The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Carolina Power & Light Company, et al. (the licensee) to withdraw a portion of its August 28, 2002, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-63 for the Shearon Harris Nuclear Power Plant, Unit 1, located in Wake and Chatham Counties, North Carolina.
The withdrawn portion of the proposed amendment would have revised Technical Specification 188.8.131.52.2 by including Topical Report EMF-2310(P)(A), “SRP [Standard Review Plan] Chapter 15 Non-LOCA [loss-of-coolant accident] Methodology for Pressurized-Water Reactors,” as a reference methodology used to determine core operating limits at Shearon Harris Nuclear Power Plant, Unit 1.
The other portion of the amendment application, which requested approval of topical report EMF-2328(P)(A), “PWR [pressurized-water reactor] Small-Break LOCA Evaluation Model, S-RELAP5-Based,” as a reference in the TS, was approved and issued as Amendment No. 114 on March 28, 2003 (68 FR 18291, April 15, 2003).
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on October 15, 2002 (67 FR 63691). However, by letter dated August 28, 2003, the licensee withdrew the portion of the proposed change described above.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated August 28, 2002, and the licensee's letter dated August 28, 2003, which withdrew this portion of the application for license amendment.
