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: Notice of Enforcement Discretion (NOEDs) for Operating Power Reactors and Gaseous Diffusion Plants (GDP) (NRC Enforcement Policy). 2. Current OMB approval number: 3150–0136. 3. How often the collection is required: On occasion. 4. Who is required or asked to report: Nuclear power reactor licensees and SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00081 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 26319 gaseous diffusion plant certificate holders. 5. The number of annual respondents: Approximately 11. 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 1,705. 7. Abstract: The NRC’s Enforcement Policy addresses circumstances in which the NRC may exercise enforcement discretion. A specific type of enforcement discretion is designated as a NOED and relates to circumstances which may arise where a nuclear power plant licensee’s compliance with a Technical Specification Limiting Condition for Operation or other license conditions would involve: (1) An unnecessary plant shutdown; (2) performance of testing, inspection, or system realignment that is inappropriate for the specific plant conditions; or (3) unnecessary delays in plant startup without a corresponding health and safety benefit. Similarly, for a gaseous diffusion plant, circumstances may arise where compliance with a Technical Safety Requirement or other condition would unnecessarily require a total plant shutdown, or, compliance would unnecessarily place the plant in a condition where safety, safeguards, or security features were degraded or inoperable. A licensee or certificate holder seeking the issuance of a NOED, must document the safety basis for the request, including: An evaluation of the safety significance and potential consequences of the proposed request, a description of proposed compensatory measures, a justification for the duration of the request, the basis for the licensee’s or certificate holder’s conclusion that the request does not have a potential adverse impact on the public health and safety, that there will be no adverse consequences to the environment, and any other information the NRC staff deems necessary before the NRC staff makes a decision whether to exercise discretion. In addition, the NRC’s Enforcement Policy includes a provision allowing licensees to voluntarily adopt fire protection requirements contained in the National Fire Protection Association Standard 805, ‘‘Performance Based Standard for Fire Protection for Light Water Reactor Electric Generating Plants, 2001 Edition’’ (NFPA 805). Licensees who wish to implement the risk-informed process in NFPA 805 must submit a letter of intent (LOI) to the NRC. Licensees who wish to withdraw from the NFPA 805 riskinformed process must submit a letter of retraction.

Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

AGENCY: U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

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.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: 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: Notice of Enforcement 
Discretion (NOEDs) for Operating Power Reactors and Gaseous Diffusion 
Plants (GDP) (NRC Enforcement Policy).
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0136.
    3. How often the collection is required: On occasion.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Nuclear power reactor 
licensees and gaseous diffusion plant certificate holders.
    5. The number of annual respondents: Approximately 11.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 1,705.
    7. Abstract: The NRC's Enforcement Policy addresses circumstances 
in which the NRC may exercise enforcement discretion. A specific type 
of enforcement discretion is designated as a NOED and relates to 
circumstances which may arise where a nuclear power plant licensee's 
compliance with a Technical Specification Limiting Condition for 
Operation or other license conditions would involve: (1) An unnecessary 
plant shutdown; (2) performance of testing, inspection, or system 
realignment that is inappropriate for the specific plant conditions; or 
(3) unnecessary delays in plant startup without a corresponding health 
and safety benefit. Similarly, for a gaseous diffusion plant, 
circumstances may arise where compliance with a Technical Safety 
Requirement or other condition would unnecessarily require a total 
plant shutdown, or, compliance would unnecessarily place the plant in a 
condition where safety, safeguards, or security features were degraded 
or inoperable.
    A licensee or certificate holder seeking the issuance of a NOED, 
must document the safety basis for the request, including: An 
evaluation of the safety significance and potential consequences of the 
proposed request, a description of proposed compensatory measures, a 
justification for the duration of the request, the basis for the 
licensee's or certificate holder's conclusion that the request does not 
have a potential adverse impact on the public health and safety, that 
there will be no adverse consequences to the environment, and any other 
information the NRC staff deems necessary before the NRC staff makes a 
decision whether to exercise discretion.
    In addition, the NRC's Enforcement Policy includes a provision 
allowing licensees to voluntarily adopt fire protection requirements 
contained in the National Fire Protection Association Standard 805, 
``Performance Based Standard for Fire Protection for Light Water 
Reactor Electric Generating Plants, 2001 Edition'' (NFPA 805). 
Licensees who wish to implement the risk-informed process in NFPA 805 
must submit a letter of intent (LOI) to the NRC. Licensees who wish to 
withdraw from the NFPA 805 risk-informed process must submit a letter 
of retraction.
