Submitting Comments The NRC cautions you not to include identifying or contact information that you do not want to be publicly disclosed in your comment submission. The NRC posts all comment submissions at http:// www.regulations.gov as well as entering the comment submissions into ADAMS. The NRC does not routinely edit comment submissions to remove identifying or contact information. If you are requesting or aggregating comments from other persons for submission to the OMB, then you should inform those persons not to include identifying or contact information that they do not want to be publicly disclosed in their comment submission. Your request should state that the NRC does not routinely edit comment submissions to remove such information before making the comment submissions available to the public or entering the comment submissions into ADAMS. II. Background Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted a request for renewal of an existing collection of information to OMB for review entitled, ‘‘Fitness-forDuty Programs.’’ 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 (FR) notice with a 60-day comment period on this information collection on June 1, 2017, 82 FR 25345. 1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 26, ‘‘Fitness-forDuty Programs.’’ 2. OMB approval number: 3150–0146. 3. Type of submission: Extension. 4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 890, ‘‘Single Positive Test Form,’’ NRC Form 891, ‘‘Annual Reporting Form for Drug and Alcohol Tests,’’ and NRC Form 892, ‘‘Annual Fatigue Reporting Form.’’ VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:12 Sep 18, 2017 Jkt 241001 5. How often the collection is required or requested: Annually and on occasion. The NRC receives reports on an annual basis that detail fitness-for-duty (FFD) program performance. The NRC also receives, on occasion, reports associated with FFD policy violations or programmatic failures. Depending on the type of violation or programmatic failure, the report would be made within 24 hours of the event occurrence, or within 30 days of completing an investigation into the programmatic failure. 6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Nuclear power reactor licensees licensed under parts 50 and 52 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) (except those who have permanently ceased operations and have verified that fuel has been permanently removed from the reactor); all holders of nuclear power plant construction permits and early site permits with a limited work authorization and applicants for nuclear power plant construction permits that have a limited work authorization under the provisions of 10 CFR part 50; all holders of a combined license for a nuclear power plant issued under 10 CFR part 52 and applicants for a combined license that have a limited work authorization; all licensees who are authorized to possess, use, or transport formula quantities of strategic special nuclear material (SSNM) under the provisions of 10 CFR part 70; all holders of a certificate of compliance of an approved compliance plan issued under 10 CFR part 76, if the holder engages in activities involving formula quantities of SSNM; and all contractor/ vendors (C/Vs) who implement FFD programs or program elements to the extent that the licensees and other entities listed in this paragraph rely on those C/V FFD programs or program elements to comply with 10 CFR part 26. 7. The estimated number of annual responses: 441,833 responses (215 reporting responses + 49 recordkeepers + 441,569 third-party disclosure responses). 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 88,229 respondents (28 drug and alcohol testing programs + 21 fatigue management programs + 88,180 third-party disclosure respondents). 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 719,195.9 hours (6,168.0 hours reporting + 220,998.5 hours recordkeeping + 492,029.4 hours thirdparty disclosure). 10. Abstract: The NRC’s regulations in 10 CFR part 26 prescribe requirements PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 to establish, implement, and maintain FFD programs at affected licensees and other entities. The objectives of these requirements are to provide reasonable assurance that persons subject to the rule are trustworthy, reliable, and not under the influence of any substance, legal or illegal, or mentally or physically impaired from any cause, which in any way could adversely affect their ability to safely and competently perform their duties. These requirements also provide reasonable assurance that the effects of fatigue and degraded alertness on individuals’ abilities to safely and competently perform their duties are managed commensurate with maintaining public health and safety. The information collections required by 10 CFR part 26 are necessary to properly manage FFD programs and to enable effective and efficient regulatory oversight of affected licensees and other entities. These licensees and other entities must perform certain tasks, maintain records, and submit reports to comply with 10 CFR part 26 drug and alcohol and fatigue management requirements. These records and reports are necessary to enable regulatory inspection and evaluation of a licensee’s or other entity’s compliance with NRC regulations, FFD performance, and significant FFD-related events to help maintain public health and safety, promote the common defense and security, and protect the environment. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 14th day of September, 2017. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. David Cullison, NRC Clearance Officer, Office of the Chief Information Officer.

