ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and solicitation of public comment. AGENCY: The NRC has recently submitted to OMB for review the following proposal for the collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). The NRC hereby informs potential respondents that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The NRC published a Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period on this information collection on July 9, 2010. 1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Revision. 2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 19, Notices, Instructions, and Reports to Workers: Inspection and Investigations. 3. Current OMB approval number: 3150–0044. 4. The form number if applicable: N/ A. 5. How often the collection is required: As necessary in order that adequate and timely reports of radiation exposure be made to individuals involved in NRC-licensed activities. 6. Who will be required or asked to report: Licensees authorized to receive, possess, use, or transfer material licensed by the NRC. 7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 3,967 (123 responses + 3,844 recordkeepers). 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 3,844. 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 31,795. 10. Abstract: Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 19, requires licensees to advise workers on an annual basis of any radiation exposure in excess of 1 mSv (100 mrem) they may have received as a result of NRClicensed activities or when certain conditions are met. These conditions apply during termination of the worker’s employment, at the request of the workers, former workers, or when the worker’s employer (the NRC mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:45 Oct 15, 2010 Jkt 223001 licensee) must report radiation exposure information on the worker to the NRC. Part 19 also establishes requirements for instructions by licensees to individuals participating in licensed activities and options available to these individuals in connection with Commission inspections of licensees to ascertain compliance with the provisions of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended. Title II of the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, and regulations, orders and licenses there under regarding radiological working conditions. The worker should be informed of the radiation dose he or she receives because: (a) That information is needed by both a new employer and the individual when the employee changes jobs in the nuclear industry; (b) the individual needs to know the radiation dose received as a result of the accident or incident (if this dose is in excess of the 10 CFR Part 20 limits) so that he or she can seek counseling about future work involving radiation, medical attention, or both, as desired; and (c) since long-term exposure to radiation may be an adverse health factor, the individual needs to know whether the accumulated dose is being controlled within NRC limits. The worker also needs to know about health risks from occupational exposure to radioactive materials or radiation, precautions or procedures to minimize exposure, worker responsibilities and options to report any licensee conditions which may lead to or cause a violation of Commission regulations, and individual radiation exposure reports which are available to him.

Fermi 1 is a permanently shutdown nuclear reactor facility. The license provides, among other things, that the licensee is subject to the rules, regulations, and orders of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) now or hereafter in effect. Fermi 1 was a fast breeder reactor power plant cooled by sodium and operated at essentially atmospheric pressure. In November 1972, the Power Reactor Development Company (PRDC), the licensee at that time, made the decision to decommission Fermi 1. The fuel and blanket subassemblies were shipped offsite in 1973. Most of the decommissioning of the Fermi 1 plant was completed in December 1975. The facility is permanently shut down and defueled and the licensee is no longer authorized to operate or place fuel in the reactor. The license for Fermi 1 expires in 2025. Fuel for the Fermi 1 reactor was assigned to the project under an Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) lease agreement. At the time of decommissioning, consistent with the lease agreement, the AEC agreed to accept the fuel from Fermi 1 at its Savannah River Project (SRP) facility. The first shipment of fuel from the site was made on February 6, 1973. On May 15, 1973, the last shipment of fuel PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 63867 arrived at the SRP. Disposal of all the blanket subassemblies, which contained special nuclear material (SNM), was accomplished by shipment to the Idaho Chemical Processing Plant. A letter dated November 6, 1975, from the PRDC, documented the completed removal from the site of the fuel and blanket material containing SNM. By letter dated November 26, 1996, the licensee requested that the NRC clarify the applicability of certain recently revised NRC regulations to Fermi 1, including 10 CFR 50.54(p), which addresses the safeguards contingency plan. In the NRC’s response, dated June 25, 1997, the staff determined that the physical protection for Fermi 1 was adequate without the safeguards contingency plan based on the prior removal of the SNM from the Fermi 1 site and the non-operational status of the facility, but the NRC did not specifically grant an exemption from 10 CFR 50.54(p). Fermi 1 is currently licensed to possess not more than 15 grams of uranium-235, uranium-233 or plutonium, or any combination thereof, with plutonium activity totaling no more than 2 curies. The licensee is permitted to possess this nominal quantity of SNM due to material that may remain in plant systems or be associated with radioactive apparatus or equipment. The 15 gram and 2 curie limit was considered a minimal quantity and was below the criteria requiring emergency planning, criticality monitoring, or material status reports per 10 CFR Part 70 and 10 CFR Part 74. 2.0 Action Section 50.54(p)(1) of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations states, ‘‘The licensee shall prepare and maintain safeguards contingency plan procedures in accordance with Appendix C of Part 73 of this chapter for affecting the actions and decisions contained in the Responsibility Matrix of the safeguards contingency plan.’’ Part 73 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, ‘‘Physical Protection of Plant and Materials,’’ provides, ‘‘This part prescribes requirements for the establishment and maintenance of a physical protection system which will have capabilities for the protection of special nuclear material at fixed sites and in transit and of plants in which special nuclear material is used.’’ In Section 73.55, entitled ‘‘Requirements for physical protection of licensed activities in nuclear power reactors against radiological sabotage,’’ paragraph (b)(1) states, ‘‘The licensee shall establish and maintain a physical protection program, E:\FR\FM\18OCN1.SGM 18OCN1
