Introduction The Agenda is a compilation of all rulemaking activities on which an agency has recently completed action or has proposed or is considering action. The Agenda reports rulemaking activities in three major categories: Completed, active, and long-term. Completed rulemaking activities are those that were completed since publication of an agency’s last Agenda; active rulemaking activities are those for which an agency currently plans to have an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, a Proposed Rule, or a Final Rule issued within the next 12 months; and long-term rulemaking activities are rulemaking activities under development but for which an agency does not expect to have a regulatory action within the 12 months after publication of the current edition of the Unified Agenda. We assign a ‘‘Regulation Identifier Number’’ (RIN) to a rulemaking activity when our Commission initiates a rulemaking and approves a rulemaking plan, or when the NRC staff begins work on a Commission-delegated rulemaking that does not require a rulemaking plan. The Office of Management and Budget uses this number to track all relevant documents throughout the entire ‘‘lifecycle’’ of a particular rulemaking activity. We report all rulemaking activities in the Agenda that have been assigned a RIN and meet the definition for a completed, an active, or a longterm rulemaking activity. The information contained in this Agenda is updated to reflect any action that has occurred on a rulemaking activity since publication of our last Agenda on January 12, 2018 (83 FR 2018). Specifically, the information in this Agenda has been updated through February 23, 2018. The NRC provides additional information on planned E:\FR\FM\11JNP26.SGM 11JNP26 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 112 / Monday, June 11, 2018 / Unified Agenda rulemaking and petition for rulemaking activities, including priority and schedule, on our website at https:// www.nrc.gov/about-nrc/regulatory/ rulemaking/rules-petitions.html#cprlist. The date for the next scheduled action under the heading ‘‘Timetable’’ is the date the next regulatory action for the rulemaking activity is scheduled to be published in the Federal Register. The date is considered tentative and is not binding on the Commission or its staff. The Agenda is intended to provide the public early notice and opportunity to participate in our rulemaking process. However, we may consider or act on any rulemaking activity even though it is not included in the Agenda. Section 610 Periodic Reviews Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act Section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) requires agencies to conduct a review within 10 years of promulgation of those regulations that have or will have a significant economic 27277 impact on a substantial number of small entities. We undertake these reviews to decide whether the rules should be unchanged, amended, or withdrawn. At this time, we do not have any rules that have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities; therefore, we have not included any RFA Section 610 periodic reviews in this edition of the Agenda. A complete listing of our regulations that impact small entities and related Small Entity Compliance Guides are available from the NRC’s website at http:// www.nrc.gov/about-nrc/regulatory/ rulemaking/flexibility-act/smallentities.html. rules that the NRC reports in its Agenda and recommended that the NRC refine its prioritization process for rulemaking activities to take into account the cost and burden imposed by a proposed regulation. The NRC actively seeks to improve its rulemaking process and annually reviews its methodology for prioritizing rulemaking activities. The NRC will align its prioritization process with the ‘‘NRC Strategic Plan: Fiscal Years 2018– 2022’’ (February 2018; ADAMS Accession No. ML18032A561) and will consider the Nuclear Energy Institute’s suggestions upon the NRC’s next review of the prioritization methodology. Public Comments Received on NRC Unified Agenda As part of the most recent publication of the NRC’s Agenda in January 2018, the NRC requested public comment on its rulemaking activities. In response, the Nuclear Energy Institute commented on the number and average age of the Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 23rd day of February 2018. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Introduction

