A medical event, as defined in § 35.3045, which involves: (a) A dose or dosage that is at least 50 percent greater than that prescribed, or (b) A prescribed dose or dosage that: (i) Uses the wrong radiopharmaceutical or unsealed byproduct material; or (ii) Is delivered by the wrong route of administration; or (iii) Is delivered to the wrong treatment site; or (iv) Is delivered by the wrong treatment mode; or (v) Is from a leaking source or sources; or (vi) Is delivered to the wrong individual or human research subject. Appendix B: Other Events of Interest sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES This appendix discusses other events of interest that do not meet the criteria for abnormal occurrences (AOs) in Appendix A to this policy statement. The Commission may determine that events other than AOs may be of interest to Congress and the public and should be included in an appendix to the AO report as ‘‘Other Events of Interest.’’ Such events may include, but are not necessarily limited to, events that do not meet the AO 15 High-consequence events for facilities licensed under 10 CFR part 70, ‘‘Domestic licensing of special nuclear material,’’ are those that could seriously harm the worker or a member of the public in accordance with § 70.61, ‘‘Performance requirements.’’ The integrated safety analysis conducted and maintained by the licensee or applicant of 10 CFR part 70 fuel cycle facilities identifies such hazards and the safety controls (§ 70.62(c)) applied to meet the performance requirements in accordance with § 70.61(b) through (d). Fuel cycle facilities licensed under 10 CFR part 40, ‘‘Domestic licensing of source material,’’ or certified under 10 CFR part 76, ‘‘Certification of gaseous diffusion plants,’’ have licensing basis documents that describe facility specific hazards, consequences, and those controls used to prevent or mitigate the consequences of such accidents. For these facilities, a high-consequence event would be a release that has the potential to cause acute radiological or chemical exposures to a worker or a member of the public similar to that defined in Appendix A to Chapter 3, Section A.2, of NUREG 1520, Revision 2, ‘‘Standard Review Plan for Fuel Cycle Facilities License Applications—Final Report,’’ issued June 2015, under ‘‘Consequence Category 3 (High Consequences)’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML15176A258). 16 Criteria III.A.2, III.A.3, and III.A.4 also apply to medical licensees.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under section 4041 of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, a single-employer pension plan may terminate voluntarily only if it satisfies the requirements for either a standard or a distress termination. Pursuant to ERISA section 4041(b), for standard terminations, and section 4041(c), for distress terminations, and PBGC’s termination regulation (29 CFR part 4041), a plan administrator wishing to terminate a plan is required to submit specified information to PBGC in support of the proposed termination and to provide specified information regarding the proposed termination to third parties (participants, beneficiaries, alternate payees, and employee organizations). In the case of a plan with participants or beneficiaries who cannot be located when their benefits are to be distributed, the plan administrator is subject to the requirements of ERISA section 4050 and PBGC’s regulation on missing participants (29 CFR part 4050). These regulations may be found on PBGC’s Web site at http:// www.pbgc.gov/res/laws-andregulations/code-of-federalregulations.html. The collection of information under these regulations and the implementing forms and instructions has been approved by OMB under control number 1212–0036 (expires November 30, 2017). PBGC is requesting that OMB extend its approval for three years, with modifications. 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 to provide that the plan administrator of a plan terminating in a standard termination, or a distress termination that closes out in the private sector, may submit termination forms electronically (scanned and emailed or faxed), rather than by mail or E:\FR\FM\02OCN1.SGM 02OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 189 / Monday, October 2, 2017 / Notices sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES personal delivery only. PBGC is proposing this new submission provision to increase the ease of submission for plan administrators. In addition, PBGC is proposing to include an opportunity for plan sponsors to contact PBGC for a pre-filing consultation to discuss the filing process and ensure the filing of a distress termination is appropriate given the sponsor’s specific circumstances. This consultation will assist PBGC and the plan sponsor in exploring whether a waiver of one or more filing obligations is appropriate, identifying potential issues preventing a distress termination of a particular plan, and may indicate that commencement of an agency-initiated termination of the pension plan is warranted. This consultation will be voluntary and will result in little or no added burden on the plan sponsor. PBGC estimates that 1,276 plan administrators will be subject to the collection of information requirements in PBGC’s regulations on termination and missing participants and implementing forms and instructions each year, and that the total annual burden of complying with these requirements will be 1,560 hours and $1,350,400. PBGC is soliciting public comments to— • Evaluate whether the 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 collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • 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 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: Under section 4041 of the Employee 
Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, a single-employer 
pension plan may terminate voluntarily only if it satisfies the 
requirements for either a standard or a distress termination. Pursuant 
to ERISA section 4041(b), for standard terminations, and section 
4041(c), for distress terminations, and PBGC's termination regulation 
(29 CFR part 4041), a plan administrator wishing to terminate a plan is 
required to submit specified information to PBGC in support of the 
proposed termination and to provide specified information regarding the 
proposed termination to third parties (participants, beneficiaries, 
alternate payees, and employee organizations). In the case of a plan 
with participants or beneficiaries who cannot be located when their 
benefits are to be distributed, the plan administrator is subject to 
the requirements of ERISA section 4050 and PBGC's regulation on missing 
participants (29 CFR part 4050). These regulations may be found on 
PBGC's Web site at http://www.pbgc.gov/res/laws-and-regulations/code-of-federal-regulations.html.
    The collection of information under these regulations and the 
implementing forms and instructions has been approved by OMB under 
control number 1212-0036 (expires November 30, 2017). PBGC is 
requesting that OMB extend its approval for three years, with

to increase the ease of submission for plan administrators.
    In addition, PBGC is proposing to include an opportunity for plan 
sponsors to contact PBGC for a pre-filing consultation to discuss the 
filing process and ensure the filing of a distress termination is 
appropriate given the sponsor's specific circumstances. This 
consultation will assist PBGC and the plan sponsor in exploring whether

potential issues preventing a distress termination of a particular 
plan, and may indicate that commencement of an agency-initiated 
termination of the pension plan is warranted. This consultation will be 
voluntary and will result in little or no added burden on the plan 
sponsor.
    PBGC estimates that 1,276 plan administrators will be subject to 
the collection of information requirements in PBGC's regulations on 
termination and missing participants and implementing forms and 
instructions each year, and that the total annual burden of complying 
with these requirements will be 1,560 hours and $1,350,400.
    PBGC is soliciting public comments to--
     Evaluate whether the 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 collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
     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 the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic
