Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 155 / Wednesday, August 12, 2015 / Notices its review of applications for permits and licenses. Revision 0 of RG 5.84 was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–5036. This guidance is provided to ensure the effective and consistent implementation of the requirements in subpart K, ‘‘FFD Programs for Construction,’’ of part 26, ‘‘Fitness-for-Duty Programs,’’ in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). Part 26 requires certain individuals involved in the construction of nuclear power plants to be fit for duty. The requirements in part 26 are prescriptive in a number of areas, such as drug and alcohol testing; however, in other areas, such as those associated with subpart K, the regulations contain less prescriptive, performance-based requirements. The performance-based regulations in subpart K enable licensees, applicants, and other entities to develop, implement, and/or maintain site-specific (or fleet-wide) FFD programs in a manner that best suits their needs while still meeting regulatory requirements. However, this flexibility, without regulatory guidance, can challenge consistent and effective rule implementation. For example, a licensee can implement sanctions for FFD policy violations that are markedly more or less severe than sanctions for an equivalent violation at another licensee’s construction site. This RG endorses the methodologies described in industry guidance document Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) 06–06, ‘‘Fitness for Duty Program Guidance for New Nuclear Power Plant Construction Sites,’’ revision 6, dated April 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13093A340), with one exception. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES II. Additional Information DG–5036 was published in the Federal Register on November 28, 2014 (79 FR 70898), for a 60-day public comment period. The public comment period closed on January 27, 2015. Public comments on DG–5036 and the staff responses to the public comments are available under ADAMS Accession Number ML15083A410. III. Congressional Review Act This regulatory guide is a rule as defined 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 defined in the Congressional Review Act. 18:16 Aug 11, 2015 Jkt 235001 Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 7th day of August, 2015.

ACTION: Renewal of existing information collection; request for comment. AGENCY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) invites public comment on the renewal of Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for an existing collection of information. The information collection is entitled, ‘‘NRC Form 664, General Licensee Registration.’’ DATES: Submit comments by October 13, 2015. Comments received after this date will be considered if it is practical to do SUMMARY: IV. Backfitting and Issue Finality This regulatory guide provides guidance on the methods acceptable to the NRC staff for complying with the VerDate Sep<11>2014 NRC’s regulations associated with FFD programs of licensees or other entities during construction of new nuclear power reactors. The guide applies to certain current and future applicants for, and holders of, power reactor licenses and construction permits under 10 CFR part 50 and power reactor licenses and early site permits under 10 CFR part 52. Issuance of RG 5.84 does not constitute backfitting under 10 CFR part 50 and is not otherwise inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52. As discussed in the ‘‘Implementation’’ section of RG 5.84, the NRC has no current intention to impose the RG on current holders of 10 CFR part 50 operating licenses or 10 CFR part 52 combined licenses. This RG could be applied to applications for certain 10 CFR part 50 operating licenses or construction permits and 10 CFR part 52 combined licenses and early site permits. Such action would not constitute backfitting as defined in 10 CFR 50.109 or be otherwise inconsistent with the applicable issue finality provision in 10 CFR part 52, inasmuch as such applicants are not within the scope of entities protected by 10 CFR 50.109 or the relevant issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52.

I. Background In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC is requesting public comment on its intention to request the OMB’s approval for the information collection summarized below. 1. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 664, General Licensee Registration. 2. OMB approval number: 3150–0198. 3. Type of submission: Extension. 4. The form number, if applicable: NRC Form 664. 5. How often the collection is required or requested: Annually. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:16 Aug 11, 2015 Jkt 235001 6. Who will be required or asked to respond: General Licensees of the NRC who possess certain generally licensed devices subject to annual registration authorized pursuant to section 31.5 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). 7. The estimated number of annual responses: 564. 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 564. 9. The estimated number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 188 hours (564 annual responses × 1⁄3 hour). 10. Abstract: NRC Form 664 is used by NRC general licensees to make reports regarding certain generally licensed devices subject to annual registration. The registration program allows NRC to better track general licensees, so that they can be contacted or inspected as necessary, and to make sure that generally licensed devices can be identified even if lost or damaged. Also, the registration program ensures that general licensees are aware of and understand the requirements for the possession, use, and disposal of devices containing byproduct material. Greater awareness helps to ensure that general licensees will comply with the regulatory requirements for proper handling and disposal of generally licensed devices and would reduce the potential for incidents that could result in unnecessary radiation exposure to the public and contamination of property. II. Specific Requests for Comments The NRC is seeking comments that address the following questions: 1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical utility? 2. Is the estimate of the burden of the information collection accurate? 3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected? 4. How can the burden of the information collection on respondents be minimized, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology?
