The estimated number of annual responses: 624 (1,872 over the course of the three-year clearance period). 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 39. 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 4,992 (14,976 over the course of the three-year clearance period).

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 Agreement States will be asked on a one-time or as needed basis to respond to a specific incident, to gather information on licensing and inspection practices or other technical information. The results of such information requests, which are authorized under Section 274(b) of the Atomic Energy Act, will be utilized on part by the NRC in preparing responses to Congressional inquiries.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    Regulatory guides may be withdrawn by the NRC when their guidance 
no longer provides useful information or is superseded by technological 
innovations, congressional actions, or other events. The NRC is 
withdrawing RG 1.77 because its guidance has been incorporated into RG 
1.236, ``Pressurized-Water Reactor Control Rod Ejection and Boiling-
Water Reactor Control Rod Drop Accidents'' (ADAMS Accession No. 
ML20055F490). The basis for withdrawal is found in ADAMS under 
Accession No. ML20084N202.

II. Further Information

    The withdrawal of RG 1.77 does not alter any prior or existing NRC 
licensing approval or the acceptability of licensee commitments to this 
RG. Although RG 1.77 is withdrawn, current licensees may continue to 
use it, and withdrawal does not affect any existing licenses or 
agreements. However, after the withdrawal of RG 1.77, licensees should 
use RG 1.236 in future requests or applications for NRC licensing 
actions related to the guidance in RG 1.77.
