II. Background Pursuant to Section 189a.(2) of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is publishing this regular biweekly notice. The Act requires the Commission to publish notice of any amendments issued, or proposed to be issued, and grants the Commission the authority to issue and make immediately effective any amendment to an operating license or combined license, as applicable, upon a determination by the Commission that such amendment involves no significant hazards consideration, notwithstanding the pendency before the Commission of a request for a hearing from any person. PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19965 III. 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 § 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 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 E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1 jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES 19966 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 88 / Tuesday, May 7, 2019 / Notices 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 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 May 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 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 E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1 jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 88 / Tuesday, May 7, 2019 / Notices 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 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 May 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 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.

Duke Energy Progress, LLC, Docket Nos. 50–325 and 50–324, Brunswick Steam Electric Plant, Units 1 and 2, Brunswick County, North Carolina Date of amendment request: February 27, 2019. A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19058A768. Description of amendment request: The proposed amendments would modify Technical Specification (TS) 5.5.12 to allow extension of the Type A and Type C test intervals. The extension is based on the adoption of the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) topical report NEI 94–01, ‘‘Industry Guideline for Implementing Performance-Based Option of 10 CFR part 50, Appendix J,’’ Revision 3–A, dated July 2012, and conditions and limitations set forth in NEI 94–01, Revision 2–A, dated October 2008. The proposed amendments would also make administrative changes to TS 5.5.12. 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 activity involves the revision of the Brunswick Steam Electric Plant (BSEP) Units 1 and 2 Technical Specification (TS) 5.5.12, Primary Containment Leakage Rate Testing Program, to allow the extension of the Type A integrated leakage rate test (ILRT) containment test interval to 15 years, and the extension of the Type C test interval to 75 months. Per the guidance provided in Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) 94–01, Industry Guideline for Implementing Performance-Based Option of 10 CFR 50, Appendix J, Revision 3–A, the current Type A test interval of 120 months (i.e., 10 years) would be extended on a permanent basis to no longer than 15 years from the last Type A test. The current Type C test interval of 60 months for selected components would be extended on a performance basis to no longer than 75 months. Extensions of up to nine months for Types A, B and C tests are permissible only for non-routine emergent conditions. The proposed interval extensions do not involve either a physical change to the plant or a change in the manner in which the plant is operated or controlled. The containment is designed to provide an essentially leak tight barrier against the uncontrolled release of radioactivity to the environment for postulated accidents. As such, the E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1 jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES 19968 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 88 / Tuesday, May 7, 2019 / Notices containment and the testing requirements invoked to periodically demonstrate the integrity of the containment exist to ensure the plant’s ability to mitigate the consequences of an accident, and do not involve the prevention or identification of any precursors of an accident. The change in Type A test frequency to once-per-fifteen-years, measured as an increase to the total integrated plant risk for those accident sequences influenced by Type A testing, based on the probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) is 4.98E–03 person-rem/ year for Unit 1 and 4.67E–03 person-rem/year for Unit 2. Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) Report No. 1009325, Revision 2–A states that a very small population dose is defined as an increase of less than 1.0 person-rem per year or less than 1 percent of the total population dose, whichever is less restrictive for the risk impact assessment of the extended ILRT intervals. This is consistent with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Final Safety Evaluation for NEI 94–01 and EPRI Report No. 1009325, Revision 2A. Moreover, the risk impact when compared to other severe accident risks is negligible. Therefore, the proposed extension does not involve a significant increase in the probability of an accident previously evaluated. In addition, as documented in NUREG– 1493, ‘‘Performance-Based Containment Leak-Test Program,’’ dated September 1995, Types B and C tests have identified a very large percentage of containment leakage paths, and the percentage of containment leakage paths that are detected only by Type A testing is very small. The BSEP Unit 1 and Unit 2 Type A test history supports this conclusion. The integrity of the containment is subject to two types of failure mechanisms that can be categorized as: (1) Activity based, and (2) time based. Activity based failure mechanisms are defined as degradation due to system and/or component modifications or maintenance. Local leak rate test requirements and administrative controls such as configuration management and procedural requirements for system restoration ensure that containment integrity is not degraded by plant modifications or maintenance activities. The design and construction requirements of the containment combined with the containment inspections performed in accordance with American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel (B&PV) Code, Section XI, Rules for Inservice Inspection of Nuclear Power Plant Components, Containment Maintenance Rule Inspections, Containment Coatings Program and TS requirements serve to provide a high degree of assurance that the containment would not degrade in a manner that is detectable only by a Type A test (ILRT). Based on the above, the proposed test interval extensions do not significantly increase the consequences of an accident previously evaluated. The proposed amendment also proposes administrative changes to the exceptions in Units 1 and 2 TS 5.5.12.c and f. TS exception 5.5.12.c reference[s] NEI 94–01 Revision 0 and TS exception 5.5.12.f reference[s] ANSI/ VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 May 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 ANS [American National Standards Institute/ American Nuclear Society] 56.8–1994. This change proposes to update the referenced documents in these two TS exceptions to reflect the adoption of NEI 94–01, Revision 3–A and ANSI/ANS 56.8–2002, accordingly. This administrative change does not impact any accidents previously evaluated. Therefore, the proposed changes do 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. The proposed amendment to the BSEP Units 1 and 2 TS 5.5.12, ‘‘Primary Containment Leakage Rate Testing Program,’’ involves the extension of the BSEP, Units 1 and 2 Type A containment test interval to 15 years and the extension of the Type C test interval to 75 months. The containment and the testing requirements to periodically demonstrate the integrity of the containment exist to ensure the plant’s ability to mitigate the consequences of an accident. The proposed change does not involve a physical modification to the plant (i.e., no new or different type of equipment will be installed) nor does it alter the design, configuration, or change the manner in which the plant is operated or controlled beyond the standard functional capabilities of the equipment. The proposed amendment also proposes administrative changes to the exceptions in Units 1 and 2 TS 5.5.12.c and f. TS exception 5.5.12.c reference[s] NEI 94–01 Revision 0 and TS exception 5.5.12.f reference[s] ANSI/ ANS 56.8–1994. This change proposes to update the referenced documents in these two TS exceptions to reflect the adoption of NEI 94–01, Revision 3–A and ANSI/ANS 56.8–2002, accordingly. This administrative change to the references listed in TS 5.5.12.c and f, does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated. Therefore, the proposed change does 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 amendment to Unit 1 and Unit 2 TS 5.5.12 involves the extension of the BSEP Type A containment test interval to 15 years and the extension of the Type C to 75 months. This amendment does not alter the manner in which safety limits, limiting safety system set points, or limiting conditions for operation are determined. The specific requirements and conditions of the TS Containment Leak Rate Testing Program exist to ensure that the degree of containment structural integrity and leak-tightness that is considered in the plant safety analysis is maintained. The overall containment leak rate limit specified by TS is maintained. The proposed change involves the extension of the interval between Type A containment leak rate tests and Type C tests for BSEP, Units 1 and 2. The proposed PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 surveillance interval extension is bounded by the 15-year ILRT interval and the 75-month Type C test interval currently authorized within NEI 94–01, Revision 3–A. Industry experience supports the conclusion that Type B and C testing detects a large percentage of containment leakage paths and that the percentage of containment leakage paths that are detected only by Type A testing is small. The containment inspections performed in accordance with Option B to 10 CFR 50, Appendix J and the overlapping inspection activities performed as part of ASME Section Xl, and the TS serve to provide a high degree of assurance that the containment would not degrade in a manner that is detectable only by Type A testing. The combination of these factors ensures that the margin of safety in the plant safety analysis is maintained. The design, operation, testing methods and acceptance criteria for Types A, B, and C containment leakage tests specified in applicable codes and standards would continue to be met, with the acceptance of this proposed change, since these are not affected by changes to the Type A and Type C test intervals. The proposed amendment also proposes administrative changes to the exceptions in Units 1 and 2 TS 5.5.12. Two exceptions listed in the Units 1 and 2 TS 5.5.12 contain references to revisions and years of the ANSI/ ANS 56.8 and NEI 94–01. Units 1 and 2 TS 5.5.12 exception c references NEI 94–01, Revision 0 and Units 1 and 2 TS 5.5.12 exception f references ANSI/ANS 56.8–1994. This change proposes to update the referenced documents in these two TS exceptions to reflect the adoption of NEI 94– 01, Revision 3–A and ANSI/ANS 56.8–2002, accordingly. This administrative change does not change how the unit is operated or maintained, thus there is no reduction in any margins of safety. 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. Attorney for licensee: Kathryn B.

