Download as PDF 57334 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 189 / Friday, September 30, 2005 / Notices comments for NRC staff consideration of the revised license renewal guidance documents. The public comment period closed on March 31, 2005, without the submission of any stakeholder comments. However, in response to the exceptions stated in DG–1140, NEI issued Revision 6 of NEI– 95–10 in June 2005 4 to accept the NRC staff’s position with respect to those issues, thereby rendering the staff’s two exceptions unnecessary. Having reviewed this latest revision of NEI 95– 10, the NRC staff finds Revision 6 acceptable for use in implementing the license renewal rule, without exceptions, as discussed in Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 1.188. Applicants may meet the intent of the license renewal rule using methods other than those provided in Revision 6 of NEI 95– 10; however, the NRC staff will determine the acceptability of such methods on a case-by-case basis. The NRC staff encourages and welcomes comments and suggestions in connection with improvements to published regulatory guides, as well as items for inclusion in regulatory guides that are currently being developed. 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.

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the RRB’s estimate of the burden of the collection PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57335 of the information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden related to the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Title and purpose of information collection: RRB Form DC–1, Employer’s Quarterly Report of Contributions Under the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act; OMB 3220–0012. Under Section 8 of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA), as amended by the Railroad Unemployment Improvement Act of 1988 (Public Law 100–647), the amount of each employer’s contribution is determined by the RRB, primarily on the basis of RUIA benefit payments made to the employees of that employer. These experienced based contributions, take into account the frequency, volume and duration of RUIA benefits, both unemployment and sickness, attributable to a railroad’s employees. Each employer’s contribution rate includes a component for administrative expenses and a component to cover costs shared by all employers. The regulations prescribing the manner and conditions for remitting the contributions and for adjusting overpayments or underpayments of contributions are contained in 20 CFR 345. RRB Form DC–1, Employer’s Quarterly Report of Contributions Under the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act, is currently utilized by the RRB for the reporting and remitting of quarterly contributions by railroad employers. The RRB utilizes a manual version of Form DC–1 and also provides railroad employers with the option of reporting the required information and remitting their quarterly contributions via an Internet equivalent version Form DC–1. The RRB estimates that 2,160 responses are received annually. One response is requested quarterly of each respondent. Completion is mandatory. The RRB proposes no changes to Form DC–1. The estimated completion for the manual and Internet version of Form DC–1 is estimated at 25 minutes. Additional Information or Comments: To request more information or to obtain a copy of the information collection justification, forms, and/or supporting material, please call the RRB Clearance Officer at (312) 751–3363 or send an e-mail request to Charles.Mierzwa@RRB.GOV.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Standard Review Plan for Review of LR Applications for Nuclear Power 
Plants, Rev. 1

    The NRC staff revised the July 2001 version of NUREG-1800, 
``Standard Review Plan for Review of License Renewal Applications for 
Nuclear Power Plants'' (SRP-LR). The SRP-LR provides guidance to NRC 
staff reviewers in performing safety reviews of applications to renew 
licenses of nuclear power plants in accordance with the license renewal 
rule. The SRP-LR, Revision 1, is under ADAMS Accession number 
ML052110007. The SRP-LR is revised to incorporate lessons learned from 
the review of a number of previous license renewal applications, as 
well as to make changes corresponding to the update of the GALL Report. 
The SRP-LR, Revision 1, contains four major chapters: (1) 
Administrative Information; (2) Scoping and Screening Methodology for 
Identifying Structures and Components Subject to Aging Management 
Review, and Implementation Results; (3) Aging Management Review 
Results; and (4) Time-Limited Aging Analyses. In addition, three Branch 
Technical Positions are in an Appendix to the SRP-LR, Revision 1.

Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL) Report, Revision 1

    The Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL) Report, Revision 1, is an 
update to the July 2001 version; the report format is largely 
unchanged. The GALL Report, Revision 1, Volumes 1 and 2, are available 
under ADAMS Accession number ML052110005 and ML052110006, respectively. 
The adequacy of the generic aging management programs in managing 
certain aging effects for particular structures and components will 
continue to be evaluated based on the review of the following ten 
program elements: (1) Scope of program; (2) preventive actions; (3) 
parameters monitored or inspected; (4) detection of aging effects; (5) 
monitoring and trending; (6) acceptance criteria; (7) corrective 
actions; (8) confirmation process; (9) administrative controls; and 
(10) operating experience. The GALL Report is a technical basis 
document for the SRP-LR and should be treated in the same manner as an 
approved topical report that is applicable generically.
