The amendment documents for COLs NPF–91 and NPF–92 are available in ADAMS under Accession Nos. ML17263A077 and ML17263A075, respectively. A summary of the amendment documents is provided in Section III of this document. II. Exemption Reproduced below is the exemption document issued to VEGP Units 3 and Unit 4. It makes reference to the combined safety evaluation that provides the reasoning for the findings made by the NRC (and listed under Item 1) in order to grant the exemption: 1. In a letter dated April 21, 2017, revised on August 15, 2017, and supplemented by letter dated September 18, 2017, the licensee requested from the Commission an exemption from the provisions of 10 CFR part 52, appendix D, section III.B, as part of license amendment request 17–012, ‘‘Addition of Steam Generator System (SGS) Thermal Relief Valves.’’ For the reasons set forth in Section 3.1, ‘‘Evaluation of Exemption,’’ of the NRC staff’s Safety Evaluation, which can be found in ADAMS under Accession No. ML17263A074, the Commission finds that: A. The exemption is authorized by law; B. the exemption presents no undue risk to public health and safety; C. the exemption is consistent with the common defense and security; D. special circumstances are present in that the application of the rule in this circumstance is not necessary to serve the underlying purpose of the rule; E. the special circumstances outweigh any decrease in safety that may result from the reduction in standardization caused by the exemption; and F. the exemption will not result in a significant decrease in the level of safety otherwise provided by the design. 2. Accordingly, the licensee is granted an exemption from the certified DCD Tier 1 information, with corresponding changes to Appendix C of the Facility Combined Licenses as described in the licensee’s request dated April 21, 2017, revised on August 15, 2017 and supplemented by letter dated September 18, 2017. This exemption is related to, and necessary for, the granting of License Amendment Nos. 99 and 98, which is being issued concurrently with this exemption. 3. As explained in Section 5.0, ‘‘Environmental Consideration,’’ of the NRC staff’s Safety Evaluation (ADAMS Accession No. ML17263A074), these exemptions meets the eligibility criteria VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:01 Feb 14, 2018 Jkt 244001 for categorical exclusion set forth in 10 CFR 51.22(c)(9). Therefore, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(b), no environmental impact statement or environmental assessment needs to be prepared in connection with the issuance of the exemption. 4. These exemptions are effective as of the date of its issuance. III. License Amendment Request By letter dated April 21, 2017, revised on August 15, 2017 and supplemented by letter dated September 18, 2017, the licensee requested that the NRC amend the COLs for VEGP, Units 3 and 4, COLs NPF–91 and NPF–92. The proposed amendment is described in Section I of this Federal Register notice. The Commission has determined for these amendments that the application complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s rules and regulations. The Commission has made appropriate findings as required by the Act and the Commission’s rules and regulations in 10 CFR chapter I, which are set forth in the license amendment. A notice of consideration of issuance of amendment to facility operating license or combined license, as applicable, proposed no significant hazards consideration determination, and opportunity for a hearing in connection with these actions, was published in the Federal Register on September 12, 2017 (82 FR 42844). No comments were received during the 30day comment period. The Commission has determined that these amendments satisfy the criteria for categorical exclusion in accordance with 10 CFR 51.22. Therefore, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(b), no environmental impact statement or environmental assessment need be prepared for these amendments. IV. Conclusion Using the reasons set forth in the combined safety evaluation, the staff granted the exemption and issued the amendment that the licensee requested on April 21, 2017, revised on August 15, 2017, and supplemented by letter on September 18, 2017. The exemptions and amendments were issued on November 17, 2017, as part of a combined package to the licensee (ADAMS Accession No. ML17263A070).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Establishment of Three New Systems of Records After a comprehensive, collaborative review with system managers, or their designees, in the Division of Corporation Finance, Division of Investment Management, and the Division of Trading and Markets, relevant records related to SEC filings were consolidated into three disparate systems of records. The consolidations provide greater transparency into the records of individuals maintained by these Divisions. The consolidations account for where the collections of information are similar, the purposes for the collections are compatible, and the records maintained within the systems PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 are under common administrative, physical, and technical controls. Each of the new SORNs resulting from the consolidations are described in detail below: 1. SEC–68: SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance Records New SEC–68 would consolidate SEC filing records that are collected, maintained and used to assist the Division of Corporation Finance in executing the Commission’s responsibility to oversee corporate disclosure of company filings, reports, and other disclosure records filed pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and other Federal securities laws. The records are used to monitor and enhance compliance with disclosure regulations that corporations are required to comply with when stock is initially sold and then on a continuing and periodic basis. These records will be consolidated into a new SORN titled, SEC–68: SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance Records. The filings and forms collected are similar in purpose and are used to provide investors with material information about a company’s financial condition and business practices so individuals can make informed investment decisions. This consolidation will form one comprehensive system of records that will cover individuals associated with filings and forms submitted to the SEC on behalf of corporations, including but not limited to: Registration statements for initial public offerings and other offerings; proposed sale of securities; prospectus, and proxy solicitation materials; financial statements; beneficial ownership documents; acquisition documents; tender offers; insider trading transaction records; quarterly and annual reports; correspondence; internal staff memoranda; and information relating to the business activities and transactions of public companies and their associated persons. These records are currently covered under one or more legacy SORNs that are outdated and do not accurately reflect changes in technology and agency procedures. These legacy SORNs are proposed for rescindment in a companion Federal Register Notice. 2. SEC–69: SEC’s Division of Investment Management Records New SEC–69 would consolidate SEC filing records that are collected, maintained and used to assist the Division of Investment Management in executing the Commission’s responsibility for investor protection E:\FR\FM\15FEN1.SGM 15FEN1

Extension:
    Rule 6e-2 and Form N-6EI-1, SEC File No. 270-177, OMB Control 
No. 3235-0177.

    Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange 
Commission (the ``Commission'') is soliciting comments on the 
collection of information summarized below. The Commission plans to 
submit this existing collection of information to the Office of 
Management and Budget for extension and approval.
    Rule 6e-2 (17 CFR 270.6e-2) under the Investment Company Act of 
1940 (``Act'') (15 U.S.C. 80a) is an exemptive rule that provides 
separate accounts formed by life insurance companies to fund certain 
variable life insurance products, exemptions from certain provisions of 
the Act, subject to conditions set forth in the rule.
    Rule 6e-2 provides a separate account with an exemption from the 
registration provisions of section 8(a) of the Act if the account files 
with the Commission Form N-6EI-1, a notification of claim of exemption.
    The rule also exempts a separate account from a number of other 
sections of the Act, provided that the separate account makes certain 
disclosure in its registration statements (in the case of those 
separate accounts that elect to register), reports to contractholders, 
proxy solicitations, and submissions to state regulatory authorities, 
as prescribed by the rule.
    Since 2008, there have been no filings of Form N-6EI-1 by separate 
accounts. Therefore, there has been no cost or burden to the industry 
since that time. The Commission requests authorization to maintain an 
inventory of one burden hour for administrative purposes.

collection of information is necessary for the proper