A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19063B740. Description of amendment request: The proposed amendments would modify Technical Specification Surveillance Requirements (SRs) 3.4.3.2 E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 88 / Tuesday, May 7, 2019 / Notices jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES and 3.5.1.11 by replacing the current requirement to verify the safety relief valves (SRVs) open when manually actuated with an alternate requirement that verifies the SRVs are capable of being opened. Additionally, the proposed change would revise the frequency for performing these SRs to be in accordance with the Inservice Testing (IST) Program. 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 does not involve a physical alteration of the plant (i.e., no new or different type of equipment will be installed). The proposed change revises SR 3.4.3.2 and SR 3.5.1.11 by replacing the current requirement to verify the SRVs open when manually actuated with an alternate requirement that verifies the SRVs are capable of being opened through a series of overlapping tests and requires the testing to be completed on a frequency in accordance with the IST Program. The proposed SR testing will continue to demonstrate proper SRV operation without the need for in-situ testing with reactor steam. This testing fully meets the requirements of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Code for Operation and Maintenance of Nuclear Power Plants (OM Code) for safety and relief valves. Performing testing in accordance with the IST Program retains appropriate legal control over the testing methodology and specified frequency, since performance is required and is governed by a code adopted into the regulation, i.e., 10 CFR 50.55a. Therefore, the proposed change does not adversely affect the ability of structures, systems and components (SSCs) to perform their intended safety function to mitigate the consequences of event. Further, the proposed change does not increase the types and the amounts of radioactive effluent that may be released, nor significantly increase individual or cumulative occupation/public radiation exposures. Therefore, the proposed amendment 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 SR 3.4.3.2 and SR 3.5.1.11 by replacing the current requirement to verify the SRVs open when manually actuated with an alternate requirement that verifies the SRVs are capable of being opened through a series of overlapping tests and updating the frequency to be in accordance with the IST Program. It VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 May 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 does not require any modification to the plant and it does not alter the design configuration, or method of operation of plant equipment beyond its normal functional capabilities. The proposed change will not introduce failure modes that could result in a new accident, and the change does not alter assumptions made in the safety analysis. Therefore, the proposed amendment 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 SR 3.4.3.2 and SR 3.5.1.11 by replacing the current requirement to verify the SRVs open when manually actuated with an alternate requirement that verifies the SRVs are capable of being opened through a series of overlapping tests and updating the frequency to be in accordance with the IST Program. The proposed SR testing will continue to demonstrate proper SRV operation without the need for in-situ testing with reactor steam. It does not alter or exceed a design basis or safety limit. There is no change being made to safety analysis assumptions or the safety limits that would adversely affect plant safety as a result of the proposed change. Margins of safety are unaffected by the proposed change and the applicable requirements of 10 CFR 50.36(c)(3) will continue to be met. Therefore, the proposed amendment does not result in a significant reduction in the 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.

Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment would revise the full compliance date for the fire protection program transition license condition to allow an extension for the implementation of the remaining modifications necessary to achieve full compliance with 10 CFR 50.48(c). Basis for proposed no significant hazards consideration determination: As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19969 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 to the PNP [renewed facility operating license] RFOL to change the full compliance date for the fire protection program transition license condition to allow additional time for the implementation of the remaining modifications necessary to achieve full compliance with 10 CFR 50.48(c) is administrative in nature. This change does not alter accident analysis assumptions, add any initiators, or affect the function of plant systems or the manner in which systems are operated, maintained, modified, tested, or inspected. The proposed change does not require any plant modifications which affect the performance capability of the structures, systems, and components relied upon to mitigate the consequences of postulated accidents, and has no impact on the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. Therefore, 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. The proposed change to the PNP RFOL [Renewed Facility Operating License] to change the full compliance date for the fire protection program transition license condition to allow additional time for the implementation of the remaining modifications necessary to achieve full compliance with 10 CFR 50.48(c) is administrative in nature. This proposed change does not alter accident analysis assumptions, add any initiators, or affect the function of plant systems or the manner in which systems are operated, maintained, modified, tested, or inspected. The proposed change does not require any plant modifications which affect the performance capability of the structures, systems, and components relied upon to mitigate the consequences of postulated accidents and does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated. Therefore, this change does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from an accident previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. The proposed change to the PNP RFOL to change the full compliance implementation date for the fire protection program transition license condition to allow additional time for implementation of the remaining modifications necessary to achieve full compliance with 10 CFR 50.48(c) is administrative in nature. Plant safety margins E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1 19970 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 88 / Tuesday, May 7, 2019 / Notices are established through limiting conditions for operation, limiting safety system settings, and safety limits specified in the technical specifications. Because there is no change to established safety margins as a result of this change, the proposed change does not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. Therefore, 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.

Publiclyavailable versions are in ADAMS under Accession Nos. ML18352B063 and ML19050A399, respectively. Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment would revise the technical specifications to permit the use of risk-informed completion times in accordance with Technical Specification Task Force (TSTF)-505, Revision 2, ‘‘Provide Risk-Informed Extended Completion Times—RITSTF Initiative 4b,’’ which is Attachment 3 to TSTF letter dated July 2, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18183A493). 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 permit the extension of Completion Times provided the associated risk is assessed and managed in accordance with the NRC approved RiskInformed Completion Time Program. The proposed changes do not involve a significant increase in the probability of an accident previously evaluated because the changes involve no change to the plant or its modes of operation. The proposed changes VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 May 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 do 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 during the extended Completion Time are no different from those during the existing Completion Time. 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 change the design, configuration, or method of operation of the plant. The proposed changes do not involve a physical alteration of the plant (no new or different kind of equipment will be installed). 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. The proposed changes permit the extension of Completion Times provided that risk is assessed and managed in accordance with the NRC approved Risk-Informed Completion Time Program. The proposed changes implement 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 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.

Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment would revise PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 technical specifications (TS) for inoperable snubbers by adding Limiting Condition for Operation (LCO) 3.0.9. The change is consistent with the NRCapproved Technical Specification Task Force (TSTF) Standard Technical Specifications Change Traveler, TSTF– 372, ‘‘Addition of LCO 3.0.8, lnoperability of Snubbers.’’ The availability of this TS improvement was announced in the Federal Register on May 4, 2005 (70 FR 23252). Because Braidwood Station, Units 1 and 2, and Byron Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2, already have a TS identified as LCO 3.0.8, adoption of TSTF–372 will be identified as LCO 3.0.9. 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 allows a delay time before declaring supported Technical Specifications (TS) systems inoperable when the associated snubber(s) cannot perform its required safety function. Entrance into Actions or delaying entrance into Actions is not an initiator of any accident previously evaluated. Consequently, the probability of an accident previously evaluated is not significantly increased. The consequences of an accident while relying on the delay time allowed before declaring a TS supported system inoperable and taking its Conditions and Required Actions are no different than the consequences of an accident under the same plant conditions while relying on the existing TS supported system Conditions and Required Actions. Therefore, the consequences of an accident previously evaluated are not significantly increased by this change. Therefore, this 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 allows a delay time before declaring supported TS systems inoperable when the associated snubber(s) cannot perform its required safety function. The proposed change does not involve a physical alteration of the plant (no new or different type of equipment will be installed) or a change in the methods governing normal plant operation. 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? E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 88 / Tuesday, May 7, 2019 / Notices Response: No. The proposed change allows a delay time before declaring supported TS systems inoperable when the associated snubber(s) cannot perform its required safety function. The proposed change restores an allowance in the pre-Improved Standard Technical Specifications (ISTS) conversion TS that was unintentionally eliminated by the conversion. The pre-ISTS TS were considered to provide an adequate margin of safety for plant operation, as does the postISTS conversion TS. Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety.

