[FR Doc. 2016–15860 Filed 7–5–16; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7510–13–P NATIONAL ARCHIVES AND RECORDS ADMINISTRATION [NARA–2016–040] Records Schedules; Availability and Request for Comments National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). ACTION: Notice of availability of proposed records schedules; request for comments. AGENCY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) publishes notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on what happens to records when agencies no longer need them for current Government business. The records schedules authorize agencies to preserve records of continuing value in the National Archives of the United States and to destroy, after a specified period, records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. NARA publishes notice in the Federal Register for records schedules in which agencies propose to destroy records not previously authorized for disposal or reduce the retention period of records already authorized for disposal. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a). DATES: NARA must receive requests for copies in writing by August 5, 2016. Once NARA finishes appraising the records, we will send you a copy of the ehiers on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:04 Jul 05, 2016 Jkt 238001 schedule you requested. We usually prepare appraisal memoranda that contain additional information concerning the records covered by a proposed schedule. You may also request these. If you do, we will also provide them once we have completed the appraisal. You have 30 days after we send to you these requested documents in which to submit comments. ADDRESSES: You may request a copy of any records schedule identified in this notice by contacting Records Appraisal and Agency Assistance (ACRA) using one of the following means: Mail: NARA (ACRA); 8601 Adelphi Road; College Park, MD 20740–6001. Email: request.schedule@nara.gov. FAX: 301–837–3698. You must cite the control number, which appears in parentheses after the name of the agency that submitted the schedule, and a mailing address. If you would like an appraisal report, please include that in your request. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Margaret Hawkins, Director, by mail at Records Appraisal and Agency Assistance (ACRA), National Archives and Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740– 6001, by phone at 301–837–1799, or by email at request.schedule@nara.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Each year, Federal agencies create billions of records on paper, film, magnetic tape, and other media. To control this accumulation, agency records managers prepare schedules proposing records retention periods and submit these schedules for NARA’s approval. These schedules provide for timely transfer into the National Archives of historically valuable records and authorize the agency to dispose of all other records after the agency no longer needs them to conduct its business. Some schedules are comprehensive and cover all the records of an agency or one of its major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one office or program or a few series of records. Many of these update previously approved schedules, and some include records proposed as permanent. The schedules listed in this notice are media neutral unless otherwise specified. An item in a schedule is media neutral when an agency may apply the disposition instructions to records regardless of the medium in which it creates or maintains the records. Items included in schedules submitted to NARA on or after December 17, 2007, are media neutral unless the item is expressly limited to PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44053 a specific medium. (See 36 CFR 1225.12(e).) Agencies may not destroy Federal records without Archivist of the United States’ approval. The Archivist approves destruction only after thoroughly considering the records’ administrative use by the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private people directly affected by the Government’s activities, and whether or not the records have historical or other value. In addition to identifying the Federal agencies and any subdivisions requesting disposition authority, this notice lists the organizational unit(s) accumulating the records (or notes that the schedule has agency-wide applicability when schedules cover records that may be accumulated throughout an agency); provides the control number assigned to each schedule, the total number of schedule items, and the number of temporary items (the records proposed for destruction); and includes a brief description of the temporary records. The records schedule itself contains a full description of the records at the file unit level as well as their disposition. If NARA staff has prepared an appraisal memorandum for the schedule, it also includes information about the records. You may request additional information about the disposition process at the addresses above. Schedules Pending 1. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service (DAA– 0310–2014–0003, 10 items, 10 temporary items).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Discussion The NRC staff is issuing NUREG– 1927, Revision 1 (ADAMS Accession No. ML16179A148), to provide greater detail and clarity for the various elements of the staff’s safety review of renewal applications for specific ISFSI licenses and certificates of compliance of spent fuel dry storage systems. Through the development of NUREG– 1927, Revision 1, the staff engaged with stakeholders in public meetings to obtain input on potential changes to the guidance. The staff developed the draft NUREG–1927, Revision 1, which addressed the staff’s recent review PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 experience with spent fuel storage renewal reviews and the valuable input received from stakeholders. The draft NUREG–1927, Revision 1, was published for public comment on July 7, 2015 (80 FR 38780). The staff considered public comments received on the draft guidance in preparing the final NUREG–1927, Revision 1. The public comments are located in ADAMS under Accession No. ML15356A560. The staff also prepared responses to the public comments (ADAMS Accession No. ML16125A534). II. Backfitting and Issue Finality Provisions NUREG–1927, Revision 1, provides guidance to the NRC staff for the safety review of renewal applications for specific ISFSI licenses and certificates of compliance of spent fuel dry storage systems. This revision to NUREG–1927 does not present a new staff position, but only clarifies and expands upon information previously provided. Issuance of this NUREG would not constitute backfitting as defined in the backfitting provisions in section 72.62 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), which are applicable to specific ISFSI licensees. Issuance of the NUREG would also not constitute backfitting under 10 CFR 50.109, or otherwise be inconsistent with the issue finality provisions in 10 CFR part 52, which are applicable to general ISFSI licensees using the certificates of compliance. The NRC’s position is based upon the following considerations. 1. The NUREG positions do not constitute backfitting, inasmuch as the NUREG is internal guidance directed at the NRC staff with respect to their regulatory responsibilities. The NUREG provides guidance to the staff on how to review an application for the NRC’s regulatory approval in the form of licensing. Changes in internal staff guidance are not matters for which ISFSI applicants or general ISFSI licensees using certificates of compliance are protected under the backfitting provisions in 10 CFR 72.62 and 10 CFR 50.109, or the issue finality provisions of 10 CFR part 52. 2. The NRC staff has no intention to impose the NUREG positions on existing licensees and regulatory approvals, either now or in the future. The staff does not intend to impose or apply the positions described in the NUREG to existing (already issued) licenses and regulatory approvals. Therefore, the issuance of this NUREG— even if considered guidance which is within the purview of the issue finality provisions in part 52—need not be E:\FR\FM\06JYN1.SGM 06JYN1

