II. Background Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted a proposed collection of information to OMB for review entitled, ‘‘Requests to Federally Recognized Indian Tribes for Information.’’ 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 October 7, 2019 (84 FR 53479). 1. The title of the information collection: Requests to Federally Recognized Indian Tribes for Information. 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: On occasion. 6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Federally recognized Indian Tribes. 7. The estimated number of annual responses: 600. 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 40. 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 4,800 (14,400 over the course of the three-year clearance period). 10. Abstract: NRC actions and NRCregulated activities may affect Indian Tribes and their current or ancestral Tribal lands. On January 9, 2017, the NRC published a Tribal Policy Statement (82 FR 2402). In its Tribal Policy Statement, the NRC indicted that it recognizes the Federal Trust Relationship with Indian Tribes and will uphold its Trust Responsibility to Indian Tribes. In its policy statement, the NRC indicated that it recognizes and is committed to a government-togovernment relationship with Indian PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6001 Tribes. The NRC also indicated that it will engage in timely consultations with Indian Tribes. The NRC is requesting OMB approval of a plan for a generic collection of information. The need and practicality of the collection can be evaluated, but the details of the specific individual collections will not be known until a later time. The information collected will include voluntary requests for information that would allow the NRC to more effectively involve Indian Tribes in the NRC’s regulatory activities and to enable the NRC to plan the NRC’s Tribal outreach and consultation activities. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 29th day of January 2020. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. David C. Cullison, NRC Clearance Officer, Office of the Chief Information Officer.

III. NRC Staff Determination of Completion of ITAAC The NRC staff has determined that the specified inspections, tests, and analyses have been successfully completed, and that the specified acceptance criteria are met. The documentation of the NRC staff’s determination is in the ITAAC Closure Verification Evaluation Form (VEF) for each ITAAC. The VEF is a form that represents the NRC staff’s structured process for reviewing ICNs and IPCNs. Each ICN presents a narrative description of how the ITAAC was completed. The NRC’s ICN review process involves a determination on whether, among other things: (1) Each ICN provides sufficient information, including a summary of the methodology used to perform the ITAAC, to demonstrate that the inspections, tests, and analyses have been successfully completed; (2) each ICN provides sufficient information to demonstrate that the acceptance criteria of the ITAAC are met; and (3) any NRC inspections for the ITAAC have been completed and any ITAAC findings associated with that ITAAC have been closed. The NRC’s review process for IPCNs is similar to that for ICNs but focuses on how the licensee addressed the new material information giving rise to the IPCN. The NRC staff’s determination of the successful completion of these ITAAC is based on information available at this time and is subject to the licensee’s ability to maintain the condition that the acceptance criteria are met. If the NRC staff receives new information that suggests the NRC staff’s determination on any of these ITAAC is incorrect, then the NRC staff will determine whether to reopen that ITAAC (including withdrawing the NRC staff’s determination on that ITAAC). The NRC staff’s determination will be used to support a subsequent finding, pursuant to 10 CFR 52.103(g), at the end of construction that all acceptance criteria in the combined license are met. The PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 ITAAC closure process is not finalized for these ITAAC until the NRC makes an affirmative finding under 10 CFR 52.103(g). Any future updates to the status of these ITAAC will be reflected on the NRC’s website at https:// www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/ oversight/itaac.html. This notice fulfills the NRC staff’s obligations under 10 CFR 52.99(e)(1) to publish a notice in the Federal Register of the NRC staff’s determination of the successful completion of inspections, tests, and analyses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Licensee Notification of Completion of ITAAC

    Southern Nuclear Operating Company, Inc. (SNC), Georgia Power 
Company, Oglethorpe Power Corporation, MEAG Power SPVM, LLC., MEAG 
Power SPVJ, LLC., MEAG Power SPVP, LLC., and the City of Dalton, 
Georgia, (hereafter called the licensee) has submitted ITAAC closure 
notifications (ICNs) under section 52.99(c)(1) of title 10 of the Code 
of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), informing the NRC that the licensee 
has successfully performed the required inspections, tests, and 
analyses, and that the acceptance criteria are met for:

VEGP Unit 3 ITAAC

    2.2.03.08c.vi.03 (191), 2.5.04.01 (556), 2.6.09.05b (645), 
3.3.00.02a.ii.e (768), 2.6.03.04j (876), and 2.6.05.03i (630).

VEGP Unit 4 ITAAC

    2.2.03.09a.iii (203), 2.3.05.03c.i (349), 2.3.05.03d.i (351), 
2.6.09.05b (645), 3.3.00.06b (788), and 2.6.03.04j (876).
    The ITAAC for VEGP Unit 3 are in Appendix C of the VEGP Unit 3 
combined license (ADAMS Accession No. ML14100A106). The ITAAC for VEGP 
Unit 4 are in Appendix C of VEGP Unit 4 combined license (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML14100A135).

II. Licensee ITAAC Post-Closure Notifications (IPCNs)

    Since the last Federal Register notice of the NRC staff's 
determinations of successful completion of inspections, tests, and 
analyses for VEGP Units 3 and 4 (October 15, 2019; 84 FR 55183), the 
NRC staff has not made additional determinations of the successful 
completion of inspections, tests, and analyses based on licensee IPCNs 
submitted under 10 CFR 52.99(c)(2).

III. NRC Staff Determination of Completion of ITAAC

    The NRC staff has determined that the specified inspections, tests, 
and analyses have been successfully completed, and that the specified 
acceptance criteria are met. The documentation of the NRC staff's 
determination is in the ITAAC Closure Verification Evaluation Form 
(VEF) for each ITAAC. The VEF is a form that represents the NRC staff's 
structured process for reviewing ICNs and IPCNs.
    Each ICN presents a narrative description of how the ITAAC was 
completed. The NRC's ICN review process involves a determination on 
whether, among other things: (1) Each ICN provides sufficient 
information, including a summary of the methodology used to perform the 
ITAAC, to demonstrate that the inspections, tests, and analyses have 
been successfully completed; (2) each ICN provides sufficient 
information to demonstrate that the acceptance criteria of the ITAAC 
are met; and (3) any NRC inspections for the ITAAC have been completed 
and any ITAAC findings associated with that ITAAC have been closed. The 
NRC's review process for IPCNs is similar to that for ICNs but focuses 
on how the licensee addressed the new material information giving rise 
to the IPCN.
    The NRC staff's determination of the successful completion of these 
ITAAC is based on information available at this time and is subject to 
the licensee's ability to maintain the condition that the acceptance 
criteria are met. If the NRC staff receives new information that 
suggests the NRC staff's determination on any of these ITAAC is 
incorrect, then the NRC staff will determine whether to reopen that 
ITAAC (including withdrawing the NRC staff's determination on that 
ITAAC). The NRC staff's determination will be used to support a 
subsequent finding, pursuant to 10 CFR 52.103(g), at the end of 
construction that all acceptance criteria in the combined license are 
met. The ITAAC closure process is not finalized for these ITAAC until 
the NRC makes an affirmative finding under 10 CFR 52.103(g). Any future 
updates to the status of these ITAAC will be reflected on the NRC's 
website at https://www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/oversight/itaac.html.
    This notice fulfills the NRC staff's obligations under 10 CFR 
52.99(e)(1) to publish a notice in the Federal Register of the NRC 
staff's determination of the successful completion of inspections, 
tests, and analyses.
