ACTION: Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and solicitation of public comment. AGENCY: The NRC invites public comment about our intention to request the OMB’s approval for renewal of an existing information collection that is summarized below. We are required to publish this notice in the Federal Register under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35). Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted: 1. The title of the information collection: NUREG/BR–0238, Materials Annual Fee Billing Handbook; NRC Form 628, ‘‘Financial EDI Authorization’’; NUREG/BR–0254, Payment Methods; and NRC Form 629, ‘‘Authorization for Payment by Credit Card.’’ 2. Current OMB approval number: 3150–0190. 3. How often the collection is required: On occasion (as needed to pay invoices.) 4. Who is required or asked to report: Anyone conducting business with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission including licensees, applicants and individuals who are required to pay a fee for inspections and licenses. 5. The number of annual respondents: 583 (11 for NRC Form 628 and 572 for NRC Form 629 and NUREG/BR–0254). mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:06 Dec 22, 2010 Jkt 223001 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 47 (.9 hour for NRC Form 628 and 46 hours for NRC Form 629 and NUREG/BR–0254). 7. Abstract: The U.S. Department of the Treasury encourages the public to pay monies owed the government through use of the Automated Clearinghouse Network and credit cards. These two methods of payment are used by licensees, applicants, and individuals to pay civil penalties, full cost licensing fees, and inspection fees to the NRC. The NRC Form 628, ‘‘Financial EDI Authorization,’’ provides an option to make electronic payment through the Automated Clearinghouse (ACH) Network and authorizes the licensee’s bank to pay invoices to the NRC through the ACH. The NRC Form 628 requests the licensee’s name; electronic funds transfer contact, telephone number, address, authorized signature and title. NRC Form 629, ‘‘Authorization for Payment by Credit Card,’’ is another option used to authorize payment. The credit card authorization form is used by licensees to authorize payment by credit card for license fees and for payment of fees for fingerprint cards, and solicits information that identifies the cardholder’s name, address, account number, card expiration date, cards accepted, cardholder’s signature, invoice number or license number. There are no recordkeeping requirements associated with this collection. Submit, by February 22, 2011, 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? The public may examine and have copied for a fee publicly available documents, including the draft supporting statement, at the NRC’s Public Document Room, Room O–1F21, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland.

The information provided to the NRC staff through the joint NRC–DEK ITS conversion Web page, hosted by EXCEL Services Corporation (EXCEL) can be found in these supplements. To expedite its review of the application, the NRC staff issued its requests for additional information (RAI) through the KPS ITS Conversion web page and the licensee addressed the RAI by providing responses on the Web page.

To be in compliance with the regulations for written communications for license amendment requests, and to have the database on the KPS dockets before the amendment is issued, the licensee has submitted the information from the database in its supplements to the NRC. No further RAI items are being processed prior to the issuance of the amendment. Members of the public can access the Web site by going to http:// www.excelservices.com. Persons who visit the EXCEL Web site and are unable to locate Kewaunee ITS Conversion information should contact EXCEL directly to acquire archived content.

When it issued the Interim Policy Statement, the Commission also requested comments on it. Subsequently, to implement the Interim Policy Statement, each reactor vendor owners group and the NRC staff began developing standard TS (STS) for reactors supplied by each vendor.

NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[Docket No. 52-044; NRC-2010-0361]


Toshiba Corporation; Acceptance for Docketing of an Application 
for Renewal of the U.S. Advanced Boiling Water Reactor Design 
Certification

    On November 2, 2010, Toshiba Corporation (Toshiba) submitted an 
application to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for a 
design certification (DC) renewal for the U.S. Advanced Boiling Water 
Reactor (ABWR) in accordance with the requirements contained in 10 CFR 
part 52, ``Licenses, Certifications and Approvals for Nuclear Power 
Plants.'' A notice of receipt and availability of this application was 
previously published in the Federal Register (75 FR 71744) on November 
24, 2010.
    The NRC staff has determined that Toshiba has submitted information 
in accordance with 10 CFR part 52 that is acceptable for docketing. The 
Docket Number established for the Toshiba ABWR DC renewal is 52-044.

[[Page 80855]]

    The NRC staff will perform a detailed technical review of the 
application. Docketing of the application does not preclude the NRC 
from requesting additional information from the applicant as the review 
proceeds, nor does it predict whether the Commission will grant or deny 
the application. The Commission will receive a report on the DC renewal 
application from the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards in 
accordance with 10 CFR 52.57, ``Application for Renewal.'' The 
Commission will announce in a future Federal Register notice the 
opportunity to comment on a proposed rulemaking to issue the renewal. 
If the Commission finds that the DC renewal application meets the 
applicable standards of the Atomic Energy Act and the Commission's 
regulations, and that required notifications to other agencies and 
bodies have been made, the Commission will issue a DC renewal, in the 
form and containing conditions and limitations that the Commission 
finds appropriate and necessary.
    Documents may be examined, and/or copied for a fee, at the NRC's 
Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, Public 
File Area O1 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, 
Maryland, and will be accessible electronically through the Agencywide 
Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Public Electronic 
Reading Room link at the NRC Web site http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. The application is also available at http://www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/design-cert.html. Persons who do not have access 
to ADAMS or who encounter problems in accessing documents located in 
ADAMS should contact the NRC PDR Reference staff by telephone at 1-800-
397-4209, 301-415-4737, or by e-mail to pdr.resource@nrc.gov.
