Download as PDF 33931 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 139 / Friday, July 21, 2017 / Notices responsibility of the CC is to coordinate all ECDS-related institutional communications. In the second stage, the 2017 ECDS will select a sample of up to 22,855 ECD to participate in the survey with the goal of attaining 18,000 eligible ECD respondents. The HA, with the help of the CC, will notify the sampled individuals of their selection and NSF will survey these individuals. Estimate of Burden: In the 2017 ECDS, taking into account all five respondent types (HA, CC, LC, ECD, and ineligible respondents), we estimate the total respondent burden to be 12,641 hours. We estimate a total burden of 157 hours for HAs, 470 hours for CCs, 2,400 hours for list coordinators, 9,600 hours for ECD, and 14 hours for ineligible respondents. These estimates use the burden information collected during the Pilot ECDS and assume that 300 institutions will participate (approximately 86%) during stage 1 of the 2017 ECDS data collection, 240 of the participating institutions (80%) will send pre-notification emails to potential respondents in stage 2 of data collection, and that the 22,855 sample size will result in 18,000 eligible responding ECD and 410 ineligible respondents. The amount of time for eligible responding ECD to complete the 2017 ECDS questionnaire may vary depending on an individual’s circumstances; however, NCSES estimate it will take approximately 32 minutes. The below table shows the estimated burden by stage and respondent type.

Based on additional analysis, the final sample sizes decreased to a sample of approximately 350 institutions and 22,855 individuals. (2) The first notice also stated ‘‘Sample members will be invited to participate in a 40-minute web-based questionnaire.’’ Since the first notice, NCSES further revised the Pilot ECDS questionnaire to reduce the time needed to complete the survey to 32 minutes. (3) NCSES reduced the estimated burden to 12,641 hours from the 19,900 hours provided in the first notice. This reduction in the estimated burden was a result of the smaller sample sizes, a reduction in the time to complete the survey, and a change in the expected response rate.

Both are staff of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555–0001. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Guide 5.22 was published in April 1974 to provide guidance on meeting the requirements related to material control and accounting (MC&A) statistical control procedures in § 70.22(b) of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘Contents of applications.’’ This requirement, regarding submittal of the licensees’ description of its MC&A procedures, did not specifically require the methodology that the guidance in RG 5.22 addressed and no longer exists in 10 CFR 70.22(b). The MC&A requirements have all been moved to 10 CFR part 74 and no specific requirements exist for assessing the assumption of normality. Regulatory Guide 5.22 endorsed the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Standard N15.15–1973, ‘‘Assessment of the Assumption of Normality (Employing Individual Observed Values),’’ with qualifications. The ANSI Standard N15.15–1973 provided a common method used in assessing the assumption of normality in a data set. However, the NRC is not aware that any licensee ever used this particular RG or the ANSI standard it endorsed since the method is not required by NRC regulations. Instructions on performing such an analysis, if a licensee chose to test their MC&A data for the assumption of PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 33933 normality, can be found in NUREG/CR– 4604 (PNL–5849), ‘‘Statistical Methods for Nuclear Material Management’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML103430339). NUREG/CR–4604 was developed to be a comprehensive guidance document on statistical methods that licensees may use in evaluating MC&A data. Withdrawal of a RG means that the guide no longer provides useful information or has been superseded by other guidance, technological innovations, congressional actions, or other events. The NRC is withdrawing RG 5.22 because it is no longer needed. The withdrawal of RG 5.22 does not alter any prior or existing NRC licensing approvals or the acceptability of licensee commitments to RG 5.22. Although RG 5.22 is withdrawn, current licensees may continue to use it, and withdrawal does not affect any existing licenses or agreements. However, by withdrawing RG 5.22, the NRC will no longer approve its use in future requests or applications for NRC licensing actions. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 17th day of July, 2017.

II. Background

    Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted an extension of four 
collections of information to OMB for review entitled, ``DOE/NRC Form 
740M, Concise Note; DOE/NRC Form 741, Nuclear Material Transaction 
Report; DOE/NRC Form 742, Material Balance Report; DOE/NRC Form 742C, 
Physical Inventory Listing.'' 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 control number.
    The NRC published a Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment 
period on this information collection on October 28, 2016, 81 FR 75167.
    1. The title of the information collection: DOE/NRC Form 740M,

used when needed.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Any licensee who 
ships, receives, or otherwise undergoes an inventory change of nuclear 
material is required to submit a DOE/NRC Form 741 to document the 
change. Additional information regarding these transactions shall be 
submitted through Form 740M, with Safeguards Information identified and 
handled in accordance with Sec.  73.21 of Title of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR), ``Protection of Safeguards Information: 
Performance requirements.''
    Any licensee who had possessed in the previous reporting period, at 
any one time and location, nuclear material in a quantity totaling one 
gram or more shall complete DOE/NRC Form 742. In addition, each 
licensee, Federal or State, who is authorized to possess, at any one 
time or location, one kilogram of foreign obligated source material, is 
required to file with the NRC an annual statement of source material 
inventory which is foreign obligated.
    Any licensee, who had possessed in the previous reporting period, 
at any one time and location, special nuclear material in a quantity 
totaling one gram or more shall complete DOE/NRC Form 742C.