A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19045A617. Description of amendment request: The amendments would revise the Technical Specifications (TS) related to certain equipment shared between the two units when one unit is shut down. Additionally, the amendments remove an inappropriate footnote that allows an exception from TS 4.0.4. 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 technical specification requirements associated with the proposed change to the TS are not initiators of any accidents previously evaluated, so the probability of accidents previously evaluated is unaffected by the proposed change. The proposed change does not alter the design, function, or operation of any plant structure, system, or component (SSC). The capability of any operable TS-required SSC to perform its specified safety function is not impacted by the proposed change. As a result, the outcomes of accidents previously evaluated VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 May 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 are unaffected. 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 amendment create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed change does not challenge the integrity or performance of any safetyrelated systems. No plant equipment is installed or removed, and the change does not alter the design, physical configuration, or method of operation of any plant SSC. No physical changes are made to the plant, so no new causal mechanisms are introduced. Therefore, the proposed change to the TS does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated. Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. The ability of any operable SSC to perform its designated safety function is unaffected by the proposed change. The proposed change does not alter any safety analyses assumptions, safety limits, limiting safety system settings, or method of operating the plant. The change does not adversely affect plant operating margins or the reliability of equipment credited in the safety analyses. Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant reduction in the 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: Debbie Hendell, Managing Attorney—Nuclear, Florida Power & Light Company, 700 Universe Blvd. MS LAW/JB, Juno Beach, FL 33408–0420. NRC Branch Chief: Undine Shoop. Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) Docket No. 50–285, Fort Calhoun Station, Unit No. 1 (FCS), Fort Calhoun, Nebraska Date of amendment request: February 28, 2019. A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19064A758. Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment would replace the FCS Permanently Defueled Emergency Plan and associated Emergency Action Level (EAL) technical bases document with the Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation Only Emergency Plan (IOEP) and its associated Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) EAL PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19971 Technical Bases Document. The IOEP will be used at FCS during the period when all spent fuel is stored in the FCS ISFSI. This proposed change reflects the complete removal of all fuel from the spent fuel pool (SFP) and permits specific reductions in the size and makeup of the Emergency Response Organization due to the elimination of the remaining design basis accident related to spent fuel handling. OPPD expects that all spent fuel will be completely transferred to the ISFSI by the middle of 2020. 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 modify the FCS facility operating license by revising the emergency plan and EAL scheme. FCS has permanently ceased power operations and is permanently defueled. The proposed amendment is conditioned on all spent nuclear fuel being removed from wet storage in the SFP and placed in dry storage within the ISFSI. Occurrence of postulated accidents associated with spent fuel stored in a SFP is no longer credible in a SFP devoid of such fuel. The proposed amendment has no effect on plant systems, structures, or components (SSC) and no effect on the capability of any plant SSC to perform its design function. The proposed amendment would not increase the likelihood of the malfunction of any plant SSC. The proposed amendment would have no effect on any of the previously evaluated accidents in the FCS [Defueled Safety Analysis Report] DSAR. Because FCS has permanently ceased power operations, the generation of fission products has ceased and the remaining source term continues to decay. This continues to significantly reduce the consequences of previously evaluated postulated accidents. 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 accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed amendment constitutes a revision of the emergency planning function commensurate with the ongoing and anticipated reduction in radiological source term at FCS. The proposed amendment does not involve a physical alteration of the plant. No new or different types of equipment will be installed and there are no physical modifications to existing equipment as a result of the E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1 19972 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 88 / Tuesday, May 7, 2019 / Notices proposed amendment. Similarly, the proposed amendment would not physically change any SSC involved in the mitigation of any postulated accidents. Thus, no new initiators or precursors of a new or different kind of accident are created. Furthermore, the proposed amendment does not create the possibility of a new failure mode associated with any equipment or personnel failures. The credible events for the ISFSI remain unchanged. Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. Because the 10 CFR part 50 license for FCS no longer authorizes operation of the reactor or emplacement or retention of fuel into the reactor vessel, as specified in 10 CFR 50.82(a)(2), the occurrence of postulated accidents associated with reactor operation is no longer credible. With all spent nuclear fuel transferred out of wet storage from the SFP and placed in dry storage within the ISFSI, a fuel handling accident is no longer credible. There are no credible events that would result in radiological releases beyond the site boundary exceeding the EPA PAG exposure levels, as detailed in the EPA’s PAG Manual ‘‘Protective Action Guides and Planning Guidance for Radiological Incidents’’ dated January 2017 (EPA PAG Manual). The proposed amendment does not involve a change in the plant’s design, configuration, or operation. The proposed amendment does not affect either the way in which the plant SSCs perform their safety function or their design margins. Because there is no change to the physical design of the plant, there is no change to these margins. Therefore, the proposed change does not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES 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.

Description of amendment request: The proposed amendments would revise the intake structure physical VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 May 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 security classification in the DCPP Security Plan and Emergency Plan. 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 the Diablo Canyon Power [Nuclear] Plant (DCPP) emergency action levels (EALs) do not physically impact the plant structures, systems, or components (SSCs) or the manner in which SSCs perform their design function. The proposed changes neither adversely affect accident initiators or precursors, nor alter design assumptions. The proposed changes do not alter or prevent the ability of SSCs to perform their intended function to mitigate the consequences of an initiating event within assumed acceptance limits. No operating procedures or administrative controls that function to prevent or mitigate accidents are affected by the proposed changes. A concurrent accident with a hostile action is not assumed to occur. 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 accident from any accident previously evaluated? Response: No. The proposed changes do not involve a physical alteration of the plant (i.e., no new or different type of equipment will be installed or removed) or a change in the method of plant operation. The proposed changes will not introduce failure modes that could result in a new accident, and the change[s] [do] not alter assumptions made in the safety analysis. The proposed changes to the DCPP EALs are not initiators of any accidents. Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility of a new or different 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 associated with the ability of the fission product barriers (i.e., fuel cladding, reactor coolant system pressure boundary, and containment structure) to limit the level of radiation dose to the public. The proposed changes do not impact operation of the plant or its response to transients or accidents. The proposed changes do not affect the Technical Specifications or the Operating Licenses. The proposed changes do not involve a change in the method of plant operation, and no accident analyses will be affected by the proposed changes. Additionally, the proposed changes will not relax any criteria used to establish safety limits and will not PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 relax any safety system settings. The safety analysis acceptance criteria are not affected by these changes. The proposed changes will not result in plant operation in a configuration outside the design basis. The proposed changes do not adversely affect systems that respond to safely shut down the plant and to maintain the plant in a safe shutdown condition. The Emergency Plan will continue to activate an emergency response commensurate with the extent of degradation of plant safety. 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.

Response: No. E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1 jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 88 / Tuesday, May 7, 2019 / Notices The proposed changes do not affect the safety limits as described in the plantspecific TS. In addition, the limiting safety system settings and limiting control settings continue to be met with the proposed changes to the plant-specific TS SRs. The proposed changes do not adversely affect the operation of any systems or equipment that initiate an analyzed accident or alter any structures, systems, and components (SSCs) accident initiator or initiating sequence of events. The proposed changes do not result in any increase in probability of an analyzed accident occurring and maintain the initial conditions and operating limits required by the accident analysis, and the analyses of normal operation and anticipated operational occurrences, so that the consequences of postulated accidents are not changed. Therefore, the requested 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 changes do not affect the safety limits as described in the plantspecific TS. In addition, the limiting safety system settings and limiting control settings continue to be met with the proposed changes to the plant-specific TS limiting conditions for operation, applicability, actions, and SRs. The proposed changes do not affect the operation of any systems or equipment that may initiate a new or different kind of accident or alter any SSC such that a new accident initiator or initiating sequence of events is created. These proposed changes do not adversely affect any other SSC design functions or methods of operation in a manner that results in a new failure mode, malfunction, or sequence of events that affect safety-related or nonsafety-related equipment. Therefore, this activity does not allow for a new fission product release path, result in a new fission product barrier failure mode, or create a new sequence of events that results in significant fuel cladding failures. Therefore, the requested amendment does 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 changes do not affect the safety limits as described in the plantspecific TS. In addition, the limiting safety system settings and limiting control settings continue to be met with the proposed changes to the plant-specific TS limiting conditions for operation, applicability, actions, and SRs. The proposed changes do not affect the initial conditions and operating limits required by the accident analysis, and the analyses of normal operation and anticipated operational occurrences, so that the acceptance limits specified in the Updated Final Safety Analysis Report (UFSAR) are not exceeded. The proposed changes satisfy the same safety functions in VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 May 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 accordance with the same requirements as stated in the UFSAR. These changes do not adversely affect any design code, function, design analysis, safety analysis input or result, or design/safety margin. No safety analysis or design basis acceptance limit/criterion is challenged or exceeded by the proposed changes, and no margin of safety is reduced. Therefore, the requested 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. Attorney for licensee: Mr. M.

