AGENCY: Notice of opportunity for public comment. ACTION: SUMMARY: On November 7, 2005, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published for public comment a proposed rule in the Federal Register (70 FR 67598) on Risk-Informed Changes to Loss-of-Coolant Accident Technical Requirements. Under the proposed § 50.46a rule, nuclear power plant licensees would be allowed to implement a voluntary, risk-informed alternative to the current requirements for analyzing the performance of emergency core cooling systems (ECCS) during loss-of-coolant accidents (LOCAs). In addition, the proposed rule would establish procedures and criteria for requesting changes in plant design and procedures based upon the results of the new analyses of ECCS performance during LOCAs. In the Federal Register notice associated with the publication of the proposed alternative § 50.46a rule, the Commission noted that the potential for seismically-induced pipe breaks was not considered in determining the area of the transition break sizes 1 (TBSs). The Commission stated that work was ongoing to investigate the possible effect of seismically-induced pipe breaks on the TBS selections and committed to put a report on the NRC Web site to facilitate public comment on the technical aspects of the issue. The NRC staff has completed its report and has posted it on the Rulemaking Forum Web site, http://ruleforum.llnl.gov. Comment period expires on February 6, 2006. Comments received after this date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but assurance of consideration cannot be given to comments received after this date.

Form 10–SB is used to register classes of securities of small business issuers pursuant to Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to provide material information necessary for informed investment decisions.

The information provided on Form 10–SB is mandatory and is available to the public upon request.

It is estimated that 25% of the 33,782 annual burden hours (8,446 burden hours) would be prepared by the company.

Section 306(a)(6) of the Act requires an issuer to provide timely notice to its directors and executive officers and to the Commission of the imposition of a blackout period that would trigger the statutory trading prohibition of Section 306(a)(1). The information provided under Regulation BTR is mandatory and is available to the public. Approximately 1,230 issuers file Regulation BTR notices annually. We estimate that it takes 2 hours per response for an issuer to draft a notice to directors and executive officers for a total annual burden of 2,460 hours.

SUMMARY: On November 7, 2005, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) 
published for public comment a proposed rule in the Federal Register 
(70 FR 67598) on Risk-Informed Changes to Loss-of-Coolant Accident 
Technical Requirements. Under the proposed Sec.  50.46a rule, nuclear 
power plant licensees would be allowed to implement a voluntary, risk-
informed alternative to the current requirements for analyzing the 
performance of emergency core cooling systems (ECCS) during loss-of-
coolant accidents (LOCAs). In addition, the proposed rule would 
establish procedures and criteria for requesting changes in plant 
design and procedures based upon the results of the new analyses of 
ECCS performance during LOCAs. In the Federal Register notice 
associated with the publication of the proposed alternative Sec.  
50.46a rule, the Commission noted that the potential for seismically-
induced pipe breaks was not considered in determining the area of the 
transition break sizes \1\ (TBSs). The Commission stated that work was 
ongoing to investigate the possible effect of seismically-induced pipe 
breaks on the TBS selections and committed to put a report on the NRC 
Web site to facilitate public comment on the technical aspects of the 
issue. The NRC staff has completed its report and has posted it on the
