Guidance for Changes During Construction for New Nuclear Power Plants Licenses, 11563-11564 [2021-03865]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 36 / Thursday, February 25, 2021 / Notices Regulation V, 12 CFR 1022, to implement those provisions of FCRA for which CFPB has rulemaking authority. Regulation V contains several requirements that impose information collection requirements on federal credit unions (FCUs). The DFA did not transfer certain rulemaking authority under FCRA. Specifically, the DFA did not transfer to CFPB the authority to promulgate the requirement to properly dispose of consumer information; rules on identity theft red flags and corresponding interagency guidelines on identity theft detection, prevention, and mitigation, and rules on the duties of card issuers regarding changes of address. These provisions are promulgated in NCUA’s Fair Credit Reporting regulation, 12 CFR 717, which applies to federal credit unions. The collection of information pursuant to Parts 1022 and 717 is triggered by specific events and disclosures and must be provided to consumers within the time periods established under the regulation. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Private Sector: Notfor-profit institutions; Individuals or Households. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 272,686.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Discussion

    The NRC is issuing a new guide in the NRC's ``Regulatory Guide'' 
series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the 
public information regarding methods that are acceptable to the NRC 
staff for implementing specific parts of the agency's regulations, 
techniques that the NRC staff uses in evaluating specific issues or 
postulated events, and data that the NRC staff needs in its review of 
applications for permits and licenses.

II. Additional Information

    RG 1.237 was issued with a temporary identification of draft 
regulatory guide (DG)-1321. The NRC published a notice of the 
availability of DG-1321 in the Federal Register on May 5, 2020 (85 FR 
26725) for a 60-day public comment period. The public comment period 
closed on July 6, 2020. Public comments on DG-1321 and the staff 
responses to the public comments are available in ADAMS under Accession 
No. ML20349A336.

III. 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.

IV. Backfitting, Forward Fitting, and Issue Finality

    This RG provides guidance on implementation of a process for making 
changes to the design of structures, systems, and components of a 
facility being constructed under a combined license. Issuance of this 
RG, would not constitute backfitting as defined in section 50.109 of 
title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ``Backfitting,'' 
and as described in NRC Management Directive 8.4, ``Management of 
Backfitting, Forward Fitting, Issue Finality, and Information 
Requests''; affect issue finality of any approval issued under 10 CFR 
part 52, ``Licenses, Certificates, and Approvals for Nuclear Power 
Plants''; or constitute forward fitting as defined in MD 8.4, because, 
as explained in this RG, licensees are not required to comply with the 
positions set forth in this RG. If, in the future, the NRC were to 
impose a position in this RG in a manner that would constitute 
backfitting or forward fitting or affect the issue finality for a part 
52 approval, then the NRC would address the backfitting provision in 10 
CFR 50.109, the forward fitting provision of MD 8.4, or the applicable 
issue finality provision in part 52, respectively.

    Dated: February 19, 2021.
