The amendment converts the current TSs for ANO-1 to a set of improved TSs based on NUREG-1430, “Standard Technical Specifications, Babcock and Wilcox Plants.”
The application for the amendment complies with the standards and 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.
