Introduction The NRC is issuing a revision to an existing guide in the NRC’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the agency’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. Revision 2 of RG 2.3 was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–2005. This guide describes a method that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable for complying with the Commission’s regulations concerning establishing and executing a quality assurance program for verifying the quality of plate-type uraniumaluminum fuel elements used in RTRs. This guide describes methods that the NRC’s staff considers acceptable to implement Section 50.34(a)(7) of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), which requires each applicant for a construction permit to build a production or utilization facility to describe in its preliminary safety analysis report the quality assurance program that will be applied to the design, fabrication, construction, and testing of the facility’s structures, systems, and components. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:40 May 31, 2013 Jkt 229001 33133 II. Additional Information RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD The NRC published DG–2005 in the Federal Register on March 22, 2012 (77 FR 16868) for a 60-day public comment period. The public comment period closed on May 21, 2012. Public comments on DG–2005 and the NRC staff responses to the public comments are available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML12160A496. Proposed Collection; Comment Request III. Congressional Review Act This regulatory guide is a rule as designated in the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801–808). However, the Office of Management and Budget has not found it to be a major rule as designated in the Congressional Review Act. IV. Backfitting and Issue Finality The NRC’s backfit provisions are found in its regulations at 10 CFR 50.109, 70.76, 72.62, and 76.76, and its issue finality provisions are located in 10 CFR part 52. Under Section 50.2, non-power reactors are research or test reactors licensed in accordance with Sections 103 or 104.c of the AEA and 10 CFR 50.21(c) or 50.22 for research and development. Accordingly, the backfit provisions of Part 50 would be the only backfit provisions potentially implicated by the issuance of this regulatory guide. The NRC has determined that the backfit provisions in Section 50.109 do not apply to test, research, or training reactors because the rulemaking record for Section 50.109 indicates that the Commission intended to apply this provision to only power reactors, and NRC practice has been consistent with this rulemaking record. The Part 52 issue finality provisions do not apply to test, research, or training reactors because these reactors are not licensed under Part 52. Therefore, no backfit determination need be made regarding the issuance of this regulatory guide. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 23rd day of May, 2013. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed information 
collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; 
(b) the accuracy of the RRB's estimate of the burden of the collection 
of the information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and 
clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize 
the burden related to the collection of information on respondents, 
including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology.
    1. Title and purpose of information collection: Employer Service 
and Compensation Reports; OMB 3220-0070. Section 2(c) of the Railroad 
Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA) specifies the maximum normal 
unemployment and sickness benefits that may be paid in a benefit year. 
Section 2(c) further provides for extended benefits for certain 
employees and for beginning a benefit year early for other employees. 
The conditions for these actions are prescribed in 20 CFR part 302.

needed by the RRB to administer Section 2(c) is not always available 
from annual reports filed by railroad employers with the RRB (OMB 3220-
0008). When this occurs, the RRB must obtain supplemental information 
about service and compensation.
    The RRB utilizes Form UI-41, Supplemental Report of Service and 
Compensation, and Form UI-41a, Supplemental Report of Compensation, to 
obtain the additional information about service and compensation from 
railroad employers. Completion of the forms is mandatory. One response

    2. Title and purpose of information collection: Supplement to Claim

1985, the Tier I or the overall minimum (O/M) portion of an annuity, 
and Medicare benefits payable under the Railroad Retirement Act to 
certain beneficiaries living outside the U.S., may be withheld. The 
benefit withholding provision of Public Law 98-21 applies to divorced

beginning date. The benefit withholding provision does not apply, 
however to a beneficiary who is exempt under either a treaty obligation 
of the U.S., in effect on August 1, 1956, or a totalization agreement 
between the U.S. and the country in which the beneficiary resides, or 
to an individual who is exempt under other criteria specified in Public
