Notice of Opportunity To Comment on Model Safety Evaluation on Technical Specification Improvement To Revise MTC Surveillance for Startup Test Activity Reduction (STAR) Program (WCAP-16011)
Notice is hereby given that the staff of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has prepared a model safety evaluation (SE) relating to the modification of technical specification (TS) moderator temperature coefficient (MTC) surveillance requirements (SR) associated with implementation of WCAP-16011-P-A, ``Startup Test Activity Reduction (STAR) Program.'' The NRC staff has also prepared a model license amendment request and a model no significant hazards consideration (NSHC) determination relating to this matter. The purpose of these models are to permit the NRC to efficiently process amendments that propose to modify TS MTC surveillance requirements for implementing the STAR Program. Licensees of nuclear power reactors to which the models apply could then request amendments, confirming the applicability of the SE and NSHC determination to their reactors. The NRC staff is requesting comment on the model SE and model NSHC determination prior to announcing their availability for referencing in license amendment applications.
