SUBJECT:

PLANT-SPECIFIC SAFETY EVALUATION REPORT FOR USl A-46 PROGRAM i

IMPLEMENTATION AT CALVERT CLIFFS NUCLEAR POWER PLANT, UNIT NOS.1 AND 2 (TAC NOS. M69435 AND M69436) l

Dear Mr. Cruse:

1 Enclosed is the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff's safety evaluation (SE) of the licensee's (Baltimore Gas and Electric Company's) USl A-46 implementation program at l

Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, Unit Nos.1 and 2 (CCNPP). j i

The licensee's USl A-46 program at CCNPP was established in response to Generic Letter 87-2 l l through a 10 CFR 50.54(f) letter. The staff concludes that the licensee's A-46 implementation

program has, in general, met the purpose and intent of the criteria in GIP-2 and the staff's l

SSER No. 2 for the resolution of USl A-46. The staff has determined that the licensee's corrective actions and completed physical modifications for the resolution of outliers will result in safety enhancements that are beyond the originallicensing basis in certain respects.

l Accordingly, these actions and modifications provide sufficient basis to close the USl A-46 l review at the facility. The staff also concludes that the licensee's implementation program to resolve USl A-46 at the facility has adequately addressed the purpose of the 10 CFR 50.54(f) request. Please be advised that licensee activities related to the USI A-46 implementation are subject to NRC inspection.

l Sincerely, Original signed by:
