Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted: 1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 26, ‘‘Fitness for Duty Programs.’’ 2. Current OMB approval number: 3150–0146. 3. How often the collection is required: Annually and on occasion. 4. Who is required or asked to report: Nuclear power reactor licensees licensed under 10 CFR Part 50 or 52 (except those who have permanently ceased operations and have verified that fuel has been permanently removed from the reactor); all holders of nuclear power plant construction permits and early site permits with a limited work authorization and applicants for nuclear power plant construction permits that have a limited work authorization under the provisions of 10 CFR Part 50; all holders of a combined license for a nuclear power plant issued under 10 CFR Part 52 and applicants for a combined license that have a limited work authorization; all licensee who are authorized to possess, use, or transport formula quantities of strategic special nuclear material (SSNM) under the provisions of 10 CFR Part 70; all holders of a certificate of compliance of an approved compliance plan issued under 10 CFR Part 76, if the holder engages in activities involving formula quantities of SSNM; and all contractor/vendors (C/ V) who implement fitness-for-duty (FFD) programs or program elements to the extent that the licensees and other entities listed in this paragraph rely on those C/V FFD programs or program elements to comply with 10 CFR Part 26. 5.

Abstract: NRC regulations in 10 CFR Part 26 prescribe requirements to establish, implement, and maintain fitness-for-duty programs at affected licensees and other entities. The objectives of these requirements are to provide reasonable assurance that persons subject to the rule are trustworthy, reliable, and not under the influence of any substance, legal or illegal, or mentally or physically impaired from any cause, which in any way could adversely affect their ability to safely and competently perform their duties. These requirements also provide reasonable assurance that the effects of fatigue and degraded alertness on individual’s abilities to safely and competently perform their duties are managed commensurate with maintaining public health and safety. The information collections required by Part 26 are necessary to properly manage FFD programs and to enable effective and efficient regulatory oversight of affected licensees other entities. These licensees and other entities must perform certain tasks, maintain records, and submit reports to comply with Part 26 drug and alcohol provisions and fatigue management requirements. These records and reports are necessary to enable regulatory inspection and evaluation of a licensee’s or entity’s compliance with NRC regulations, its FFD performance, and of any significant FFD-related event to help maintain public health and safety, promote the common defense and security, and protect the environment. Submit, by December 13, 2010, comments that address the following questions: 1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC to properly perform its functions? 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?

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for public 
comment a draft guide in the agency's ``Regulatory Guide'' series. This 
series was developed to describe and make available to the public such 
information as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for 
implementing specific

[[Page 62894]]

parts of the NRC's regulations, techniques that the staff uses in 
evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the 
staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses.
    The draft regulatory guide (DG), entitled, ``Qualification for 
Cement Grouting for Prestressing Tendons in Containment Structures,'' 
is temporarily identified by its task number, DG-1196, which should be 
mentioned in all related correspondence. DG-1196 is proposed Revision 2 
of Regulatory Guide 1.107, dated February 1977.
    This guide describes a method that the staff of the U.S. Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission (NRC) considers acceptable for the use of 
Portland cement grout as the corrosion inhibitor for prestressing 
tendons in prestressed concrete containment structures. This guide also 
provides quality standards for using portland cement grout to protect 
prestressing steel from corrosion.
    The prestressing tendon system of a prestressed concrete 
containment structure is a principal strength element of the structure. 
The ability of the containment structure to withstand the events 
postulated to occur during the life of the structure depends on the 
functional reliability of the structure's principal strength elements. 
Thus, any significant deterioration of the prestressing elements caused 
by corrosion may present a potential risk to public safety. It is 
important that any system for inhibiting the corrosion of prestressing 
elements must possess a high degree of reliability in performing its 
intended function.
