The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued Generic Letter (GL) 2006-01 to all holders of operating licenses for pressurized water reactors, except those who have permanently ceased operation and have certified that fuel has been removed from the reactor vessel. A response to this GL is not needed for the following units since they have revised their technical specifications (TS) to be conceptually similar to the TS discussed in this GL: Arkansas Nuclear One Unit 1, Callaway, Catawba Units 1 and 2, Farley Units 1 and 2, Salem Unit 1, and South Texas Project Units 1 and 2. The NRC is issuing this generic letter to:

1. Request that addressees either submit a description of their program for ensuring steam generator (SG) tube Start Printed Page 6106integrity for the interval between inspections or adopt alternative TS requirements for ensuring SG tube integrity, and

2. Require addressees to provide a written response to the NRC in accordance with Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 50.54(f).

This Federal Register notice is available through the NRC's Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) under accession number ML060240020.
