I. Obtaining Information and Submitting Comments II. Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendments to Facility Operating Licenses and Combined Licenses and Proposed No Significant Hazards Consideration Determination The Commission has made a proposed determination that the following amendment requests involve no significant hazards consideration. Under the Commission’s regulations in section 50.92 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), this means that operation of the facility in accordance with the proposed amendment would not (1) involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated, or (2) create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated; or (3) involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. The basis for this proposed determination for each amendment request is shown below. The Commission is seeking public comments on this proposed determination. Any comments received within 30 days after the date of publication of this notice will be considered in making any final determination. Normally, the Commission will not issue the amendment until the expiration of 60 days after the date of publication of this notice. The Commission may issue the license amendment before expiration of the 60day period provided that its final determination is that the amendment involves no significant hazards consideration. In addition, the Commission may issue the amendment prior to the expiration of the 30-day comment period if circumstances change during the 30-day comment period such that failure to act in a timely way would result, for example in derating or shutdown of the facility. If the Commission takes action prior to the expiration of either the comment period or the notice period, it will publish in the Federal Register a notice of issuance. If the Commission makes a final no significant hazards consideration determination, any hearing will take place after issuance. The Commission expects that the need amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 A.

A. Opportunity To Request a Hearing and Petition for Leave To Intervene Within 60 days after the date of publication of this notice, any persons (petitioner) whose interest may be affected by this action may file a request for a hearing and petition for leave to intervene (petition) with respect to the action. Petitions shall be filed in accordance with the Commission’s ‘‘Agency Rules of Practice and Procedure’’ in 10 CFR part 2. Interested persons should consult a current copy of 10 CFR 2.309. The NRC’s regulations are accessible electronically from the NRC Library on the NRC’s website at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doccollections/cfr/. Alternatively, a copy of the regulations is available at the NRC’s Public Document Room, located at One White Flint North, Room O1–F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland 20852. If a petition is filed, the Commission or a presiding officer will rule on the petition and, if appropriate, a notice of a hearing will be issued. As required by 10 CFR 2.309(d) the petition should specifically explain the reasons why intervention should be permitted with particular reference to the following general requirements for standing: (1) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; (2) the nature of the petitioner’s right under the Act to be made a party to the proceeding; (3) the nature and extent of the petitioner’s property, financial, or other interest in the proceeding; and (4) the possible effect of any decision or order which may be entered in the proceeding on the petitioner’s interest. In accordance with 10 CFR 2.309(f), the petition must also set forth the specific contentions which the petitioner seeks to have litigated in the proceeding. Each contention must consist of a specific statement of the issue of law or fact to be raised or controverted. In addition, the petitioner must provide a brief explanation of the bases for the contention and a concise statement of the alleged facts or expert opinion which support the contention and on which the petitioner intends to rely in proving the contention at the hearing. The petitioner must also provide references to the specific sources and documents on which the petitioner intends to rely to support its position on the issue. The petition must include sufficient information to show that a genuine dispute exists with the applicant or licensee on a material issue of law or fact. Contentions must be limited to matters within the scope of E:\FR\FM\14AUN1.SGM 14AUN1 amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 40344 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 157 / Tuesday, August 14, 2018 / Notices the proceeding. The contention must be one which, if proven, would entitle the petitioner to relief. A petitioner who fails to satisfy the requirements at 10 CFR 2.309(f) with respect to at least one contention will not be permitted to participate as a party. Those permitted to intervene become parties to the proceeding, subject to any limitations in the order granting leave to intervene. Parties have the opportunity to participate fully in the conduct of the hearing with respect to resolution of that party’s admitted contentions, including the opportunity to present evidence, consistent with the NRC’s regulations, policies, and procedures. Petitions must be filed no later than 60 days from the date of publication of this notice. Petitions and motions for leave to file new or amended contentions that are filed after the deadline will not be entertained absent a determination by the presiding officer that the filing demonstrates good cause by satisfying the three factors in 10 CFR 2.309(c)(1)(i) through (iii). The petition must be filed in accordance with the filing instructions in the ‘‘Electronic Submissions (E-Filing)’’ section of this document. If a hearing is requested, and the Commission has not made a final determination on the issue of no significant hazards consideration, the Commission will make a final determination on the issue of no significant hazards consideration. The final determination will serve to establish when the hearing is held. If the final determination is that the amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration, the Commission may issue the amendment and make it immediately effective, notwithstanding the request for a hearing. Any hearing would take place after issuance of the amendment. If the final determination is that the amendment request involves a significant hazards consideration, then any hearing held would take place before the issuance of the amendment unless the Commission finds an imminent danger to the health or safety of the public, in which case it will issue an appropriate order or rule under 10 CFR part 2. A State, local governmental body, Federally-recognized Indian Tribe, or agency thereof, may submit a petition to the Commission to participate as a party under 10 CFR 2.309(h)(1). The petition should state the nature and extent of the petitioner’s interest in the proceeding. The petition should be submitted to the Commission no later than 60 days from the date of publication of this notice. The petition must be filed in accordance VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:13 Aug 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 with the filing instructions in the ‘‘Electronic Submissions (E-Filing)’’ section of this document, and should meet the requirements for petitions set forth in this section, except that under 10 CFR 2.309(h)(2) a State, local governmental body, or Federallyrecognized Indian Tribe, or agency thereof does not need to address the standing requirements in 10 CFR 2.309(d) if the facility is located within its boundaries. Alternatively, a State, local governmental body, Federallyrecognized Indian Tribe, or agency thereof may participate as a non-party under 10 CFR 2.315(c). If a hearing is granted, any person who is not a party to the proceeding and is not affiliated with or represented by a party may, at the discretion of the presiding officer, be permitted to make a limited appearance pursuant to the provisions of 10 CFR 2.315(a). A person making a limited appearance may make an oral or written statement of his or her position on the issues but may not otherwise participate in the proceeding. A limited appearance may be made at any session of the hearing or at any prehearing conference, subject to the limits and conditions as may be imposed by the presiding officer. Details regarding the opportunity to make a limited appearance will be provided by the presiding officer if such sessions are scheduled. B. Electronic Submissions (E-Filing) All documents filed in NRC adjudicatory proceedings, including a request for hearing and petition for leave to intervene (petition), any motion or other document filed in the proceeding prior to the submission of a request for hearing or petition to intervene, and documents filed by interested governmental entities that request to participate under 10 CFR 2.315(c), must be filed in accordance with the NRC’s E-Filing rule (72 FR 49139; August 28, 2007, as amended at 77 FR 46562; August 3, 2012). The EFiling process requires participants to submit and serve all adjudicatory documents over the internet, or in some cases to mail copies on electronic storage media. Detailed guidance on making electronic submissions may be found in the Guidance for Electronic Submissions to the NRC and on the NRC website at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/ e-submittals.html. Participants may not submit paper copies of their filings unless they seek an exemption in accordance with the procedures described below. To comply with the procedural requirements of E-Filing, at least 10 days prior to the filing deadline, the PO 00000 Frm 00133 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 participant should contact the Office of the Secretary by email at Hearing.Docket@nrc.gov, or by telephone at 301–415–1677, to (1) request a digital identification (ID) certificate, which allows the participant (or its counsel or representative) to digitally sign submissions and access the E-Filing system for any proceeding in which it is participating; and (2) advise the Secretary that the participant will be submitting a petition or other adjudicatory document (even in instances in which the participant, or its counsel or representative, already holds an NRC-issued digital ID certificate). Based upon this information, the Secretary will establish an electronic docket for the hearing in this proceeding if the Secretary has not already established an electronic docket. Information about applying for a digital ID certificate is available on the NRC’s public website at http:// www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals/ getting-started.html. Once a participant has obtained a digital ID certificate and a docket has been created, the participant can then submit adjudicatory documents. Submissions must be in Portable Document Format (PDF). Additional guidance on PDF submissions is available on the NRC’s public website at http://www.nrc.gov/ site-help/electronic-sub-ref-mat.html. A filing is considered complete at the time the document is submitted through the NRC’s E-Filing system. To be timely, an electronic filing must be submitted to the E-Filing system no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the due date. Upon receipt of a transmission, the EFiling system time-stamps the document and sends the submitter an email notice confirming receipt of the document. The E-Filing system also distributes an email notice that provides access to the document to the NRC’s Office of the General Counsel and any others who have advised the Office of the Secretary that they wish to participate in the proceeding, so that the filer need not serve the document on those participants separately. Therefore, applicants and other participants (or their counsel or representative) must apply for and receive a digital ID certificate before adjudicatory documents are filed so that they can obtain access to the documents via the E-Filing system. A person filing electronically using the NRC’s adjudicatory E-Filing system may seek assistance by contacting the NRC’s Electronic Filing Help Desk through the ‘‘Contact Us’’ link located on the NRC’s public website at http:// www.nrc.gov/site-help/esubmittals.html, by email to E:\FR\FM\14AUN1.SGM 14AUN1 amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 157 / Tuesday, August 14, 2018 / Notices MSHD.Resource@nrc.gov, or by a tollfree call at 1–866–672–7640. The NRC Electronic Filing Help Desk is available between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, excluding government holidays. Participants who believe that they have a good cause for not submitting documents electronically must file an exemption request, in accordance with 10 CFR 2.302(g), with their initial paper filing stating why there is good cause for not filing electronically and requesting authorization to continue to submit documents in paper format. Such filings must be submitted by: (1) First class mail addressed to the Office of the Secretary of the Commission, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555–0001, Attention: Rulemaking and Adjudications Staff; or (2) courier, express mail, or expedited delivery service to the Office of the Secretary, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852, Attention: Rulemaking and Adjudications Staff. Participants filing adjudicatory documents in this manner are responsible for serving the document on all other participants. Filing is considered complete by first-class mail as of the time of deposit in the mail, or by courier, express mail, or expedited delivery service upon depositing the document with the provider of the service. A presiding officer, having granted an exemption request from using E-Filing, may require a participant or party to use E-Filing if the presiding officer subsequently determines that the reason for granting the exemption from use of E-Filing no longer exists. Documents submitted in adjudicatory proceedings will appear in the NRC’s electronic hearing docket which is available to the public at https:// adams.nrc.gov/ehd, unless excluded pursuant to an order of the Commission or the presiding officer. If you do not have an NRC-issued digital ID certificate as described above, click cancel when the link requests certificates and you will be automatically directed to the NRC’s electronic hearing dockets where you will be able to access any publicly available documents in a particular hearing docket. Participants are requested not to include personal privacy information, such as social security numbers, home addresses, or personal phone numbers in their filings, unless an NRC regulation or other law requires submission of such information. For example, in some instances, individuals provide home addresses in order to demonstrate proximity to a facility or site. With respect to copyrighted works, except for limited excerpts that serve the purpose VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:13 Aug 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 of the adjudicatory filings and would constitute a Fair Use application, participants are requested not to include copyrighted materials in their submission.

