Reference Documents

In accordance with Title 10, Part 52, of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR Part 52), "Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants," a COL application may reference a standard design certification, an early site permit, both, or neither. Many COL applications have referenced an application for design certification, in accordance with 10 CFR 52.55(c). On that basis, the application referenced Westinghouse's application to amend the AP1000 standard design certification and cited the following amended design control document (DCD) in its COL original application for Levy Nuclear Plant, Units 1 & 2:

In Revision 1 to the Levy Nuclear Plant, Units 1 & 2 COL application dated October 2, 2009, Progress Energy Florida updated the application to reflect that its application now incorporates by reference AP1000 DCD Revision 17.

In Revision 3 to the Levy Nuclear Plant, Units 1 & 2 COL application dated October 4, 2011, Progress Energy Florida updated the application to reflect that its application now incorporates by reference AP1000 DCD Revision 19. All subsequent revisions to the COL application also incorporate by reference AP1000 DCD Revision 19.

Some combined license applications were submitted with hyperlinks to various reference documents. Currently, the hyperlinks in those applications are not active. These hyperlinks represent an advanced feature that could be activated when the agency upgrades to web-based ADAMS, at which point these applications and documents such as the Final Safety Analysis Report and associated Technical/Topical Reports would be linked together. In the interim, and for those applications that do not have the hyperlink feature, the reference documents may be viewed under the Reference Documents section of the combined license application page. In addition, DVDs of the various documents are available by contacting the Public Document Room staff.
