Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection: Comment Request, 1561-1562 [E7-325]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 8 / Friday, January 12, 2007 / Notices 601.2 and 601.3. Section 601.2 requires states to submit copies of their unemployment compensation laws for approval by the Secretary of Labor so that the Secretary may determine the status of state laws. Section 601.3 requires states to ‘‘submit all relevant state materials such as statutes, executive and administrative orders, legal opinions, rules, regulations, interpretations, court decisions, etc.’’ These materials are used by the Secretary to certify to the Secretary of Treasury whether employers in the state qualify for tax credits under Sections 3303 and 3304 of the Federal Unemployment Tax Act, and if the state qualifies for grants for the administration of their unemployment compensation laws by meeting the conditions found in Section 303 of the Social Security Act. If this information is not available, the Secretary cannot make such certifications. To facilitate transmittal of required material, the Department prescribes the use of Form MA 8–7, Transmittal for Unemployment Insurance Materials. This simple check off form is used by the states to identify material being transmitted to the Department of Labor/Employment Training Administration and allows the material to be routed to appropriate staff for prompt action. States could not be certified if this information was not collected and Form MA 8–7 greatly facilitates its receipt. rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES II. Desired Focus of Comments Currently, the Employment and Training Administration is soliciting comments concerning the proposed extension collection of the MA 8–7, Transmittal for Unemployment Insurance Materials. The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments which: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:32 Jan 11, 2007 Jkt 211001 e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.

ACTION: Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information collection request to OMB and solicitation of public comment. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The NRC is preparing a submittal to OMB for review of continued approval of information collections under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). Information Pertaining to the Requirement To Be Submitted 1. The title of the information collection: NRC Forms 540 and 540A, ‘‘Uniform Low-Level Radioactive Waste Manifest (Shipping Paper) and Continuation Page;’’ NRC Forms 541 and 541A, ‘‘Uniform Low-Level Radioactive Waste Manifest, Container and Waste Description, and Continuation Page;’’ NRC Forms 542 and 542A, ‘‘Uniform Low-Level Radioactive Waste Manifest, Index and Regional Compact Tabulation.’’ 2. Current OMB approval numbers: 3150–0164 for NRC Forms 540 and 540A; 3150–0166 for NRC Forms 541 and 541A; and 3150–0165 for NRC Forms 542 and 542A. 3. How often the collection is required: Forms are used by shippers whenever radioactive waste is shipped. Quarterly or less frequent reporting is made to NRC depending on specific license conditions.

Who is required or asked to report: All NRC-licensed low-level waste facilities. All generators, collectors, and processors of low-level waste intended for disposal at a low-level waste facility must complete the appropriate forms. 5. The estimated number of annual respondents: NRC Form 540 and 540A: 2,500 licensees. NRC Form 541 and 541A: 2,500 licensees. NRC Form 542 and 542A: 22 licensees. 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: NRC Form 540 and 540A: 10,050 (.75 hours per response). NRC Form 541 and 541A: 44,341 (3.3 hours per response). NRC Form 542 and 542A: 567 (.75 hours per response). 7. Abstract: NRC Forms 540, 541, and 542, together with their continuation pages, designated by the ‘‘A’’ suffix, provide a set of standardized forms to meet Department of Transportation (DOT), NRC, and State requirements. The forms were developed by NRC at the request of low-level waste industry groups. The forms provide uniformity and efficiency in the collection of information contained in manifests which are required to control transfers of low-level radioactive waste intended for disposal at a land disposal facility. NRC Form 540 contains information needed to satisfy DOT shipping paper requirements in 49 CFR Part 172 and the waste tracking requirements of NRC in 10 CFR Part 20. NRC Form 541 contains information needed by disposal site facilities to safely dispose of low-level waste and information to meet NRC and State requirements regulating these activities. NRC Form 542, completed by waste collectors or processors, contains information which facilitates tracking the identity of the waste generator. That tracking becomes more complicated when the waste forms, dimensions, or packagings are changed by the waste processor. Each container of waste shipped from a waste processor may contain waste from several different generators. The information provided on NRC Form 542 permits the States and Compacts to know the original generators of low-level waste, as authorized by the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1985, so they can ensure that waste is disposed of in the appropriate Compact.

The renewed license would authorize the applicant to PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 operate the HNP, Unit 1, for an additional 20 years beyond the period specified in the current license. HNP, Unit 1, is located in Wake County, North Carolina, and its current operating license expires on October 24, 2026. On November 16, 2006, the Commission’s staff received an application from Carolina Power & Light Company, to renew operating license NPF–63 for HNP, Unit 1, pursuant to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 54. A notice of receipt and availability of the license renewal application (LRA) was published in the Federal Register on December 11, 2006 (71 FR 71586). The Commission’s staff has reviewed the LRA for its acceptability and has determined that Carolina Power & Light Company has submitted sufficient information in accordance with 10 CFR Sections 54.19, 54.21, 54.22, 54.23, and 51.53(c), and that the application is acceptable for docketing. The Commission will retain the current Docket No. 50–400, for operating license NPF–63. The docketing of the renewal application does not preclude requests for additional information as the review proceeds, nor does it predict whether the Commission will grant or deny the license. The license renewal process proceeds along two tracks, one for review of safety issues, pursuant to 10 CFR Part 54 and another for environmental issues, pursuant to 10 CFR Part 51. An applicant must provide NRC with an evaluation of the technical aspects of plant aging and describe the aging management programs and activities that will be relied on to manage aging. In addition, in order to support plant operation for the additional 20 years, the applicant must prepare an evaluation of the potential impact on the environment. The NRC reviews the application, documents its reviews in a safety evaluation report and a supplemental environmental impact statement, and performs verification inspections at the applicant’s facility. If the NRC issues a renewed license, the licensee must continue to comply with all existing regulations, license conditions, orders, and commitments associated with the current operating license as well as those additional activities required as a result of license renewal. The licensee’s activities continue to be subject to NRC oversight during the period of extended operation. Before issuance of the requested renewed license, the NRC will have made the findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s rules E:\FR\FM\12JAN1.SGM 12JAN1
