On July 13, 2007 (ML071980294), UniStar Nuclear LLC (UniStar) filed with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) pursuant to Section 103 of the Atomic Energy Act and 10 CFR Part 52, a portion of an application for a combined license (COL) for a U.S. EPR nuclear power plant at the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant facility in Lusby, Maryland identified as Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant Unit No. 3. UniStar supplemented its filing with a letter dated July 16, 2007 (ML072000363).
An applicant may seek a COL in accordance with Subpart C of 10 CFR Part 52 and may submit such an application in two parts in accordance with 10 CFR 2.101(a)(5). The part submitted by UniStar on July 13 consists of the Environmental Report required by 10 CFR 50.30(f) as well as other information required under 10 CFR 2.101(a)(5). This information includes certain administrative information such as financial qualifications submitted pursuant to 10 CFR 50.33, Chapter 2, “Site Characteristics,” of the safety analysis report (SAR), which is submitted pursuant to 10 CFR 50.34(a)(1), and an agreement to limit access to sensitive information submitted pursuant to 10 CFR 50.37. To support its application, UniStar also requested an exemption from 10 CFR 2.101(a)(5), as documented in its July 13, 2007 letter. The NRC will review this exemption request and render its decision as part of the acceptance review of the application.
Subsequent Federal Register notices will address the acceptability of this part of the tendered COL application for docketing and provisions for participation of the public in the COL review process.
