ACTION: Determination of the successful completion of inspections, tests, and analyses. AGENCY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff has determined SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:13 May 03, 2021 Jkt 253001 The proposed action does not require changes to the ISFSI’s licensed routine operations, maintenance activities, or monitoring programs, nor does it require new construction or landdisturbing activities. The scope of the proposed action concerns only the NRC’s review and approval of Florida Power & Light Company’s initial and NextEra Energy’s updated DFPs. The scope of the proposed action does not include, and will not result in, the review and approval of decontamination or decommissioning activities or license termination for the ISFSI or for other parts of Seabrook Station Unit No. 1. Therefore, the NRC staff determined that approval of the initial and updated DFPs for the Seabrook Station Unit No. 1 ISFSI will not significantly affect the quality of the human environment, and accordingly, the staff has concluded that a FONSI is appropriate. The NRC staff further finds that preparation of an environmental impact statement (EIS) is not required. FPL, 2012. ISFSI DFPs, dated December 17, 2012. ADAMS Accession No. ML12354A134. FPL, 2014.

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.

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)

    SNC has submitted an IPCN under 10 CFR 52.99(c)(2), informing the

or that acceptance criteria are met for:

VEGP Unit 4 ITAAC

    2.3.05.03a.ii (344).

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 52.103(g). Any future 
updates to the status of these ITAAC can be found by selecting the link 
``ITAAC Status Report'' on the NRC's websites: https://www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/col-holder/vog3.html and https://www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/col-holder/vog4.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.