Arizona Public Service Company, et al., Docket Nos. STN 50–528, STN 50–529, and STN 50–530, Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station, Unit Nos. 1, 2, and 3, Maricopa County, Arizona Date of amendment request: July 31, 2015, as supplemented by letters dated April 11, 2016; November 3, 2017; May 18, 2018; and June 1, 2018. Publiclyavailable versions are in ADAMS under Accession Nos. ML15218A300, ML16102A463, ML17307A188, ML18138A480, and ML18152B874, respectively. Description of amendment request: The amendments would modify the technical specification (TS) requirements related to Completion Times (CTs) for Required Actions to provide the option to calculate longer, risk-informed CTs. The methodology for using the Risk Informed Completion Time (RICT) Program is described in Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) topical report NEI 06–09, ‘‘Risk-Informed Technical Specifications Initiative 4b, Risk-Managed Technical Specifications (RMTS) Guidelines,’’ Revision 0–A (ADAMS Accession No. ML12286A322), which was approved by the NRC on May 17, 2007. The license amendment request (LAR) was originally noticed in the Federal Register on December 8, 2015 (80 FR 76317). The licensee originally proposed to adopt, with plant-specific variations, Technical Specifications Task Force (TSTF) Traveler TSTF–505, Revision 1, ‘‘Provide Risk-Informed Extended Completion Times—RITSTF [Risk Informed TSTF] Initiative 4b’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML111650552). By letter dated November 15, 2016 (ADAMS Accession No. ML16281A021), the NRC staff informed the TSTF of its decision to suspend NRC approval of TSTF–505, Revision 1, because of concerns identified during the review of plantspecific LARs for adoption of the traveler. The NRC staff’s letter also stated that it would continue reviewing applications already received and sitespecific proposals to address the staff’s PO 00000 Frm 00134 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40345 concerns. Although the scope of the amendment request has not changed, the basis for the amendments will no longer rely on TSTF–505. This notice is being reissued in its entirety to include the revised description of the amendment request. The proposed no significant hazards consideration determination is identical to the one published in the Federal Register on December 8, 2015. Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed change permits the use of RICTs provided the associated risk is assessed and managed in accordance with the NRC-accepted RICT Program. The proposed use of RICTs does not involve a significant increase in the probability of an accident previously evaluated because the change only affects TS Conditions, Required Actions and CTs associated with risk informed technical specifications and does not involve changes to the plant, its modes of operation, or TS mode applicability. The proposed license amendment references regulatory commitments to achieve the baseline PRA [probabilistic risk assessment] risk metrics specified in the NRC model evaluation. The changes proposed by regulatory commitments will be implemented under the requirements of 10 CFR 50.59 without the need for prior NRC approval. The proposed change does not increase the consequences of an accident because the accident mitigation functions of the affected systems, structures, or components (SSCs) are not changed. Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. 2. Does the proposed change create the possibility or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed change permits the use of RICTs provided the associated risk is assessed and managed in accordance with the NRC-accepted RICT Program. The proposed use of RICTs does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated because the change only affects TS Conditions, Required Actions and CTs associated with risk informed technical specifications. The proposed change does not involve a physical alteration of the plant and does not involve installation of new or different kind of equipment. The proposed license amendment references regulatory commitments to achieve the baseline PRA risk metrics specified in the NRC model evaluation. The changes proposed by E:\FR\FM\14AUN1.SGM 14AUN1 40346 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 157 / Tuesday, August 14, 2018 / Notices regulatory commitments will be implemented under the requirements of 10 CFR 50.59 without the need for prior NRC approval. The proposed change does not alter the accident mitigation functions of the affected SSCs and does not introduce new or different SSC failure modes than already evaluated. Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. The proposed change permits the use of RICTs provided the risk levels associated with inoperable equipment within the scope of the RICT program are assessed and managed in accordance with the NRC approved RICT Program. The proposed change implements a risk-informed Configuration Risk Management Program (CRMP) to assure that adequate margins of safety are maintained. Application of these new specifications and the CRMP considers cumulative effects of multiple systems or components being out of service and does so more effectively than the current TS. In this regard, the implementation of the CRMP is considered an improvement in safety. Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee’s analysis and, based on that review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the requested amendments involves no significant hazards consideration. Attorney for licensee: Michael G. Green, Senior Regulatory Counsel, Pinnacle West Capital Corporation, P.O. Box 52034, Mail Station 8695, Phoenix, Arizona 85072–2034. NRC Branch Chief: Robert J. Pascarelli. DTE Electric Company, Docket No. 50– 341, Fermi 2, Monroe County, Michigan Date of amendment request: March 14, 2018. A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18073A137. Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment modifies the technical specification definition of ‘‘Shutdown Margin’’ (SDM) to require calculation of the SDM at a reactor moderator temperature of 68 degrees Fahrenheit (°F) per hour or a higher temperature that represents the most reactive state throughout the operating cycle. This change is needed to address new boiling water reactor (BWR) fuel designs, which may be more reactive at shutdown temperatures above 68 °F. Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:13 Aug 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed change revises the definition of SDM. SDM is not an initiator to any accident previously evaluated. Accordingly, the proposed change to the definition of SDM has no effect on the probability of any accident previously evaluated. SDM is an assumption in the analysis of some previously evaluated accidents and inadequate SDM could lead to an increase in consequences for those accidents. However, the proposed change revises the SDM definition to ensure that the correct SDM is determined for all fuel types at all times during the fuel cycle. As a result, the proposed change does not adversely affect the consequences of any accident previously evaluated. Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. 2. Does the proposed change create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed change revises the definition of SDM. The change does not involve a physical alteration of the plant (i.e., no new or different type of equipment will be installed) or a change in the methods governing normal plant operations. The change does not alter assumptions made in the safety analysis regarding SDM. Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. The proposed change revises the definition of SDM. The proposed change does not alter the manner in which safety limits, limiting safety system settings or limiting conditions for operation are determined. The proposed change ensures that the SDM assumed in determining safety limits, limiting safety system settings or limiting conditions for operation is correct for all BWR fuel types at all times during the fuel cycle. Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee’s analysis and based on this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are satisfied.

A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18172A315. Description of amendment request: The amendments would revise the Emergency Action Levels (EALs) for CNS, MNS, ONS, BNP, HNP, and RNP consistent with Emergency Preparedness Frequently Asked Questions (EPFAQs) 2015–013 (EAL HG1.1) and 2016–002 (EALs CA6.1 and SA9.1 (SA8.1 for BNP)). The amendments would revise the EALs for HNP and RNP consistent with EPFAQ 2015–014 (EAL HS6.1). Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed changes to EALs HG1.1, CA6.1, SA9.1 (SA8.1 for BNP), and HS6.1 do not reduce the capability to meet the emergency planning requirements established in 10 CFR 50.47 and 10 CFR [Part] 50, Appendix E. The proposed changes do not reduce the functionality, performance, or capability of Duke Energy’s Emergency Response Organization (ERO) to respond in mitigating the consequences of any design basis accident. The proposed changes do not involve any physical changes to plant E:\FR\FM\14AUN1.SGM 14AUN1 amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 157 / Tuesday, August 14, 2018 / Notices equipment or systems, nor do they alter the assumptions of any accident analyses. The proposed changes do not adversely affect accident initiators or precursors nor do they alter the design assumptions, conditions, and configuration or the manner in which the plants are operated and maintained. The proposed changes do not adversely affect the ability of Structures, Systems, or Components (SSCs) to perform their intended safety functions in mitigating the consequences of an initiating event within the assumed acceptance limits. There is no impact on the source term or pathways assumed in accidents previously assumed. No analysis assumptions are violated and there are no adverse effects on the factors that contribute to offsite or onsite dose as the result of an accident. Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. 2. Does the proposed change create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed changes to EALs HG1.1, CA6.1, SA9.1 (SA8.1 for BNP), and HS6.1 do not involve any physical changes to plant systems or equipment. The proposed changes do not involve the addition of any new plant equipment. The proposed changes will not alter the design configuration, or method of operation of plant equipment beyond its normal functional capabilities. All Duke Energy ERO functions will continue to be performed as required. The proposed changes do not create any new credible failure mechanisms, malfunctions, or accident initiators. Therefore, the proposed changes do not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. Margin of safety is related to the confidence in the ability of the fission product barriers to perform their design functions during and following an accident. These barriers include the fuel cladding, the reactor coolant system, and the containment system. The proposed changes to EALs HG1.1, CA6.1, SA9.1 (SA8.1 for BNP), and HS6.1 do not alter or exceed a design basis or safety limit. There is no change being made to safety analysis assumptions, safety limits, or limiting safety system settings that would adversely affect plant safety as a result of the proposed changes. There are no changes to setpoints or environmental conditions of any SSC or the manner in which any SSC is operated. Margins of safety are unaffected by the proposed changes. The applicable requirements of 10 CFR 50.47 and 10 CFR [Part] 50, Appendix E will continue to be met. Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety.

A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18152A922. Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment would revise the PNP Technical Specification (TS) 3.3.5, ‘‘Diesel Generator (DG)— Undervoltage Start (UV Start),’’ Surveillance Requirement (SR) 3.3.5.2a by adding a channel calibration requirement for the combined time delay setpoints for the degraded voltage sensing relay and the degraded voltage time delay relay. Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed amendment would revise a TS SR to include, for each degraded voltage channel, calibration of the time delay setpoint for the degraded voltage sensing relay in combination with the setpoint for the time delay relay. The minimum time delay setpoint in the revised TS SR would be long enough to override any brief voltage disturbances. The maximum time delay setpoint in the revised TS SR would be short enough to not exceed the maximum time delays assumed in the PNP Final Safety Analysis Report accident analyses for the operation of safety related equipment and to not result in failure of safety related equipment due to sustained degraded voltage conditions. Therefore, safety related loads would be available to perform their required safety functions under these conditions. The proposed change does not adversely affect accident initiators or precursors, and does not affect the design assumptions, conditions, or configuration of the plant, or the manner in which the plant is operated or maintained. Therefore, the proposed amendment does not involve a significant increase in the PO 00000 Frm 00136 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40347 probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. 2. Does the proposed amendment create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed amendment would revise a TS SR to include, for each degraded voltage channel, calibration of the time delay setpoint for the degraded voltage sensing relay in combination with the time delay setpoint for the time delay relay. The conduct of surveillance tests on safety related plant equipment is a means of assuring that the equipment is capable of performing its functions that are credited in the safety analyses for the facility. The proposed amendment would not affect the operation of safety related equipment assumed in accident analyses, and would not create any new failure mechanisms, malfunctions, or accident initiators not considered in the design and licensing bases. Therefore, the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any previously evaluated has not been created. 3. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. The proposed amendment would revise a TS SR to include, for each degraded voltage channel, calibration of the time delay setpoint for the degraded voltage sensing relay in combination with the time delay setpoint for the time delay relay. The conduct of surveillance tests on safety related plant equipment is a means of assuring that the equipment is capable of maintaining the margin of safety established in the safety analyses for the facility. The proposed amendment would not introduce changes to limits established in the accident analyses. The minimum time delay setpoint in the revised TS SR would be long enough to override any brief voltage disturbances. The maximum time delay setpoint in the revised TS SR would be short enough to not exceed the maximum time delays assumed in the PNP Final Safety Analysis Report accident analyses for the operation of safety related equipment and to not result in failure of safety related equipment due to sustained degraded voltage conditions. Therefore, the proposed amendment does not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee’s analysis and, based on this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are satisfied.

