The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission or NRC) has granted the request of Southern California Edison (SCE, the licensee) to withdraw its January 14, 2010, application for proposed amendments to Facility Operating License Nos. NPF-10 and NPF-15 for the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), Units 2 and 3, respectively, located in San Diego County, California.
The proposed amendments would have revised a number of Technical Specification (TS) requirements, to impose similar restrictions on the movement of non-irradiated fuel assemblies to those currently in place for movement of irradiated fuel assemblies. The additional restrictions would limit the movement of all fuel assemblies over irradiated fuel assemblies in containment or in the fuel storage pool.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on May 18, 2010 (75 FR 27832). However, by letter dated January 27, 2011, the licensee withdrew the proposed changes.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated January 14, 2010, and the licensee's letter dated January 27, 2011, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