    The Agenda is a compilation of all rulemaking activities on which 
an agency has recently completed action or has proposed or is 
considering action. The Agenda reports rulemaking activities in three 
major categories: Completed, active, and long-term. Completed 
rulemaking activities are those that were completed since publication 
of an agency's last Agenda; active rulemaking activities are those for 
which an agency currently plans to have an Advance Notice of Proposed 
Rulemaking, a Proposed Rule, or a Final Rule issued within the next 12 
months; and long-term rulemaking activities are rulemaking activities 
under development but for which an agency does not expect to have a 
regulatory action within the 12 months after publication of the current 
edition of the Unified Agenda.
    We assign a ``Regulation Identifier Number'' (RIN) to a rulemaking 
activity when our Commission initiates a rulemaking and approves a 
rulemaking plan, or when the NRC staff begins work on a Commission-
delegated rulemaking that does not require a rulemaking plan. The 
Office of Management and Budget uses this number to track all relevant 
documents throughout the entire ``lifecycle'' of a particular 
rulemaking activity. We report all rulemaking activities in the Agenda 
that have been assigned a RIN and meet the definition for a completed, 
an active, or a long-term rulemaking activity.
    The information contained in this Agenda is updated to reflect any 
action that has occurred on a rulemaking activity since publication of 
our last Agenda on January 12, 2018 (83 FR 2018). Specifically, the 
information in this Agenda has been updated through February 23, 2018. 
The NRC provides additional information on planned

[[Page 27277]]

rulemaking and petition for rulemaking activities, including priority 
and schedule, on our website at https://www.nrc.gov/about-nrc/regulatory/rulemaking/rules-petitions.html#cprlist.
    The date for the next scheduled action under the heading 
``Timetable'' is the date the next regulatory action for the rulemaking 
activity is scheduled to be published in the Federal Register. The date 
is considered tentative and is not binding on the Commission or its 
staff. The Agenda is intended to provide the public early notice and 
opportunity to participate in our rulemaking process. However, we may 
consider or act on any rulemaking activity even though it is not 
included in the Agenda.

Section 610 Periodic Reviews Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) requires 
agencies to conduct a review within 10 years of promulgation of those 
regulations that have or will have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities. We undertake these reviews to 
decide whether the rules should be unchanged, amended, or withdrawn. At 
this time, we do not have any rules that have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities; therefore, we have 
not included any RFA Section 610 periodic reviews in this edition of 
the Agenda. A complete listing of our regulations that impact small 
entities and related Small Entity Compliance Guides are available from 
the NRC's website at http://www.nrc.gov/about-nrc/regulatory/rulemaking/flexibility-act/small-entities.html.

Public Comments Received on NRC Unified Agenda

    As part of the most recent publication of the NRC's Agenda in 
January 2018, the NRC requested public comment on its rulemaking 
activities. In response, the Nuclear Energy Institute commented on the 
number and average age of the rules that the NRC reports in its Agenda 
and recommended that the NRC refine its prioritization process for 
rulemaking activities to take into account the cost and burden imposed 
by a proposed regulation.
    The NRC actively seeks to improve its rulemaking process and 
annually reviews its methodology for prioritizing rulemaking 
activities. The NRC will align its prioritization process with the 
``NRC Strategic Plan: Fiscal Years 2018-2022'' (February 2018; ADAMS 
Accession No. ML18032A561) and will consider the Nuclear Energy 
Institute's suggestions upon the NRC's next review of the 
prioritization methodology.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 23rd day of February 2018.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

    Abstract: This rule would implement the Omnibus Budget 
Reconciliation Act of 1990 (OBRA-90), as amended, which requires the 
Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to recover approximately 90 percent 
of its budget authority in a given fiscal year, less the amounts 
appropriated from the Waste Incidental to Reprocessing, generic 
homeland security activities, and Inspector General services for the 
Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board, through fees assessed to 
licensees. This rulemaking would amend the Commission's fee schedules 
for licensing, inspection, and annual fees charged to its applicants 
and licensees. The licensing and inspection fees are established under 
10 CFR part 170 and recover the NRC's cost of providing services to 
identifiable applicants and licensees. Examples of services provided by 
the NRC for which 10 CFR part 170 fees are assessed include license 
application reviews, license renewals, license amendment reviews, and 
inspections. The annual fees established under 10 CFR part 171 recover 
budgeted costs for generic (e.g., research and rulemaking) and other 
regulatory activities not recovered under 10 CFR part 170 fees.