A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18166A197. Description of amendment request: The amendments would revise the technical specification (TS) requirements associated with the average power range monitors (APRMs). Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The APRM system and the RPS [reactor protection system] are not initiators of any accidents previously evaluated. As a result, the proposed change does not affect the probability of any accident previously evaluated. The APRM system and the RPS functions act to mitigate the consequences of accidents previously evaluated. The reliability of the APRM system and the RPS is not significantly affected by removing the gain adjustment requirement on the APRM channels when the APRMs are calibrated VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:13 Aug 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 conservatively with respect to the calculated heat balance. This is because the actual core thermal power at which the reactor will automatically trip is lower, thereby increasing the margin to the core thermal limits and the limiting safety system settings assumed in the safety analyses. The consequences of an accident during the adjustment of the APRM instrumentation are no different from those during the existing surveillance testing period or the existing time allowed to restore the instruments to operable status. As a result, the ability of the APRM system and the RPS to mitigate any accident previously evaluated is not significantly affected. Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. 2. Does the proposed change create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed changes do not alter the protection system designs, create new failure modes, or change any modes of operation. The proposed change does not involve a physical alteration of the plant; no new or different kind of equipment will be installed. Consequently, there are no new initiators that could result in a new or different kind of accident. Therefore, the proposed changes do not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. The margin of safety provided by the APRM system and the RPS is to ensure that the reactor is shut down automatically when plant parameters exceed the setpoints for the system. Any reduction in the margin of safety resulting from the adjustment of the APRM channels while continuing operation is considered to be offset by delaying a plant shutdown (i.e., a transient) for a short time with the APRM system, the primary indication of core power and an input to the RPS, not calibrated. Additionally, the short time period required for adjustment is consistent with the time allowed by TS to restore the core power distribution parameters to within limits and is acceptable based on the low probability of a transient or design basis accident occurring simultaneously with inaccurate APRM channels. The proposed changes do not alter setpoints or limits established or assumed by the accident analyses. The TS continue to require operability of the RPS functions, which provide core protection for postulated reactivity insertion events occurring during power operating conditions consistent with the plant safety analyses. Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee’s analysis and, based on this review, it appears that the three PO 00000 Frm 00137 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the requested amendments involve no significant hazards consideration. Attorney for licensee: Tamra Domeyer, Associate General Counsel, Exelon Generation Company, LLC, 4300 Winfield Road, Warrenville, IL 60555. NRC Branch Chief: David J. Wrona. Exelon Generation Company, LLC, Docket Nos. 50–373 and 50–374, LaSalle County Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2, LaSalle County, Illinois Date of amendment request: April 19, 2018. A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18157A123. Description of amendment request: The amendments would revise licenses and the technical specifications (TSs) as follows: • Division 3 Battery Surveillance Testing The proposed amendments would revise TS 3.8.4, ‘‘DC SourcesOperating,’’ and TS 3.8.6, ‘‘Battery Parameters,’’ by removing the Mode restrictions for performance of TS surveillance requirements (SRs) 3.8.4.3 and 3.8.6.6 for the Division 3 direct current (DC) electrical power subsystem battery. The Division 3 DC electrical power subsystem feeds emergency DC loads associated with the high pressure core spray (HPCS) system. Surveillance Requirement 3.8.4.3 verifies that the battery capacity is adequate for the battery to perform its required functions. Surveillance Requirement 3.8.6.6 verifies battery capacity is greater than or equal to (≥) 80 percent of the manufacturer’s rating when subjected to a performance discharge test (or a modified performance discharge test). The proposed amendments would remove these Mode restrictions for the Division 3 battery, allowing performance of SRs 3.8.4.3 and 3.8.6.6 for the Division 3 battery during Mode 1 or 2, potentially minimizing impact on HPCS unavailability. Eliminating the requirement to perform SRs 3.8.4.3 and 3.8.6.6 only during Mode 3, 4, or 5 (hot shutdown, cold shutdown, or refueling conditions) will provide greater flexibility in scheduling Division 3 battery testing activities by allowing the testing to be performed during non-outage times. • High Pressure Core Spray Diesel Generator Surveillance Testing The proposed amendments would revise TS 3.8.1, ‘‘AC SourcesOperating,’’ by revising certain SRs pertaining to the Division 3 diesel generator (DG). The Division 3 DG is an E:\FR\FM\14AUN1.SGM 14AUN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 157 / Tuesday, August 14, 2018 / Notices amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 independent source of onsite alternating current (AC) power dedicated to the HPCS system. The TSs currently prohibit performing the testing required by SRs 3.8.1.9, 3.8.1.10, 3.8.1.11, 3.8.1.12, 3.8.1.13, 3.8.1.16, 3.8.1.17, and 3.8.1.19, in Modes 1 or 2. The proposed amendments would remove these Mode restrictions and allow all eight of the identified SRs to be performed in any operating Mode for the Division 3 DG. The Mode restrictions will remain applicable to the other two safetyrelated (Division 1 and Division 2) DGs. The proposed change will provide greater flexibility in scheduling Division 3 DG testing activities by allowing the testing to be performed during nonoutage times. Having a completely tested Division 3 DG available for the duration of a refueling outage will reduce the number of system realignments and operator workload during an outage. Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously analyzed? Response: No. The Division 3 HPCS DG electrical power subsystem and its associated emergency loads are accident mitigating features, not accident initiators. Therefore, the proposed TS changes to allow the performance of certain Division 3 AC Sources surveillance testing in any plant operating Mode will not significantly impact the probability of any previously evaluated accident. The design and function of plant equipment is not being modified by the proposed changes. Neither the battery test frequency nor the time that the TSs allow the HPCS system to be inoperable are being revised. Battery testing in accordance with the proposed TS changes will continue to verify that the Division 3 DC electrical power subsystem is capable of performing its required function of providing DC power to HPCS system equipment, consistent with the plant safety analyses. The battery testing will occur during a planned HPCS outage and therefore will not result in an increase in risk above the current work practices of planned HPCS system maintenance outages. Any risk associated with the testing of the Division 3 battery will be bounded and addressed with the risk associated with the HPCS system outage. In addition, the HPCS system reliability and availability are monitored and evaluated in relationship to Maintenance Rule goals to ensure that total outage times do not degrade operational safety over time. Testing is limited to only one electrical division of equipment at a time to ensure that design basis requirements are met. Should a VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:13 Aug 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 fault occur while testing the Division 3 battery, there would be no significant impact on any accident consequences since the other two divisional DC electrical power subsystems and their associated emergency loads would be available to provide the minimum safety functions necessary to shut down the unit and maintain it in a safety shutdown condition. The Division 3 HPCS DG and its associated emergency loads are accident mitigating features, not accident initiators. Therefore, the proposed TS changes to allow the performance of Division 3 DG surveillance testing in any plant operating mode will not significantly impact the probability of any previously evaluated accident. The design of plant equipment is not being modified by the proposed changes. As such, the ability of the Division 3 DG to respond to a design basis accident will not be adversely impacted by the proposed changes. The proposed changes to the TS surveillance testing requirements for the Division 3 DG do not affect the operability requirements for the DG, as verification of such operability will continue to be performed as required. Continued verification of operability supports the capability of the Division 3 DG to perform its required function of providing emergency power to HPCS system equipment, consistent with the plant safety analyses. Limiting testing to only one DG at a time ensures that design basis requirements are met. Should a fault occur while testing the Division 3 DG, there would be no significant impact on any accident consequences since the other two divisional DGs and associated emergency loads would be available to provide the minimum safety functions necessary to shut down the unit and maintain it in a safe shutdown condition. Therefore, the proposed change does not result in a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. 2. Does the proposed change create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated? Response: No. No changes are being made to the plant that would introduce any new accident causal mechanisms. Equipment will be operated in the same configuration with the exception of the plant operating mode in which the Division 3 battery and DG surveillance testing are conducted. Performance of these surveillance tests while online will continue to verify operability of the Division 3 battery and DG. The battery testing will potentially minimize the out-ofservice time for the HPCS system. The proposed amendments do not impact any plant systems that are accident initiators and do not adversely impact any accident mitigating systems. Therefore, the proposed changes do not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. The proposed changes do not involve a significant reduction in the margin of safety. PO 00000 Frm 00138 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40349 Margin of safety is related to confidence in the ability of the fission product barriers (i.e., fuel cladding, reactor coolant system, and primary containment) to perform their design functions during and following postulated accidents. The proposed changes to the TS surveillance testing requirements for the Division 3 AC Sources and DG do not affect the operability requirements, as verification of such operability will continue to be performed as required. Continued verification of operability supports the capability of the Division 3 AC Sources and DG to perform the required functions of providing emergency power to HPCS system equipment, consistent with the plant safety analyses. Consequently, the performance of the fission product barriers will not be adversely impacted by implementation of the proposed amendments. In addition, the proposed changes do not alter setpoints or limits established or assumed by the accident analysis. The additional online unavailability of the HPCS system does not constitute a significant reduction in a margin of safety. The battery testing will be performed when the HPCS system is already out of service for a planned system outage and therefore the testing will not result in an increase in risk above the current work practices of planned system maintenance outages, as currently allowed by the TS. Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee’s analysis and, based on this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration.

Description of amendment request: The amendments would modify the Technical Specification (TS) requirements related to Completion Times for Required Actions to provide the option to calculate longer, risk- E:\FR\FM\14AUN1.SGM 14AUN1 40350 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 157 / Tuesday, August 14, 2018 / Notices amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 informed Completion Times. The amendments would also add a new program, the Risk Informed Completion Time (RICT) Program, to TS Section 6.0, ‘‘Administrative Controls.’’ The methodology for using the Risk Informed Completion Time Program is described in Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) topical report NEI 06–09, ‘‘RiskInformed Technical Specifications Initiative 4b, Risk-Managed Technical Specifications (RMTS) Guidelines,’’ Revision 0–A (ADAMS Accession No. ML12286A322), which was approved by the NRC on May 17, 2007. The license amendment request was originally noticed in the Federal Register on March 17, 2015 (80 FR 13908). The licensee originally proposed to adopt, with plant specific variations, Technical Specifications Task Force (TSTF) Traveler TSTF–505, Revision 1, ‘‘Provide Risk-Informed Extended Completion Times—RITSTF [Risk Informed TSTF] Initiative 4b’’ (Accession No. ML111650552). By letter dated November 15, 2016 (ADAMS Accession No. ML16281A021), the NRC staff informed the TSTF of its decision to suspend NRC approval of TSTF–505, Revision 1, because of concerns identified during the review of plantspecific license amendment requests for adoption of the traveler. The NRC staff’s letter also stated that it would continue reviewing applications already received and site-specific proposals to address the staff’s concerns. Although the scope of the amendment request has not changed, the basis for the amendments will no longer rely on TSTF–505. The notice is being reissued in its entirety to include the description of the amendment request and proposed no significant hazards consideration determination. Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed change permits the extension of Completion Times provided the associated risk is assessed and managed in accordance with the NRC[-]approved Risk Informed Completion Time Program. The proposed change does not involve a significant increase in the probability of an accident previously evaluated because the change involves no change to the plant or its modes of operation. The proposed change does not increase the consequences of an accident because the design-basis mitigation VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:13 Aug 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 function of the affected systems is not changed and the consequences of an accident [occurring] during the extended Completion Time are no different from those [occurring] during the existing Completion Time. 2. Does the proposed change create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed change does not change the design, configuration, or method of operation of the plant. The proposed change does not involve a physical alteration of the plant (no new or different kind of equipment will be installed). Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. The proposed change permits the extension of Completion Times provided risk is assessed and managed in accordance with the NRC[-]approved Risk Informed Completion Time Program. The proposed change implements a risk-informed configuration management program to assure that adequate margins of safety are maintained. Application of these new specifications and the configuration management program considers cumulative effects of multiple systems or components being out of service and does so more effectively than the current TS. Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee’s analysis and, based on this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration.