A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19087A208. Description of amendment request: The amendments would eliminate the second Completion Times from certain Technical Specifications (TSs). The second Completion Times limit the time allowed from discovery of failure to meet a limiting condition for operation (LCO) until the LCO is met. The proposed changes are consistent with previously 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, with NRC staff edits in square brackets: 1. Does the proposed change 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 TS. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19973 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 structures, systems, or 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 significant increase [in] 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 change create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident 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 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 to delete the second Completion Times does not alter the manner in which safety limits, limiting safety system settings, or LCOs 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 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: Damon D.

A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19031C826. Description of amendment request: The amendments would replace existing technical specification (TS) requirements related to operations with a potential for draining the reactor vessel (OPDRV) with new requirements on reactor pressure vessel (RPV) water inventory control (WIC) to continue to protect Safety Limit 2.1.1.3. Safety Limit 2.1.1.3 requires reactor vessel water level to be greater than the top of active irradiated fuel. 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 replaces existing TS requirements related to OPDRVs with new requirements on RPV WIC that will protect Safety Limit 2.1.1.3. Draining of RPV water inventory in Mode 4 (i.e., cold shutdown) and Mode 5 (i.e., refueling) is not an accident previously evaluated and, therefore, replacing the existing TS controls to prevent or mitigate such an event with a new set of controls has no effect on any accident previously evaluated. RPV water inventory control in Mode 4 or Mode 5 is not an initiator of any accident previously evaluated. The existing OPDRV controls or the proposed RPV WIC controls are not mitigating actions assumed in any accident previously evaluated. The proposed change reduces the probability of an unexpected draining event (which is not a previously evaluated accident) by imposing new requirements on the limiting time in which an unexpected draining event could result in the reactor vessel water level dropping to the top of the active fuel (TAF). These controls require cognizance of the plant configuration and control of configurations with unacceptably short drain times. These requirements reduce the probability of an unexpected draining event. The current TS requirements are only mitigating actions and impose no requirements that reduce the probability of an unexpected draining event. The proposed change reduces the consequences of an unexpected draining event (which is not a previously evaluated accident) by requiring an Emergency Core Cooling System (ECCS) subsystem to be operable at all times in Modes 4 and 5. The current TS requirements do not require any VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 May 06, 2019 Jkt 247001 water injection systems, ECCS or otherwise, to be Operable in certain conditions in Mode 5. The change in requirement from two ECCS subsystems to one ECCS subsystem in Modes 4 and 5 does not significantly affect the consequences of an unexpected draining event because the proposed Required Actions ensure equipment is available within the limiting drain time that is as capable of mitigating the event as the current requirements. The proposed controls provide escalating compensatory measures to be established as calculated drain times decrease, such as verification of a second method of water injection and additional confirmations that containment and/or filtration would be available if needed. The proposed change reduces or eliminates some requirements that were determined to be unnecessary to manage the consequences of an unexpected draining event, such as automatic initiation of an ECCS subsystem and control room ventilation. These changes do not affect the consequences of any accident previously evaluated because a draining event in Modes 4 and 5 is not a previously evaluated accident and the requirements are not needed to adequately respond to a draining event. 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 replaces existing TS requirements related to OPDRVs with new requirements on RPV WIC that will protect Safety Limit 2.1.1.3. The proposed change will not alter the design function of the equipment involved. Under the proposed change, some systems that are currently required to be operable during OPDRVs would be required to be available within the limiting drain time or to be in service depending on the limiting drain time. Should those systems be unable to be placed into service, the consequences are no different than if those systems were unable to perform their function under the current TS requirements. The event of concern under the current requirements and the proposed change is an unexpected draining event. The proposed change does not create new failure mechanisms, malfunctions, or accident initiators that would cause a draining event or a new or different kind of accident not previously evaluated or included in the design and licensing bases. Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any previously evaluated. 3. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety? Response: No. The proposed change replaces existing TS requirements related to OPDRVs with new requirements on RPV WIC. The current requirements do not have a stated safety basis and no margin of safety is established in the licensing basis. The safety basis for the new requirements is to protect Safety Limit PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2.1.1.3. New requirements are added to determine the limiting time in which the RPV water inventory could drain to the top of the fuel in the reactor vessel should an unexpected draining event occur. Plant configurations that could result in lowering the RPV water level to the TAF within one hour are now prohibited. New escalating compensatory measures based on the limiting drain time replace the current controls. The proposed TS establish a safety margin by providing defense-in-depth to ensure that the Safety Limit is protected and to protect the public health and safety. While some less restrictive requirements are proposed for plant configurations with long calculated drain times, the overall effect of the change is to improve plant safety and to add safety margin. 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.

A publicly-available version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19064A591. Description of amendment request: The amendment would revise Technical Specification (TS) 3.6.3, ‘‘Containment Isolation Valves,’’ to remove use of a blind flange to meet Limiting Condition for Operation (LCO) 3.6.3, Required Action D.1. In addition, a change to Surveillance Requirement (SR) 3.6.3.1 is proposed to remove use of a blind flange. 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 TS LCO 3.6.3 and SR 3.6.3.1 have no effect on the requirement for systems to be OPERABLE and have no effect on the application of TS actions. Since the proposed change does not significantly E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 88 / Tuesday, May 7, 2019 / Notices affect system OPERABILITY the proposed change 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. The proposed change to update the TS 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 updates TS LCO 3.6.3, Required Action D.1 to remove use of a blind flange. It does not result in changes in plant operation. The proposed change to SR 3.6.3.1 removes the use of a blind flange. 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. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES 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.

II. Background

    Pursuant to Section 189a.(2) of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as 
amended (the Act), the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is 
publishing this regular biweekly notice. The Act requires the 
Commission to publish notice of any amendments issued, or proposed to 
be issued, and grants the Commission the authority to issue and make 
immediately effective any amendment to an operating license or combined 
license, as applicable, upon a determination by the Commission that 
such amendment involves no significant hazards consideration, 
notwithstanding the pendency before the Commission of a request for a 
hearing from any person.

III. 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 Sec.  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

[[Page 19966]]

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 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

[[Page 19967]]

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 [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

Duke Energy Progress, LLC, Docket Nos. 50-325 and 50-324, Brunswick 
Steam Electric Plant, Units 1 and 2, Brunswick County, North Carolina

    Date of amendment request: February 27, 2019. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19058A768.
    Description of amendment request: The proposed amendments would 
modify Technical Specification (TS) 5.5.12 to allow extension of the 
Type A and Type C test intervals. The extension is based on the 
adoption of the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) topical report NEI 94-
01, ``Industry Guideline for Implementing Performance-Based Option of 
10 CFR part 50, Appendix J,'' Revision 3-A, dated July 2012, and 
conditions and limitations set forth in NEI 94-01, Revision 2-A, dated 
October 2008. The proposed amendments would also make administrative 
changes to TS 5.5.12.
    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 activity involves the revision of the Brunswick 
Steam Electric Plant (BSEP) Units 1 and 2 Technical Specification 
(TS) 5.5.12, Primary Containment Leakage Rate Testing Program, to 
allow the extension of the Type A integrated leakage rate test 
(ILRT) containment test interval to 15 years, and the extension of 
the Type C test interval to 75 months. Per the guidance provided in 
Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) 94-01, Industry Guideline for 
Implementing Performance-Based Option of 10 CFR 50, Appendix J, 
Revision 3-A, the current Type A test interval of 120 months (i.e., 
10 years) would be extended on a permanent basis to no longer than 
15 years from the last Type A test. The current Type C test interval 
of 60 months for selected components would be extended on a 
performance basis to no longer than 75 months. Extensions of up to 
nine months for Types A, B and C tests are permissible only for non-
routine emergent conditions.
    The proposed interval extensions do not involve either a 
physical change to the plant or a change in the manner in which the 
plant is operated or controlled. The containment is designed to 
provide an essentially leak tight barrier against the uncontrolled 
release of radioactivity to the environment for postulated 
accidents. As such, the

