Therefore, the requirements of 10 CFR 51.22(c)(25)(ii) and (iii) are met. Requirements in 10 CFR 51.22(c)(25)(iv) The proposed exemption is not associated with construction or major renovations of any buildings or structures. Therefore, the requirements of 10 CFR 51.22(c)(25)(iv) are met because there is no significant construction impact. Requirements in 10 CFR 51.22(c)(25)(v) The proposed exemption does not concern the source term (i.e., potential amount of radiation in an accident) or mitigation. Thus, there is no significant increase in the potential for or consequences from radiological accidents. Therefore, the requirements of 10 CFR 51.22(c)(25)(v) are met. Requirements in 10 CFR 51.22(c)(25)(vi) The proposed exemption is from the requirement to have a licensed senior operator approve suspensions of security measures in an emergency or during severe weather. Therefore, the requirement from which the exemption is sought involves safeguard plans, materials control, and managerial and organizational matters and, thus, the requirements of 10 CFR 51.22(c)(25)(vi) are met. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Determination Regarding 10 CFR 51.22(c)(25) Requirements Based on the above, the NRC staff determines that the proposed exemption meets the eligibility criteria for a categorical exclusion set forth in 10 CFR 51.22(c)(25). Therefore, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(b), no environmental impact statement or environmental assessment need be prepared in connection with the approval of the proposed exemption. IV. Conclusion Accordingly, the Commission has determined that, pursuant to 10 CFR 73.5, the proposed exemption is authorized by law, will not endanger life or property or the common defense and security, and is otherwise in the public interest. Therefore, the Commission hereby grants the licensee’s request for an exemption from the requirements of 10 CFR 73.55(p)(1)(i) and (ii) to allow either a licensed senior operator or a CFH to approve the suspension of security measures in an emergency or during severe weather at Dresden once the certifications required under 10 CFR 50.82(a)(1) have been submitted. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:40 Aug 27, 2021 Jkt 253001 The exemption is effective upon receipt. Dated: August 23, 2021. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Caroline L.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The text of the exemption is attached. Dated: August 25, 2021. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Joel S. Wiebe, Senior Project Manager, Plant Licensing Branch III, Division of Operating Reactor Licensing, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation. Attachment: Exemption NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION Docket Nos. STN 50–454 and STN 50– 455 Exelon Generation Company, LLC; Byron Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2 Exemption Related to the Approval Authority for Suspension of Security Measures in an Emergency or During Severe Weather I. Background Exelon Generation Company, LLC (Exelon) is the holder of Renewed Facility Operating License Nos. NPF–37 and NPF–66 for the Byron Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2 (Byron). The licenses provide, among other things, that the facility is subject to all applicable rules, regulations, and orders of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission), now or hereafter in effect. The Byron facility consists of two pressurized-water reactors located in Ogle County, Illinois. By letter dated September 2, 2020 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML20246G613), Exelon provided formal notification to the NRC pursuant to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Sections 50.82(a)(1)(i) and 50.4(b)(8) of the intention to permanently cease power operations at Byron on or before September 30, 2021. In accordance with 10 CFR 50.82(a)(1)(i)–(ii) and 50.82(a)(2), the 10 PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48451 CFR part 50 licenses for the facility will no longer authorize reactor operation or emplacement or retention of fuel in the reactor vessel after certifications of permanent cessation of operations and permanent removal of fuel from the reactor vessel are docketed for Byron. As a result, licensed senior operators (i.e., individuals licensed under 10 CFR part 55 to manipulate the controls of a facility and to direct the licensed activities of licensed operators) will no longer be required to support plant operating activities. Instead, certified fuel handlers (CFHs) (i.e., non-licensed operators who have qualified in accordance with a fuel handler training program approved by the Commission) will perform activities associated with decommissioning, irradiated fuel handling, and management. Commission approval of a fuel handler training program is needed to facilitate these activities. By letter dated September 24, 2020 (ADAMS Accession No. ML20269A233), Exelon submitted a request for Commission approval of the CFH Training and Retraining Program for Byron. By letter dated August 17, 2021 (ADAMS Accession No. ML21076A371), the Commission approved the CFH Training and Retraining Program for Byron. The CFH Training and Retraining Program is to be used to satisfy training requirements for the plant personnel responsible for supervising and directing the monitoring, storage, handling, and cooling of irradiated fuel in a manner consistent with ensuring the health and safety of the public. As stated in 10 CFR 50.2, ‘‘Definitions,’’ CFHs are qualified in accordance with a Commissionapproved training program. II. Request/Action The Commission’s regulation at 10 CFR 73.55(p)(1) addresses the suspension of security measures in an emergency (10 CFR 73.55(p)(1)(i)) or during severe weather (10 CFR 73.55(p)(1)(ii)) by stating: The licensee may suspend implementation of affected requirements of this section under the following conditions: (i) In accordance with §§ 50.54(x) and 50.54(y) of this chapter, the licensee may suspend any security measures under this section in an emergency when this action is immediately needed to protect the public health and safety and no action consistent with license conditions and technical specifications that can provide adequate or equivalent protection is immediately apparent. This suspension of security measures must be approved as a minimum by a licensed senior operator before taking this action. E:\FR\FM\30AUN1.SGM 30AUN1
