Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 236 / Monday, December 11, 2017 / Notices daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES changes were to accommodate increased flow to the turbine building main sumps during condensate polishing system rinsing operations. SNC also requested related exemptions from the Commission’s regulations. Part of the justification for granting the exemption was provided by the review of the amendment. Because the exemption is necessary in order to issue the requested license amendment, the NRC granted the exemption and issued the amendment concurrently, rather 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. ML17272A280. Identical exemption documents (except for referenced unit numbers and license numbers) were issued to the licensee for VEGP Units 3 and 4 (COLs NPF–91 and NPF–92). The exemption documents for VEGP Units 3 and 4 can be found in ADAMS under Accession Nos. ML17272A278 and ML17272A279, 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–91 and NPF–92 are available in ADAMS under Accession Nos. ML17272A275 and ML17272A276, respectively. A summary of the amendment documents is provided in Section III of this document. II. Exemption Reproduced below is the exemption document issued to VEGP Units 3 and Unit 4. 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 a letter dated December 22, 2015, as revised by letters dated July 27, 2016, May 19, 2017, and the response to the staff’s request for additional information dated August 31, 2017, Southern Nuclear Operating Company requested from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) an exemption to allow departures from Tier 1 information in the certified DCD incorporated by reference in 10 CFR part 52, appendix D, ‘‘Design Certification Rule for the AP1000 Design,’’ as part of LAR 15–019, ‘‘Addition of New Turbine Building Sump Pumps.’’ VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Dec 08, 2017 Jkt 244001 For the reasons set forth in Section 3.1 of the NRC staff’s safety evaluation, which can be found at ADAMS Accession No. ML17272A280, 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 F. the exemption will not result in a significant decrease in the level of safety otherwise provided by the design. 2. Accordingly, the licensee is granted an exemption from the certified DCD Tier 1 information, with corresponding changes to Appendix C of the Facility Combined Licenses as described in the request dated December 22, 2015, as revised by letters dated July 27, 2016, May 19, 2017, and the response to the staff’s request for additional information dated August 31, 2017. This exemption is related to, and necessary for, the granting of License Amendment Nos. 96 and 95, which is being issued concurrently with this exemption. 3. As explained in Section 6.0 of the NRC staff’s Safety Evaluation (ADAMS Accession No. ML17272A280, 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 December 22, 2015, as revised by letters dated July 27, 2016, May 19, 2017, and the response to the staff’s request for additional information dated August 31, 2017 (ADAMS Accession Nos. ML15356A655, ML16209A477, ML17139D394, and ML17243A459, respectively), the licensee requested that the NRC amend the COLs for VEGP, Units 3 and 4, COLs NPF–91 and NPF–92. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58225 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 COL, 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 July 5, 2017 (82 FR 31089). No comments were received during the 30-day 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. IV. Conclusion Using the reasons set forth in the combined safety evaluation, the staff granted the exemption and issued the amendment that the licensee requested on December 22, 2015, as revised by letters dated July 27, 2016, May 19, 2017, and the response to the staff’s request for additional information dated August 31, 2017. The exemption and amendment were issued on November 6, 2017, as part of a combined package to the licensee (ADAMS Accession No. ML17272A272). Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 6th day of December 2017. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Jennifer L. Dixon-Herrity, Chief, Licensing Branch 4, Division of New Reactor Licensing, Office of New Reactors.
