Subject:  Deletion of Standard Technical Specification Surveillance 
          Requirement 4.8.1.1.2.d.6 for Diesel Generator Testing 
          (Generic Letter No. 83-30) 

It has come to our attention that diesel generator Surveillance Requirement 
4.8.1.1.2.d.6 in the Standard Technical Specifications (STS) should be 
deleted.  The current revision of the STS for all power reactors is not 
consistent with the provisions of GDC 17, Regulatory Guide 1.108 and the NRC
Standard Review Plans (SRPs 8.2 and 8.3.1).  In order to rectify this 
inconsistency, the Surveillance Requirements for diesel generator testing 
have been modified to delete a requirement which is in excess of the scope 
of GDC 17. 

We have enclosed the revised Surveillance Requirements for diesel generator 
testing that are to be used in your submittal of proposed Technical 
Specifications, or, if your proposed Technical Specifications have already 
been submitted, the staff will make the necessary revisions.  If you already
hold a operating license which includes this Surveillance Requirement, you 
may propose an amendment to your Technical Specifications in accordance with 
the enclosed revised Surveillance Requirements.  These changes will be 
incorporated in the next revision of the STS for all power reactors.  The 
generic changes are indicated by a line in the margin of the Surveillance 
Requirements. 

This request has been approved by OMB Clearance Number 3150-0011 which 
expires April 30, 1985. 


                               Darrell G. Eisenhut, Director 
                               Division of Licensing 

Enclosure:
"Revised Surveillance Requirements for Diesel Generator Testing"
