[Docket No. 50-346]

Firstenergy Nuclear Operating Company; Davis-Besse Nuclear Power 
Station, Unit 1; 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 May 3, 2004, application for proposed amendment to 
Facility Operating License No. NPF-3; for the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power 
Station (DBNPS), Unit 1, located in Ottawa County, Ohio.
    The proposed amendment would have changed the facility as described 
in the DBNPS Updated Safety Analysis Report to modify the design 
requirements for the emergency diesel generators (EDGs). Specifically, 
the proposed amendment would have allowed a departure from the 
regulatory position of Safety Guide 9, ``Selection of Diesel Generator 
Set Capacity for Standby Power Supplies,'' for the frequency and 
voltage transient during the EDG automatic loading sequence.
    The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of 
Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on May 25, 2004 
(69 FR 29767). However, by letter dated August 29, 2005, the licensee 
withdrew the proposed change.
    For further details with respect to this action, see the 
application for amendment dated May 3, 2004 (Agencywide Documents 
Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML041260319), as 
supplemented by letter dated April 28, 2005 (ADAMS Accession No. 
ML051220367), and the licensee's letter dated August 29, 2005 (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML052440346), which withdrew the application for license 
amendment. Documents may be examined, and/or copied for a fee, at the 
NRC's Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North,
