The NRC reserves the right to revoke digital certificates at any time. jbell on DSK30RV082PROD with NOTICES V. MSDH General Responsibilities A. MSDH, through its DRH, will, in cooperation with the NRC, establish a capability to receive ERDS data. To this end, MSDH will provide the necessary computer hardware and commercially licensed software required for ERDS data transfer to users. B. MSDH will provide the NRC with an initial, and periodically updated, list of designated persons serving as holders of ERDS digital certificates. C. MSDH will use ERDS only to access data, at the Alert level or higher, from nuclear power plants for which all or a portion of the 10-mile EPZ falls within the boundaries of the State of Mississippi. D. For the purpose of minimizing the impact on plant operators, the State of Mississippi will seek clarification of ERDS data through the NRC. VI. Implementation A. MSDH and the NRC agree to work in concert to assure that the following communications and information exchange protocol regarding ERDS are followed: a. MSDH and the NRC agree in good faith to make available to each other information within the intent and scope of this MOU. b. The NRC and MSDH agree to meet as necessary to exchange information on matters of common concern pertinent to this MOU. Unless otherwise agreed, such meetings will be held in the NRC Headquarters Operations Center. The affected utilities will be kept informed of pertinent information covered by this MOU. c. The NRC will protect sensitive information to the extent permitted by the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552, Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 2.390, and all other applicable authority. MSDH and its DRH will protect sensitive information to the extent permitted by the Mississippi Freedom of Information Act Mississippi Code Ann. § 25–61, and all other applicable authority. d. The NRC will conduct periodic tests of licensee ERDS data links. The NRC will provide a copy of the test schedule to the MSDH through its DRH. The DRH may test its ability to access ERDS data during these scheduled tests, or may schedule independent tests of the State link with the NRC. e. The NRC will provide MSDH with access to ERDS for emergency exercises at nuclear power plants that have implemented an ERDS interface, for VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:27 Mar 19, 2019 Jkt 247001 which any portion of a plant’s 10-mile EPZ lies within the State of Mississippi, and that are capable of transmitting exercise data to ERDS. For exercises in which the NRC is not participating, the MSDH, through its DRH, will coordinate with the NRC in advance to ensure ERDS availability. The NRC reserves the right to preempt ERDS use for any exercise in progress in the event of an actual event at any licensed nuclear power plant. A. The principal senior management contacts for this MOU will be the Director, Division of Preparedness and Response (DPR), Office of Nuclear Security and Incident Response (NSIR) for the NRC, and the Director, Division of Radiological Health, for MSDH. These individuals may designate appropriate staff representatives for the purpose of administering this MOU. B. Identification of these contacts is not intended to restrict communication between the NRC and MSDH staff members, in particular those within the DRH, on technical and other day-to-day activities. VIII. Resolution of Disagreements A. If disagreements arise about matters within the scope of this MOU, the NRC and MSDH will work together to resolve these differences. B. Differences between MSDH and the NRC staff over issues arising out of this MOU will, if they cannot be resolved in accordance with Section VIII.A, be resolved by the Director of the NRC’s DPR, NSIR. C. Differences which cannot be resolved in accordance with Sections VIII.A and VIII.B will be reviewed and resolved by the Director of NRC’s NSIR. D. The NRC’s General Counsel has the final authority to provide legal interpretation of the Commission’s regulations. IX. Effective Date This MOU will take effect after it has been signed by both parties. X. Duration This MOU will be subject to periodic reviews and may be amended or modified upon written agreement by both parties, and may be terminated upon 30 days written notice by either party. XI.

II. Background

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
Chapter 35), the NRC is requesting public comment on its intention to 
request the OMB's approval for the information collection summarized 
below.
    1. The title of the information collection: Survey of NRC materials 
licensees to support rulemaking for NRC's small entity size standards.
    2. OMB approval number: An OMB control number has not yet been 
assigned to this proposed information collection.
    3. Type of submission: New.
    4. The form number, if applicable: Not applicable.
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: Once.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Current materials 
users licensees.
    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 457.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 457.
    9. The estimated number of hours needed annually to comply with the 
information collection requirement or request: 151 hours.
    10. Abstract: The NRC has its own standards for categorizing small 
business size entities that are noted in section 2.810 of title 10 of 
the Code of Federal Regulations, ``NRC size standards.'' The agency's 
standards differ from those used by the Small Business Administration 
(SBA) because it is difficult to align NRC licensees with Small 
Business Administration size standards and the Omnibus Budget 
Reconciliations Act of 1990 requirement for NRC to recover 90 percent 
of the annual budget through fees. Since the agency has not surveyed 
its materials licensees since 1993, the staff will conduct a survey to 
gather financial data to determine if a change to the size standards is 
needed. Without conducting a survey, the NRC staff does not have the 
data needed to determine the impact of shifting from the current 
nuclear industry-specific standards. The results of the analysis will 
be used to provide a recommendation to the Commission that is backed 
with sound empirical data.

III. Specific Requests for Comments

    The NRC is seeking comments that address the following questions:
    1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC 
to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical 
utility?
    2. Is the estimate of the burden of the information collection 
accurate?
    3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of 
the information to be collected?
    4. How can the burden of the information collection on respondents 
be minimized, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology?

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 14th day of March 2019.
    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
