Definition of Contribution; Extension of Comment Period, 2070-2071 [2019-01194]

Download as PDF 2070 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 25 / Wednesday, February 6, 2019 / Proposed Rules amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with PROPOSALS1 natural hazards at nuclear power plants in a manner consistent with R2.2. As noted in Enclosure 2, while R2.2 focused on seismic and flooding hazards, the proposed framework is intended to accommodate a range of natural hazards including earthquakes, flooding, and extreme weather, such as high winds. In the SRM associated with SECY–16–0144, dated May 3, 2017 (ADAMS Accession No. ML17123A453), the Commission approved the staff’s recommendations for the development of these process enhancements. The staff is implementing the process enhancements described in Enclosure 2 of SECY–16–0144 via a process that the staff subsequently identified as the ‘‘Process for Ongoing Assessment of Natural Hazard Information’’ (POANHI). The staff’s implementation of these process enhancements is ongoing. A cross-agency team has been formed to implement the POANHI. The team is developing procedures and has begun testing and populating the Natural Hazards Information Digest. The completion and implementation date for POANHI is October 2019. In summary, the NRC is denying the petition because the staff is addressing the issue raised in the petition through the enhancement of existing NRC processes and the development of associated staff procedures to ensure that the staff proactively and routinely aggregates and assesses new information related to natural hazards (including, but not limited to, seismic and flooding hazards). The Commission-approved approach for ensuring the ongoing, routine, proactive, and systematic assessment of natural hazards information is described in SECY–15– 0137 and SECY–16–0144 and associated staff requirements memorandums dated February 8, 2016, and May 3, 2017. III. Stakeholder Interactions The NRC held several public meetings to solicit input from stakeholders during the development of SECY–15–0137. This included a public meeting held on October 6, 2015, in which the NRC staff provided the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS) Subcommittee on Fukushima with an overview of the staff’s plans to resolve all open Near-Term Task Force Tier 2 and 3 recommendations. The staff also discussed these plans with the ACRS Full Committee on November 5, 2015. In addition, the staff provided an overview of its proposed resolution plans for all of the open Tier 2 and 3 recommendations during a Category 2 public meeting held on October 20, 2015. Further, the staff briefed the Commission on the status of Tier 2 and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Feb 05, 2019 Jkt 247001 3 activities during public meetings held on November 17, 2015, and May 17, 2016. In addition to the meetings discussed above, the NRC held a public meeting of the Fukushima Joint Steering Committee on August 25, 2016, where the NRC discussed the framework for the ongoing assessment of natural hazards information, described in Enclosure 2 of SECY–16–0144, with external stakeholders (ADAMS Accession No. ML16252A221). On September 22, 2016, the NRC issued a document titled, ‘‘White Paper for Staff Assessment of Fukushima Lessons Learned Associated with Other Natural Hazards, Periodic Confirmation of Natural Hazards, and Real-Time Radiation Monitoring’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML16230A384). The NRC staff briefed the ACRS Subcommittee on Fukushima on October 19, 2016, and the ACRS Full Committee on November, 30, 2016, on the topics covered in the white paper. IV. Conclusion For the reasons cited in this document, the NRC is denying PRM– 50–99. As explained above, the petition relied upon R2.2 of the NRC’s postFukushima Near-Term Task Force report. PRM–50–99 did not present any significant new information or arguments. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 31st day of January, 2019. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Annette L. Vietti-Cook, Secretary of the Commission.
