Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 21931-21932 [2011-9414]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 75 / Tuesday, April 19, 2011 / Notices staff finds that the proposed action would not have disproportionately high and adverse human health and environmental effects on minority and low-income populations residing in the vicinity of NRCR. Environmental Impacts of the Alternatives to the Proposed Action As an alternative to license renewal, the NRC staff considered denying the proposed action. If the NRC denied the application for license renewal, reactor operations would cease and decommissioning would be required. The NRC notes that, even with a renewed license, the NRCR will eventually be decommissioned, at which time the environmental effects of decommissioning would occur. Decommissioning would be conducted in accordance with an NRC-approved decommissioning plan which would require a separate environmental review under 10 CFR 51.21. Cessation of reactor operations would reduce or eliminate radioactive effluents and emissions. However, as previously discussed in this environmental assessment, radioactive effluents and emissions from reactor operations constitute a small fraction of the applicable regulatory limits. Therefore, the environmental impacts of license renewal and the denial of the application for license renewal would be similar. In addition, denying the application for license renewal would eliminate the benefits of teaching opportunities, research, and services provided by the NRCR. Alternative Use of Resources The proposed action does not involve the use of any different resources or significant quantities of resources beyond those previously considered in the issuance of Amendment No. 10 to Facility Operating License No. R–76 for the Washington State University Nuclear Research Center Reactor dated August 11, 1982, which renewed the Facility Operating License for a period of 20 years. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Agencies and Persons Consulted In accordance with the agency’s stated policy, the staff consulted with the State Historic Preservation Officer between May 13 and October 21, 2010, and the State Liaison Officer between May 13 and December 2, 2010, regarding the environmental impact of the proposed action. The consultation involved a thorough explanation of the environmental review, the details of this environmental assessment, and the NRC’s findings. The State officials stated that they understood the NRC VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:19 Apr 18, 2011 Jkt 223001 review and had no comments regarding the proposed action. III. Finding of No Significant Impact On the basis of the environmental assessment, the NRC staff concludes that the proposed action will not have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment. Accordingly, the NRC staff has determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed action. For further details with respect to the proposed action, see the licensee’s application dated June 24, 2002 (ML092390202), as supplemented by letters dated August 15, 2007 (ML072410493), June 13, 2008 (ML082380266), and April 7, 2010 (ML101031097). Documents may be examined, and/or copied for a fee, at the NRC’s Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland. Publicly available records will be accessible electronically from the Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Public Electronic Reading Room on the NRC Web site http://www.nrc.gov/readingrm/adams.html.

In a separate release,5 the Commission amended its rules in light of the Act, which amends Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. The Commission had previously estimated the burden of complying with Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act assuming that all filers of Forms 10–K and 20–F would file an auditor’s attestation report. The filers that were included in the estimate but are no longer subject to the 404 requirement are sometimes referred to as ‘‘non-accelerated filers.’’ Form 10–K sets forth the disclosure requirements for annual reports filed by issuers under the Securities Exchange Act.

Based on the number of nonaccelerated filers that filed an annual report in 2009, we estimate that approximately 4,400 annual reports on Form 10–K and approximately 285 annual reports on Form 20–F are filed annually by non-accelerated filers. The current burden estimates for Form 10– K and Form 20–F attribute 0.5 burden hours per issuer for filing the auditor attestation report, including the burden attributed to the related disclosure in the annual report, and do not include any burden attributed to the audit work.6 Consistent with the burden estimates for these forms, that estimate is then split 75% and 25% between internal staff and external professionals for Form 10–K, and 25% and 75% between internal staff and external professionals for Form 20–F. Both estimates assume an hourly rate of $400 for external professionals. Accordingly, we are reducing the aggregate burden estimate by 1,650 hours of internal staff time and $220,000 for external professional services for Form 10–K, and 36 hours of internal staff time and $42,750 for external professional services for Form 20–F.

    In a separate release,\5\ the Commission amended its rules in light 
of the Act, which amends Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. The 
Commission had previously estimated the burden of complying with 
Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act assuming that all filers of

filed by issuers under the Securities Exchange Act. Form 20-F sets 
forth the disclosure requirements for annual reports and registration 
statements filed by foreign private issuers under the Securities 
Exchange Act, as well as many of the

disclosure requirements for registration statements filed by foreign 
private issuers under the Securities Act.
    Based on the number of non-accelerated filers that filed an annual 
report in 2009, we estimate that approximately 4,400 annual reports on 
Form 10-K and approximately 285 annual reports on Form 20-F are filed 
annually by non-accelerated filers. The current burden estimates for 
Form 10-K and Form 20-F attribute 0.5 burden hours per issuer for 
filing the auditor attestation report, including the burden attributed 
to the related disclosure in the annual report, and do not include any 
burden attributed to the audit work.\6\ Consistent with the burden 
estimates for these forms, that estimate is then split 75% and 25% 
between internal staff and external professionals for Form 10-K, and 
25% and 75% between internal staff and external professionals for Form 
20-F. Both estimates assume an hourly rate of $400 for external 
professionals. Accordingly, we are reducing the aggregate burden 
estimate by 1,650 hours of internal staff time and $220,000 for

staff time and $42,750 for external professional services for Form 20-
