The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission or NRC) has granted the request of STP Nuclear Operating Company (the licensee) to withdraw its application dated November 22, 2010, for a proposed amendment to Facility Operating License Nos. NPF-76 and NPF-80 for the South Texas Project (STP), Units 1 and 2, located in Matagorda County, Texas.

The proposed amendment would have revised the application of Risk-Managed Technical Specifications to Technical Specification 3.7.7, “Control Room Makeup and Cleanup Filtration System.” The purpose of the change was to correct a misapplication of the Configuration Risk Management Program that is currently allowed by the Technical Specifications.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on April 5, 2011 (76 FR 18803). However, by letter dated July 11, 2011, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated November 22, 2010, and the licensee's letter dated July 11, 2011, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
