Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station; Notice of Withdrawal of 
Application for Amendment to Facility Operating License

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted 
the request of FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company (the licensee) to 
withdraw its December 17, 2001, as supplemented by letter dated June 4, 
2002, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License 
No. NPF-3 for the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station, Unit No. 1, 
located in Ottawa County, Ohio.
    The proposed amendment would have modified the facility technical 
specifications (TS) pertaining to TS 3/4.3.1, ``Reactor Protection 
System (RPS) Instrumentation,'' to delete an Action involving either 
reducing core thermal power and the high neutron flux reactor trip 
setpoint, or monitoring quadrant power tilt when an RPS channel is 
inoperable. Additionally, changes were

proposed to the content and format of TS Tables 3.3-1 and 4.3-1 to 
enhance TS clarity.

Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on November 25, 
2003 (68 FR 66136). However, by letter dated November 26, 2003, the 
licensee withdrew the amendment request.