(TTY and TDD users may call the Federal relay service toll-free at 800– 877–8339 and ask to be connected to 202–326–4400, extension 3072.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Annual reporting to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA), and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) is required by law for most employee benefit plans. For example, section 4065 of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 requires annual reporting to PBGC for pension plans covered by title IV of ERISA. To accommodate these filing requirements, PBGC, IRS, and EBSA have jointly promulgated the Form 5500 Series, which includes the Form 5500 Annual Return/Report of Employee Benefit Plan and the Form 5500–SF Short Form Annual Return/Report of Small Employee Benefit Plan. The collection of information has been approved by OMB under control number 1212–0057 through August 31, VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:12 Sep 18, 2017 Jkt 241001 2020. PBGC intends to request that OMB extend its approval, with modifications, for three years. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. PBGC is proposing two modifications to the 2017 Schedule MB (Multiemployer Defined Benefit Plan Actuarial Information) instructions and one modification to the Schedule SB (Single Employer Defined Benefit Plan Actuarial Information) instructions. These modifications affect multiemployer defined benefit plans and single-employer defined benefit plans covered by Title IV of ERISA. With regard to the Schedule MB instructions, PBGC is proposing to change the instructions to require new attachments in two situations as explained below: • If any of the contributions reported in Line 3 (Contributions Made to Plan) include amounts owed for withdrawal liability, PBGC is proposing to require plan administrators to report for each reported contribution (on an attachment to Line 3), the aggregate amount of withdrawal liability payments included in such contribution. This will enable PBGC to allocate the reported contributions between regular contributions and withdrawal liability payments and is consistent with intent of Line 3 to provide contribution information for projection purposes. Ongoing contributions are expected annually from ongoing employers. Withdrawal liability payments are contributions paid by employers who have withdrawn from the plan and thus, at some point, will stop contributing. Separating withdrawal payments from contributions will assist in projections of future ongoing contributions and also will provide information regarding withdrawing employers. • For multiemployer plans in Critical or Critical and Declining status (i.e., where Code C (Critical Status) or Code D (Critical and Declining Status) is entered on Line 4b), the current Schedule MB instructions require that plans report the year a troubled multiemployer plan is projected to become insolvent or emerge from troubled status on Line 4f. However, there is no requirement to provide supporting documentation for these projections. PBGC is proposing that basic supporting documentation be included as an attachment to Line 4f. Such plans would be required to report in the attachment: Æ Year-by-year cash flow projections for the period ending with whichever is applicable: The year the plan is PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43799 projected to emerge from Critical or Critical and Declining Status or the year the plan is projected to become insolvent, and Æ A summary of the assumptions underlying these projections. PBGC is proposing the addition of this information to enable PBGC to better project the impact on participants and PBGC’s insurance system. With regard to the Schedule SB instructions, PBGC is proposing to change the instructions related to an attachment that is currently required of plans for which the IRS has granted permission to use a substitute mortality table. The current instructions for Schedule SB, item 23, describe the information that is to be included in the attachment. Those instructions reflect the current IRS regulation on the use of substitute mortality tables, 26 CFR 1.430(h)(3)–2. The proposed changes to the Schedule SB are based on amendments to the IRS mortality table regulations that are proposed to become effective on 1/1/2018. If the regulations are not effective on 1/1/2018, then the proposed changes to the Schedule SB will be deleted from the final Form 5500 instructions. PBGC is proposing to require plans to report additional information (consistent with the amended regulation) as part of the item 23 attachment. The addition of information will allow PBGC to reconstruct the substitute table for which the plan has sought IRS approval. This will enable PBGC to better predict future funding requirements and the impact on participants and the insurance system. It is anticipated that the information requested by the proposed changes described above will be available to the plan and will merely require that the plan insert information it already has into the attachments described. PBGC estimates that it will receive approximately 23,700 Form 5500 and Form 5500–SF filings per year under this collection of information. PBGC further estimates that the total annual burden of this collection of information will be 1,300 hours and $1,613,000. PBGC is soliciting public comments to— • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodologies and assumptions used; E:\FR\FM\19SEN1.SGM 19SEN1 43800 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 180 / Tuesday, September 19, 2017 / Notices • enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Annual reporting to the Internal Revenue 
Service (IRS), the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA), 
and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) is required by law 
for most employee benefit plans. For example, section 4065 of the 
Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 requires annual 
reporting to PBGC for pension plans covered by title IV of ERISA. To 
accommodate these filing requirements, PBGC, IRS, and EBSA have jointly 
promulgated the Form 5500 Series, which includes the Form 5500 Annual 
Return/Report of Employee Benefit Plan and the Form 5500-SF Short Form 
Annual Return/Report of Small Employee Benefit Plan.
