(SNC), Georgia Power Company, Oglethorpe Power Corporation, MEAG Power SPVM, LLC., MEAG Power SPVJ, LLC., MEAG Power SPVP, LLC., and the City of Dalton, Georgia, (hereafter called the licensee) has submitted ITAAC closure notifications (ICNs) under § 52.99(c)(1) of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), informing the NRC that the licensee has successfully performed the required inspections, tests, and analyses, and that the acceptance criteria are met for: VEGP Unit 3 ITAAC 2.1.02.08d.iv (35), 2.1.02.12a.ix (61), 2.1.03.02a (69), 2.2.03.08c.i.02 (178), 3.3.00.06a (787), and E.3.9.05.01.04 (852).

Licensee ITAAC Post-Closure Notifications (IPCNs) Since the last Federal Register notice of the NRC staff’s determinations of successful completion of inspections, tests, and analyses for VEGP Units 3 and 4, the NRC staff has not made additional determinations of the successful completion of inspections, tests, and analyses based on licensee IPCNs submitted under 10 CFR 52.99(c)(2). III. NRC Staff Determination of Completion of ITAAC The NRC staff has determined that the specified inspections, tests, and analyses have been successfully completed, and that the specified acceptance criteria are met. The documentation of the NRC staff’s determination is in the ITAAC Closure Verification Evaluation Form (VEF) for each ITAAC. The VEF is a form that represents the NRC staff’s structured process for reviewing ICNs and IPCNs. Each ICN presents a narrative description of how the ITAAC was completed. The NRC’s ICN review process involves a determination on whether, among other things: (1) Each ICN provides sufficient information, including a summary of the methodology used to perform the ITAAC, to demonstrate that the inspections, tests, and analyses have been successfully completed; (2) each ICN provides sufficient information to demonstrate that the acceptance criteria of the ITAAC are met; and (3) any NRC inspections for the ITAAC have been completed and any ITAAC findings associated with that ITAAC have been closed. The NRC’s review process for IPCNs is similar to that for ICNs but focuses on how the licensee addressed the new, material information giving rise to the IPCN. The NRC staff’s determination of the successful completion of these ITAAC is based on information available at this time and is subject to the licensee’s ability to maintain the condition that the acceptance criteria are met. If the NRC staff receives new information that suggests the NRC staff’s determination on any of these ITAAC is incorrect, then the NRC staff will determine whether to reopen that ITAAC (including withdrawing the NRC staff’s determination on that ITAAC). The NRC staff’s determination will be used to support a subsequent finding, pursuant to 10 CFR 52.103(g), at the end of construction that all acceptance criteria in the combined license are met. The ITAAC closure process is not finalized for these ITAAC until the NRC makes an affirmative finding under 10 CFR E:\FR\FM\18MYN1.SGM 18MYN1 29756 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 96 / Monday, May 18, 2020 / Notices 52.103(g). Any future updates to the status of these ITAAC will be reflected on the NRC’s website at https:// www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/ oversight/itaac.html. This notice fulfills the NRC staff’s obligations under 10 CFR 52.99(e)(1) to publish a notice in the Federal Register of the NRC staff’s determination of the successful completion of inspections, tests, and analyses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Licensee Notification of Completion of ITAAC

    Southern Nuclear Operating Company, Inc. (SNC), Georgia Power 
Company, Oglethorpe Power Corporation, MEAG Power SPVM, LLC., MEAG 
Power SPVJ, LLC., MEAG Power SPVP, LLC., and the City of Dalton, 
Georgia, (hereafter called the licensee) has submitted ITAAC closure 
notifications (ICNs) under Sec.  52.99(c)(1) of title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (10 CFR), informing the NRC that the licensee has 
successfully performed the required inspections, tests, and analyses, 
and that the acceptance criteria are met for:

VEGP Unit 3 ITAAC

    2.1.02.08d.iv (35), 2.1.02.12a.ix (61), 2.1.03.02a (69), 
2.2.03.08c.i.02 (178), 3.3.00.06a (787), and E.3.9.05.01.04 (852).

VEGP Unit 4 ITAAC

    The ITAAC for VEGP Unit 3 are in Appendix C of the VEGP Unit 3 
combined license (ADAMS Accession No. ML14100A106). The ITAAC for VEGP 
Unit 4 are in Appendix C of VEGP Unit 4 combined license (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML14100A135).

II. Licensee ITAAC Post-Closure Notifications (IPCNs)

    Since the last Federal Register notice of the NRC staff's 
determinations of successful completion of inspections, tests, and 
analyses for VEGP Units 3 and 4, the NRC staff has not made additional 
determinations of the successful completion of inspections, tests, and 
analyses based on licensee IPCNs submitted under 10 CFR 52.99(c)(2).

III. NRC Staff Determination of Completion of ITAAC

    The NRC staff has determined that the specified inspections, tests, 
and analyses have been successfully completed, and that the specified 
acceptance criteria are met. The documentation of the NRC staff's 
determination is in the ITAAC Closure Verification Evaluation Form 
(VEF) for each ITAAC. The VEF is a form that represents the NRC staff's 
structured process for reviewing ICNs and IPCNs.
    Each ICN presents a narrative description of how the ITAAC was 
completed. The NRC's ICN review process involves a determination on 
whether, among other things: (1) Each ICN provides sufficient 
information, including a summary of the methodology used to perform the 
ITAAC, to demonstrate that the inspections, tests, and analyses have 
been successfully completed; (2) each ICN provides sufficient 
information to demonstrate that the acceptance criteria of the ITAAC 
are met; and (3) any NRC inspections for the ITAAC have been completed 
and any ITAAC findings associated with that ITAAC have been closed. The 
NRC's review process for IPCNs is similar to that for ICNs but focuses 
on how the licensee addressed the new, material information giving rise 
to the IPCN.
    The NRC staff's determination of the successful completion of these 
ITAAC is based on information available at this time and is subject to 
the licensee's ability to maintain the condition that the acceptance 
criteria are met. If the NRC staff receives new information that 
suggests the NRC staff's determination on any of these ITAAC is 
incorrect, then the NRC staff will determine whether to reopen that 
ITAAC (including withdrawing the NRC staff's determination on that 
ITAAC). The NRC staff's determination will be used to support a 
subsequent finding, pursuant to 10 CFR 52.103(g), at the end of 
construction that all acceptance criteria in the combined license are 
met. The ITAAC closure process is not finalized for these ITAAC until 
the NRC makes an affirmative finding under 10 CFR

[[Page 29756]]

52.103(g). Any future updates to the status of these ITAAC will be 
reflected on the NRC's website at https://www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/oversight/itaac.html.
    This notice fulfills the NRC staff's obligations under 10 CFR 
52.99(e)(1) to publish a notice in the Federal Register of the NRC 
staff's determination of the successful completion of inspections, 
tests, and analyses.