Specifically, NSPM is requesting the deletion of five modifications from Table S–2 of the December 14, 2016, LAR. Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed amendment adds a reference to this letter to the PINGP, Units 1 and 2, RFOLs. The changes encompassed by this proposed amendment are to delete five modifications that are no longer needed from a risk perspective. The revision is based on five changes to Table S–2 proposed in this license amendment request (LAR). The proposed changes have been reviewed in the fire Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) model approved as part of PINGP’s transition to NFPA 805 and the results were found to be acceptable. Fire protection defense in depth and adequate safety margins are maintained with the changes proposed in this LAR. The proposed change does not adversely affect accident initiators or precursors, nor alter the design assumptions, conditions, and configuration of the facility or the manner in which the plant is operated and maintained. The proposed changes do not adversely affect the ability of structures, systems and components (SSCs) to perform their intended safety function to mitigate the consequences of an initiating event within the assumed acceptance limits. The proposed change does not increase the probability or consequences of an accident as verified by the risk analysis performed. Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. 2.

A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18177A450. Brief description of amendment request: The proposed amendments would revise PINGP Technical Specifications (TSs) by eliminating second Completion Times limiting time from discovery of failure to meet a limiting condition for operation (LCO). These changes are consistent with NRCapproved Technical Specifications Task Force (TSTF) Traveler TSTF–439, Revision 2, ‘‘Eliminate Second Completion Times Limiting Time from Discovery of Failure to Meet an LCO.’’ Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:13 Aug 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed change eliminates second Completion Times from the Technical Specifications. Completion Times are not an initiator to any accident previously evaluated. As a result, the probability of an accident previously evaluated is not affected. The consequences of an accident during the revised Completion Time are no different than the consequences of the same accident during the existing Completion Times. As a result, the consequences of an accident previously evaluated are not affected by this change. The proposed change does not alter or prevent the ability of SSCs [structures, systems, and components] from performing their intended function to mitigate the consequences of an initiating event within the assumed acceptance limits. The proposed change does not affect the source term, containment isolation, or radiological release assumptions used in evaluating the radiological consequences of an accident previously evaluated. Further, the proposed change does not increase the types or amounts of radioactive effluent that may be released offsite nor significantly increase individual or cumulative occupational/ public radiation exposures. The proposed change is consistent with the safety analysis assumptions and resultant consequences. Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. 2. Does the proposed amendment create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed change does not involve a physical alteration of the plant (i.e., no new or different type of equipment will be installed) or a change in the methods governing normal plant operation. The proposed change does not alter any assumptions made in the safety analysis. Therefore, the proposed changes do not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. The proposed change to delete the second Completion Time does not alter the manner in which safety limits, limiting safety system settings, or limiting conditions for operation are determined. The safety analysis acceptance criteria are not affected by this change. The proposed change will not result in plant operation in a configuration outside of the design basis. Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee’s analysis and, based on this review, it appears that the three PO 00000 Frm 00140 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40351 standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are satisfied.

A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18183A343. Description of amendment request: The amendments would revise technical specification (TS) requirements in Section 3/4.0, ‘‘Applicability,’’ regarding Limiting Condition for Operation (LCO) and Surveillance Requirement (SR) usage. These changes are consistent with NRC-approved Technical Specifications Task Force (TSTF) Traveler TSTF–529, ‘‘Clarify Use and Application Rules.’’ Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed changes to LCO 3.0.4 have no effect on the requirement for systems to be Operable and have no effect on the application of TS actions. The proposed change to SR 4.0.3 states that the allowance may only be used when there is a reasonable expectation the surveillance will be met when performed. Since the proposed changes do not significantly affect system Operability, the proposed changes will have no significant effect on the initiating events for accidents previously evaluated and will have no significant effect on the ability of the systems to mitigate accidents previously evaluated. Therefore, it is concluded that this change does not involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. 2. Does the proposed change create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated? Response: No. E:\FR\FM\14AUN1.SGM 14AUN1 40352 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 157 / Tuesday, August 14, 2018 / Notices The proposed change to the TS usage rules does not affect the design or function of any plant systems. The proposed change does not change the Operability requirements for plant systems or the actions taken when plant systems are not operable. Therefore, it is concluded that this change does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. The proposed change clarifies the application of LCO 3.0.4 and does not result in changes in plant operation. SR 4.0.3 is revised to allow application of SR 4.0.3 when an SR has not been previously performed and there is reasonable expectation that the SR will be met when performed. This expands the use of SR 4.0.3 while ensuring the affected system is capable of performing its safety function. As a result, plant safety is either improved or unaffected. Therefore, it is concluded that this change does not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee’s analysis and, based on this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration. Attorney for licensee: Ryan K.

A publically-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18173A128. Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment would revise Technical Specification (TS) Section 2.0, ‘‘Radioactive Releases,’’ from its original custom form to industry typical 10 CFR 50.36a TSs for effluents from nuclear power reactors. Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: 1. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed amendment is administrative and does not involve modification of any plant equipment or affect VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:13 Aug 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 basic plant operation. The proposed amendment revises all of Technical Specification Section 2.0, Radioactive Releases from its original custom form to typical 10 CFR 50.36a, Technical Specifications on effluents from nuclear power reactors that are consistent with those of plants in advanced stages of decommissioning. The proposed amendment also deletes three Technical Specifications whose requirements are included in STS– 005–020, Offsite Dose Calculation Manual and therefore, are no longer necessary as standalone Technical Specifications. These three Technical Specifications include one associated with the annual report, one associated with area monitoring thermoluminescent dosimeters and one associated with environmental monitoring. The NSS’s reactor is not operational and the level of radioactivity in the NSS has significantly decreased from the levels that existed when the final shutdown was completed on November 8, 1970. No aspect of any of the proposed changes is an initiator of any accident previously evaluated. Consequently, the probability of an accident previously evaluated is not significantly increased. Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. 2. Does the proposed amendment create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated? Response: No. All of the proposed changes are administrative and do not involve physical alteration of plant equipment that was not previously allowed by Technical Specifications. The proposed amendment revises all of Technical Specification Section 2.0, Radioactive Releases from its original custom form to typical 10 CFR 50.36a, Technical Specifications on effluents from nuclear power reactors that are consistent with those of plants in advanced stages of decommissioning. The proposed amendment also deletes three Technical Specifications whose requirements are included in STS– 005–020, Offsite Dose Calculation Manual and therefore, are no longer necessary as standalone Technical Specifications. These three Technical Specifications include one associated with the annual report, one associated with area monitoring thermoluminescent dosimeters and one associated with environmental monitoring. These proposed changes do not change the method by which any safety-related system performs its function given that all primary, auxiliary and secondary systems are deactivated, disabled and perform no active function. No new or different types of equipment will be installed, and the basic operation of installed equipment is unchanged. The methods governing plant operation and testing remain consistent with current safety analysis assumptions. Therefore, the proposed changes do not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any previously evaluated. 3. Does the change involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? PO 00000 Frm 00141 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Response: No. All of the proposed changes are administrative in nature. The proposed amendment revises all of Technical Specification Section 2.0, Radioactive Releases from its original custom form to typical 10 CFR 50.36a, Technical Specifications on effluents from nuclear power reactors that are consistent with those of plants in advanced stages of decommissioning.

These three Technical Specifications include one associated with the annual report, one associated with area monitoring thermoluminescent dosimeters and one associated with environmental monitoring. No margins of safety exist that are relevant to the ship’s defueled and partially dismantled reactor. As such, there are no changes being made to safety analysis assumptions, safety limits or safety system settings that would adversely affect plant safety as a result of the proposed changes. As such, there are no changes being made to safety analysis assumptions, safety limits or safety system settings that would adversely affect plant safety or are relevant to the ship’s defueled and partially dismantled reactor as a result of the proposed changes.

II. Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendments to Facility 
Operating Licenses and Combined Licenses and Proposed No Significant 
Hazards Consideration Determination

    The Commission has made a proposed determination that the following 
amendment requests involve no significant hazards consideration. Under 
the Commission's regulations in section 50.92 of title 10 of the Code 
of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), this means that operation of the 
facility in accordance with the proposed amendment would not (1) 
involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an 
accident previously evaluated, or (2) create the possibility of a new 
or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated; 
or (3) involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. The basis 
for this proposed determination for each amendment request is shown 
below.
    The Commission is seeking public comments on this proposed 
determination. Any comments received within 30 days after the date of 
publication of this notice will be considered in making any final 
determination.
    Normally, the Commission will not issue the amendment until the 
expiration of 60 days after the date of publication of this notice. The 
Commission may issue the license amendment before expiration of the 60-
day period provided that its final determination is that the amendment 
involves no significant hazards consideration. In addition, the 
Commission may issue the amendment prior to the expiration of the 30-
day comment period if circumstances change during the 30-day comment 
period such that failure to act in a timely way would result, for 
example in derating or shutdown of the facility. If the Commission 
takes action prior to the expiration of either the comment period or 
the notice period, it will publish in the Federal Register a notice of 
issuance. If the Commission makes a final no significant hazards 
consideration determination, any hearing will take place after 
issuance. The Commission expects that the need to take this action will 
occur very infrequently.

A. Opportunity To Request a Hearing and Petition for Leave To Intervene

    Within 60 days after the date of publication of this notice, any 
persons (petitioner) whose interest may be affected by this action may 
file a request for a hearing and petition for leave to intervene 
(petition) with respect to the action. Petitions shall be filed in 
accordance with the Commission's ``Agency Rules of Practice and 
Procedure'' in 10 CFR part 2. Interested persons should consult a 
current copy of 10 CFR 2.309. The NRC's regulations are accessible 
electronically from the NRC Library on the NRC's website at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/cfr/. Alternatively, a copy of 
the regulations is available at the NRC's Public Document Room, located 
at One White Flint North, Room O1-F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first 
floor), Rockville, Maryland 20852. If a petition is filed, the 
Commission or a presiding officer will rule on the petition and, if 
appropriate, a notice of a hearing will be issued.
    As required by 10 CFR 2.309(d) the petition should specifically 
explain the reasons why intervention should be permitted with 
particular reference to the following general requirements for 
standing: (1) The name, address, and telephone number of the 
petitioner; (2) the nature of the petitioner's right under the Act to 
be made a party to the proceeding; (3) the nature and extent of the 
petitioner's property, financial, or other interest in the proceeding; 
and (4) the possible effect of any decision or order which may be 
entered in the proceeding on the petitioner's interest.
    In accordance with 10 CFR 2.309(f), the petition must also set 
forth the specific contentions which the petitioner seeks to have 
litigated in the proceeding. Each contention must consist of a specific 
statement of the issue of law or fact to be raised or controverted. In 
addition, the petitioner must provide a brief explanation of the bases 
for the contention and a concise statement of the alleged facts or 
expert opinion which support the contention and on which the petitioner 
intends to rely in proving the contention at the hearing. The 
petitioner must also provide references to the specific sources and 
documents on which the petitioner intends to rely to support its 
position on the issue. The petition must include sufficient information 
to show that a genuine dispute exists with the applicant or licensee on 
a material issue of law or fact. Contentions must be limited to matters 
within the scope of

