This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Certificate of Electrical Training and Applications for Mine Safety and Health Administration Approved Tests and State Tests Administered as Part of a Mine Safety and Health Administration Approved Program information collection. Instructors use MSHA Form 5000–1, ‘‘Certificate of Electrical Training,’’ to report the qualification of persons satisfactorily completing a coal mine electrical training program course to the MSHA. The Agency is also requesting approval for applications for MSHA approved tests and for State tests that are administered as part of an MSHA-approved State program. Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 sections 101(a) and 103(h) authorize this information collection. See 30 U.S.C 811(a) and 813(h). This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6.

The proposed revisions will improve the consistency of the NRC’s public meetings and help participants better prepare for NRC meetings. DATES: Submit comments by November 14, 2016. Comments received after this date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but the Commission is able to ensure consideration only for comments received on or before this date.