[[Page 19968]]

containment and the testing requirements invoked to periodically 
demonstrate the integrity of the containment exist to ensure the 
plant's ability to mitigate the consequences of an accident, and do 
not involve the prevention or identification of any precursors of an 
accident.
    The change in Type A test frequency to once-per-fifteen-years, 
measured as an increase to the total integrated plant risk for those 
accident sequences influenced by Type A testing, based on the 
probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) is 4.98E-03 person-rem/year for 
Unit 1 and 4.67E-03 person-rem/year for Unit 2. Electric Power 
Research Institute (EPRI) Report No. 1009325, Revision 2-A states 
that a very small population dose is defined as an increase of less 
than 1.0 person-rem per year or less than 1 percent of the total 
population dose, whichever is less restrictive for the risk impact 
assessment of the extended ILRT intervals. This is consistent with 
the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Final Safety Evaluation for 
NEI 94-01 and EPRI Report No. 1009325, Revision 2A. Moreover, the 
risk impact when compared to other severe accident risks is 
negligible. Therefore, the proposed extension does not involve a 
significant increase in the probability of an accident previously 
evaluated.
    In addition, as documented in NUREG-1493, ``Performance-Based 
Containment Leak-Test Program,'' dated September 1995, Types B and C 
tests have identified a very large percentage of containment leakage 
paths, and the percentage of containment leakage paths that are 
detected only by Type A testing is very small. The BSEP Unit 1 and 
Unit 2 Type A test history supports this conclusion.
    The integrity of the containment is subject to two types of 
failure mechanisms that can be categorized as: (1) Activity based, 
and (2) time based. Activity based failure mechanisms are defined as 
degradation due to system and/or component modifications or 
maintenance. Local leak rate test requirements and administrative 
controls such as configuration management and procedural 
requirements for system restoration ensure that containment 
integrity is not degraded by plant modifications or maintenance 
activities. The design and construction requirements of the 
containment combined with the containment inspections performed in 
accordance with American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) 
Boiler and Pressure Vessel (B&PV) Code, Section XI, Rules for 
Inservice Inspection of Nuclear Power Plant Components, Containment 
Maintenance Rule Inspections, Containment Coatings Program and TS 
requirements serve to provide a high degree of assurance that the 
containment would not degrade in a manner that is detectable only by 
a Type A test (ILRT). Based on the above, the proposed test interval 
extensions do not significantly increase the consequences of an 
accident previously evaluated.
    The proposed amendment also proposes administrative changes to 
the exceptions in Units 1 and 2 TS 5.5.12.c and f. TS exception 
5.5.12.c reference[s] NEI 94-01 Revision 0 and TS exception 5.5.12.f 
reference[s] ANSI/ANS [American National Standards Institute/
American Nuclear Society] 56.8-1994. This change proposes to update 
the referenced documents in these two TS exceptions to reflect the 
adoption of NEI 94-01, Revision 3-A and ANSI/ANS 56.8-2002, 
accordingly. This administrative change does not impact any 
accidents previously evaluated.
    Therefore, the proposed changes do 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.
    The proposed amendment to the BSEP Units 1 and 2 TS 5.5.12, 
``Primary Containment Leakage Rate Testing Program,'' involves the 
extension of the BSEP, Units 1 and 2 Type A containment test 
interval to 15 years and the extension of the Type C test interval 
to 75 months. The containment and the testing requirements to 
periodically demonstrate the integrity of the containment exist to 
ensure the plant's ability to mitigate the consequences of an 
accident.
    The proposed change does not involve a physical modification to 
the plant (i.e., no new or different type of equipment will be 
installed) nor does it alter the design, configuration, or change 
the manner in which the plant is operated or controlled beyond the 
standard functional capabilities of the equipment.
    The proposed amendment also proposes administrative changes to 
the exceptions in Units 1 and 2 TS 5.5.12.c and f. TS exception 
5.5.12.c reference[s] NEI 94-01 Revision 0 and TS exception 5.5.12.f 
reference[s] ANSI/ANS 56.8-1994. This change proposes to update the 
referenced documents in these two TS exceptions to reflect the 
adoption of NEI 94-01, Revision 3-A and ANSI/ANS 56.8-2002, 
accordingly. This administrative change to the references listed in 
TS 5.5.12.c and f, does not create the possibility of a new or 
different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated.
    Therefore, the proposed change does 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 amendment to Unit 1 and Unit 2 TS 5.5.12 involves 
the extension of the BSEP Type A containment test interval to 15 
years and the extension of the Type C to 75 months. This amendment 
does not alter the manner in which safety limits, limiting safety 
system set points, or limiting conditions for operation are 
determined. The specific requirements and conditions of the TS 
Containment Leak Rate Testing Program exist to ensure that the 
degree of containment structural integrity and leak-tightness that 
is considered in the plant safety analysis is maintained. The 
overall containment leak rate limit specified by TS is maintained.
    The proposed change involves the extension of the interval 
between Type A containment leak rate tests and Type C tests for 
BSEP, Units 1 and 2. The proposed surveillance interval extension is 
bounded by the 15-year ILRT interval and the 75-month Type C test 
interval currently authorized within NEI 94-01, Revision 3-A. 
Industry experience supports the conclusion that Type B and C 
testing detects a large percentage of containment leakage paths and 
that the percentage of containment leakage paths that are detected 
only by Type A testing is small. The containment inspections 
performed in accordance with Option B to 10 CFR 50, Appendix J and 
the overlapping inspection activities performed as part of ASME 
Section Xl, and the TS serve to provide a high degree of assurance 
that the containment would not degrade in a manner that is 
detectable only by Type A testing. The combination of these factors 
ensures that the margin of safety in the plant safety analysis is 
maintained. The design, operation, testing methods and acceptance 
criteria for Types A, B, and C containment leakage tests specified 
in applicable codes and standards would continue to be met, with the 
acceptance of this proposed change, since these are not affected by 
changes to the Type A and Type C test intervals.
    The proposed amendment also proposes administrative changes to 
the exceptions in Units 1 and 2 TS 5.5.12. Two exceptions listed in 
the Units 1 and 2 TS 5.5.12 contain references to revisions and 
years of the ANSI/ANS 56.8 and NEI 94-01. Units 1 and 2 TS 5.5.12 
exception c references NEI 94-01, Revision 0 and Units 1 and 2 TS 
5.5.12 exception f references ANSI/ANS 56.8-1994. This change 
proposes to update the referenced documents in these two TS 
exceptions to reflect the adoption of NEI 94-01, Revision 3-A and 
ANSI/ANS 56.8-2002, accordingly. This administrative change does not 
change how the unit is operated or maintained, thus there is no 
reduction in any margins of safety.
    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.

Duke Energy Progress, LLC, Docket Nos. 50-325 and 50-324, Brunswick 
Steam Electric Plant, Units 1 and 2, Brunswick County, North Carolina

    Date of amendment request: March 4, 2019. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19063B740.
    Description of amendment request: The proposed amendments would 
modify Technical Specification Surveillance Requirements (SRs) 3.4.3.2

[[Page 19969]]

