Safety RAIs

For all safety-related RAIs and the applicant's related responses, please refer to the eRAI Safety Report. Note that some RAIs and related responses may not be publicly available because they contain sensitive information.

In addition to the RAI responses contained in the eRAI Safety Report mentioned above, PEC has endorsed RAI responses provided by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) for the Bellefonte Units 3 and 4 COL application. The endorsement of the TVA responses is related to RAIs for the portion of the Shearon Harris Units 2 and 3 application that are common to the Bellefonte Units 3 and 4 application. This information is referred to as "standard content." The proposed standard content information is provided in a TVA letter dated October 24, 2008. The endorsement of the Bellefonte standard content RAIs for Shearon Harris Units 2 and 3 COL can be found in a letter dated December 15, 2008.
