ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: EIA submitted an information collection request for extension as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The information collection requests a three-year extension with no changes of Form NWPA–830G, ‘‘Standard Contract for Disposal of Spent Nuclear Fuel and/or High-Level Radioactive Waste,’’ Appendix G, under OMB Control Number 1901–0260. Form NWPA–830G, ‘‘Appendix G—Standard Remittance Advice for Payment of Fees’’ (including Annex A to Appendix G), which is part of the Standard Contract collects information concerning a company’s quarterly payments into the Nuclear Waste Fund of ongoing fees for spent nuclear fuel disposal.
