADAMS Accession No. ML16273A557), SCE&G requested that the NRC amend the COLs for VCSNS, Units 2 and 3, COLs NPF–93 and NPF–94. The proposed amendment is described in Section I of this Federal Register Notice. 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 December 20, 2016 (81 FR 92872). No comments were received during the 30day comment period. The Commission has determined that these amendments satisfy the criteria for categorical exclusion in accordance with 10 CFR 51.22. Therefore, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(b), no environmental impact statement or environmental assessment need be prepared for these amendments. PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27295 IV. Conclusion Using the reasons set forth in the combined safety evaluation, the staff granted the exemption and issued the amendment that SCE&G requested on September 29, 2016. The exemption and amendment were issued on May 24, 2017, as part of a combined package to SCE&G (ADAMS Accession No. ML17072A069). Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 5th day of June 2017.
