For the reasons set forth in Section 3.2 of the NRC staff’s Safety Evaluation, which can be found at ADAMS Accession No. ML18207A262, the Commission finds that: A. the exemption is authorized by law; B. the exemption presents no undue risk to public health and safety; C. the exemption is consistent with the common defense and security; D. special circumstances are present in that the application of the rule in this circumstance is not necessary to serve the underlying purpose of the rule; 2. Accordingly, SNC is granted an exemption from the requirements to obtain prior NRC approval for any departure from Tier 2* information and an exemption from the requirement to obtain prior NRC approval for any departure from Tier 2 information that involves a change to or departure from Tier 2* information, as described in the licensee’s request dated December 21, 2017, as supplemented by letters dated April 6, May 11, June 18, August 3, August 10, and September 13, 2018, provided that each of the criteria in License Condition 2.D.(13)(a) is not met for each such departure. These exemptions are related to, and necessary for the granting of License Amendment No. 142, which is being issued concurrently with this exemption. 3. As explained in Section 6.0 of the NRC staff’s Safety Evaluation (ADAMS Accession No. ML18207A262), this exemption meets the eligibility criteria for categorical exclusion set forth in 10 CFR 51.22(c)(9). Therefore, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(b), no environmental impact statement or environmental assessment needs to be prepared in connection with the issuance of the exemption. 4. This exemption is effective as of the date of its issuance. III. License Amendment Request By letter dated December 21, 2017 (ADAMS Accession No. ML17355A416), SNC requested that the NRC amend the COLs for VEGP, Units 3 and 4, COLs NPF–91 and NPF–92.
