SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the staff of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has prepared a model application relating to the modification of requirements regarding the impact of inoperable snubbers not in technical specifications, on supported systems in technical specifications (TS). The purpose of this model is to permit the NRC to efficiently process amendments that propose to modify requirements by adding to the TS a limiting condition for operation (LCO) 3.0.8 that provides a delay time for entering a supported system TS when the inoperability is due solely to an inoperable snubber, if risk is assessed and managed, as generically approved by this notice. Licensees of nuclear power reactors to which the model applies could request amendments utilizing the model application. DATES: The NRC staff issued a Federal Register Notice (69 FR 68412, November 24, 2004) which provided a Model Safety Evaluation (SE) relating to modification of requirements regarding the addition 1 to the TS of LCO 3.0.8 on the impact of inoperable snubbers; similarly the NRC staff herein provides a Model Application, including a revised Model Safety Evaluation. The NRC staff can most efficiently consider applications based upon the Model Application, which references the Model Safety Evaluation, if the application is submitted within one year o
