The Part 63 definition of ‘‘controlled area’’ is found in Subpart L—‘‘Postclosure Public Health and Environmental Standards,’’ in section 63.302, and not in Subpart K— ‘‘Preclosure Public Health and Environmental Standards.’’ Since 10 CFR 63.111(a) requires the GROA to meet the requirements of Part 20, the Part 20 definitions are to be applied within the context of Part 63. The site boundary is analogous to the controlled area, defined in Part 20, because the preclosure limits are based on the boundary of the site, defined for preclosure, as that area, surrounding the GROA, for which DOE exercises authority over its use, in accordance with the provisions of Part 63. DOE should clearly identify the controlled site boundary in its demonstration of compliance with Part 20 requirements. However, NRC agrees that the use of the term ‘‘controlled area site boundary’’ may be confusing, and thus is deleting that term from the ISG. The second term, ‘‘doses from those Category 1 event sequences that are expected to occur one or more times per year’’ is used in the ISG method to aggregate doses. Although NRC agrees with the commenter that ITS SSCs should be designed and maintained in such a manner to prevent or avoid frequent failure, this term does not imply that a design that plans for frequent occurrences of ITS SSCs will be acceptable to NRC. Rather, this term is used to ensure that if the applicant submits an application with a Category 1 event sequence that occurs more than once per year, then the reviewer will include all occurrences of that event, when determining if the estimated annual dose meets the performance objectives of Part 63. ISG line 21 has been revised by changing ‘‘controlled site boundary’’ to ‘‘controlled area.’’ ISG lines 36 and 37 have been revised by deleting the sentence, ‘‘The site boundary * * * Part 20.’’ ISG lines 55 and 56 have been revised by changing ‘‘controlled area site boundaries’’ to ‘‘the boundaries of the controlled area.’’ ISG line 136 has been revised by changing ‘‘controlled area site boundary’’ to ‘‘boundary of the site.’’ VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:01 May 30, 2007 Jkt 211001 ISG line 144 has been revised by changing ‘‘controlled area site boundary’’ to ‘‘boundary of the site.’’ ISG lines 169 and 177 have been revised by changing ‘‘controlled-area boundary’’ to ‘‘controlled area.’’ FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, CONTACT: Jon Chen, Project Manager, Division of High-Level Waste Repository Safety, Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555– 0001 [Telephone: (301) 415–5526; fax number: (301) 415–5399; e-mail: jcc2@nrc.gov]; Robert K.

The Commission plans to submit this collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval. Rule 15Bc3–1 (17 CFR 240.15Bc3–1) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) provides that a notice of withdrawal from registration with the Commission as a bank municipal securities dealer must be filed on Form MSDW. PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Commission uses the information submitted on Form MSDW in determining whether it is in the public interest to permit a bank municipal securities dealer to withdraw its registration. This information is also important to the municipal securities dealer’s customers and to the public, because it provides, among other things, the name and address of a person to contact regarding any of the municipal securities dealer’s unfinished business. Based upon past submissions, the staff estimates that approximately 20 respondents in total will utilize this notice procedure annually, with a total burden of 10 hours for all respondents. The staff estimates that the average number of hours necessary for each respondent to comply with the requirements of Rule 15Bc3–1 is 0.5 hours. The average cost per hour is approximately $101. Therefore, the total cost of compliance for all respondents is $1010 ($101 × 0.5 × 20 = $1010). Written comments are invited on: (a) 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; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
