II. NRC Staff Determination of Completion of ITAAC

    The NRC staff has determined that the specified inspections, tests, 
and analyses have been successfully completed, and that the specified 
acceptance criteria are met. The documentation of the NRC staff's 
determination is in the ITAAC Closure Verification Evaluation Form 
(VEF) for each ITAAC. The VEF is a form that represents the NRC staff's 
structured process for reviewing ICNs. Each ICN presents a narrative 
description of how the ITAAC was completed. The NRC's ICN review 
process involves a determination on whether, among other things: (1) 
Each ICN provides sufficient information, including a summary of the 
methodology used to perform the ITAAC, to demonstrate that the 
inspections, tests, and analyses have been successfully completed; (2) 
each ICN provides sufficient information to demonstrate that the 
acceptance criteria of the ITAAC are met; and (3) any NRC inspections 
for the ITAAC have been completed and any ITAAC findings associated 
with that ITAAC have been closed.
    The NRC staff's determination of the successful completion of these 
ITAAC is based on information available at this time and is subject to 
the licensee's ability to maintain the condition that the acceptance 
criteria are met. If the staff receives new information that suggests 
the staff's determination on any of these ITAAC is incorrect, then the 
staff will determine whether to reopen that ITAAC (including 
withdrawing the staff's determination on that ITAAC). The NRC staff's 
determination will be used to support a subsequent finding, pursuant to 
10 CFR 52.103(g), at the end of construction that all acceptance 
criteria in the combined license are met. The ITAAC closure process is 
not finalized for these ITAAC until the NRC makes an affirmative 
finding under 10 CFR 52.103(g). Any future updates to the status of 
these ITAAC will be reflected on the NRC's website at http://www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/oversight/itaac.html.
    This notice fulfills the staff's obligations under 10 CFR 
52.99(e)(1) to publish a notice in the Federal Register of the NRC 
staff's determination of the successful completion of inspections, 
tests, and analyses.
