The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has granted the request of Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station (the licensee) to withdraw its August 19, 2010, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. DPR-28 for the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station, located in Vernon, Vermont.

The proposed amendment would have revised the Technical Specifications to be consistent with Standard Technical Specifications “Suppression Chamber-to-Drywell Vacuum Breakers” and “Drywell-to-Suppression Chamber Differential Pressure,” along with the associated Bases, of NUREG-1433, Revision 3, “Standard Technical Specifications General Electric Plants, BWR/4,” modified to account for plant specific design details.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on October 5, 2010 (75 FR 61525). However, by letter dated July 7, 2011, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
