Improved Identification Techniques Against Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR) Concrete Degradation at Nuclear Power Plants
Document Number: 2019-25489
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-11-26
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is denying a petition for rulemaking (PRM), PRM-50-109, dated September 25, 2014, submitted by the C-10 Research and Education Foundation (C-10 or the petitioner).

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued an order imposing a civil monetary penalty (Order) to Team Industrial Services, Inc., (licensee) on September 20, 2019. The purpose of the Order was to document the NRC's review of the licensee's response to the Notice of Violation and Proposed Imposition of Civil Penalty, issued on March 8, 2019. The licensee's response did not dispute the violation but did dispute both the deliberateness associated with the violation and the significance of the violation. The licensee also requested that the NRC not impose a civil penalty. After consideration of the response, the NRC concluded that the significance determination was appropriate and that an adequate basis to mitigate the proposed civil penalty amount was not provided.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) received and is considering approval of an indirect license transfer application filed by the El Paso Electric Company (EPE) on August 13, 2019. The application seeks NRC approval of the indirect transfer of possession- only non-operating interests in Renewed Facility Operating License Nos. NPF-41, NPF-51, and NPF-74 for Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station (Palo Verde), Units 1, 2, and 3, respectively, and the general license for the Palo Verde Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) from EPE to IIF US Holding 2 LP. EPE currently owns a 15.8 percent tenant-in-common interest in and holds possession-only rights in the NRC licenses. The proposed indirect license transfer would result from IIF US Holding 2 LP acquiring 100 percent of the shares in EPE.
