The NRC Form 3 describes certain responsibilities and rights of employers and employees who engage in NRCregulated activities, including how employees can report violations or other safety concerns directly to the NRC. Section 19.11(e)(1) of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), states that licensees shall prominently post the most recent version of NRC Form 3, ‘‘Notice to Employees’’ within 30 days of receiving the revised NRC Form 3 from the Commission. In a 1997 rulemaking, 10 CFR 19.11 was amended to incorporate a reference to the latest version of NRC Form 3. This eliminated the need to revise the CFR whenever NRC Form 3 is changed, which had been the previous practice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that the NRC has issued renewed Facility Operating License Nos. NPF–76 and NPF–80 to STP Nuclear Operating Company (licensee), the operator of STP, Units 1 and 2. Renewed Facility Operating License Nos. NPF–76 and NPF–80 authorize operation of STP by the licensee at reactor core power levels not in excess of 3,853 megawatts thermal for each unit, in accordance with the provisions of the STP renewed license and technical specifications. The NRC’s ROD that supports the NRC’s decision to renew Facility Operating License Nos. NPF–76 and NPF–80 is available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML17138A276 and was published in the Federal Register (FR) on September 25, 2017 (82 FR 44666). As discussed in the ROD and the final supplemental environmental impact statement (FSEIS) for STP, Supplement 48 to NUREG–1437, ‘‘Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants Regarding South Texas Project, Units 1 and 2, Final Report’’ dated November 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13322A890), the NRC has considered a range of reasonable alternatives that PO 00000 Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 46311 included natural gas combined-cycle (NGCC); supercritical pulverized coal; combination of wind, solar, and NGCC; and the no action alternative. The FSEIS documents the environmental review, including the determination that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for STP are not so great that preserving the option of license renewal for energy planning decisionmakers would be unreasonable. South Texas Project, Units 1 and 2, are pressurized water reactors located in Bay City, TX (90 miles SW of Houston, TX). The application for the renewed licenses, ‘‘License Renewal Application, South Texas Project, Unit 1 and Unit 2, Facility Operating License Nos. NPF–76 and NPF–80,’’ dated October 25, 2010 (ADAMS Package Accession No. ML103010256), as supplemented by letters dated through May 2, 2017, complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the NRC’s regulations. As required by the Act and the NRC’s regulations in Chapter 1 of title10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), the NRC has made appropriate findings, which are set forth in the license. A public notice of the proposed issuance of the renewed license and an opportunity for a hearing was published in the Federal Register on January 13, 2011 (76 FR 2426). No adjudicatory matters are pending before the Commission or the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board Panel regarding the STP license renewal application. For further details with respect to this action, see: (1) STP Nuclear Operating Company license renewal application for STP dated October 25, 2010 (ADAMS Package Accession No. ML103010256), as supplemented by letters through May 2, 2017; (2) the NRC’s safety evaluation report published on June 8, 2017 (ADAMS Package Accession No. ML17142A263); (3) the NRC’s final environmental impact statement (NUREG–1437, Supplement 48) for STP published on November 30, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13322A890); and (4) the NRC’s ROD (ADAMS Accession No. ML17138A276).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The purpose of this notice is to inform all licensees that NRC Form 
3, ``Notice to Employees,'' has been revised. The NRC Form 3 describes 
certain responsibilities and rights of employers and employees who 
engage in NRC-regulated activities, including how employees can report 
violations or other safety concerns directly to the NRC. Section 
19.11(e)(1) of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), 
states that licensees shall prominently post the most recent version of 
NRC Form 3, ``Notice to Employees'' within 30 days of receiving the 
revised NRC Form 3 from the Commission.
    In a 1997 rulemaking, 10 CFR 19.11 was amended to incorporate a 
reference to the latest version of NRC Form 3. This eliminated the need 
to revise the CFR whenever NRC Form 3 is changed, which had been the 
previous practice. The final rule published on September 15, 1997 (62 
FR 48165) indicated that the NRC would inform licensee of future 
changes to NRC Form 3 by an administrative letter and, in addition, the 
availability of any new versions would be noticed in the Federal 
Register. Administrative letters were a type of generic communication 
issued to inform addressees of specific regulatory or administrative 
information but were discontinued in September 1999. As such, in lieu 
of an administrative letter, this revision and future revisions will be 
publicized through an alternative electronic means (i.e. Web site 
notice, social networking service, etc.) to alert all licensees of the 
new revisions, as well as in the Federal Register.
    A new version of NRC Form 3 was issued in August 2017, to make a
