Start Preamble

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company (the licensee) to withdraw its August 25, 2003, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-3; for the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station, Unit No. 1, located in Ottawa County, Ohio.

The proposed amendment would have revised the Technical Specifications (TSs) pertaining to the Steam and Feedwater Rupture Control System (SFRCS) instrumentation setpoints and surveillance intervals. Start Printed Page 49953Specifically, the proposed amendment would have clearly identified the appropriate actions to be taken if an SFRCS instrumentation channel's output logic becomes inoperable; relocated the SFRCS instrumentation trip setpoints from the TSs to the Updated Safety Analysis Report; and decreased the SFRCS instrument channel functional test frequency from monthly to quarterly and made associated changes to the trip setpoint allowable values.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on September 30, 2003 (68 FR 56343). However, by letter dated August 9, 2005, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