    The collection of information has been approved by OMB under 
control number 1212-0057 through August 31, 2020. PBGC intends to 
request that OMB extend its approval, with modifications, for three 
years. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not 
required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays 
a currently valid OMB control number.
    PBGC is proposing two modifications to the 2017 Schedule MB 
(Multiemployer Defined Benefit Plan Actuarial Information) instructions 
and one modification to the Schedule SB (Single Employer Defined 
Benefit Plan Actuarial Information) instructions. These modifications 
affect multiemployer defined benefit plans and single-employer defined 
benefit plans covered by Title IV of ERISA.
    With regard to the Schedule MB instructions, PBGC is proposing to 
change the instructions to require new attachments in two situations as 
explained below:
     If any of the contributions reported in Line 3 
(Contributions Made to Plan) include amounts owed for withdrawal 
liability, PBGC is proposing to require plan administrators to report 
for each reported contribution (on an attachment to Line 3), the 
aggregate amount of withdrawal liability payments included in such 
contribution. This will enable PBGC to allocate the reported 
contributions between regular contributions and withdrawal liability 
payments and is consistent with intent of Line 3 to provide 
contribution information for projection purposes.
    Ongoing contributions are expected annually from ongoing employers. 
Withdrawal liability payments are contributions paid by employers who 
have withdrawn from the plan and thus, at some point, will stop 
contributing. Separating withdrawal payments from contributions will 
assist in projections of future ongoing contributions and also will 
provide information regarding withdrawing employers.
     For multiemployer plans in Critical or Critical and 
Declining status (i.e., where Code C (Critical Status) or Code D 
(Critical and Declining Status) is entered on Line 4b), the current 
Schedule MB instructions require that plans report the year a troubled 
multiemployer plan is projected to become insolvent or emerge from 
troubled status on Line 4f. However, there is no requirement to provide 
supporting documentation for these projections. PBGC is proposing that 
basic supporting documentation be included as an attachment to Line 4f. 
Such plans would be required to report in the attachment:
    [cir] Year-by-year cash flow projections for the period ending with 
whichever is applicable: The year the plan is projected to emerge from 
Critical or Critical and Declining Status or the year the plan is 
projected to become insolvent, and
    [cir] A summary of the assumptions underlying these projections.
    PBGC is proposing the addition of this information to enable PBGC 
to better project the impact on participants and PBGC's insurance 
system.
    With regard to the Schedule SB instructions, PBGC is proposing to 
change the instructions related to an attachment that is currently 
required of plans for which the IRS has granted permission to use a 
substitute mortality table. The current instructions for Schedule SB, 
item 23, describe the information that is to be included in the 
attachment. Those instructions reflect the current IRS regulation on 
the use of substitute mortality tables, 26 CFR 1.430(h)(3)-2. The 
proposed changes to the Schedule SB are based on amendments to the IRS 
mortality table regulations that are proposed to become effective on 1/
1/2018. If the regulations are not effective on 1/1/2018, then the 
proposed changes to the Schedule SB will be deleted from the final Form 
5500 instructions. PBGC is proposing to require plans to report 
additional information (consistent with the amended regulation) as part 
of the item 23 attachment. The addition of information will allow PBGC 
to reconstruct the substitute table for which the plan has sought IRS 
approval. This will enable PBGC to better predict future funding 
requirements and the impact on participants and the insurance system.
    It is anticipated that the information requested by the proposed 
changes described above will be available to the plan and will merely 
require that the plan insert information it already has into the 
attachments described.
    PBGC estimates that it will receive approximately 23,700 Form 5500 
and Form 5500-SF filings per year under this collection of information. 
PBGC further estimates that the total annual burden of this collection 
of information will be 1,300 hours and $1,613,000.
    PBGC is soliciting public comments to--
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodologies and assumptions used;

[[Page 43800]]

     enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