and 3.5.1.11 by replacing the current requirement to verify the safety 
relief valves (SRVs) open when manually actuated with an alternate 
requirement that verifies the SRVs are capable of being opened. 
Additionally, the proposed change would revise the frequency for 
performing these SRs to be in accordance with the Inservice Testing 
(IST) Program.
    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 does not involve a physical alteration of 
the plant (i.e., no new or different type of equipment will be 
installed). The proposed change revises SR 3.4.3.2 and SR 3.5.1.11 
by replacing the current requirement to verify the SRVs open when 
manually actuated with an alternate requirement that verifies the 
SRVs are capable of being opened through a series of overlapping 
tests and requires the testing to be completed on a frequency in 
accordance with the IST Program. The proposed SR testing will 
continue to demonstrate proper SRV operation without the need for 
in-situ testing with reactor steam. This testing fully meets the 
requirements of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) 
Code for Operation and Maintenance of Nuclear Power Plants (OM Code) 
for safety and relief valves. Performing testing in accordance with 
the IST Program retains appropriate legal control over the testing 
methodology and specified frequency, since performance is required 
and is governed by a code adopted into the regulation, i.e., 10 CFR 
50.55a. Therefore, the proposed change does not adversely affect the 
ability of structures, systems and components (SSCs) to perform 
their intended safety function to mitigate the consequences of 
event. Further, the proposed change does not increase the types and 
the amounts of radioactive effluent that may be released, nor 
significantly increase individual or cumulative occupation/public 
radiation exposures.
    Therefore, the proposed amendment 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 SR 3.4.3.2 and SR 3.5.1.11 by 
replacing the current requirement to verify the SRVs open when 
manually actuated with an alternate requirement that verifies the 
SRVs are capable of being opened through a series of overlapping 
tests and updating the frequency to be in accordance with the IST 
Program. It does not require any modification to the plant and it 
does not alter the design configuration, or method of operation of 
plant equipment beyond its normal functional capabilities. The 
proposed change will not introduce failure modes that could result 
in a new accident, and the change does not alter assumptions made in 
the safety analysis.
    Therefore, the proposed amendment 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 SR 3.4.3.2 and SR 3.5.1.11 by 
replacing the current requirement to verify the SRVs open when 
manually actuated with an alternate requirement that verifies the 
SRVs are capable of being opened through a series of overlapping 
tests and updating the frequency to be in accordance with the IST 
Program. The proposed SR testing will continue to demonstrate proper 
SRV operation without the need for in-situ testing with reactor 
steam. It does not alter or exceed a design basis or safety limit. 
There is no change being made to safety analysis assumptions or the 
safety limits that would adversely affect plant safety as a result 
of the proposed change. Margins of safety are unaffected by the 
proposed change and the applicable requirements of 10 CFR 
50.36(c)(3) will continue to be met.
    Therefore, the proposed amendment does not result in a 
significant reduction in the 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

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

    Date of amendment request: March 8, 2019. A publicly available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19067A004.
    Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment would 
revise the full compliance date for the fire protection program 
transition license condition to allow an extension for the 
implementation of the remaining modifications necessary to achieve full 
compliance with 10 CFR 50.48(c).
    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 to the PNP [renewed facility operating 
license] RFOL to change the full compliance date for the fire 
protection program transition license condition to allow additional 
time for the implementation of the remaining modifications necessary 
to achieve full compliance with 10 CFR 50.48(c) is administrative in 
nature. This change does not alter accident analysis assumptions, 
add any initiators, or affect the function of plant systems or the 
manner in which systems are operated, maintained, modified, tested, 
or inspected. The proposed change does not require any plant 
modifications which affect the performance capability of the 
structures, systems, and components relied upon to mitigate the 
consequences of postulated accidents, and has no impact on the 
probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated.
    Therefore, 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.
    The proposed change to the PNP RFOL [Renewed Facility Operating 
License] to change the full compliance date for the fire protection 
program transition license condition to allow additional time for 
the implementation of the remaining modifications necessary to 
achieve full compliance with 10 CFR 50.48(c) is administrative in 
nature. This proposed change does not alter accident analysis 
assumptions, add any initiators, or affect the function of plant 
systems or the manner in which systems are operated, maintained, 
modified, tested, or inspected. The proposed change does not require 
any plant modifications which affect the performance capability of 
the structures, systems, and components relied upon to mitigate the 
consequences of postulated accidents and does not create the 
possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident 
previously evaluated.
    Therefore, this change does not create the possibility of a new 
or different kind of accident from an accident previously evaluated.
    3. Does the proposed change involve a significant reduction in a 
margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change to the PNP RFOL to change the full 
compliance implementation date for the fire protection program 
transition license condition to allow additional time for 
implementation of the remaining modifications necessary to achieve 
full compliance with 10 CFR 50.48(c) is administrative in nature. 
Plant safety margins

[[Page 19970]]

are established through limiting conditions for operation, limiting 
safety system settings, and safety limits specified in the technical 
specifications. Because there is no change to established safety 
margins as a result of this change, the proposed change does not 
involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety.
    Therefore, 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

    Date of amendment request: December 13, 2018, as supplemented by 
letter dated February 14, 2019. Publicly-available versions are in 
ADAMS under Accession Nos. ML18352B063 and ML19050A399, respectively.
    Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment would 
revise the technical specifications to permit the use of risk-informed 
completion times in accordance with Technical Specification Task Force 
(TSTF)-505, Revision 2, ``Provide Risk-Informed Extended Completion 
Times--RITSTF Initiative 4b,'' which is Attachment 3 to TSTF letter 
dated July 2, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18183A493).
    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 permit 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 changes do not involve a significant increase in the 
probability of an accident previously evaluated because the changes 
involve no change to the plant or its modes of operation. The 
proposed changes do 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 during the 
extended Completion Time are no different from those during the 
existing Completion Time.
    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 change the design, configuration, or 
method of operation of the plant. The proposed changes do not 
involve a physical alteration of the plant (no new or different kind 
of equipment will be installed).
    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.
    The proposed changes permit the extension of Completion Times 
provided that risk is assessed and managed in accordance with the 
NRC approved Risk-Informed Completion Time Program. The proposed 
changes implement 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 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.

County, Illinois

    Date of amendment request: January 31, 2019. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19032A149.
    Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment would 
revise technical specifications (TS) for inoperable snubbers by adding 
Limiting Condition for Operation (LCO) 3.0.9. The change is consistent 
with the NRC-approved Technical Specification Task Force (TSTF) 
Standard Technical Specifications Change Traveler, TSTF-372, ``Addition 
of LCO 3.0.8, lnoperability of Snubbers.'' The availability of this TS 
improvement was announced in the Federal Register on May 4, 2005 (70 FR 
23252). Because Braidwood Station, Units 1 and 2, and Byron Station, 
Unit Nos. 1 and 2, already have a TS identified as LCO 3.0.8, adoption 
of TSTF-372 will be identified as LCO 3.0.9.
    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 allows a delay time before declaring 
supported Technical Specifications (TS) systems inoperable when the 
associated snubber(s) cannot perform its required safety function. 
Entrance into Actions or delaying entrance into Actions is not an 
initiator of any accident previously evaluated. Consequently, the 
probability of an accident previously evaluated is not significantly 
increased. The consequences of an accident while relying on the 
delay time allowed before declaring a TS supported system inoperable 
and taking its Conditions and Required Actions are no different than 
the consequences of an accident under the same plant conditions 
while relying on the existing TS supported system Conditions and 
Required Actions. Therefore, the consequences of an accident 
previously evaluated are not significantly increased by this change.
    Therefore, this 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 allows a delay time before declaring 
supported TS systems inoperable when the associated snubber(s) 
cannot perform its required safety function. The proposed change 
does not involve a physical alteration of the plant (no new or 
different type of equipment will be installed) or a change in the 
methods governing normal plant operation.
    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?

[[Page 19971]]

    Response: No.
    The proposed change allows a delay time before declaring 
supported TS systems inoperable when the associated snubber(s) 
cannot perform its required safety function. The proposed change 
restores an allowance in the pre-Improved Standard Technical 
Specifications (ISTS) conversion TS that was unintentionally 
eliminated by the conversion. The pre-ISTS TS were considered to 
provide an adequate margin of safety for plant operation, as does 
the post-ISTS conversion 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

Florida Power and Light Company, Docket No. 50-250 and 50-251, Turkey 
Point Nuclear Generating Unit Nos. 3 and 4, Miami-Dade County, Florida

    Date of amendment request: February 14, 2019. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19045A617.
    Description of amendment request: The amendments would revise the 
Technical Specifications (TS) related to certain equipment shared 
between the two units when one unit is shut down. Additionally, the 
amendments remove an inappropriate footnote that allows an exception 
from TS 4.0.4.
    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 technical specification requirements associated with the 
proposed change to the TS are not initiators of any accidents 
previously evaluated, so the probability of accidents previously 
evaluated is unaffected by the proposed change. The proposed change 
does not alter the design, function, or operation of any plant 
structure, system, or component (SSC). The capability of any 
operable TS-required SSC to perform its specified safety function is 
not impacted by the proposed change. As a result, the outcomes of 
accidents previously evaluated are unaffected. 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 amendment create the possibility of a new 
or different kind of accident from any accident previously 
evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change does not challenge the integrity or 
performance of any safety-related systems. No plant equipment is 
installed or removed, and the change does not alter the design, 
physical configuration, or method of operation of any plant SSC. No 
physical changes are made to the plant, so no new causal mechanisms 
are introduced. Therefore, the proposed change to the TS does not 
create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from 
any accident previously evaluated. Therefore, the proposed change 
does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of 
accident from any previously evaluated.
    3. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant reduction 
in a margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    The ability of any operable SSC to perform its designated safety 
function is unaffected by the proposed change. The proposed change 
does not alter any safety analyses assumptions, safety limits, 
limiting safety system settings, or method of operating the plant. 
The change does not adversely affect plant operating margins or the 
reliability of equipment credited in the safety analyses. Therefore, 
the proposed change does not involve a significant reduction in the 
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.

Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) Docket No. 50-285, Fort Calhoun 
Station, Unit No. 1 (FCS), Fort Calhoun, Nebraska

    Date of amendment request: February 28, 2019. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19064A758.
    Description of amendment request: The proposed amendment would 
replace the FCS Permanently Defueled Emergency Plan and associated 
Emergency Action Level (EAL) technical bases document with the 
Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation Only Emergency Plan (IOEP) 
and its associated Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) 
EAL Technical Bases Document. The IOEP will be used at FCS during the 
period when all spent fuel is stored in the FCS ISFSI. This proposed 
change reflects the complete removal of all fuel from the spent fuel 
pool (SFP) and permits specific reductions in the size and makeup of 
the Emergency Response Organization due to the elimination of the 
remaining design basis accident related to spent fuel handling. OPPD 
expects that all spent fuel will be completely transferred to the ISFSI 
by the middle of 2020.
    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 modify the FCS facility operating 
license by revising the emergency plan and EAL scheme. FCS has 
permanently ceased power operations and is permanently defueled. The 
proposed amendment is conditioned on all spent nuclear fuel being 
removed from wet storage in the SFP and placed in dry storage within 
the ISFSI. Occurrence of postulated accidents associated with spent 
fuel stored in a SFP is no longer credible in a SFP devoid of such 
fuel. The proposed amendment has no effect on plant systems, 
structures, or components (SSC) and no effect on the capability of 
any plant SSC to perform its design function. The proposed amendment 
would not increase the likelihood of the malfunction of any plant 
SSC. The proposed amendment would have no effect on any of the 
previously evaluated accidents in the FCS [Defueled Safety Analysis 
Report] DSAR.
    Because FCS has permanently ceased power operations, the 
generation of fission products has ceased and the remaining source 
term continues to decay. This continues to significantly reduce the 
consequences of previously evaluated postulated accidents.
    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 accident previously 
evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed amendment constitutes a revision of the emergency 
planning function commensurate with the ongoing and anticipated 
reduction in radiological source term at FCS.
    The proposed amendment does not involve a physical alteration of 
the plant. No new or different types of equipment will be installed 
and there are no physical modifications to existing equipment as a 
result of the

[[Page 19972]]

proposed amendment. Similarly, the proposed amendment would not 
physically change any SSC involved in the mitigation of any 
postulated accidents. Thus, no new initiators or precursors of a new 
or different kind of accident are created. Furthermore, the proposed 
amendment does not create the possibility of a new failure mode 
associated with any equipment or personnel failures. The credible 
events for the ISFSI remain unchanged.
    Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility 
of a new or different kind of accident from any previously 
evaluated.
    3. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant reduction 
in a margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    Because the 10 CFR part 50 license for FCS no longer authorizes 
operation of the reactor or emplacement or retention of fuel into 
the reactor vessel, as specified in 10 CFR 50.82(a)(2), the 
occurrence of postulated accidents associated with reactor operation 
is no longer credible. With all spent nuclear fuel transferred out 
of wet storage from the SFP and placed in dry storage within the 
ISFSI, a fuel handling accident is no longer credible. There are no 
credible events that would result in radiological releases beyond 
the site boundary exceeding the EPA PAG exposure levels, as detailed 
in the EPA's PAG Manual ``Protective Action Guides and Planning 
Guidance for Radiological Incidents'' dated January 2017 (EPA PAG 
Manual).
    The proposed amendment does not involve a change in the plant's 
design, configuration, or operation. The proposed amendment does not 
affect either the way in which the plant SSCs perform their safety 
function or their design margins. Because there is no change to the 
physical design of the plant, there is no change to these margins.
    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

Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Docket Nos. 50-275 and 50-323, Diablo 
Canyon Nuclear Power Plant, Units 1 and 2 (DCPP), San Luis Obispo 
County, California

    Date of amendment request: February 14, 2019. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19045A698.
    Description of amendment request: The proposed amendments would 
revise the intake structure physical security classification in the 
DCPP Security Plan and Emergency Plan.
    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 the Diablo Canyon Power [Nuclear] Plant 
(DCPP) emergency action levels (EALs) do not physically impact the 
plant structures, systems, or components (SSCs) or the manner in 
which SSCs perform their design function. The proposed changes 
neither adversely affect accident initiators or precursors, nor 
alter design assumptions. The proposed changes do not alter or 
prevent the ability of SSCs to perform their intended function to 
mitigate the consequences of an initiating event within assumed 
acceptance limits. No operating procedures or administrative 
controls that function to prevent or mitigate accidents are affected 
by the proposed changes. A concurrent accident with a hostile action 
is not assumed to occur.
    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 accident from any accident previously evaluated?
    Response: No.
    The proposed changes do not involve a physical alteration of the 
plant (i.e., no new or different type of equipment will be installed 
or removed) or a change in the method of plant operation. The 
proposed changes will not introduce failure modes that could result 
in a new accident, and the change[s] [do] not alter assumptions made 
in the safety analysis. The proposed changes to the DCPP EALs are 
not initiators of any accidents.
    Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility 
of a new or different 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 associated with the ability of the fission 
product barriers (i.e., fuel cladding, reactor coolant system 
pressure boundary, and containment structure) to limit the level of 
radiation dose to the public.
    The proposed changes do not impact operation of the plant or its 
response to transients or accidents. The proposed changes do not 
affect the Technical Specifications or the Operating Licenses. The 
proposed changes do not involve a change in the method of plant 
operation, and no accident analyses will be affected by the proposed 
changes. Additionally, the proposed changes will not relax any 
criteria used to establish safety limits and will not relax any 
safety system settings. The safety analysis acceptance criteria are 
not affected by these changes. The proposed changes will not result 
in plant operation in a configuration outside the design basis. The 
proposed changes do not adversely affect systems that respond to 
safely shut down the plant and to maintain the plant in a safe 
shutdown condition. The Emergency Plan will continue to activate an 
emergency response commensurate with the extent of degradation of 
plant safety.
    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 requests involve no significant hazards consideration.

Southern Nuclear Operating Company, Docket Nos. 52-025 and 52-026, 
Vogtle Electric Generating Plant Units 3 and 4, Burke County, Georgia

    Date of amendment request: March 25, 2019. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19084A309.
    Description of amendment request: The requested amendment proposes 
to change the Technical Specifications (TS) (Combined License Appendix 
A), as well as plant-specific Tier 2 information. Specifically, the 
requested amendment proposes to change TS Sections 1.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 
3.9, and 5.5. The Surveillance Requirements (SRs) requiring manual 
Channel Checks, Channel Operational Tests, Actuation Logic Tests and 
Actuation Logic Output Tests to be performed on Protection and Safety 
Monitoring System (PMS) components are proposed to be removed from the 
TSs. The approach for satisfying the reactor trip and engineered safety 
feature actuation system response time test SRs for the PMS racks is 
proposed to be changed.
    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.

