NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[NRC-2010-0150]


Notice of Availability of the Models for Plant-Specific Adoption 
of Technical Specifications Task Force Traveler TSTF-514, Revision 3, 
``Revise BWR Operability Requirements and Actions for RCS Leakage 
Instrumentation''

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 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-
514, Revision 3, ``Revise BWR [boiling water reactor] Operability 
Requirements and Actions for RCS [reactor coolant system] Leakage 
Instrumentation.'' TSTF-514, Revision 3, is available in the Agencywide 
Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) under Accession Number 
ML103280389. The proposed changes revise the Standard Technical 
Specifications (STS) to define a new time limit for restoring 
inoperable RCS leakage detection instrumentation to operable status and 
establish alternate methods of monitoring RCS leakage when one or more 
required monitors are inoperable. Changes to the Technical 
Specifications (TS) Bases are included, which reflect the proposed 
changes and more accurately reflect the contents of the facility design 
bases related to the operability of the RCS leakage detection 
instrumentation. The CLIIP model SE will facilitate expedited approval 
of plant-specific adoption of TSTF-514, Revision 3.
    Documents: You can access publicly available documents related to 
this notice using the following methods:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: TSTF-514, Revision 3, is applicable to BWR 
plants. Licensees opting to apply for this TS change are responsible 
for reviewing TSTF-514, Revision 3, and the NRC staff's model SE, 
providing any necessary plant-specific information, and assessing the 
completeness and accuracy of their license amendment request (LAR). It 
is acceptable for licensees to use plant-specific system names, TS 
numbering and titles. The NRC will process each amendment application 
responding to this notice of availability according to applicable NRC 
rules and procedures.
    This CLIIP does not prevent licensees from requesting an alternate 
approach or proposing changes other than those proposed in TSTF-514, 
Revision 3. 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 LAR. Licensees desiring significant 
deviations or additional changes should instead submit an LAR that does 
not claim to adopt TSTF-514, Revision 3.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 7th day of December 2010.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
