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?

On PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25789 August 8, 2005, the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct) was enacted. Section 652 of the EPAct, amended Section 149 of the AEA to require fingerprinting and a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) identification and criminal history records check of any individual who is permitted unescorted access to radioactive material or other property subject to regulation by the Commission, and which the Commission determines to be of such significance to the public health and safety or the common defense and security as to warrant fingerprinting and background checks. Though a rulemaking to implement the fingerprinting provisions of the EPAct is currently underway, the NRC has decided to implement this particular requirement by Order, in part, prior to the completion of the rulemaking because a deliberate malevolent act by an individual with unescorted access to radioactive material or other property has a potential to result in significant adverse impacts to the public health and safety or the common defense and security. Those exempted from fingerprinting requirements under 10 CFR 73.61 [72 FR 4945 (February 2, 2007)] are also exempt from the fingerprinting requirements under this Order. In addition, individuals who have had a favorably-decided U.S. Government criminal history records check within the last five (5) years, or individuals who have an active federal security clearance (provided in either case that they make available the appropriate documentation), have satisfied the EPAct fingerprinting requirement and need not be fingerprinted again. Also, individuals who have been fingerprinted and granted access to SGI by the reviewing official under the previous fingerprinting order, ‘‘Order Imposing Fingerprinting and Criminal History Check Requirements for Access to Safeguards Information,’’ do not need to be fingerprinted again. Subsequent to the terrorist events of September 11, 2001, the NRC issued security Orders requiring certain entities to implement Additional Security Measures (ASMs) or Interim Compensatory Measures (ICMs) for certain radioactive material. The requirements imposed by these Orders and the measures licensees have developed to comply with that Order, were designated by the NRC as Safeguards Information (SGI) and were not released to the public. These Orders included a local criminal history records check to determine trustworthiness and reliability of individuals seeking unescorted access to E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1
