Carolina Power & Light Company; Notice of Withdrawal of 
Application for Amendment to Renewed Facility Operating License

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) has 
granted the request of the Carolina Power & Light Company (the 
licensee) to withdraw its application dated September 29, 2008, as 
supplemented by letters dated January 16, 2009, August 12, 2009, 
January 18, 2010, and August 16, 2010, for a proposed amendment to 
Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF-63 for the Shearon Harris 
Nuclear Power Plant, Unit 1, located in Wake County, North Carolina.
    The proposed amendment would have modified Technical Specification 
(TS) Sections and to incorporate the results of a 
new criticality analysis. Specifically the TSs would be revised to add 
new requirements for the Boiling-Water Reactor (BWR) spent fuel storage 
racks containing Boraflex in Spent Fuel Pools A and B. The requirements 
for the BWR spent fuel racks currently contained in TS would be 
revised to specify applicability to the spent fuel storage racks 
containing Boral in Spent Fuel Pool B.
    The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of 
Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on February 24, 
2009 (74 FR 8283). However, by letter dated September 28, 2010, the 
licensee withdrew the proposed change.
    For further details with respect to this action, see the 
application for amendment dated September 29, 2008 (Agencywide 
Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. 
ML082800410), as supplemented by letters dated January 16, 2009, (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML090230373), August 12, 2009 (ADAMS Accession No. 
ML092310549), January 18, 2010 (ADAMS Accession No. ML100250850), and 
August 16, 2010 (ADAMS Accession No. ML102370768), and the licensee's 
letter dated September 28, 2010, which withdrew the application for 
license amendment.