[[Page 40344]]

the proceeding. The contention must be one which, if proven, would 
entitle the petitioner to relief. A petitioner who fails to satisfy the 
requirements at 10 CFR 2.309(f) with respect to at least one contention 
will not be permitted to participate as a party.
    Those permitted to intervene become parties to the proceeding, 
subject to any limitations in the order granting leave to intervene. 
Parties have the opportunity to participate fully in the conduct of the 
hearing with respect to resolution of that party's admitted 
contentions, including the opportunity to present evidence, consistent 
with the NRC's regulations, policies, and procedures.
    Petitions must be filed no later than 60 days from the date of 
publication of this notice. Petitions and motions for leave to file new 
or amended contentions that are filed after the deadline will not be 
entertained absent a determination by the presiding officer that the 
filing demonstrates good cause by satisfying the three factors in 10 
CFR 2.309(c)(1)(i) through (iii). The petition must be filed in 
accordance with the filing instructions in the ``Electronic Submissions 
(E-Filing)'' section of this document.
    If a hearing is requested, and the Commission has not made a final 
determination on the issue of no significant hazards consideration, the 
Commission will make a final determination on the issue of no 
significant hazards consideration. The final determination will serve 
to establish when the hearing is held. If the final determination is 
that the amendment request involves no significant hazards 
consideration, the Commission may issue the amendment and make it 
immediately effective, notwithstanding the request for a hearing. Any 
hearing would take place after issuance of the amendment. If the final 
determination is that the amendment request involves a significant 
hazards consideration, then any hearing held would take place before 
the issuance of the amendment unless the Commission finds an imminent 
danger to the health or safety of the public, in which case it will 
issue an appropriate order or rule under 10 CFR part 2.
    A State, local governmental body, Federally-recognized Indian 
Tribe, or agency thereof, may submit a petition to the Commission to 
participate as a party under 10 CFR 2.309(h)(1). The petition should 
state the nature and extent of the petitioner's interest in the 
proceeding. The petition should be submitted to the Commission no later 
than 60 days from the date of publication of this notice. The petition 
must be filed in accordance with the filing instructions in the 
``Electronic Submissions (E-Filing)'' section of this document, and 
should meet the requirements for petitions set forth in this section, 
except that under 10 CFR 2.309(h)(2) a State, local governmental body, 
or Federally-recognized Indian Tribe, or agency thereof does not need 
to address the standing requirements in 10 CFR 2.309(d) if the facility 
is located within its boundaries. Alternatively, a State, local 
governmental body, Federally-recognized Indian Tribe, or agency thereof 
may participate as a non-party under 10 CFR 2.315(c).
    If a hearing is granted, any person who is not a party to the 
proceeding and is not affiliated with or represented by a party may, at 
the discretion of the presiding officer, be permitted to make a limited 
appearance pursuant to the provisions of 10 CFR 2.315(a). A person 
making a limited appearance may make an oral or written statement of 
his or her position on the issues but may not otherwise participate in 
the proceeding. A limited appearance may be made at any session of the 
hearing or at any prehearing conference, subject to the limits and 
conditions as may be imposed by the presiding officer. Details 
regarding the opportunity to make a limited appearance will be provided 
by the presiding officer if such sessions are scheduled.

B. Electronic Submissions (E-Filing)

    All documents filed in NRC adjudicatory proceedings, including a 
request for hearing and petition for leave to intervene (petition), any 
motion or other document filed in the proceeding prior to the 
submission of a request for hearing or petition to intervene, and 
documents filed by interested governmental entities that request to 
participate under 10 CFR 2.315(c), must be filed in accordance with the 
NRC's E-Filing rule (72 FR 49139; August 28, 2007, as amended at 77 FR 
46562; August 3, 2012). The E-Filing process requires participants to 
submit and serve all adjudicatory documents over the internet, or in 
some cases to mail copies on electronic storage media. Detailed 
guidance on making electronic submissions may be found in the Guidance 
for Electronic Submissions to the NRC and on the NRC website at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals.html. Participants may not submit 
paper copies of their filings unless they seek an exemption in 
accordance with the procedures described below.
    To comply with the procedural requirements of E-Filing, at least 10 
days prior to the filing deadline, the participant should contact the 
Office of the Secretary by email at [email protected], or by 
telephone at 301-415-1677, to (1) request a digital identification (ID) 
certificate, which allows the participant (or its counsel or 
representative) to digitally sign submissions and access the E-Filing 
system for any proceeding in which it is participating; and (2) advise 
the Secretary that the participant will be submitting a petition or 
other adjudicatory document (even in instances in which the 
participant, or its counsel or representative, already holds an NRC-
issued digital ID certificate). Based upon this information, the 
Secretary will establish an electronic docket for the hearing in this 
proceeding if the Secretary has not already established an electronic 
docket.
    Information about applying for a digital ID certificate is 
available on the NRC's public website at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals/getting-started.html. Once a participant has obtained a 
digital ID certificate and a docket has been created, the participant 
can then submit adjudicatory documents. Submissions must be in Portable 
Document Format (PDF). Additional guidance on PDF submissions is 
available on the NRC's public website at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/electronic-sub-ref-mat.html. A filing is considered complete at the 
time the document is submitted through the NRC's E-Filing system. To be 
timely, an electronic filing must be submitted to the E-Filing system 
no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the due date. Upon receipt of 
a transmission, the E-Filing system time-stamps the document and sends 
the submitter an email notice confirming receipt of the document. The 
E-Filing system also distributes an email notice that provides access 
to the document to the NRC's Office of the General Counsel and any 
others who have advised the Office of the Secretary that they wish to 
participate in the proceeding, so that the filer need not serve the 
document on those participants separately. Therefore, applicants and 
other participants (or their counsel or representative) must apply for 
and receive a digital ID certificate before adjudicatory documents are 
filed so that they can obtain access to the documents via the E-Filing 
system.
    A person filing electronically using the NRC's adjudicatory E-
Filing system may seek assistance by contacting the NRC's Electronic 
Filing Help Desk through the ``Contact Us'' link located on the NRC's 
public website at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/e-submittals.html, by 
email to

[[Page 40345]]

[email protected], or by a toll-free call at 1-866-672-7640. The 
NRC Electronic Filing Help Desk is available between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., 
Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, excluding government holidays.
    Participants who believe that they have a good cause for not 
submitting documents electronically must file an exemption request, in 
accordance with 10 CFR 2.302(g), with their initial paper filing 
stating why there is good cause for not filing electronically and 
requesting authorization to continue to submit documents in paper 
format. Such filings must be submitted by: (1) First class mail 
addressed to the Office of the Secretary of the Commission, U.S. 
Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001, Attention: 
Rulemaking and Adjudications Staff; or (2) courier, express mail, or 
expedited delivery service to the Office of the Secretary, 11555 
Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852, Attention: Rulemaking and 
Adjudications Staff. Participants filing adjudicatory documents in this 
manner are responsible for serving the document on all other 
participants. Filing is considered complete by first-class mail as of 
the time of deposit in the mail, or by courier, express mail, or 
expedited delivery service upon depositing the document with the 
provider of the service. A presiding officer, having granted an 
exemption request from using E-Filing, may require a participant or 
party to use E-Filing if the presiding officer subsequently determines 
that the reason for granting the exemption from use of E-Filing no 
longer exists.
    Documents submitted in adjudicatory proceedings will appear in the 
NRC's electronic hearing docket which is available to the public at 
https://adams.nrc.gov/ehd, unless excluded pursuant to an order of the 
Commission or the presiding officer. If you do not have an NRC-issued 
digital ID certificate as described above, click cancel when the link 
requests certificates and you will be automatically directed to the 
NRC's electronic hearing dockets where you will be able to access any 
publicly available documents in a particular hearing docket. 
Participants are requested not to include personal privacy information, 
such as social security numbers, home addresses, or personal phone 
numbers in their filings, unless an NRC regulation or other law 
requires submission of such information. For example, in some 
instances, individuals provide home addresses in order to demonstrate 
proximity to a facility or site. With respect to copyrighted works, 
except for limited excerpts that serve the purpose of the adjudicatory 
filings and would constitute a Fair Use application, participants are 
requested not to include copyrighted materials in their submission.
    For further details with respect to these license amendment 
applications, see the application for amendment which is available for 
public inspection in ADAMS and at the NRC's PDR. For additional 
direction on accessing information related to this document, see the 
``Obtaining Information and Submitting Comments'' section of this

Arizona Public Service Company, et al., Docket Nos. STN 50-528, STN 50-
529, and STN 50-530, Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station, Unit Nos. 
1, 2, and 3, Maricopa County, Arizona

    Date of amendment request: July 31, 2015, as supplemented by 
letters dated April 11, 2016; November 3, 2017; May 18, 2018; and June 
1, 2018. Publicly-available versions are in ADAMS under Accession Nos. 
ML15218A300, ML16102A463, ML17307A188, ML18138A480, and ML18152B874, 
respectively.
    Description of amendment request: The amendments would modify the 
technical specification (TS) requirements related to Completion Times 
(CTs) for Required Actions to provide the option to calculate longer, 
risk-informed CTs. The methodology for using the Risk Informed 
Completion Time (RICT) Program is described in Nuclear Energy Institute 
(NEI) topical report NEI 06-09, ``Risk-Informed Technical 
Specifications Initiative 4b, Risk-Managed Technical Specifications 
(RMTS) Guidelines,'' Revision 0-A (ADAMS Accession No. ML12286A322), 
which was approved by the NRC on May 17, 2007. The license amendment 
request (LAR) was originally noticed in the Federal Register on 
December 8, 2015 (80 FR 76317). The licensee originally proposed to 
adopt, with plant-specific variations, Technical Specifications Task 
Force (TSTF) Traveler TSTF-505, Revision 1, ``Provide Risk-Informed 
Extended Completion Times--RITSTF [Risk Informed TSTF] Initiative 4b'' 
(ADAMS Accession No. ML111650552). By letter dated November 15, 2016 
(ADAMS Accession No. ML16281A021), the NRC staff informed the TSTF of 
its decision to suspend NRC approval of TSTF-505, Revision 1, because 
of concerns identified during the review of plant-specific LARs for 
adoption of the traveler. The NRC staff's letter also stated that it 
would continue reviewing applications already received and site-
specific proposals to address the staff's concerns. Although the scope 
of the amendment request has not changed, the basis for the amendments 
will no longer rely on TSTF-505. This notice is being reissued in its 
entirety to include the revised description of the amendment request. 
The proposed no significant hazards consideration determination is 
identical to the one published in the Federal Register on December 8, 
2015.
    Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration 
determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has 
provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards 
consideration, which is presented below:

    1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in 
the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change permits the use of RICTs provided the 
associated risk is assessed and managed in accordance with the NRC-
accepted RICT Program. The proposed use of RICTs does not involve a 
significant increase in the probability of an accident previously 
evaluated because the change only affects TS Conditions, Required 
Actions and CTs associated with risk informed technical 
specifications and does not involve changes to the plant, its modes 
of operation, or TS mode applicability. The proposed license 
amendment references regulatory commitments to achieve the baseline 
PRA [probabilistic risk assessment] risk metrics specified in the 
NRC model evaluation. The changes proposed by regulatory commitments 
will be implemented under the requirements of 10 CFR 50.59 without 
the need for prior NRC approval. The proposed change does not 
increase the consequences of an accident because the accident 
mitigation functions of the affected systems, structures, or 
components (SSCs) are not changed.
    Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant 
increase in the probability or consequences of an accident 
previously evaluated.
    2. Does the proposed change create the possibility or different 
kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change permits the use of RICTs provided the 
associated risk is assessed and managed in accordance with the NRC-
accepted RICT Program. The proposed use of RICTs does not create the 
possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident 
previously evaluated because the change only affects TS Conditions, 
Required Actions and CTs associated with risk informed technical 
specifications. The proposed change does not involve a physical 
alteration of the plant and does not involve installation of new or 
different kind of equipment. The proposed license amendment 
references regulatory commitments to achieve the baseline PRA risk 
metrics specified in the NRC model evaluation. The changes proposed 
by

[[Page 40346]]

regulatory commitments will be implemented under the requirements of 
10 CFR 50.59 without the need for prior NRC approval. The proposed 
change does not alter the accident mitigation functions of the 
affected SSCs and does not introduce new or different SSC failure 
modes than already evaluated.
    Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility 
of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously 
evaluated.
    3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a 
margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change permits the use of RICTs provided the risk 
levels associated with inoperable equipment within the scope of the 
RICT program are assessed and managed in accordance with the NRC 
approved RICT Program. The proposed change implements a risk-
informed Configuration Risk Management Program (CRMP) to assure that 
adequate margins of safety are maintained. Application of these new 
specifications and the CRMP considers cumulative effects of multiple 
systems or components being out of service and does so more 
effectively than the current TS. In this regard, the implementation 
of the CRMP is considered an improvement in safety.
    Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant

