This report supplements the final safety evaluation report (FSER) for the AP1000 standard plant design. The FSER was issued by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) as NUREG-1793 in September 2004 to document the NRC staff's technical review of the AP1000 design. The application for the AP1000 design was submitted on June 28, 2002, by Westinghouse Electric Corporation (Westinghouse) in accordance with Subpart B, "Standard Design Certifications," of Part 52 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR Part 52), and Appendix 0, "Standardization of Design: Staff Review of Standard Designs." This supplement documents the NRC staff's review of Westinghouse's changes to the AP1000 design documentation in the design control document (DCD) since the issuance of the FSER. On the basis of the evaluation described in the AP1000 FSER (NUREG-1793) and this report, the NRC staff concludes that the changes to the DCD (up to and including Revision 15 to the AP1000 DCD) are acceptable and that Westinghouse's application for design certification meets the requirements of Subpart B to 10 CFR Part 52 that are applicable and technically relevant to the AP1000 standard plant design.
