Information Collection: NRC Online Form, “Request for Alternative to 10 CFR 50.55a(z)(1) and (2)”, 44549-44551 [2020-15942]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 142 / Thursday, July 23, 2020 / Notices instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA’s estimate of the information collection burden is accurate. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes information collection by employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement of the OSH Act or for developing information regarding the causes and prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also requires that OSHA obtain such information with minimum burden upon employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657). Paragraph (e)(3) of the Standard specifies that employers must subject each portable fire extinguisher to an annual maintenance inspection and record the date of the inspection. In addition, this provision requires employers to retain the inspection record for one year after the last entry or for the life of the shell, whichever is less, and to make the record available to OSHA on request. This recordkeeping requirement assures workers and agency compliance officers that portable fire extinguishers located in the workplace will operate normally in case of fire; in addition, this requirement provides evidence to OSHA compliance officers during an inspection that the employer performed the required maintenance checks on the portable fire extinguishers. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES II. Special Issues for Comment OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues: • Whether the proposed information collection requirements are necessary for the proper performance of the agency’s functions, including whether the information is useful; • The accuracy of OSHA’s estimate of the burden (time and costs) of the information collection requirements, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • The quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden on employers who must comply; for example, by using automated or other technological information collection and transmission techniques. III. Proposed Actions OSHA is requesting that OMB extend the approval of the collection of information (paperwork) requirements contained in the Portable Fire Extinguishers Standard (Annual Maintenance Certification Record). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:10 Jul 22, 2020 Jkt 250001 OSHA will retain the current number of burden hours of 293,496 for this Information Collection Request.

II. Background We are required to publish this notice in the Federal Register under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). In compliance with the requirement of section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, we have submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) the following requirements for emergency review. We are requesting an emergency review because the collection of this information is needed before the expiration of the normal time limits under OMB’s regulations under section 1320.13 of title 5 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). We cannot reasonably comply with the normal clearance procedures because an unanticipated event has occurred, as stated in 5 CFR 1320.13(a)(2)(ii). This information collection only addresses the incremental burden change to an existing clearance and not the total burden for the clearance. 1.

II. Background

    We are required to publish this notice in the Federal Register 
under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
Chapter 35). In compliance with the requirement of section 
3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, we have submitted 
to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) the following requirements 
for emergency review. We are requesting an emergency review because the 
collection of this information is needed before the expiration of the 
normal time limits under OMB's regulations under section 1320.13 of 
title 5 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). We cannot reasonably 
comply with the normal clearance procedures because an unanticipated 
event has occurred, as stated in 5 CFR 1320.13(a)(2)(ii). This 
information collection only addresses the incremental burden change to 
an existing clearance and not the total burden for the clearance.
    1. The title of the information collection: ``NRC Online Form, 
`Request for Alternative to 10 CFR 50.55a(z)(1) and (2).' ''
    2. OMB approval number: 3150-XXXX.
    3. Type of submission: New.
    4. The form number, if applicable: There is no form number for the 
online submission form.
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: On Occasion.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: All holders of, and 
certain applicants for, nuclear power plant construction permits and 
operating licenses under the provisions of 10 CFR part 50, ``Domestic 
Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities'' who use 
alternatives to the requirements of 10 CFR 50.55a paragraphs (b) 
through (h) when authorized by the NRC have the option of using the 
online form.
    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 120.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 120.
    9. The estimated number of hours needed annually to comply with the 
information collection requirement or request: 240.
    10. Abstract: The NRC requested an emergency review of this 
information collection in order to obtain approval to use the form for 
a period of 6 months. The purpose of this information collection is to 
introduce the optional online form for COVID-19 related Requests for 
Alternatives that simplifies and reduces the burden of filing of 
requests for alternatives described in the following paragraphs. Under 
the existing collection under OMB Control No. 3150-0011, licensees are 
already able to request alternatives. This information collection only 
addresses the incremental burden change to this existing clearance due 
to the form and not the total burden for the clearance.
    10 CFR 50.55a incorporates by reference Division 1 rules of Section 
III, ``Rules for Construction of Nuclear Power Plant Components,'' and 
Section XI, ``Rules for Inservice Inspection of Nuclear Power Plant 
Components,'' of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) 
Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (B&PV Code); and the rules of the ASME 
``Code for Operation and Maintenance of Nuclear Power Plants'' (OM 
Code). These rules of the ASME B&PV and OM Codes set forth the 
requirements to which nuclear power plant components are designed, 
constructed, tested, repaired, and inspected. 10 CFR 50.55a(z) allows 
applicants to use alternatives to the requirements of 10 CFR 50.55a 
paragraphs (b) through (h) when authorized by the NRC. To facilitate 
licensees' requests for alternatives to the requirements in the above 
regulations, the NRC is providing an optional online form to submit the 
required information for a specific alternative request under 10 CFR 
50.55a(z).

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

    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?
