ACTION: Notice and Request for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review and Comment. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The EIA has submitted an information collection request to the OMB under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 for a proposed reinstatement and three-year approval to the Form GC–859, ‘‘Nuclear Fuel Data Survey’’ (formerly Form RW– 859) OMB Control Number 1901–0287. Form RW–859 was previously used to collect data for reference year 2002 and was discontinued in 2009. The form designation has been changed to reflect the transfer of functions from the DOE Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (RW) to the DOE Office of the General Counsel (GC). The form is being reinstated to collect data as of June 30, 2013. In addition to reinstating the Nuclear Fuel Data Survey form as Form GC–859 survey, EIA is also proposing to modify the structure and content of the form from Form RW–859. Most of the data reported on Form GC–859 was previously collected by its predecessor form and will be provided to respondents so that they may update their historical data. Some data requirements from previous surveys have been eliminated and replaced by new data required by various stakeholders and data users. DATES: Comments regarding this proposed information collection must be received on or before April 5, 2013. If you anticipate that you will be submitting comments, but find it difficult to do so within the period of time allowed by this notice, please advise the DOE Desk Officer at OMB of your intention to make a submission as soon as possible. The Desk Officer may be telephoned at 202–395–4650.

Data are collected on all discharged nuclear assemblies, projections of future assembly discharges, nuclear fuel storage capacities and inventories at reactor sites and storage facilities, complete reactor operating history, data on special fuel forms including nonstandard and failed fuel, nonfuel components, and Greater Than Class C low-level waste data.

The name and business address of the survey respondents shown in Schedule 1 will continue to be released as public information. For the Forms EIA–63B, 411, 826, 860 and 923, EIA proposes to discontinue applying disclosure limitation rules that test aggregate statistics for the risk of disclosing identifiable information. EIA intends to add the following paragraph to the section on data confidentiality: ‘‘Disclosure limitation procedures are not applied to the statistical data published from the survey information reported on this form. There may be some statistics that are based on data from fewer than three respondents, or that are dominated by data from one or two large respondents. In these cases, it may be possible for a knowledgeable person to closely estimate the information reported by a specific respondent.’’ 1 This form has been under OMB No. 1905–0196. Due to a reorganization of EIA offices, the renewables data collection program is now housed with the electricity data collection program. Therefore, EIA proposes to change the OMB number to 1905–0129. E:\FR\FM\06MRN1.SGM 06MRN1
