SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

TSTF-422, Revision 2, is applicable to all CE PWR plants. 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 NOA according to applicable NRC rules and procedures.

The proposed models do not prevent licensees from requesting an alternate approach or proposing changes other than those proposed in TSTF-422, Revision 2. However, significant deviations from the approach recommended in this notice or the inclusion of additional changes to the license require additional NRC staff review. 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-422, Revision 2.

Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 22nd day of March, 2011.

For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
