Notice of Availability of the Models for Plant-Specific Adoption of Technical Specifications Task Force Traveler TSTF-501, Revision 1, “Relocate Stored Fuel Oil and Lube Oil Volume Values to Licensee Control”
Document Number: 2010-12716
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-05-26
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
As part of the consolidated line item improvement process (CLIIP), the NRC is announcing the availability of the enclosed model application (with model no significant hazards consideration determination) and model safety evaluation (SE) for the plant-specific adoption of Technical Specifications Task Force (TSTF) Traveler TSTF- 501, Revision 1, ``Relocate Stored Fuel Oil and Lube Oil Volume Values to Licensee Control.'' TSTF-501, Revision 1, is available in the Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) under Accession Number ML090510686. The proposed changes would revise Technical Specifications (TS) 3.8.3, ``Diesel Fuel Oil, Lube Oil, and Starting Air,'' by relocating the current stored diesel fuel oil and lube oil numerical volume requirements from the TS to the TS Bases so that it may be modified under licensee control. This CLIIP model SE will facilitate expedited approval of plant-specific adoption of TSTF- 501, Revision 1.

List of Approved Spent Fuel Storage Casks: NUHOMS® HD System Revision 1; Correction
Document Number: 2010-11562
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-05-17
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
This document corrects a notice appearing in the Federal Register on May 7, 2010 (75 FR 25120), that proposes to amend the regulations that govern storage of spent nuclear fuel. Specifically, this proposed amendment would be to the list of approved spent fuel storage casks to add revision 1 to the NUHOMS HD spent fuel storage cask system. This action is necessary to correctly specify the date by which comments must be received, because the notice of direct final rulemaking (75 FR 24786; May 6, 2010), and the companion notice of proposed rulemaking were published in the Federal Register on different dates instead of being published concurrently on the same date, as erroneously stated in the notices.

This document corrects a notice appearing in the Federal Register on May 6, 2010 (75 FR 24786), that amends the regulations that govern storage of spent nuclear fuel. Specifically, this action amends the list of approved spent fuel storage casks to add revision 1 to the NUHOMS HD spent fuel storage cask system. This action is necessary to correctly specify the effective date of the rule if no adverse comments are received, because the notice of direct final rulemaking and the companion notice of proposed rulemaking (75 FR 25120; May 7, 2010) were published in the Federal Register on different dates instead of being published concurrently on the same date, as erroneously stated in the notices.
