Notice of Withdrawal of Application for Amendment to Facility 
Operating License; Dominion Nuclear Connecticut, Inc., Millstone Power 
Station, Unit 3

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has 
granted the request of Dominion Nuclear Connecticut, Inc. (DNC or the 
licensee) to withdraw its July 5, 2011, application for proposed 
amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-49 for the Millstone 
Power Station, Unit 3 (MPS3), located in town of Waterford, 
    The proposed amendment would relocate certain Technical 
Specification (TS) surveillance frequencies to a licensee-controlled 
program by adopting Technical Specification Task Force (TSTF)-425, 
Revision 3, ``Relocate Surveillance Frequencies of Licensee Control--
Risk-Informed Technical Specification Task Force Initiative 5b.'' The 
proposed change would also add a new program, the Surveillance 
Frequency Control Program, to the TSs, in accordance with TSTF-425. The 
Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance 
of Amendment published in the Federal Register on November 15, 2011 (76 
FR 70771). However, by letter dated May 8, 2012, the licensee withdrew 
the proposed change.
    For further details with respect to this action, see the 
application for amendment dated July 5, 2011, as supplemented by letter 
dated September 12, 2011, and the licensee's letter dated May 8, 2012, 
which withdrew the application for license amendment. Documents may be
