Download as PDF 66388 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 239 / Tuesday, December 15, 2009 / Notices sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES NRC plans to conduct a series of workshops to maximize the involvement of interested persons in this effort to develop the safety culture definition and the description/traits that will be used to develop the final safety culture policy statement. (2) Background In SECY–09–0075 (ADAMS Number ML091130068), dated May 18, 2009, the staff provided a draft safety culture policy statement to the Commission for its approval. SECY–09–0075 also provided a response to the questions posed in Staff Requirements Memorandum (SRM) COMGBJ–08–0001 (ADAMS Number ML080560476). Based on document reviews and other information collection activities addressing safety culture, as well as outreach activities which included a public meeting held on February 3, 2009, (ADAMS Number ML090270103 for the notice with topics to be discussed and meeting summary, ADAMS Number ML090930572), the staff concluded the following: (1) The Commission’s expectations for safety culture should be published in one policy statement entitled, ‘‘Safety Culture Policy Statement;’’ (2) the current Reactor Oversight Process (ROP), which includes consideration of cross-cutting aspects of inspection findings, offers valuable insights into licensee’s safety culture; (3) the staff should enhance its safety culture initiative for materials licensees, which includes obtaining additional stakeholder views on how the NRC can increase attention to safety culture in the materials area; and (4) the staff should continue to engage the Agreement States on how best to increase the involvement of the Agreement States and Agreement State licensees in safety culture initiatives (Note: The ADAMS documents referenced in this notice are publicly available and contain additional information on the NRC’s safety culture initiative, which will not be repeated in this notice. The NRC has established a safety culture Web site that contains additional information on safety culture at http://www.nrc.gov/about-nrc/ regulatory/enforcement/safetyculture.html). On October 16, 2009, the Commission directed the NRC staff in SRM (SECY– 09–0075) to publish the draft safety culture policy statement for public comment for no less than a 90-day public comment period. The draft safety culture policy statement was issued for public comment in a Federal Register Notice (November 6, 2009, 74 FR 57525), which provides individuals and VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:23 Dec 14, 2009 Jkt 220001 organizations with an interest in nuclear safety an opportunity to comment on the draft safety culture policy statement. Additionally, within the SRM, the Commission stressed the importance it places on engaging a broad range of stakeholders in developing the draft final safety culture policy statement in order to ‘‘ensure the final policy statement presented to the Commission benefits from consideration of a spectrum of views and provides the necessary foundation for safety culture applicable to the entire nuclear industry.’’ Interested stakeholders may include, for example, Agreement States, organizations representing NRC licensees or Agreement State licensees, and organizations/unions established to provide government or nuclear safety oversight. Publicly Available Documents: Publicly available documents related to this safety culture initiative can be accessed using the following methods: NRC’s Public Document Room (PDR), where the public may examine, and have copied for a fee, publicly available documents. The address is U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Public Document Room, Public File Area 0–1 F21, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852; or NRC’s Agency wide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS), which can be accessed at http:// www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. From this site, the public can gain entry into ADAMS which provides text and image files of NRC’s public documents. If you do not have access to ADAMS or if you encounter problems in accessing the documents located in ADAMS, contact the PDR Reference staff at 1– 800–397–4209, or (301) 415–4737 or by email to pdr.resource@nrc.gov. (3) Topics for Discussion The topics that will be discussed at these workshops include developing a common safety culture definition and high-level description/traits of areas important to safety culture. This effort will support the development of a final safety culture policy statement that is transparent, understandable and applicable to all individuals performing or overseeing NRC-regulated industries. (4) Agendas Detailed agendas will be available on the NRC Public Meeting Schedule Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/publicinvolve/public-meetings at least ten days prior to each workshop. (5) Format of Workshops To ensure that this process is open, effective, and collaborative, the format PO 00000 Frm 00117 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of each workshop will consist of a panel discussions among stakeholders, including representatives from NRCregulated nuclear industries, interest groups such as unions, and members of the public. The panel discussions will be followed by an interactive discussion with other meeting attendees. The NRC is requesting that individuals or organizations with an interest in nuclear safety nominate/self-nominate individuals to participate in the panel discussions (e.g., nuclear power reactor licensees, nuclear fuel cycle facility licensees, Agreement State regulators and so forth should each nominate one or more individuals to speak for that industry/group of licensees/ organizations/unions; members of the public with a background/specific interest in safety culture should selfnominate). Nominations and requests to participate in the panel discussions are requested by January 15, 2010. Nominations should also include information supporting the nomination such as affiliation(s) and expertise. The NRC will use the nominations and information supporting the nomination to select final participants with a goal of ensuring a broad spectrum of views and backgrounds. Nominated individuals who are not selected to participate in the panel discussions are highly encouraged to attend the workshops, where there will be opportunities to offer input.

The purpose of this notice is to advise individuals applying for or receiving benefits under the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act of the use made by the RRB of this information obtained from State agencies by means of a computer match. DATES: Submit comments on or before February 16, 2010. ADDRESSES: Address any comments concerning this notice to Beatrice Ezerski, Secretary to the Board, Railroad Retirement Board, 844 North Rush Street, Chicago, Illinois 60611–2092. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Timothy Grant, Railroad Retirement Board, 844 North Rush Street, Chicago, Illinois 60611–2092, telephone number (312) 751–4869. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under certain circumstances, the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988, Public Law 100–503, requires a Federal agency participating in a computer matching program to publish a notice in the Federal Register regarding the establishment of that matching program. Such a notice must VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:23 Dec 14, 2009 Jkt 220001 PO 00000 Frm 00118 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66389 include information in the following first five categories: Name of Participating Agencies: The Railroad Retirement Board and agencies of all 50 States. Purpose of the Match: To identify individuals who have improperly collected benefits provided by the RRB while earning remuneration in nonrailroad employment or while collecting unemployment or sickness benefits paid by a State agency. Authority for Conducting the Match: 45 U.S.C. Sections 231(b) and 362(f) and 42 U.S.C. Section 503(c)(1). Categories of Records and Individuals Covered: All recipients of benefits under the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act during a given period who reside in the States with which the RRB has negotiated a matching program agreement. Records furnished by the States are covered under Privacy Act system of records RRB–21, Railroad Unemployment and Sickness Insurance Benefit System. Inclusive Dates of the Matching Program: Agreements with the individual States will run for either 12 or 18 months. The number of matches conducted with each State during the period of the match will vary from State to State, ranging from 2 to 4 depending on whether the agreement provides for matches to be conducted quarterly or every six months. Procedure: The RRB will furnish the State agency a file of records. The data elements will consist of beneficiary identifying information, such as the name and Social Security Number (SSN), as well as the overall period during which the individual received benefits under the Railroad Unemployment Insurance. The State agency will match on the identifying information. If the matching operation reveals that the individual who had received benefits under the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act also received either unemployment or sickness insurance benefits from the State for any days in the period, the State agency will notify the RRB. Depending on arrangements made between the two jurisdictions, and, in the case of State sickness benefits on the applicable State law, either the RRB or the State agency will attempt to recover the amount of the duplicate payments. If the matching operation reveals that wages had been reported for the individual during the requested period, the State will notify the RRB of this fact and furnish a breakdown of the wages and the name and address of each employer who reported earnings for the individual. The RRB will then write E:\FR\FM\15DEN1.SGM 15DEN1
