Download as PDF 6376 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 12 / Thursday, January 21, 2021 / Notices incorporated a direct reference to RG 1.174, Revision 3, and (3) delineate the difference between temporary CT extensions and permanent CT extensions of TSs or maximum backstop CTs. II. Additional Information The NRC published a notice of the availability of DG–1287 (ADAMS under Accession No. ML19206A489), in the Federal Register on February 19, 2020 (85 FR 9484) for a 60-day public comment period. The public comment period closed on April 20, 2020, and the NRC received two comment documents. Public comments on DG–1287 and the staff responses to the public comments are available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML20191A231. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES II. Congressional Review Act This RG is a rule as defined in the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801–808). However, the Office of Management and Budget has not found it to be a major rule as defined in the Congressional Review Act. III. Backfitting, Forward Fitting, and Issue Finality RG 1.177, Revision 2 provides updated guidance for power reactor applicants and licensees regarding the use of the defense-in-depth philosophy with other recently updated guidance and would make other conforming changes to the use of PRA and associated terminology. Issuance of this RG does not constitute backfitting or forward fitting or affect issue finality as further discussed in this notice. Current or future applicants are not, with limited exceptions not applicable here, within the scope of the backfitting and issue finality regulations and forward fitting policy. Applicants are not, with certain exceptions, covered by either the backfit rule or any issue finality provisions under part 52 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). This is because neither the backfit rule nor the issue finality provisions under 10 CFR part 52, with certain exclusions further discussed, were intended to apply to every NRC action which substantially changes the expectations of current and future applicants. The exceptions to the general principle are applicable whenever an applicant references a 10 CFR part 52 license (e.g., an early site permit) and/ or NRC regulatory approval (e.g., a design certification rule) with specified issue finality provisions or a construction permit under 10 CFR part 50. The staff does not, at this time, intend to impose the positions VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:44 Jan 19, 2021 Jkt 253001 represented in the RG in a manner that would constitute backfitting or affect the issue finality of a part 52 approval. If, in the future, the staff seeks to impose a position in the RG in a manner that constitutes backfitting or does not provide issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision, then the staff would need to address the backfit rule or the criteria for avoiding issue finality as described in the applicable issue finality provision. The staff does not, at this time, intend to impose the positions represented in the RG in a manner that would constitute forward fitting. If, in the future, the staff seeks to impose a position in the RG in a manner that constitutes forward fitting, then the staff would need to address the forward fitting criteria in Management Directive 8.4, ‘‘Management of Backfitting, Forward Fitting, Issue Finality, and Information Requests’’ (ADAMS Accession No. ML18093B087).

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.

II. Background

    Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted a request for renewal of 
an existing collection of information to the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for review. The information collection is entitled, 
``Collection of Operator Simulator Training Data.'' 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 September 11, 2020, (85 FR 
56277).
    1. The title of the information collection: Collection of Operator 
Simulator Training Data.
    2. OMB approval number: 3150-0234.
    3. Type of submission: Extension.
    4. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: Six per year.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: All holders of, or 
applicants for, a power reactor operating license 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. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
comply with the information collection requirement or request: 148.
    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 NRC developed 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

to author the simulation scenarios, facilitate the post simulation 
debriefing on crew performance, guide performance analysis, and

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 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.