DTE Electric Company, Docket No. 50-341, Fermi 2, Monroe County, 
Michigan

    Date of amendment request: March 14, 2018. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18073A137.
    Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment modifies 
the technical specification definition of ``Shutdown Margin'' (SDM) to 
require calculation of the SDM at a reactor moderator temperature of 68 
degrees Fahrenheit ([deg]F) per hour or a higher temperature that 
represents the most reactive state throughout the operating cycle. This 
change is needed to address new boiling water reactor (BWR) fuel 
designs, which may be more reactive at shutdown temperatures above 
68[emsp14][deg]F.
    Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration 
determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has 
provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards 
consideration, which is presented below:

    1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in 
the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change revises the definition of SDM. SDM is not an 
initiator to any accident previously evaluated. Accordingly, the 
proposed change to the definition of SDM has no effect on the 
probability of any accident previously evaluated. SDM is an 
assumption in the analysis of some previously evaluated accidents 
and inadequate SDM could lead to an increase in consequences for 
those accidents. However, the proposed change revises the SDM 
definition to ensure that the correct SDM is determined for all fuel 
types at all times during the fuel cycle.
    As a result, the proposed change does not adversely affect the 
consequences of any accident previously evaluated.
    Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant 
increase in the probability or consequences of an accident 
previously evaluated.
    2. Does the proposed change create the possibility of a new or 
different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change revises the definition of SDM. The change 
does not involve a physical alteration of the plant (i.e., no new or 
different type of equipment will be installed) or a change in the 
methods governing normal plant operations. The change does not alter 
assumptions made in the safety analysis regarding SDM.
    Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility 
of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously 
evaluated.
    3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a 
margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change revises the definition of SDM. The proposed 
change does not alter the manner in which safety limits, limiting 
safety system settings or limiting conditions for operation are 
determined. The proposed change ensures that the SDM assumed in 
determining safety limits, limiting safety system settings or 
limiting conditions for operation is correct for all BWR fuel types 
at all times during the fuel cycle. Therefore, the proposed change 
does not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety.

    The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee's analysis and based on 
this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are 
satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the 
amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration.

    Date of amendment request: June 20, 2018. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18172A315.
    Description of amendment request: The amendments would revise the 
Emergency Action Levels (EALs) for CNS, MNS, ONS, BNP, HNP, and RNP 
consistent with Emergency Preparedness Frequently Asked Questions 
(EPFAQs) 2015-013 (EAL HG1.1) and 2016-002 (EALs CA6.1 and SA9.1 (SA8.1 
for BNP)). The amendments would revise the EALs for HNP and RNP 
consistent with EPFAQ 2015-014 (EAL HS6.1).
    Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration 
determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has 
provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards 
consideration, which is presented below:

    1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in 
the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed changes to EALs HG1.1, CA6.1, SA9.1 (SA8.1 for 
BNP), and HS6.1 do not reduce the capability to meet the emergency 
planning requirements established in 10 CFR 50.47 and 10 CFR [Part] 
50, Appendix E. The proposed changes do not reduce the 
functionality, performance, or capability of Duke Energy's Emergency 
Response Organization (ERO) to respond in mitigating the 
consequences of any design basis accident. The proposed changes do 
not involve any physical changes to plant

[[Page 40347]]

equipment or systems, nor do they alter the assumptions of any 
accident analyses. The proposed changes do not adversely affect 
accident initiators or precursors nor do they alter the design 
assumptions, conditions, and configuration or the manner in which 
the plants are operated and maintained. The proposed changes do not 
adversely affect the ability of Structures, Systems, or Components 
(SSCs) to perform their intended safety functions in mitigating the 
consequences of an initiating event within the assumed acceptance 
limits. There is no impact on the source term or pathways assumed in 
accidents previously assumed. No analysis assumptions are violated 
and there are no adverse effects on the factors that contribute to 
offsite or onsite dose as the result of an accident.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant 
increase in the probability or consequences of an accident 
previously evaluated.
    2. Does the proposed change create the possibility of a new or 
different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed changes to EALs HG1.1, CA6.1, SA9.1 (SA8.1 for 
BNP), and HS6.1 do not involve any physical changes to plant systems 
or equipment. The proposed changes do not involve the addition of 
any new plant equipment. The proposed changes will not alter the 
design configuration, or method of operation of plant equipment 
beyond its normal functional capabilities. All Duke Energy ERO 
functions will continue to be performed as required. The proposed 
changes do not create any new credible failure mechanisms, 
malfunctions, or accident initiators.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not create the possibility of 
a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously 
evaluated.
    3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a 
margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    Margin of safety is related to the confidence in the ability of 
the fission product barriers to perform their design functions 
during and following an accident. These barriers include the fuel 
cladding, the reactor coolant system, and the containment system.
    The proposed changes to EALs HG1.1, CA6.1, SA9.1 (SA8.1 for 
BNP), and HS6.1 do not alter or exceed a design basis or safety 
limit. There is no change being made to safety analysis assumptions, 
safety limits, or limiting safety system settings that would 
adversely affect plant safety as a result of the proposed changes. 
There are no changes to setpoints or environmental conditions of any 
SSC or the manner in which any SSC is operated. Margins of safety 
are unaffected by the proposed changes. The applicable requirements 
of 10 CFR 50.47 and 10 CFR [Part] 50, Appendix E will continue to be 
met.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant 
reduction in a margin of safety.

    The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee's analysis and, based on 
this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are 
satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the 
amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration.

Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc., Docket No. 50-255, Palisades Nuclear 
Plant (PNP), Van Buren County, Michigan

    Date of amendment request: May 30, 2018. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18152A922.
    Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment would 
revise the PNP Technical Specification (TS) 3.3.5, ``Diesel Generator 
(DG)--Undervoltage Start (UV Start),'' Surveillance Requirement (SR) 
3.3.5.2a by adding a channel calibration requirement for the combined 
time delay setpoints for the degraded voltage sensing relay and the 
degraded voltage time delay relay.
    Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration 
determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has 
provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards 
consideration, which is presented below:

    1. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant increase in 
the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed amendment would revise a TS SR to include, for each 
degraded voltage channel, calibration of the time delay setpoint for 
the degraded voltage sensing relay in combination with the setpoint 
for the time delay relay. The minimum time delay setpoint in the 
revised TS SR would be long enough to override any brief voltage 
disturbances. The maximum time delay setpoint in the revised TS SR 
would be short enough to not exceed the maximum time delays assumed 
in the PNP Final Safety Analysis Report accident analyses for the 
operation of safety related equipment and to not result in failure 
of safety related equipment due to sustained degraded voltage 
conditions. Therefore, safety related loads would be available to 
perform their required safety functions under these conditions.
    The proposed change does not adversely affect accident 
initiators or precursors, and does not affect the design 
assumptions, conditions, or configuration of the plant, or the 
manner in which the plant is operated or maintained.
    Therefore, the proposed amendment does not involve a significant 
increase in the probability or consequences of an accident 
previously evaluated.
    2. Does the proposed amendment create the possibility of a new 
or different kind of accident from any accident previously 
evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed amendment would revise a TS SR to include, for each 
degraded voltage channel, calibration of the time delay setpoint for 
the degraded voltage sensing relay in combination with the time 
delay setpoint for the time delay relay. The conduct of surveillance 
tests on safety related plant equipment is a means of assuring that 
the equipment is capable of performing its functions that are 
credited in the safety analyses for the facility. The proposed 
amendment would not affect the operation of safety related equipment 
assumed in accident analyses, and would not create any new failure 
mechanisms, malfunctions, or accident initiators not considered in 
the design and licensing bases.
    Therefore, the possibility of a new or different kind of 
accident from any previously evaluated has not been created.
    3. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant reduction 
in a margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    The proposed amendment would revise a TS SR to include, for each 
degraded voltage channel, calibration of the time delay setpoint for 
the degraded voltage sensing relay in combination with the time 
delay setpoint for the time delay relay. The conduct of surveillance 
tests on safety related plant equipment is a means of assuring that 
the equipment is capable of maintaining the margin of safety 
established in the safety analyses for the facility. The proposed 
amendment would not introduce changes to limits established in the 
accident analyses. The minimum time delay setpoint in the revised TS 
SR would be long enough to override any brief voltage disturbances. 
The maximum time delay setpoint in the revised TS SR would be short 
enough to not exceed the maximum time delays assumed in the PNP 
Final Safety Analysis Report accident analyses for the operation of 
safety related equipment and to not result in failure of safety 
related equipment due to sustained degraded voltage conditions.
    Therefore, the proposed amendment does not involve a significant 
reduction in a margin of safety.

    The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee's analysis and, based on 
this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are 
satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the 
amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration.

    Date of amendment request: June 15, 2018. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18166A197.
    Description of amendment request: The amendments would revise the 
technical specification (TS) requirements associated with the average 
power range monitors (APRMs).
    Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration 
determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has 
provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards 
consideration, which is presented below:
    1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in 
the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The APRM system and the RPS [reactor protection system] are not 
initiators of any accidents previously evaluated. As a result, the 
proposed change does not affect the probability of any accident 
previously evaluated. The APRM system and the RPS functions act to 
mitigate the consequences of accidents previously evaluated. The 
reliability of the APRM system and the RPS is not significantly 
affected by removing the gain adjustment requirement on the APRM 
channels when the APRMs are calibrated conservatively with respect 
to the calculated heat balance. This is because the actual core 
thermal power at which the reactor will automatically trip is lower, 
thereby increasing the margin to the core thermal limits and the 
limiting safety system settings assumed in the safety analyses. The 
consequences of an accident during the adjustment of the APRM 
instrumentation are no different from those during the existing 
surveillance testing period or the existing time allowed to restore 
the instruments to operable status. As a result, the ability of the 
APRM system and the RPS to mitigate any accident previously 
evaluated is not significantly affected.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant 
increase in the probability or consequences of an accident 
previously evaluated.
    2. Does the proposed change create the possibility of a new or 
different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed changes do not alter the protection system designs, 
create new failure modes, or change any modes of operation. The 
proposed change does not involve a physical alteration of the plant; 
no new or different kind of equipment will be installed. 
Consequently, there are no new initiators that could result in a new 
or different kind of accident.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not create the possibility of 
a new or different kind of accident from any previously evaluated.
    3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a 
margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    The margin of safety provided by the APRM system and the RPS is 
to ensure that the reactor is shut down automatically when plant 
parameters exceed the setpoints for the system. Any reduction in the 
margin of safety resulting from the adjustment of the APRM channels 
while continuing operation is considered to be offset by delaying a 
plant shutdown (i.e., a transient) for a short time with the APRM 
system, the primary indication of core power and an input to the 
RPS, not calibrated. Additionally, the short time period required 
for adjustment is consistent with the time allowed by TS to restore 
the core power distribution parameters to within limits and is 
acceptable based on the low probability of a transient or design 
basis accident occurring simultaneously with inaccurate APRM 
channels.
    The proposed changes do not alter setpoints or limits 
established or assumed by the accident analyses. The TS continue to 
require operability of the RPS functions, which provide core 
protection for postulated reactivity insertion events occurring 
during power operating conditions consistent with the plant safety 
analyses.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant 
reduction in a margin of safety.

