Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review; Comment Request, 43731-43732 [2011-18333]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 140 / Thursday, July 21, 2011 / Notices number of LWIAs selected to participate in this evaluation. The Department seeks comments focused on whether there is a methodology that would yield as credible and reliable an evaluation of the WIA program as random assignment, but avoids adverse affect on the study participants. The Department also welcomes comments that suggest ways to more effectively minimize any adverse impact on the study participants who participate in the study described above. III. Current Actions Following receipt of comments in response to this request, ETA will adjust, as appropriate, the approach for temporarily requiring applicants for WIA intensive services and training at selected LWIAs to participate in random assignment. Comments submitted in response to this request will also become a matter of public record. Signed: at Washington, DC this 15th day of July, 2011. Jane Oates, Assistant Secretary, Employment and Training Administration. [FR Doc. 2011–18355 Filed 7–20–11; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4510–FN–P NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION Notice of Permit Emergency Provision Under the Antarctic Conservation Act of 1978 (Pub. L. 95–541) National Science Foundation. Notice of permit emergency provision for hazardous waste stored in Antarctica at a location other than a permanent station for more than 12 months due to an emergency, as specified by § 671.17. AGENCY: ACTION: The Program of Environment Health and Safety (PEHS) in the Office of Polar Programs (OD/OPP), in accordance with § 671.17, is giving notice that an emergency relating to considerations of human health and safety caused hazardous waste to be stored in a location other than a permanent station for more than 12 months. Hazardous waste in the form of batteries and contaminated snow from small glycol and oil spills has been stored at the Antarctica’s Gamburtsev Province Project South camp (AGAP) since the late 2009 camp closeout. The waste was packaged into 42 sealed containers, with lithium and lead acid batteries filling 21 of the containers. The remaining 21 containers were filled with waste oil, soiled absorbents, wreier-aviles on DSKDVH8Z91PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:00 Jul 20, 2011 Jkt 223001 contaminated snow from small spills, and approximately 5 gallons of glycol in a 55 gallon drum. The waste was strapped to plastic air force pallets and placed in a storage berm. At the time of packing, all containers were sound and there was no evidence of leaks. No one has been back to AGAP since the waste was stored. The South Pole Traverse (SPoT) was scheduled to remove this waste during the 2010–2011 season. The trip to AGAP was scheduled as a side trip between arriving at South Pole and starting the return trip to McMurdo. SPoT encountered bad storms on the way to South Pole. It arrived more than 1 week late, with one tractor incapacitated. With one less tractor to pull the load, the vehicles were travelling much more slowly. Despite this, SPoT set out for AGAP. However, 50 miles into the trip, a second tractor became incapacitated; further slowing progress and limiting the ability of SPoT to self rescue should they have further problems. If SPoT proceeded as planned they would have been in the field late in the season when many of the planes have left and Search and Rescue (SAR) capabilities are significantly reduced. There was concern that SPoT would not arrive in McMurdo before the last plane left the continent for the season. To avoid this potentially dangerous situation, the trip to AGAP to collect the hazardous waste was cancelled. In the 2011–2012 season SPoT’s priority will be to collect the waste at AGAP. Spot will depart McMurdo for South Pole one week earlier than this past season to allow a greater buffer for weather and other delays. Further, SPoT will travel to AGAP with an extra tractor and driver to accommodate any breakdowns and help speed progress. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. Polly A. Penhale at (703) 292–7420.

The estimated number of annual respondents: Approximately 11. 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 1,705. 10. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 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.
