The form number, if applicable: N/ A. 5. How often the collection is required or requested: Six times per year. 6. Who will be required or asked to respond: All holders of, or applicants for, a power reactor operating license VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:54 Sep 10, 2020 Jkt 250001 under part 50 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,’’ except those that have certified that they have permanently ceased operations and have permanently removed all fuel from the reactor vessel. All holders of, or applicants for, a power reactor combined license under 10 CFR part 52, ‘‘Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants.’’ 7. The estimated number of annual responses: 32. 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 5. 9. The estimated number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 148 hours. 10. Abstract: This information collection request is to the holders of, or applicants for, a power reactor operating license under 10 CFR part 50, ‘‘Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,’’ except those that have certified that they have permanently ceased operations and have permanently removed all fuel from the reactor vessel, and the holders of, or applicants for, a power reactor combined license under 10 CFR part 52, ‘‘Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants.’’ This information collection is for the specified licensees to use the NRCdeveloped Scenario Authoring, Characterization and Debriefing Application (SACADA) software for their operator simulator training. The SACADA system was developed to collect licensed operator simulator training data to inform human reliability analysis (HRA) and to facilitate operator simulator training. The SACADA software can be used to author the simulation scenarios, facilitate the post simulation debriefing on crew performance, guide performance analysis, and generate various types of reports. The information entered into the SACADA database can be used to improve simulator training effectiveness and HRA. The South Texas Project Nuclear Operating Company (STPNOC) has used the software for its operator simulator training since 2012 and highly regards the software. The NRC welcomes more licensees to partner with the NRC to use the software. The licensees’ participation in the information collection is voluntary. In the partnership, the NRC provides the SACADA software license, training, and technical support to the participating licensees, and the participating licensees grant NRC access to analyze the data to improve the NRC’s HRA PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 techniques. An agreement will be developed to specify the details. To participate in the information collection, the licensee will notify the NRC contact that it is interested in evaluating the software. Then the NRC will provide additional information including an onsite briefing. If the licensee thinks the SACADA software could be beneficial, the NRC will provide a training session, the software license, and technical support for the licensee to pilot the use of the software in its simulator training. After the pilot study, the licensee will decide whether or not to partner with the NRC on the information collection. Either party can terminate the agreement at any time. 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: September 4, 2020.