    The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee's analysis and, based on 
this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are 
satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the 
requested amendments involve no significant hazards consideration.

Exelon Generation Company, LLC, Docket Nos. 50-373 and 50-374, LaSalle 
County Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2, LaSalle County, Illinois

    Date of amendment request: April 19, 2018. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18157A123.
    Description of amendment request: The amendments would revise 
licenses and the technical specifications (TSs) as follows:

 Division 3 Battery Surveillance Testing

    The proposed amendments would revise TS 3.8.4, ``DC Sources-
Operating,'' and TS 3.8.6, ``Battery Parameters,'' by removing the Mode 
restrictions for performance of TS surveillance requirements (SRs) 
3.8.4.3 and 3.8.6.6 for the Division 3 direct current (DC) electrical 
power subsystem battery. The Division 3 DC electrical power subsystem 
feeds emergency DC loads associated with the high pressure core spray 
(HPCS) system. Surveillance Requirement 3.8.4.3 verifies that the 
battery capacity is adequate for the battery to perform its required 
functions. Surveillance Requirement 3.8.6.6 verifies battery capacity 
is greater than or equal to (>=) 80 percent of the manufacturer's 
rating when subjected to a performance discharge test (or a modified 
performance discharge test). The proposed amendments would remove these 
Mode restrictions for the Division 3 battery, allowing performance of 
SRs 3.8.4.3 and 3.8.6.6 for the Division 3 battery during Mode 1 or 2, 
potentially minimizing impact on HPCS unavailability. Eliminating the 
requirement to perform SRs 3.8.4.3 and 3.8.6.6 only during Mode 3, 4, 
or 5 (hot shutdown, cold shutdown, or refueling conditions) will 
provide greater flexibility in scheduling Division 3 battery testing 
activities by allowing the testing to be performed during non-outage 
times.

 High Pressure Core Spray Diesel Generator Surveillance Testing
    The proposed amendments would revise TS 3.8.1, ``AC Sources-
Operating,'' by revising certain SRs pertaining to the Division 3 
diesel generator (DG). The Division 3 DG is an

[[Page 40349]]

independent source of onsite alternating current (AC) power dedicated 
to the HPCS system. The TSs currently prohibit performing the testing 
required by SRs 3.8.1.9, 3.8.1.10, 3.8.1.11, 3.8.1.12, 3.8.1.13, 
3.8.1.16, 3.8.1.17, and 3.8.1.19, in Modes 1 or 2. The proposed 
amendments would remove these Mode restrictions and allow all eight of 
the identified SRs to be performed in any operating Mode for the 
Division 3 DG. The Mode restrictions will remain applicable to the 
other two safety-related (Division 1 and Division 2) DGs.
    The proposed change will provide greater flexibility in scheduling 
Division 3 DG testing activities by allowing the testing to be 
performed during non-outage times. Having a completely tested Division 
3 DG available for the duration of a refueling outage will reduce the 
number of system re-alignments and operator workload during an outage.
    Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration 
determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has 
provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards 
consideration, which is presented below:

    1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in 
the probability or consequences of an accident previously analyzed?
    Response: No.
    The Division 3 HPCS DG electrical power subsystem and its 
associated emergency loads are accident mitigating features, not 
accident initiators. Therefore, the proposed TS changes to allow the 
performance of certain Division 3 AC Sources surveillance testing in 
any plant operating Mode will not significantly impact the 
probability of any previously evaluated accident.
    The design and function of plant equipment is not being modified 
by the proposed changes. Neither the battery test frequency nor the 
time that the TSs allow the HPCS system to be inoperable are being 
revised. Battery testing in accordance with the proposed TS changes 
will continue to verify that the Division 3 DC electrical power 
subsystem is capable of performing its required function of 
providing DC power to HPCS system equipment, consistent with the 
plant safety analyses. The battery testing will occur during a 
planned HPCS outage and therefore will not result in an increase in 
risk above the current work practices of planned HPCS system 
maintenance outages. Any risk associated with the testing of the 
Division 3 battery will be bounded and addressed with the risk 
associated with the HPCS system outage. In addition, the HPCS system 
reliability and availability are monitored and evaluated in 
relationship to Maintenance Rule goals to ensure that total outage 
times do not degrade operational safety over time.
    Testing is limited to only one electrical division of equipment 
at a time to ensure that design basis requirements are met. Should a 
fault occur while testing the Division 3 battery, there would be no 
significant impact on any accident consequences since the other two 
divisional DC electrical power subsystems and their associated 
emergency loads would be available to provide the minimum safety 
functions necessary to shut down the unit and maintain it in a 
safety shutdown condition.
    The Division 3 HPCS DG and its associated emergency loads are 
accident mitigating features, not accident initiators. Therefore, 
the proposed TS changes to allow the performance of Division 3 DG 
surveillance testing in any plant operating mode will not 
significantly impact the probability of any previously evaluated 
accident.
    The design of plant equipment is not being modified by the 
proposed changes. As such, the ability of the Division 3 DG to 
respond to a design basis accident will not be adversely impacted by 
the proposed changes. The proposed changes to the TS surveillance 
testing requirements for the Division 3 DG do not affect the 
operability requirements for the DG, as verification of such 
operability will continue to be performed as required. Continued 
verification of operability supports the capability of the Division 
3 DG to perform its required function of providing emergency power 
to HPCS system equipment, consistent with the plant safety analyses. 
Limiting testing to only one DG at a time ensures that design basis 
requirements are met. Should a fault occur while testing the 
Division 3 DG, there would be no significant impact on any accident 
consequences since the other two divisional DGs and associated 
emergency loads would be available to provide the minimum safety 
functions necessary to shut down the unit and maintain it in a safe 
shutdown condition.
    Therefore, the proposed change does not result in a significant 
increase in the probability or consequences of an accident 
previously evaluated.
    2. Does the proposed change create the possibility of a new or 
different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    No changes are being made to the plant that would introduce any 
new accident causal mechanisms. Equipment will be operated in the 
same configuration with the exception of the plant operating mode in 
which the Division 3 battery and DG surveillance testing are 
conducted. Performance of these surveillance tests while online will 
continue to verify operability of the Division 3 battery and DG. The 
battery testing will potentially minimize the out-of-service time 
for the HPCS system. The proposed amendments do not impact any plant 
systems that are accident initiators and do not adversely impact any 
accident mitigating systems.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not create the possibility of 
a new or different kind of accident from any previously evaluated.
    3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a 
margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    The proposed changes do not involve a significant reduction in 
the margin of safety.
    Margin of safety is related to confidence in the ability of the 
fission product barriers (i.e., fuel cladding, reactor coolant 
system, and primary containment) to perform their design functions 
during and following postulated accidents. The proposed changes to 
the TS surveillance testing requirements for the Division 3 AC 
Sources and DG do not affect the operability requirements, as 
verification of such operability will continue to be performed as 
required. Continued verification of operability supports the 
capability of the Division 3 AC Sources and DG to perform the 
required functions of providing emergency power to HPCS system 
equipment, consistent with the plant safety analyses.
    Consequently, the performance of the fission product barriers 
will not be adversely impacted by implementation of the proposed 
amendments. In addition, the proposed changes do not alter setpoints 
or limits established or assumed by the accident analysis.
    The additional online unavailability of the HPCS system does not 
constitute a significant reduction in a margin of safety. The 
battery testing will be performed when the HPCS system is already 
out of service for a planned system outage and therefore the testing 
will not result in an increase in risk above the current work 
practices of planned system maintenance outages, as currently 
allowed by the TS.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant 
reduction in a margin of safety.

    The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee's analysis and, based on 
this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are 
satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the 
amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration.

the Risk Informed Completion Time (RICT) Program, to TS Section 6.0, 
``Administrative Controls.'' The methodology for using the Risk 
Informed Completion Time Program is described in Nuclear Energy 
Institute (NEI) topical report NEI 06-09, ``Risk-Informed Technical 
Specifications Initiative 4b, Risk-Managed Technical Specifications 
(RMTS) Guidelines,'' Revision 0-A (ADAMS Accession No. ML12286A322), 
which was approved by the NRC on May 17, 2007. The license amendment 
request was originally noticed in the Federal Register on March 17, 
2015 (80 FR 13908). The licensee originally proposed to adopt, with 
plant specific variations, Technical Specifications Task Force (TSTF) 
Traveler TSTF-505, Revision 1, ``Provide Risk-Informed Extended 
Completion Times--RITSTF [Risk Informed TSTF] Initiative 4b'' 
(Accession No. ML111650552). By letter dated November 15, 2016 (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML16281A021), the NRC staff informed the TSTF of its 
decision to suspend NRC approval of TSTF-505, Revision 1, because of 
concerns identified during the review of plant-specific license 
amendment requests for adoption of the traveler. The NRC staff's letter 
also stated that it would continue reviewing applications already 
received and site-specific proposals to address the staff's concerns. 
Although the scope of the amendment request has not changed, the basis 
for the amendments will no longer rely on TSTF-505. The notice is being 
reissued in its entirety to include the description of the amendment 
request and proposed no significant hazards consideration 
determination.
    Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration 
determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has 
provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards 
consideration, which is presented below:

    1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in 
the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change permits the extension of Completion Times 
provided the associated risk is assessed and managed in accordance 
with the NRC[-]approved Risk Informed Completion Time Program. The 
proposed change does not involve a significant increase in the 
probability of an accident previously evaluated because the change 
involves no change to the plant or its modes of operation. The 
proposed change does not increase the consequences of an accident 
because the design-basis mitigation function of the affected systems 
is not changed and the consequences of an accident [occurring] 
during the extended Completion Time are no different from those 
[occurring] during the existing Completion Time.
    2. Does the proposed change create the possibility of a new or 
different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change does not change the design, configuration, 
or method of operation of the plant. The proposed change does not 
involve a physical alteration of the plant (no new or different kind 
of equipment will be installed).
    Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility 
of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously 
evaluated.
    3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a 
margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change permits the extension of Completion Times 
provided risk is assessed and managed in accordance with the NRC[-
]approved Risk Informed Completion Time Program. The proposed change 
implements a risk-informed configuration management program to 
assure that adequate margins of safety are maintained. Application 
of these new specifications and the configuration management program 
considers cumulative effects of multiple systems or components being 
out of service and does so more effectively than the current TS.
    Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant 
reduction in a margin of safety.

    The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee's analysis and, based on 
this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are 
satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the 
amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration.

