Download as PDF 35308 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 116 / Friday, June 17, 2005 / Notices 1. The Title of the Information Collection: Voluntary Reporting of Performance Indicators. 2. Current OMB Approval Number: 3150–0195. 3. How Often the Collection Is Required: Quarterly. 4. Who Is Required or Asked To Report: Power reactor licensees. 5. The Number of Annual Respondents: 104 reactors. 6. The Number of Hours Needed Annually To Complete the Requirement or Request: 84,520 (83,200 hours for reporting plus 1,320 recordkeeping hours for 33 recordkeepers). 7. Abstract: As part of a joint industryNRC initiative, the NRC receives information submitted voluntarily by power reactor licensees regarding selected performance attributes known as performance indicators (PIs). PIs are objective measures of the performance of licensee systems or programs. The NRC’s reactor oversight process uses PI information, along with the results of audits and inspections, as the basis for NRC conclusions regarding plant performance and necessary regulatory response. Licensees transmit PIs electronically to reduce burden on themselves and the NRC. Submit, by August 16, 2005, comments that address the following questions: 1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical utility? 2. Is the burden estimate accurate? 3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected? 4. How can the burden of the information collection be minimized, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology? A copy of the draft supporting statement may be viewed free of charge at the NRC Public Document Room, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Room O–1 F21, Rockville, MD 20852. OMB clearance requests are available at the NRC worldwide Web site: http://www.nrc.gov/public-involve/ doc-comment/omb/index.html. The document will be available on the NRC home page site for 60 days after the signature date of this notice. Comments and questions about the information collection requirements may be directed to the NRC Clearance Officer, Brenda Jo.
