Document Number: 2018-12652
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-06-13
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing an exemption from regulatory requirements in response to an August 1, 2017, request from Exelon Generation Company, LLC (Exelon or the licensee). The exemption allows a certified fuel handler (CFH), besides a licensed senior operator, to approve the emergency suspension of security measures for Three Mile Island Nuclear Station (TMI), Units 1 and 2, during certain emergency conditions or during severe weather. Although the exemption is effective upon receipt, the actions permitted by the exemption may not be implemented until both the ``Certification of Permanent Cessation of Operations'' and the ``Certification of Permanent Fuel Removal'' have been submitted. While Exelon submitted a Certification of Permanent Cessation of Operations for TMI, Unit 1, the Certification of Permanent Fuel Removal has not yet been submitted. Since the TMI, Unit 2, license had already been modified to allow possession but not operation before the effective date of the rule requiring these certifications; the certifications have been deemed submitted.
