The surveillance requirement of TS 4.3.3.6 was revised to allow a one-time extension of the frequency of the Core Exit Temperature Instrumentation Channel Calibrations from ‘‘every refueling outage’’, which has been interpreted as 18 months, to ‘‘every 19 months.’’ Date of issuance: September 25, 2018. Effective date: As of its issuance date and shall be implemented upon approval. Amendment No.: 211. A publiclyavailable version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML18260A027; documents related to this amendment are listed in the Safety Evaluation enclosed with the amendment. [Renewed] Facility Operating License No. NPF–12: The amendment revised the facility operating license. Public comments requested as to proposed no significant hazards consideration (NSHC): Yes. An individual 14-day notice for comments was published in the Federal Register on September 10, 2018 (83 FR 45688). The notice provided an opportunity to submit comments on the Commission’s proposed NSHC determination. One comment from a member of the public was received, however it was not related to the proposed no significant hazards consideration determination or to the proposed license amendment request. The notice also provided an opportunity to request a hearing by November 9, 2018, but indicated that if the Commission makes a final NSHC determination, any such hearing would take place after issuance of the amendment. The supplemental letters dated August 31, September 11, and September 19, 2018 provided additional information that clarified the application, did not expand the scope of the application as originally noticed, and did not change the staff’s original proposed no significant hazards consideration determination as published in the Federal Register on September 10, 2018. The Commission’s related evaluation of the amendment, finding of exigent circumstances, state consultation, and final NSHC determination are contained in a Safety Evaluation dated September 25, 2018.
