The amendment revises the UFSAR by making changes to the Non-Class 1E dc and Uninterruptible Power Supply System (EDS) and Class 1E dc and Uninterruptible Power Supply System (IDS) and making changes to the corresponding Tier 1 information in Appendix C to the Combined Licenses. The granting of the exemption allows the changes to Tier 1 information asked for in the amendment. Because the acceptability of the exemption was determined in part by the acceptability of the amendment, the exemption and amendment are being issued concurrently.
