Section 12(a) (15 U.S.C. 78l(a)) of the Exchange Act makes it unlawful for any member, broker, or dealer to effect any transaction in any security (other than an exempted security) on a national securities exchange unless such security has been registered under the Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.). Exchange Act Section 12(b) establishes the registration procedures. Exchange Act Section 12(g) requires an issuer that is not a bank or bank holding company to register a class of equity securities (other than exempted securities) within 120 days after its fiscal year end if, on the last day of its fiscal year, the issuer has total assets of more than $10 million and the class of equity securities is ‘‘held of record’’ by either (i) 2,000 persons, or (ii) 500 persons who are not accredited investors. An issuer that is a bank or a bank holding company, must register a class of equity securities (other than exempted securities) within 120 PO 00000 Frm 00097 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 days after the last day of its first fiscal year ended after the effective date of the JOBS Act if, on the last day of its fiscal year, the issuer has total assets of more than $10 million and the class of equity securities is ‘‘held of record’’ by 2,000 or more persons. Form 8–A takes approximately 3 hours to prepare and is filed by approximately 946 respondents for a total annual reporting burden of 2,838 hours (3 hours per response × 946 responses). Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden imposed by the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 days of this publication. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. Please direct your written comment to Thomas Bayer, Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Remi PavlikSimon, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 20549 or send an email to: PRA_ Mailbox@sec.gov.

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has recently 
submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review the 
following proposal for the collection of information under the 
provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 
35). The NRC hereby informs potential respondents that an agency may 
not conduct or sponsor, and that a person is not required to respond to 
a collection of information, unless it displays a currently valid OMB

    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: Notice of Enforcement 
Discretion (NOED) for Operating Power Reactors and Gaseous Diffusion 
Plants (NRC Enforcement Policy).
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0136.
    4. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    5. How often the collection is required: On occasion.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Those licensees that 
voluntarily request enforcement discretion through the NOED process, 
and are granted enforcement discretion.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 20.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 12.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 1,492.
    10. Abstract: The NRC's Enforcement Policy includes the 
circumstances in which the NRC may grant a NOED. On occasion, 
circumstances arise when a power plant licensee's compliance with a 
Technical Specification (TS) Limiting Condition for Operation or any 
other license condition would involve an unnecessary plant shutdown. 
Similarly, for a gaseous diffusion plant, circumstances may arise where 
compliance with a Technical Safety Requirement (TSR) or other condition 
would unnecessarily call for a total plant shutdown, or, compliance 
would unnecessarily place the plant in a condition where safety, 
safeguards, or security features were degraded or inoperable.
    In these circumstances, a licensee or certificate holder may 
request that the NRC exercise enforcement discretion, and the NRC staff 
may choose to not enforce the applicable TS, TSR, or other

license or certificate condition. This enforcement discretion is 
designated as a NOED.
    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, and 
does not involve adverse consequences to the environment, and any other 
information the NRC staff deems necessary before making a decision 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 (NFPA) 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 to the NRC. Licensees who wish to 
withdraw from the NFPA 805 risk informed process must submit a letter 
of retraction.
    The public may examine and have copied for a fee publicly-available 
documents, including the final supporting statement, at the NRC's 
Public Document Room, Room O-1F21, One White Flint North, 11555 
Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852. The OMB clearance requests 
are available at the NRC's Web site: http://www.nrc.gov/public-involve/doc-comment/omb/. The document will be available on the NRC's home page
