II. Additional Information The NRC is issuing for public comment a DG in the NRC’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide Series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information regarding methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated events, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. The DG, entitled ‘‘Physical Inventories and Material Balances at Fuel Cycle Facilities,’’ is a proposed new guide, temporarily identified by its task number, DG–5056. This new RG would provide guidance for meeting the nuclear material control and accounting (MC&A) requirements in part 74 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘Material Control and Accounting of Special Nuclear Material,’’ that cover these topics. The DG–5056 updates guidance previously provided by: • RG 5.13, ‘‘Conduct of Nuclear Material Physical Inventories,’’ published in November 1973; and • RG 5.33, ‘‘Statistical Evaluation of Material Unaccounted For’’ published in June 1974. Due to several rulemakings that occurred from 1985 to 2002, which significantly amended the MC&A requirements, the above regulatory guides are now outdated as they no longer cite the correct sections of the regulations. Accordingly, RG 5.13 and RG 5.33 will be withdrawn concurrent with any later issuance of DG–5056 in final form, as DG–5056 would provide the correct citations to the 10 CFR part 74 regulations. The NRC’s guidance on the MC&A requirements pertaining to the performance, evaluation, and reporting of physical inventories and material balances at fuel cycle facilities is also provided in the following NUREGs that were issued in conjunction with the 1985–2002, MC&A rulemakings: • NUREG–1280, ‘‘Standard Format and Content Acceptance Criteria for the Material Control and Accounting (MC&A) Reform Amendment,’’ applicable to facilities using formula quantities of strategic SNM. • NUREG–1065, ‘‘Acceptable Standard Format and Content for the Fundamental Nuclear Material Control (FNMC) Plan Required for Low- VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:20 Feb 23, 2017 Jkt 241001 Enriched Uranium Facilities,’’ applicable to fuel fabrication facilities using low-enriched uranium. • NUREG/CR–5734, ‘‘Recommendations to the NRC on Acceptable Standard Format and Content for the Fundamental Nuclear Material Control (FNMC) Plan Required for Low-Enriched Uranium Enrichment Facilities,’’ applicable to uranium enrichment plants. This DG–5056 incorporates guidance from these NUREGs that relates to physical inventories and material balances for SNM. In addition to providing guidance on these topics, the NUREGs listed above cover other MC&A requirements as well. Accordingly, these NUREGs would not be withdrawn when DG–5056 is issued in final form. III. Backfitting and Issue Finality Issuance of DG–5056 in final form would not constitute backfitting as defined in 10 CFR 70.76 or violate the issue finality provisions of part 52 for several reasons. First, many of the provisions in the guidance are only updated to reflect the codification of several MC&A provisions in part 74 from part 70, and do not represent substantive changes. Second, DG–5056 would incorporate relevant guidance from NUREG–1280, NUREG–1065, and NUREG/CR–5734 and associated rulemakings without making substantive changes to those positions; these rulemakings and guidance considered the backfitting implications of any new positions, as appropriate, upon their issuance. Finally, as discussed in the ‘‘Implementation’’ section of DG–5056, applicants and licensees may voluntarily use its guidance to demonstrate compliance with the part 74 MC&A regulations pertaining to the performance, evaluation, and reporting of physical inventories and material balances. Alternate methods of demonstrating such compliance may be deemed acceptable if they provide sufficient basis and information for the NRC staff to verify that the proposed alternative demonstrates compliance with the relevant NRC regulations. Accordingly, the issuance of this guidance in final form would not constitute a ‘‘new’’ or ‘‘different’’ staff position within the definition of ‘‘backfitting’’ in 10 CFR 70.76 or the issue finality provisions in part 52.

Chapter 35), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) is forwarding 4 Information Collection Requests (ICR) to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Our ICR describes the information we seek to collect from the public. Review and approval by OIRA ensures that we impose appropriate paperwork burdens. The RRB invites comments on the proposed collections of information to determine (1) the practical utility of the collections; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the collections; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information that is the SUMMARY: subject of collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of collections on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments to the RRB or OIRA must contain the OMB control number of the ICR. For proper consideration of your comments, it is best if the RRB and OIRA receive them within 30 days of the publication date. 1. Title and purpose of information collection: Placement Service; OMB 3220–0057. Section 12(i) of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA), authorizes the RRB to establish, maintain, and operate free employment offices to provide claimants for unemployment benefits with job placement opportunities. Section 704(d) of the Regional Railroad Reorganization Act of 1973, as amended, and as extended by the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, required the RRB to maintain and distribute a list of railroad job vacancies, by class and craft, based on information furnished by rail carriers to the RRB. Although the requirement under the law expired effective August 13, 1987, the RRB has continued to obtain this information in keeping with its employment service responsibilities under Section 12(k) of the RUIA. Application procedures for the job placement program are prescribed in 20 CFR 325. The procedures pertaining to the RRB’s obtaining and distributing job vacancy reports furnished by rail carriers are described in 20 CFR 346.1. The RRB currently utilizes four forms to obtain information needed to carry out its job placement responsibilities. Form ES–2, Central Register Notification, is used by the RRB to obtain information needed to update a computerized central register of separated and furloughed railroad employees available for employment in the railroad industry.

Abstract: Under the RUIA, the Railroad Retirement Board provides job placement assistance for unemployed railroad workers. The collection obtains information from job applicants, railroad employers, and State Employment Service offices for use in placement, for providing referrals for job openings, reports of referral results and for verifying and monitoring claimant eligibility. Changes proposed: The RRB proposes no revisions to the forms in the collection. The burden estimate for the ICR is as follows: Annual responses Form No. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES and ES–21c, Report of State Employment Service Office, are used by the RRB to provide placement assistance for unemployed railroad employees through arrangements with State Employment Service offices.

Completion of these forms is required to obtain or maintain a benefit. In addition, the RRB also collects Railroad Job Vacancies information received voluntarily from railroad employers. Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the initial 60-day notice (81 FR 89521 on December 12, 2016) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). That request elicited no comments.
