NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[NRC-2010-0186]


Notice of Availability of the Models for Plant-Specific Adoption 
of Technical Specifications Task Force Traveler TSTF-501, Revision 1, 
``Relocate Stored Fuel Oil and Lube Oil Volume Values to Licensee 
Control''

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

ACTION: Notice of availability.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: As part of the consolidated line item improvement process 
(CLIIP), the NRC is announcing the availability of the enclosed model 
application (with model no significant hazards consideration 
determination) and model safety evaluation (SE) for the plant-specific 
adoption of Technical Specifications Task Force (TSTF) Traveler TSTF-
501, Revision 1, ``Relocate Stored Fuel Oil and Lube Oil Volume Values 
to Licensee Control.'' TSTF-501, Revision 1, is available in the 
Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) under 
Accession Number ML090510686. The proposed changes would revise 
Technical Specifications (TS) 3.8.3, ``Diesel Fuel Oil, Lube Oil, and 
Starting Air,'' by relocating the current stored diesel fuel oil and 
lube oil numerical volume requirements from the TS to the TS Bases so 
that it may be modified under licensee control. This CLIIP model SE 
will facilitate expedited approval of plant-specific adoption of TSTF-
501, Revision 1.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Barry W. Miller, Senior Project 
Manager, Licensing Processes Branch, Mail Stop: O-12 D1, Division of 
Policy and Rulemaking, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation, U.S.

301-415-4117 or e-mail at Barry.Miller@nrc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: TSTF-501, Revision 1, is applicable to all 
nuclear power reactors. Licensees opting to apply for this TS change 
are responsible for reviewing the NRC staff's model SE, referencing the 
applicable technical justifications, and providing any necessary plant-
specific information. The NRC will process each amendment application 
responding to this notice of availability according to applicable NRC 
rules and procedures.
    The model does not prevent licensees from requesting an alternate 
approach or proposing changes other than those proposed in TSTF-501, 
Revision 1. However, significant deviations from the approach 
recommended in this notice or the inclusion of additional changes to 
the license require additional NRC staff review and would not be 
reviewed as a part of the CLIIP. This may increase the time and 
resources needed for the review or result in NRC staff rejection of the 
license amendment request (LAR). Licensees desiring significant 
deviations or additional changes should instead submit an LAR that does 
not claim to adopt TSTF-501, Revision 1.
    The NRC staff requests that each licensee applying for the changes 
proposed in TSTF-501, Revision 1, include their current licensing basis 
for fuel and lube oil storage requirements in their LAR.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 14th day of May 2010.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Michael D. McCoppin,
Acting Chief, Licensing Processes Branch, Division of Policy and 
Rulemaking, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.