Northern States Power Company (NSPM), Docket Nos. 50-282 and 50-306, 
Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant, Unit Nos. 1 and 2, (PINGP) 
Goodhue County, Minnesota

    Date of amendment request: May 18, 2018. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18138A402.
    Brief description of amendment request: The proposed amendments 
would modify paragraph 2.C(4)(c) of the PINGP Renewed Facility 
Operating Licenses (RFOLs) which requires the implementation of 
modification to PINGP as described in Attachment S, Table S-2, of the 
PINGP license amendment request (LAR) dated December 14, 2016, to adopt 
the National Fire Protection Association Standard (NFPA) 805. 
Specifically, NSPM is requesting the deletion of five modifications 
from Table S-2 of the December 14, 2016, LAR.
    Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration 
determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has 
provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards 
consideration, which is presented below:
    1. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant increase in 
the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed amendment adds a reference to this letter to the 
PINGP, Units 1 and 2, RFOLs. The changes encompassed by this 
proposed amendment are to delete five modifications that are no 
longer needed from a risk perspective. The revision is based on five 
changes to Table S-2 proposed in this license amendment request 
(LAR). The proposed changes have been reviewed in the fire 
Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) model approved as part of 
PINGP's transition to NFPA 805 and the results were found to be 
acceptable. Fire protection defense in depth and adequate safety 
margins are maintained with the changes proposed in this LAR.
    The proposed change does not adversely affect accident 
initiators or precursors, nor alter the design assumptions, 
conditions, and configuration of the facility or the manner in which 
the plant is operated and maintained. The proposed changes do not 
adversely affect the ability of structures, systems and components 
(SSCs) to perform their intended safety function to mitigate the 
consequences of an initiating event within the assumed acceptance 
limits. The proposed change does not increase the probability or 
consequences of an accident as verified by the risk analysis 
performed.
    Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant 
increase in the probability or consequences of an accident 
previously evaluated.
    2. Does the proposed amendment create the possibility of a new 
or different kind of accident from any previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed amendment adds a reference to this letter to the 
PINGP, Units 1 and 2, RFOLs. The changes encompassed by this 
proposed amendment are to delete five modifications that are no 
longer needed from a risk perspective. The revision is based on five 
changes to Table S-2 proposed in this LAR. The proposed changes have 
been reviewed in the fire PRA model approved as part of PINGP's 
transition to NFPA 805 and the results were found to be acceptable. 
Fire protection defense in depth and adequate safety margins are 
maintained with the changes proposed in this LAR.
    The proposed changes will not result in any new or different 
kinds of accident from that previously evaluated because it does not

[[Page 40351]]

change any precursors or equipment that is previously credited for 
accident mitigation.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not create the possibility of 
a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously 
evaluated.
    3. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant reduction 
in a margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    The proposed amendment adds a reference to this letter to the 
PINGP, Units 1 and 2, RFOLs. The changes encompassed by this 
proposed amendment are to delete five modifications that are no 
longer needed from a risk perspective. The revision is based on five 
changes to Table S-2 proposed in this LAR. The proposed changes have 
been reviewed in the fire PRA model approved as part of PINGP's 
transition to NFPA 805 and the results were found to be acceptable. 
Fire protection defense in depth and adequate safety margins are 
maintained with the changes proposed in this LAR.
    The proposed change does not adversely affect any SSCs credited 
for accident mitigation. The margins of safety previously evaluated 
are not significantly affected. The change does not affect the 
design function or capabilities of any plant systems.
    Therefore, the proposed changes will not impact or reduce any 
margins of safety previously evaluated.

    The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee's analysis and, based on 
this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are 
satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the 
amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration.

Northern States Power Company, Docket Nos. 50-282 and 50-306, Prairie 
Island Nuclear Generating Plant, Unit Nos. 1 and 2, (PINGP) Goodhue 
County, Minnesota

    Date of amendment request: June 26, 2018. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18177A450.
    Brief description of amendment request: The proposed amendments 
would revise PINGP Technical Specifications (TSs) by eliminating second 
Completion Times limiting time from discovery of failure to meet a 
limiting condition for operation (LCO). These changes are consistent 
with NRC-approved Technical Specifications Task Force (TSTF) Traveler 
TSTF-439, Revision 2, ``Eliminate Second Completion Times Limiting Time 
from Discovery of Failure to Meet an LCO.''
    Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration 
determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has 
provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards 
consideration, which is presented below:

    1. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant increase in 
the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change eliminates second Completion Times from the 
Technical Specifications. Completion Times are not an initiator to 
any accident previously evaluated. As a result, the probability of 
an accident previously evaluated is not affected. The consequences 
of an accident during the revised Completion Time are no different 
than the consequences of the same accident during the existing 
Completion Times. As a result, the consequences of an accident 
previously evaluated are not affected by this change. The proposed 
change does not alter or prevent the ability of SSCs [structures, 
systems, and components] from performing their intended function to 
mitigate the consequences of an initiating event within the assumed 
acceptance limits. The proposed change does not affect the source 
term, containment isolation, or radiological release assumptions 
used in evaluating the radiological consequences of an accident 
previously evaluated. Further, the proposed change does not increase 
the types or amounts of radioactive effluent that may be released 
offsite nor significantly increase individual or cumulative 
occupational/public radiation exposures. The proposed change is 
consistent with the safety analysis assumptions and resultant 
consequences.
    Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant 
increase in the probability or consequences of an accident 
previously evaluated.
    2. Does the proposed amendment create the possibility of a new 
or different kind of accident from any previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change does not involve a physical alteration of 
the plant (i.e., no new or different type of equipment will be 
installed) or a change in the methods governing normal plant 
operation. The proposed change does not alter any assumptions made 
in the safety analysis.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not create the possibility of 
a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously 
evaluated.
    3. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant reduction 
in a margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change to delete the second Completion Time does 
not alter the manner in which safety limits, limiting safety system 
settings, or limiting conditions for operation are determined. The 
safety analysis acceptance criteria are not affected by this change. 
The proposed change will not result in plant operation in a 
configuration outside of the design basis.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant 
reduction in a margin of safety.

    The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee's analysis and, based on 
this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are 
satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the 
amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration.

PSEG Nuclear LLC and Exelon Generation Company, LLC, Docket Nos. 50-272 
and 50-311, Salem Nuclear Generating Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2, Salem 
County, New Jersey

    Date of amendment request: June 29, 2018. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18183A343.
    Description of amendment request: The amendments would revise 
technical specification (TS) requirements in Section 3/4.0, 
``Applicability,'' regarding Limiting Condition for Operation (LCO) and 
Surveillance Requirement (SR) usage. These changes are consistent with 
NRC-approved Technical Specifications Task Force (TSTF) Traveler TSTF-
529, ``Clarify Use and Application Rules.''
    Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration 
determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has 
provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards 
consideration, which is presented below:

    1. Does the proposed change involve a significant increase in 
the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed changes to LCO 3.0.4 have no effect on the 
requirement for systems to be Operable and have no effect on the 
application of TS actions. The proposed change to SR 4.0.3 states 
that the allowance may only be used when there is a reasonable 
expectation the surveillance will be met when performed. Since the 
proposed changes do not significantly affect system Operability, the 
proposed changes will have no significant effect on the initiating 
events for accidents previously evaluated and will have no 
significant effect on the ability of the systems to mitigate 
accidents previously evaluated.
    Therefore, it is concluded that this change does not involve a 
significant increase in the probability or consequences of an 
accident previously evaluated.
    2. Does the proposed change create the possibility of a new or 
different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.

[[Page 40352]]

    The proposed change to the TS usage rules does not affect the 
design or function of any plant systems. The proposed change does 
not change the Operability requirements for plant systems or the 
actions taken when plant systems are not operable.
    Therefore, it is concluded that this change does not create the 
possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident 
previously evaluated.
    3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a 
margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change clarifies the application of LCO 3.0.4 and 
does not result in changes in plant operation. SR 4.0.3 is revised 
to allow application of SR 4.0.3 when an SR has not been previously 
performed and there is reasonable expectation that the SR will be 
met when performed. This expands the use of SR 4.0.3 while ensuring 
the affected system is capable of performing its safety function. As 
a result, plant safety is either improved or unaffected.
    Therefore, it is concluded that this change does not involve a 
significant reduction in a margin of safety.

    The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee's analysis and, based on 
this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are 
satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the 
amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration.

United States Maritime Administration (MARAD), Docket No. 50-238, 
Nuclear Ship SAVANNAH (NSS), Baltimore, Maryland

    Date of amendment request: June 19, 2018. A publically-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18173A128.
    Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment would 
revise Technical Specification (TS) Section 2.0, ``Radioactive 
Releases,'' from its original custom form to industry typical 10 CFR 
50.36a TSs for effluents from nuclear power reactors.
    Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration 
determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has 
provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards 
consideration, which is presented below:

    1. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant increase in 
the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed amendment is administrative and does not involve 
modification of any plant equipment or affect basic plant operation. 
The proposed amendment revises all of Technical Specification 
Section 2.0, Radioactive Releases from its original custom form to 
typical 10 CFR 50.36a, Technical Specifications on effluents from 
nuclear power reactors that are consistent with those of plants in 
advanced stages of decommissioning. The proposed amendment also 
deletes three Technical Specifications whose requirements are 
included in STS-005-020, Offsite Dose Calculation Manual and 
therefore, are no longer necessary as standalone Technical 
Specifications. These three Technical Specifications include one 
associated with the annual report, one associated with area 
monitoring thermoluminescent dosimeters and one associated with 
environmental monitoring.
    The NSS's reactor is not operational and the level of 
radioactivity in the NSS has significantly decreased from the levels 
that existed when the final shutdown was completed on November 8, 
1970. No aspect of any of the proposed changes is an initiator of 
any accident previously evaluated. Consequently, the probability of 
an accident previously evaluated is not significantly increased.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant 
increase in the probability or consequences of an accident 
previously evaluated.
    2. Does the proposed amendment create the possibility of a new 
or different kind of accident from any accident previously 
evaluated?
    Response: No.
    All of the proposed changes are administrative and do not 
involve physical alteration of plant equipment that was not 
previously allowed by Technical Specifications. The proposed 
amendment revises all of Technical Specification Section 2.0, 
Radioactive Releases from its original custom form to typical 10 CFR 
50.36a, Technical Specifications on effluents from nuclear power 
reactors that are consistent with those of plants in advanced stages 
of decommissioning. The proposed amendment also deletes three 
Technical Specifications whose requirements are included in STS-005-
020, Offsite Dose Calculation Manual and therefore, are no longer 
necessary as standalone Technical Specifications. These three 
Technical Specifications include one associated with the annual 
report, one associated with area monitoring thermoluminescent 
dosimeters and one associated with environmental monitoring.
    These proposed changes do not change the method by which any 
safety-related system performs its function given that all primary, 
auxiliary and secondary systems are deactivated, disabled and 
perform no active function. No new or different types of equipment 
will be installed, and the basic operation of installed equipment is 
unchanged. The methods governing plant operation and testing remain 
consistent with current safety analysis assumptions.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not create the possibility of 
a new or different kind of accident from any previously evaluated.
    3. Does the change involve a significant reduction in a margin 
of safety?
    Response: No.
    All of the proposed changes are administrative in nature. The 
proposed amendment revises all of Technical Specification Section 
2.0, Radioactive Releases from its original custom form to typical 
10 CFR 50.36a, Technical Specifications on effluents from nuclear 
power reactors that are consistent with those of plants in advanced 
stages of decommissioning. The proposed amendment also deletes three 
Technical Specifications whose requirements are included in STS-005-
020, Offsite Dose Calculation Manual and therefore, are no longer 
necessary as standalone Technical Specifications. These three 
Technical Specifications include one associated with the annual 
report, one associated with area monitoring thermoluminescent 
dosimeters and one associated with environmental monitoring.
    No margins of safety exist that are relevant to the ship's 
defueled and partially dismantled reactor. As such, there are no 
changes being made to safety analysis assumptions, safety limits or 
safety system settings that would adversely affect plant safety as a 
result of the proposed changes.
    As such, there are no changes being made to safety analysis 
assumptions, safety limits or safety system settings that would 
adversely affect plant safety or are relevant to the ship's defueled 
and partially dismantled reactor as a result of the proposed 
changes.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do not involve a significant 
reduction in a margin of safety.

    The NRC staff has reviewed the licensee's analysis and, based on 
this review, it appears that the three standards of 10 CFR 50.92(c) are 
satisfied. Therefore, the NRC staff proposes to determine that the 
amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration.
