The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted a request by the Detroit Edison Company (the licensee) to withdraw its May 23, 2003, application for an amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-43 issued to the licensee for operation of the Fermi 2, located in Monroe County. Notice of Consideration of Issuance of this amendment was published in the Federal Register on June 25, 2002 (67 FR 42819).
The purpose of the licensee's amendment request was to modify the Fermi 2 Technical Specifications by revising the requirements for system operability during movement of recently irradiated fuel assemblies in the secondary containment.
Subsequently, the licensee informed the staff that the amendment is no longer required. Thus, the amendment application is considered to be withdrawn by the licensee.
For further details with respect to this action, see (1) the application for amendment dated May 23, 2002, and (2) the staff's letters dated May 14, 2003, and June 3, 2003. Documents may be examined, and/or copied for a fee, at the NRC's Public Document Room PDR), located at One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland.
