ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and solicitation of public comment. SUMMARY: The NRC has recently submitted to OMB for review the following proposal for the collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). The NRC hereby informs potential respondents that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a current valid OMB control number. 1.

The form number if applicable: Not applicable. 4. How often the collection is required: There is a one-time submittal of information to receive a license. Once a specific license has been issued, there is a 10-year resubmittal of the information for renewal of the license. 5. Who will be required or asked to report: All applicants requesting a license of broad scope for byproduct material and all current licensees requesting renewal of a broad scope license. 6. An estimate of the number of responses: All of the information collections in Part 33 are captured under OMB clearance number 3150– 0120 for NRC Form 313. 7. The estimated number of annual respondents: See item 6, above. 8. An estimate of the number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: See item 6 above. 9. An indication of whether Section 3507(d), Public Law 104–13 applies: Not applicable. 10. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 33 contains mandatory requirements for the issuance of a broad scope license authorizing the use of byproduct material. The subparts cover specific requirements for obtaining a license of broad scope. These requirements include equipment, facilities, personnel, and procedures adequate to protect PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 health and minimize danger to life or property.

This series has been developed to describe and make available to the public such information as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. The draft Revision 4 of Regulatory Guide 1.97, entitled ‘‘Criteria for Accident Monitoring Instrumentation for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–1128, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. Like its predecessors, this proposed revision describes a method that the NRC staff considers acceptable for use in complying with the agency’s regulations with respect to satisfying criteria for accident monitoring instrumentation in nuclear power plants. Specifically, the method described in this regulatory guide relates to General Design Criteria 13, 19, and 64, as set forth in Appendix A to Title 10, Part 50, of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR Part 50), ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities.’’ This proposed revision of Regulatory Guide 1.97 represents an ongoing evolution in the nuclear industry’s thinking and approaches with regard to accident monitoring systems for the Nation’s nuclear power plants. Specifically, this revision endorses (with certain clarifying regulatory positions specified in Section C of Draft Regulatory Guide DG–1128) the ‘‘Criteria for Accident Monitoring Instrumentation for Nuclear Power Generating Stations,’’ which the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) promulgated as IEEE Std. 497–2002. This revised regulatory guide is intended for licensees of new nuclear power plants.1 Previous revisions of this regulatory guide remain in effect for 1 The terms ‘‘new nuclear power plant’’ and ‘‘new plant’’ refer to any nuclear power plant for which the licensee obtained an operating license after the NRC issued Revision 4 of Regulatory Guide 1.97. The terms ‘‘current operating reactor’’ and ‘‘current plant’’ refer to any nuclear plant for which the licensee obtained an operating license before the NRC issued Revision 4 of Regulatory Guide 1.97. PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49953 licensees of current operating reactors,1 who are unaffected by this proposed revision. However, licensees of current operating reactors may voluntarily convert their entire accident monitoring program to the criteria in this proposed revision. The NRC staff is soliciting comments on Draft Regulatory Guide DG–1128, and comments may be accompanied by relevant information or supporting data. Please mention DG–1128 in the subject line of your comments. Comments on this draft regulatory guide submitted in writing or in electronic form will be made available to the public in their entirety through the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS). Personal information will not be removed from your comments. You may submit comments by any of the following methods. Mail comments to: Rules and Directives Branch, Office of Administration, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555– 0001. Email comments to: NRCREP@nrc.gov.
