SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 26, ‘‘Fitness for Duty Programs,’’ Section 26.205, ‘‘Work hours.’’ The exemptions from 10 CFR 26.205(d)(1) through (7) ensure that the control of work hours and management of worker fatigue do not unduly limit licensee flexibility in using personnel resources to most effectively manage the impacts of the COVID–19 PHE on maintaining the safe operation of these facilities. Specifically, the licensees stated that their staffing levels are affected or are expected to be affected by the COVID–19 PHE, and they can no longer meet or likely will not meet the work hour controls of 10 CFR 26.205(d)(1) through (d)(7). The licensees have committed to effecting site-specific administrative controls for COVID–19 PHE fatigue-management for personnel specified in 10 CFR 26.4(a).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    The NRC issued seven exemptions in response to requests dated 
between April 2, 2020, and April 18, 2020, from Energy Harbor Nuclear 
Corp.; Exelon Generation Company, LLC; NextEra Energy Seabrook, LLC; 
and Arizona Public Service Company. The exemptions allow the licensees 
to deviate from specific requirements (cited below) of Title 10 of the 
Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 26, ``Fitness for Duty 
Programs,'' Section 26.205, ``Work hours.''
    The exemptions from 10 CFR 26.205(d)(1) through (7) ensure that the 
control of work hours and management of worker fatigue do not unduly 
limit licensee flexibility in using personnel resources to most 
effectively manage the impacts of the COVID-19 PHE on maintaining the 
safe operation of these facilities. Specifically, the licensees stated 
that their staffing levels are affected or are expected to be affected 
by the COVID-19 PHE, and they can no longer meet or likely will not 
meet the work hour controls of 10 CFR 26.205(d)(1) through (d)(7). The 
licensees have committed to effecting site-specific administrative 
controls for COVID-19 PHE fatigue-management for personnel specified in 
10 CFR 26.4(a).
    The NRC is periodically providing this compiled listing of related 
exemptions using a single Federal Register notice for COVID-19 related 
exemptions, instead of issuing individual Federal Register notices. The 
compiled listing provides transparency regarding the number of 
exemptions the NRC is issuing related to a given regulatory 
requirement. Additionally, the NRC publishes a list of approved 
licensing actions related to the COVID-19 PHE on its public website at
