The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has issued Amendment No. 12 to Materials License SNM-2502 held by Carolina Power & Light Company (CP&L) for the receipt, possession, transfer, and storage of spent fuel at the H. B. Robinson Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI), located on the H. B. Robinson Steam Electric Plant Unit 2 site, Darlington County, South Carolina. The amendment is effective as of the date of issuance.
By application dated August 28, 2000, CP&L requested an amendment to Materials License SNM-2502 for the H.B. Robinson ISFSI. CP&L is seeking Commission approval to amend the materials license safeguards license condition and the Technical Specifications to reflect that the Industrial Security Plan and Safeguards Contingency Plan are combined into the Physical Security and Safeguards Contingency Plan. The revision would also clarify the text to indicate that the Training and Qualification Plan no longer contains safeguards information. Such an action would only change the reference to and the location of the Industrial Security Plan and the Safeguards Contingency Plan. The requested change does not affect the design, operation, maintenance, or surveillance of the ISFSI.
This amendment complies with the requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission's rules and regulations. The Commission has made appropriate findings as required by the Act and the Commission's rules and regulations in 10 CFR Chapter I, which are set forth in the license amendment.
In accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(2), a determination has been made that the amendment does not present a genuine issue as to whether public health and safety will be significantly affected. Therefore, the publication of a notice of proposed action and an opportunity for hearing or a notice of hearing is not warranted. Notice is hereby given of the right of interested persons to request a hearing on whether the action should be rescinded or modified.
The Commission has determined that the issuance of the amendment meets the criteria for a categorical exclusion set forth in 10 CFR 51.22(c)(10) of the regulations. Therefore, an environmental assessment need not be prepared in connection with issuance of the amendment.
Documents related to this action are available for public inspection at the Commission's Public Document Room located at the One White Flint Building, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland, or from the publicly available records component of NRC's document system (ADAMS). ADAMS is accessible from the NRC Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/NRC/ADAMS/index.html (the Public Electronic Reading Room).Start Signature
