Company, LLC to Exelon FitzPatrick, LLC. II. Discussion The NRC utilizes information that is currently contained in multiple documents (NUREG–1536, NUREG– 1567, and numerous ISGs) to assist the NRC staff in its reviews of spent fuel storage applications. The NRC’s intent in combining and updating these documents into one document is to assist the NRC staff in its reviews by promoting a consistent regulatory review of a SAR for an ISFSI or a MRS license, or for a CoC; by promoting quality and uniformity of these reviews across each technical discipline; presenting a basis for the review’s scope; identifying acceptable approaches to meeting regulatory requirements; and suggesting possible evaluation findings that can be used in the safety evaluation report for applications submitted under part 72 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations. By this action, the NRC is requesting public comments on draft NUREG– 2215. The NRC invites comments on all portions of this SRP that the commenter thinks the NRC should consider. The NRC will make a final determination regarding issuance of the NUREG after it considers any public comments received in response to this request.

ORDER APPROVING DIRECT TRANSFER OF LICENSE AND APPROVING CONFORMING 
AMENDMENT

I.

    Exelon Generation Company, LLC (Exelon Generation) is the owner 
and operator of the James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant 
(FitzPatrick) and the holder of Renewed Facility Operating License 
No. DPR-59 and the general license for the FitzPatrick Independent 
Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI). FitzPatrick is a General 
Electric boiling-water reactor located in Oswego County, New York.

II.

    By application dated July 24, 2017 (Agencywide Documents Access 
and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML17206A395), Exelon 
Generation, and its wholly owned subsidiary, Exelon FitzPatrick, LLC 
(Exelon FitzPatrick), jointly requested, pursuant to Title 10 of the 
Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Section 50.80, ``Transfer of 
licenses,'' that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) 
consent to the direct transfer of the FitzPatrick renewed facility 
operating license and the FitzPatrick ISFSI general license from 
Exelon Generation to Exelon FitzPatrick. Future references to 
FitzPatrick include the general license for the FitzPatrick ISFSI. 
In response to the request by Exelon Generation and Exelon 
FitzPatrick for consent to the direct transfer of the FitzPatrick 
renewed facility operating license and the FitzPatrick ISFSI general 
license, the NRC published a notice entitled, ``James A. FitzPatrick 
Nuclear Power Plant; Consideration of Approval of Transfer of 
License and Conforming Amendment,'' in the Federal Register on 
August 17, 2017 (82 FR 39139). The NRC received no comments and no 
hearing requests.
    Under 10 CFR 50.80, no license, or any right thereunder, shall 
be transferred, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control 
of the license, unless the NRC gives its consent in writing. Upon 
review of the information in the application, and other information 
before the NRC, and relying upon the representations and agreements 
contained in the application, the NRC staff has determined that 
Exelon FitzPatrick is qualified to hold the FitzPatrick renewed 
facility operating license and the FitzPatrick ISFSI general 
license. Following completion of the license transfer, Exelon 
FitzPatrick would acquire ownership of FitzPatrick. Exelon 
Generation would continue to be responsible for the operation and 
maintenance of FitzPatrick. The NRC staff has also determined that 
the transfer of these licenses is otherwise consistent with the 
applicable provisions of law, regulations, and orders issued by the 
NRC, pursuant thereto, subject to the condition set forth below.
    Upon review of the application for a conforming license 
amendment to reflect this transfer, the NRC staff has determined 
that the application for the conforming license amendment complies 
with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 
1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission's rules and 
regulations set forth in 10 CFR chapter I; the facility will operate 
in conformity with the application, the provisions of the Act, and 
the rules and regulations of the Commission; there is reasonable 
assurance that the activities authorized by this amendment can be 
conducted without endangering the health and safety of the public 
and that such activities will be conducted in compliance with the 
Commission's regulations; the issuance of this amendment will not be 
inimical to the common defense and security or to the health and 
safety of the public; and the issuance of this amendment will be in 
accordance with 10 CFR part 51 of the Commission's regulations and 
all applicable requirements will have been satisfied.
    The findings set forth above are supported by an NRC safety 
evaluation dated November 7, 2017 (ADAMS Accession No. ML17240A069).

III.

    Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 161b, 161i, 161o, and 184 of 
the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), 42 U.S.C. 
2201(b), 2201(i), 2201(o), and 2234; and 10 CFR 50.80, it is hereby 
ordered that the application regarding the proposed direct license 
transfer is approved, subject to the following condition:

    Prior to the completion of the license transfer, Exelon 
FitzPatrick, LLC shall provide satisfactory documentary evidence to 
the Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation that it has 
obtained the appropriate amount of insurance required of a licensee 
under 10 CFR part 140 and 10 CFR 50.54(w).

    It is further ordered that, consistent with 10 CFR 2.1315(b), 
the license be changed, as indicated in Enclosure 2 to the cover 
letter forwarding this Order, to conform the license to reflect that 
the subject direct license transfer is approved. The amendment shall 
be issued and made effective at the time the proposed direct license 
transfer is completed.
    It is further ordered that, after receipt of all required 
regulatory approvals of the proposed direct license transfer, Exelon 
FitzPatrick shall inform the Director of the Office of Nuclear 
Reactor Regulation in writing of such receipt, and of the date of 
closing of the transfer, no later than 2 business days prior to the
