Licensee Notification of Completion of ITAAC

    On January 17, 2014, South Carolina Electric and Gas, Inc. (the 
licensee) submitted an ITAAC closure notification (ICN) under Sec.  
52.99(c)(1) of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 
informing the NRC that the licensee has successfully performed the 
required inspections, tests, and analyses for ITAAC, and that 
the specified acceptance criteria are met for Virgil C. Summer Nuclear 
Station Unit 2 (ADAMS Accession No. ML14023A676). This ITAAC was 
approved as part of the issuance of the combined license, NPF-93, for 
this facility.

NRC Staff Determination of Completion of ITAAC

    The NRC staff has determined that the inspections, tests, and 
analyses have been successfully completed, and that the specified 
acceptance criteria are met for Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station Unit 
2, ITAAC This notice fulfills the staff's obligations under 
10 CFR 52.99(e)(1) to publish a notice in the Federal Register of the 
NRC staff's determination of the successful completion of inspections, 
tests and analyses.
    The documentation of the NRC staff's determination is in the ITAAC 
Closure Verification Evaluation Form (VEF), dated January 31, 2014 
(ADAMS Accession No. ML14028A247). The VEF is a form that represents 
the NRC staff's structured process for reviewing ICNs. The ICN presents 
a narrative description of how the ITAAC was completed, and the NRC's 
ICN review process involves a determination on whether, among other 
things, (1) the ICN provides sufficient information, including a 
summary of the methodology used to perform the ITAAC, to demonstrate 
that the inspections, tests, and analyses have been successfully 
completed; (2) the ICN provides sufficient information to demonstrate 
that the acceptance criteria are met; and (3) any inspections for the 
ITAAC have been completed and any ITAAC findings associated with the 
ITAAC have been closed.
    The NRC staff's determination of the successful completion of this 
ITAAC is based on information available at this time and is subject to 
the licensee's ability to maintain the condition that the acceptance 
criteria are met. If new information disputes the NRC staff's 
determination, this ITAAC will be reopened as necessary. The NRC 
staff's determination will be used to support a subsequent finding, 
pursuant to 10 CFR 52.103(g), at the end of construction that all 
acceptance criteria in the combined license are met. The ITAAC closure 
process is not finalized for this ITAAC until the NRC makes an 
affirmative finding under 10 CFR 52.103(g). Any future updates to the 
status of this ITAAC will be reflected on the NRC's Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/oversight/itaac.html.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 11th day of March 2014.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Senior Project Manager, Division of New Reactor Licensing, Office of 
New Reactors.