[NARA-2016-040]


Records Schedules; Availability and Request for Comments

AGENCY: National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

ACTION: Notice of availability of proposed records schedules; request 
for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) 
publishes notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency 
requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once 
approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on 
what happens to records when agencies no longer need them for current 
Government business. The records schedules authorize agencies to 
preserve records of continuing value in the National Archives of the 
United States and to destroy, after a specified period, records lacking 
administrative, legal, research, or other value. NARA publishes notice 
in the Federal Register for records schedules in which agencies propose 
to destroy records not previously authorized for disposal or reduce the 
retention period of records already authorized for disposal. NARA 
invites public comments on such records schedules, as required by 44 
U.S.C. 3303a(a).

DATES: NARA must receive requests for copies in writing by August 5, 
2016. Once NARA finishes appraising the records, we will send you a 
copy of the schedule you requested. We usually prepare appraisal 
memoranda that contain additional information concerning the records 
covered by a proposed schedule. You may also request these. If you do, 
we will also provide them once we have completed the appraisal. You 
have 30 days after we send to you these requested documents in which to 
submit comments.

ADDRESSES: You may request a copy of any records schedule identified in 
this notice by contacting Records Appraisal and Agency Assistance 
(ACRA) using one of the following means:
    Mail: NARA (ACRA); 8601 Adelphi Road; College Park, MD 20740-6001.
    Email: request.schedule@nara.gov.
    FAX: 301-837-3698.
    You must cite the control number, which appears in parentheses 
after the name of the agency that submitted the schedule, and a mailing 
address. If you would like an appraisal report, please include that in 
your request.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Margaret Hawkins, Director, by mail at 
Records Appraisal and Agency Assistance (ACRA), National Archives and 
Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740-6001, 
by phone at 301-837-1799, or by email at request.schedule@nara.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Each year, Federal agencies create billions 
of records on paper, film, magnetic tape, and other media. To control 
this accumulation, agency records managers prepare schedules proposing 
records retention periods and submit these schedules for NARA's 
approval. These schedules provide for timely transfer into the National 
Archives of historically valuable records and authorize the agency to 
dispose of all other records after the agency no longer needs them to 
conduct its business. Some schedules are comprehensive and cover all 
the records of an agency or one of its major subdivisions. Most 
schedules, however, cover records of only one office or program or a 
few series of records. Many of these update previously approved 
schedules, and some include records proposed as permanent.
    The schedules listed in this notice are media neutral unless 
otherwise specified. An item in a schedule is media neutral when an 
agency may apply the disposition instructions to records regardless of 
the medium in which it creates or maintains the records. Items included 
in schedules submitted to NARA on or after December 17, 2007, are media 
neutral unless the item is expressly limited to a specific medium. (See 
36 CFR 1225.12(e).)
    Agencies may not destroy Federal records without Archivist of the 
United States' approval. The Archivist approves destruction only after 
thoroughly considering the records' administrative use by the agency of 
origin, the rights of the Government and of private people directly 
affected by the Government's activities, and whether or not the records 
have historical or other value.
    In addition to identifying the Federal agencies and any 
subdivisions requesting disposition authority, this notice lists the 
organizational unit(s) accumulating the records (or notes that the 
schedule has agency-wide applicability when schedules cover records 
that may be accumulated throughout an agency); provides the control 
number assigned to each schedule, the total number of schedule items, 
and the number of temporary items (the records proposed for 
destruction); and includes a brief description of the temporary 
records. The records schedule itself contains a full description of the 
records at the file unit level as well as their disposition. If NARA 
staff has prepared an appraisal memorandum for the schedule, it also 
includes information about the records. You may request additional 
information about the disposition process at the addresses above.