[[Page 19973]]

    The proposed changes do not affect the safety limits as 
described in the plant-specific TS. In addition, the limiting safety 
system settings and limiting control settings continue to be met 
with the proposed changes to the plant-specific TS SRs. The proposed 
changes do not adversely affect the operation of any systems or 
equipment that initiate an analyzed accident or alter any 
structures, systems, and components (SSCs) accident initiator or 
initiating sequence of events.
    The proposed changes do not result in any increase in 
probability of an analyzed accident occurring and maintain the 
initial conditions and operating limits required by the accident 
analysis, and the analyses of normal operation and anticipated 
operational occurrences, so that the consequences of postulated 
accidents are not changed.
    Therefore, the requested 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 changes do not affect the safety limits as 
described in the plant- specific TS. In addition, the limiting 
safety system settings and limiting control settings continue to be 
met with the proposed changes to the plant-specific TS limiting 
conditions for operation, applicability, actions, and SRs. The 
proposed changes do not affect the operation of any systems or 
equipment that may initiate a new or different kind of accident or 
alter any SSC such that a new accident initiator or initiating 
sequence of events is created.
    These proposed changes do not adversely affect any other SSC 
design functions or methods of operation in a manner that results in 
a new failure mode, malfunction, or sequence of events that affect 
safety-related or nonsafety-related equipment. Therefore, this 
activity does not allow for a new fission product release path, 
result in a new fission product barrier failure mode, or create a 
new sequence of events that results in significant fuel cladding 
failures.
    Therefore, the requested amendment does 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 changes do not affect the safety limits as 
described in the plant- specific TS. In addition, the limiting 
safety system settings and limiting control settings continue to be 
met with the proposed changes to the plant-specific TS limiting 
conditions for operation, applicability, actions, and SRs. The 
proposed changes do not affect the initial conditions and operating 
limits required by the accident analysis, and the analyses of normal 
operation and anticipated operational occurrences, so that the 
acceptance limits specified in the Updated Final Safety Analysis 
Report (UFSAR) are not exceeded. The proposed changes satisfy the 
same safety functions in accordance with the same requirements as 
stated in the UFSAR. These changes do not adversely affect any 
design code, function, design analysis, safety analysis input or 
result, or design/safety margin.
    No safety analysis or design basis acceptance limit/criterion is 
challenged or exceeded by the proposed changes, and no margin of 
safety is reduced.
    Therefore, the requested 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.

Susquehanna Nuclear, LLC, Docket Nos. 50-387 and 50-388, Susquehanna 
Steam Electric Station, Units 1 and 2, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania

    Date of amendment request: March 28, 2019. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19087A208.
    Description of amendment request: The amendments would eliminate 
the second Completion Times from certain Technical Specifications 
(TSs). The second Completion Times limit the time allowed from 
discovery of failure to meet a limiting condition for operation (LCO) 
until the LCO is met. The proposed changes are consistent with 
previously 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, with NRC staff edits in square 
brackets:

    1. Does the proposed change 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 
TS. 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 structures, systems, or 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 significant 
increase [in] 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 change create the possibility of a new or 
different kind of accident from any accident 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 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 to delete the second Completion Times does 
not alter the manner in which safety limits, limiting safety system 
settings, or LCOs 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 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.

Tennessee Valley Authority, Docket Nos. 50-259, 50-260, and 50-296, 
Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant, Units 1, 2, and 3, Limestone County, 
Alabama

    Date of amendment request: January 25, 2019. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19031C826.
    Description of amendment request: The amendments would replace 
existing technical specification (TS) requirements related to 
operations with a potential for draining the reactor vessel (OPDRV) 
with new requirements on reactor pressure vessel (RPV) water inventory 
control (WIC) to continue to protect Safety Limit 2.1.1.3. Safety Limit 
2.1.1.3 requires reactor vessel water level to be greater than the top 
of active irradiated fuel.
    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 replaces existing TS requirements related to 
OPDRVs with new requirements on RPV WIC that will protect Safety 
Limit 2.1.1.3. Draining of RPV water inventory in Mode 4 (i.e., cold 
shutdown) and Mode 5 (i.e., refueling) is not an accident previously 
evaluated and, therefore, replacing the existing TS controls to 
prevent or mitigate such an event with a new set of controls has no 
effect on any accident previously evaluated. RPV water inventory 
control in Mode 4 or Mode 5 is not an initiator of any accident 
previously evaluated. The existing OPDRV controls or the proposed 
RPV WIC controls are not mitigating actions assumed in any accident 
previously evaluated.
    The proposed change reduces the probability of an unexpected 
draining event (which is not a previously evaluated accident) by 
imposing new requirements on the limiting time in which an 
unexpected draining event could result in the reactor vessel water 
level dropping to the top of the active fuel (TAF). These controls 
require cognizance of the plant configuration and control of 
configurations with unacceptably short drain times.
    These requirements reduce the probability of an unexpected 
draining event. The current TS requirements are only mitigating 
actions and impose no requirements that reduce the probability of an 
unexpected draining event.
    The proposed change reduces the consequences of an unexpected 
draining event (which is not a previously evaluated accident) by 
requiring an Emergency Core Cooling System (ECCS) subsystem to be 
operable at all times in Modes 4 and 5. The current TS requirements 
do not require any water injection systems, ECCS or otherwise, to be 
Operable in certain conditions in Mode 5. The change in requirement 
from two ECCS subsystems to one ECCS subsystem in Modes 4 and 5 does 
not significantly affect the consequences of an unexpected draining 
event because the proposed Required Actions ensure equipment is 
available within the limiting drain time that is as capable of 
mitigating the event as the current requirements. The proposed 
controls provide escalating compensatory measures to be established 
as calculated drain times decrease, such as verification of a second 
method of water injection and additional confirmations that 
containment and/or filtration would be available if needed.
    The proposed change reduces or eliminates some requirements that 
were determined to be unnecessary to manage the consequences of an 
unexpected draining event, such as automatic initiation of an ECCS 
subsystem and control room ventilation. These changes do not affect 
the consequences of any accident previously evaluated because a 
draining event in Modes 4 and 5 is not a previously evaluated 
accident and the requirements are not needed to adequately respond 
to a draining event.
    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 replaces existing TS requirements related to 
OPDRVs with new requirements on RPV WIC that will protect Safety 
Limit 2.1.1.3. The proposed change will not alter the design 
function of the equipment involved. Under the proposed change, some 
systems that are currently required to be operable during OPDRVs 
would be required to be available within the limiting drain time or 
to be in service depending on the limiting drain time. Should those 
systems be unable to be placed into service, the consequences are no 
different than if those systems were unable to perform their 
function under the current TS requirements.
    The event of concern under the current requirements and the 
proposed change is an unexpected draining event. The proposed change 
does not create new failure mechanisms, malfunctions, or accident 
initiators that would cause a draining event or a new or different 
kind of accident not previously evaluated or included in the design 
and licensing bases.
    Therefore, the proposed change does not create the possibility 
of a new or different kind of accident from any previously 
evaluated.
    3. Does the proposed amendment involve a significant reduction 
in a margin of safety?
    Response: No.
    The proposed change replaces existing TS requirements related to 
OPDRVs with new requirements on RPV WIC. The current requirements do 
not have a stated safety basis and no margin of safety is 
established in the licensing basis. The safety basis for the new 
requirements is to protect Safety Limit 2.1.1.3. New requirements 
are added to determine the limiting time in which the RPV water 
inventory could drain to the top of the fuel in the reactor vessel 
should an unexpected draining event occur. Plant configurations that 
could result in lowering the RPV water level to the TAF within one 
hour are now prohibited. New escalating compensatory measures based 
on the limiting drain time replace the current controls. The 
proposed TS establish a safety margin by providing defense-in-depth 
to ensure that the Safety Limit is protected and to protect the 
public health and safety. While some less restrictive requirements 
are proposed for plant configurations with long calculated drain 
times, the overall effect of the change is to improve plant safety 
and to add safety margin.
    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.

Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corporation, Docket No. 50-482, Wolf Creek 
Generating Station, Unit 1, Coffey County, Kansas

    Date of amendment request: February 25, 2019. A publicly-available 
version is in ADAMS under Accession No. ML19064A591.
    Description of amendment request: The amendment would revise 
Technical Specification (TS) 3.6.3, ``Containment Isolation Valves,'' 
to remove use of a blind flange to meet Limiting Condition for 
Operation (LCO) 3.6.3, Required Action D.1. In addition, a change to 
Surveillance Requirement (SR) 3.6.3.1 is proposed to remove use of a 
blind flange.
    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 TS LCO 3.6.3 and SR 3.6.3.1 have no 
effect on the requirement for systems to be OPERABLE and have no 
effect on the application of TS actions. Since the proposed change 
does not significantly

[[Page 19975]]

affect system OPERABILITY the proposed change 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.
    The proposed change to update the TS 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 updates TS LCO 3.6.3, Required Action D.1 to 
remove use of a blind flange. It does not result in changes in plant 
operation. The proposed change to SR 3.6.3.1 removes the use of a 
blind flange. 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
