 BWR/4 STS iii Rev. 3.0, 03/31/04PREFACEThis NUREG contains the improved Standard Technical Specifications (STS) for GeneralElectric (GE) BWR/4 plants. Revision 3 incorporates the cumulative changes to Revision 1 and2, which was published in April 1995 and April 2001, respectively. The changes reflected inRevision 3 resulted from the experience gained from license amendment applications to convertto these improved STS or to adopt partial improvements to existing technical specifications.This publication is the result of extensive public technical meetings and discussions among theNuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff and various nuclear power plant licensees, Nuclear Steam Supply System (NSSS) Owners Groups, and the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI). Theimproved STS were developed based on the criteria in the Final Commission Policy Statementon Technical Specifications Improvements for Nuclear Power Reactors, dated July 22, 1993(58 FR 39132), which was subsequently codified by changes to Section 36 of Part 50 of Title 10of the
Code of Federal Regulations
(10 CFR 50.36) (60 FR 36953). Licensees are encouragedto upgrade their technical specifications consistent with those criteria and conforming, to thepractical extent, to Revision 3 to the improved STS. The Commission continues to place thehighest priority on requests for complete conversions to the improved STS. Licensees adoptingportions of the improved STS to existing technical specifications should adopt all relatedrequirements, as applicable, to achieve a high degree of standardization and consistency.The Table of Contents is now a Table of Contents / Revision Summary where the revisionnumber and date are listed for each specification and bases, in lieu of traditional page numbers.Each limiting condition for operation (LCO) starts with page 1, with a specification, e.g., "2.0" or bases "B 2.0" number prefix. Subsequent approved revisions to sections will be noted in theTable of Contents, as well as on each affected page, using a decimal number to indicate thenumber of revisions to that section, along with the date, e.g., (Rev 3.3, 04/01/04) indicates thethird approved change and date since Revision 3.0 was published. Additionally, the final pageof each LCO section will be a historical listing of the changes affecting that section. Thispublication will be maintained in electronic format. Subsequent revisions will not be printed inhard copy. Users may access the subsequent revisions to the STS in the PDF format at(http://www.nrc.gov/NRR/sts/sts.htm).This Web site will be updated as needed and thecontents may differ from the last printed version. Users may print or download copies from theNRC Web site.PAPERWORK REDUCTION ACT STATEMENTThe information collections contained in this NUREG are covered by the requirements of 10 CFR Parts 20 and 50, which were approved by the Office of Management and Budget,approval numbers 31250-0006, 0011 and 0014.PUBLIC PROTECTION NOTIFICATIONIf a means used to impose an information collection does not display a currently valid OMBcontrol number, the NRC may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respondto, the information collection.
