Proposed Collection; Comment Request, 70358-70359 [2013-28197]

Download as PDF 70358 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 227 / Monday, November 25, 2013 / Notices containment venting systems required by this order are intended to increase confidence in maintaining the containment function following core damage events. Although venting the containment during severe accident conditions could result in the release of radioactive materials, venting could also prevent containment structural and gross penetration leakage failures due to over pressurization that would hamper accident management (e.g., continuing efforts to cool core debris) and ultimately result in larger, uncontrolled releases of radioactive material. On November 7, 2013, NEI submitted NEI 13–02, ‘‘Industry Guidance for Compliance with Order EA–13–109,’’ Revision 0 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13316A853) to provide specification for the development, implementation, and maintenance of guidance in response to the order regarding reliable hardened containment vents capable of operation under severe accident conditions. This ISG endorses, with clarifications, the methodologies described in the industry guidance document NEI 13–02. 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: Certification 
Regarding Rights to Unemployment Benefits; OMB 3220-0079.
    Under Section 4 of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA), 
an employee who leaves work voluntarily is disqualified for 
unemployment benefits unless the employee left work for good cause and 
is not qualified for unemployment benefits under any other law. RRB 
Form UI-45, Claimant's Statement--Voluntary Leaving of Work, is used by

    2. Title and purpose of information collection: Railroad Separation 
Allowance or Severance Pay Report; OMB 3220-0173.
    Section 6 of the Railroad Retirement Act provides for a lump-sum 
payment to an employee or the employee's survivors equal to the Tier II 
taxes paid by the employee on a separation allowance or severance 
payment for which the employee did not receive credits toward 
retirement. The lump-sum is not payable until retirement benefits begin 
to accrue or the employee dies. Also, Section 4(a-1)(iii) of the 
Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act provides that a railroad employee 
who is paid a separation allowance is disqualified for unemployment and 
sickness benefits for the period of time the employee would have to 
work to

[[Page 70359]]

earn the amount of the allowance. The reporting requirements are 
specified in 20 CFR 209.14.
    In order to calculate and provide payments, the Railroad Retirement 
Board (RRB) must collect and maintain records of separation allowances 
and severance payments which were subject to Tier II taxation from 
railroad employers. The RRB uses Form BA-9, Report of Separation 
Allowance or Severance Pay, to obtain information from railroad 
employers concerning the separation allowances and severance payments 
made to railroad employees and/or the survivors of railroad employees. 
Employers currently have the option of submitting their reports on

Transfer Protocol (FTP), or secure Email.
    Completion is mandatory. One response is requested of each 
respondent. The RRB proposes no changes to Form BA-9.
