The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a revision to its policy statement on reporting abnormal occurrences (AOs) to Congress. The revised policy statement adds more specific criteria for determining those incidents and events that the Commission considers significant from the standpoint of public health or safety for reporting to Congress and the public, and makes the policy consistent with recent changes to NRC regulations. The revised AO criteria contain more discrete reporting thresholds, making them easier to implement and ensuring more consistent reporting.

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, 
``Collection of Operator Simulator Training Data.'' 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 June 27, 2017 (82 FR 29119).
    1. The title of the information collection: ``Collection of 
Operator Simulator Training Data.''
    2. OMB approval number: xxxx-xxxx.
    3. Type of submission: Voluntary.
    4. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: Six per year.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: All holders of, or 
applicants for, a power reactor operating license under part 50 of 
title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ``Domestic 
Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,'' except those that 
have certified that they have permanently ceased operations and have 
permanently removed all fuel from the reactor vessel.
    All holders of, or applicants for, a power reactor combined license 
under 10 CFR part 52, ``Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for 
Nuclear Power Plants.''
    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 95.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 15.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
comply with the information collection requirement or request: 411 
hours.
    10. Abstract: This information collection request is to the holders 
of, or applicants for, a power reactor operating license under 10 CFR 
part 50, ``Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization 
Facilities,'' except those that have certified that they have 
permanently ceased operations and have permanently removed all fuel 
from the reactor vessel, and the holders of, or applicants for, a power 
reactor combined license under 10 CFR part 52, ``Licenses, 
Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants.''
    This information collection is for the specified licensees to use 
the NRC-developed Scenario Authoring, Characterization and Debriefing

NRC welcomes more licensees to partner with the NRC to use the 
software. The licensees' participation in the information collection is 
voluntary. In the partnership, the NRC provides the SACADA software 
license, training, and technical support to the participating 
licensees, and the participating licensees grant NRC access to analyze 
the data to improve the NRC's HRA techniques. An agreement will be
