Practicable alternative formats are set forth in 10 CFR 73.4. The licensee shall establish procedures to ensure that the quality of the fingerprints taken results in minimizing the rejection rate of fingerprint cards due to illegible or incomplete cards. 2. The NRC will review submitted fingerprint cards for completeness. Any Form FD–258 fingerprint record containing omissions or evident errors will be returned to the licensee for corrections. The fee for processing fingerprint checks includes one resubmission if the initial submission is returned by the FBI because the fingerprint impressions cannot be classified. The one free resubmission must have the FBI Transaction Control Number reflected on the re-submission. If additional submissions are necessary, they will be treated as initial submittals and will require a second payment of the processing fee. 3. Fees for processing fingerprint checks are due upon application. The licensee shall submit payment of the processing fees electronically. In order to be able to submit secure electronic payments, licensees will need to establish an account with Pay.Gov (https://www.pay.gov). To request an account, the licensee shall send an email to det@nrc.gov. The e-mail must include the licensee’s company name, address, point of contact (POC), POC email address, and phone number. The NRC will forward the request to Pay.Gov; who will contact the licensee with a password and user lD. Once licensees have established an account and submitted payment to Pay.Gov, they shall obtain a receipt. The licensee shall submit the receipt from Pay.Gov to the NRC along with fingerprint cards. For additional guidance on making electronic payments, contact the Facilities Security Branch, Division of Facilities and Security, at (301) 415– 7739. Combined payment for multiple applications is acceptable. The application fee (currently $36) is the sum of the user fee charged by the FBI for each fingerprint card or other fingerprint record submitted by the NRC on behalf of a licensee, and an NRC processing fee, which covers administrative costs associated with VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:28 Mar 20, 2009 Jkt 217001 NRC handling of licensee fingerprint submissions. The Commission will directly notify licensees who are subject to this regulation of any fee changes. 4. The Commission will forward to the submitting licensee all data received from the FBI as a result of the licensee’s application(s) for criminal history records checks, including the FBI fingerprint record. F. Right To Correct and Complete Information 1. Prior to any final adverse determination, the licensee shall make available to the individual the contents of any criminal history records obtained from the FBI for the purpose of assuring correct and complete information. Written confirmation by the individual of receipt of this notification must be maintained by the licensee for a period of one (1) year from the date of notification. 2. If, after reviewing the record, an individual believes that it is incorrect or incomplete in any respect and wishes to change, correct, or update the alleged deficiency, or to explain any matter in the record, the individual may initiate challenge procedures. These procedures include either direct application by the individual challenging the record to the agency (i.e., law enforcement agency) that contributed the questioned information, or direct challenge as to the accuracy or completeness of any entry on the criminal history record to the Assistant Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation Identification Division, Washington, DC 20537–9700 (as set forth in 28 CFR 16.30 through 16.34). In the latter case, the FBI forwards the challenge to the agency that submitted the data and requests that agency to verify or correct the challenged entry. Upon receipt of an official communication directly from the agency that contributed the original information, the FBI Identification Division makes any changes necessary in accordance with the information supplied by that agency. The licensee must provide at least ten (10) days for an individual to initiate an action challenging the results of a FBI CHRC after the record is made available for his/her review. The licensee may make a final access determination based upon the criminal history record only upon receipt of the FBI’s ultimate confirmation or correction of the record. Upon a final adverse determination on access to an ISFSI, the licensee shall provide the individual its documented basis for denial. Access to an ISFSI shall not be granted to an individual during the review process. PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12159 G. Protection of Information 1. The licensee shall develop, implement, and maintain a system for personnel information management with appropriate procedures for the protection of personal, confidential information. This system shall be designed to prohibit unauthorized access to sensitive information and to prohibit modification of the information without authorization. 2. Each licensee who obtains a criminal history record on an individual pursuant to this Order shall establish and maintain a system of files and procedures, for protecting the record and the personal information from unauthorized disclosure. 3. The licensee may not disclose the record or personal information collected and maintained to persons other than the subject individual, his/her representative, or to those who have a need to access the information in performing assigned duties in the process of determining suitability for unescorted access to the protected area of an ISFSI. No individual authorized to have access to the information may redisseminate the information to any other individual who does not have the appropriate need-to-know. 4. The personal information obtained on an individual from a criminal history record check may be transferred to another licensee if the gaining licensee receives the individual’s written request to re-disseminate the information contained in his/her file, and the gaining licensee verifies information such as the individual’s name, date of birth, social security number, sex, and other applicable physical characteristics for identification purposes. 5.

to collect from the public. Review and approval by OIRA ensures that we 
impose appropriate paperwork burdens.
    The RRB invites comments on the proposed collections of information 
to determine (1) The practical utility of the collections; (2) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden of the collections; (3) ways to

    1. Title and Purpose of Information Collection: Employer's 
Quarterly Report of Contributions Under the RUIA, RRB Form DC-1; OMB 
3220-0012.
    Under Section 8 of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA), 
as amended by the Railroad Unemployment Improvement Act of 1988 (Pub. 
L. 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.
    One response is requested quarterly of each respondent and 
completion is mandatory. The estimated completion for the manual and 
Internet version of Form DC-1 is estimated at 25 minutes.
    Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the 
initial 60-day notice (74 FR 3115 on January 16, 2009) required by 44

    2. Title and Purpose of Information Collection: Applicant 
Background Survey: RRB Form EEO-44, OMB 3220-0201.
    This information collection is needed to comply with Federal laws 
and regulations. 5 U.S.C. Chapter 72 section 7201 establishes an anti-
discrimination policy. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 
section 2000e-8 [section 709], requires agencies to make and keep 
relevant records to identify unlawful employment practices. 29 CFR 
section 1602 allows agencies to collect data to determine if there is 
any adverse impact on employment practices such as recruitment or 
selection.
    The RRB's Equal Employment Office collects data to assess the 
impact of the agency's recruitment processes on the hiring of 
minorities, women and people with disabilities. To obtain the 
information necessary to conduct a proper assessment, the RRB utilizes 
Form EEO-44, Applicant Background Survey, which collects information 
about the racial or ethnic identity, gender and disability of 
applicants for RRB jobs from outside of the Federal government.
    Form EEO-44 is only viewed by RRB Human Resources personnel and 
Equal Employment Opportunity officials. Summarized data from all 
external applicants for a position is used to identify hiring barriers 
which limit or tends to limit employment opportunities for members of a 
particular sex, race, or ethnic background, or based on an individual's 
disability status.
    The EEO-44 contains a ``Plain English'' assurance that the 
information will be kept highly confidential and only shared with 
authorized RRB officials. This assurance specifically states that the 
information obtained is kept as a running tally which cannot be 
disaggregated into individual names, that information from the form is 
not entered into the RRB's personnel database, that the information is 
not provided to selecting officials or any others who can affect the 
selection, or to the public, and that the form is destroyed after the 
position is filled. The information maintained does not include the 
applicant's name or other identifier.
    Completion of one form EEO-44 is requested of each respondent and 
completion is voluntary. The RRB estimates the completion time Form 
EEO-44 at 5 minutes.
    Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the 
initial 60-day notice (74 FR 3115 on January 16, 2008) required by 44 
U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That request elicited no comments.
