Information Collection: Fitness-for-Duty Programs, 14649-14650 [2021-05537]

Download as PDF jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 50 / Wednesday, March 17, 2021 / Notices of full-time students at (1) not less than 85 percent of the applicable minimum wage or less than $1.60, whichever is higher, in retail or service establishments or in institutions of higher education (29 U.S.C. 214(b)(1), (3); 29 CFR part 519); and (2) not less than 85 percent of the applicable minimum wage or less than $1.30, whichever is higher, in agriculture (29 U.S.C. 214(b)(2), 29 CFR part 519). The FLSA and the regulations set forth the application requirements as well as the terms and conditions for the employment of full-time students at subminimum wages under certificates and temporary authorization to employ such students at subminimum wages. The forms used to apply for these certificates are WH–200 (retail, service, or agricultural employers seeking to employ full-time students for 10 percent or more of total monthly hours of employment), WH–201 (institution of higher learning seeking to employ its students), and WH–202 (retail, service, or agricultural employers seeking to employ six or fewer full-time students). Under section 14(a) of the FLSA, the Secretary of Labor is required to provide, by regulation or order, a special certificate for the employment of learners, apprentices, and messengers who may be paid less than the federal minimum wage set by section 6(a) of the Act. See 29 U.S.C. 214(a). The certificates are only issued to the extent necessary to prevent the curtailment of employment opportunities. This section also authorizes the Secretary to set limitations on such employment as to time, number, proportion, and length of service. The regulations at 29 CFR part 520 contain the provisions that implement the section 14(a) requirements. Form WH–205 is the application an employer uses to obtain a certificate to employ student-learners at wages lower than the federal minimum wage. Form WH–209 is the application an employer uses to request a certificate authorizing the employer to employ learners and/or messengers at subminimum wage rates. Regulations issued by the Department’s Office of Apprenticeship no longer permit the payment of subminimum wages to apprentices in an approved program; therefore, the Department has not issued apprentice certificates since 1987. See 29 CFR 29.5(b)(5). However, WHD must maintain the information collection for apprentice certificates in order for the agency to fulfill its statutory obligation under FLSA to maintain this program. II. Review Focus: The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments which: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Mar 16, 2021 Jkt 253001 • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.

The information collections required by 10 CFR part 26 are necessary to properly manage FFD programs and to enable effective and efficient regulatory oversight of affected licensees and other entities. These licensees and other entities must perform certain tasks, maintain records, and submit reports to comply with 10 CFR part 26 drug and alcohol and fatigue management requirements. These records and reports are necessary to enable regulatory inspection and evaluation of a licensee’s or other entity’s compliance with NRC regulations, FFD performance, and significant FFD-related events to help maintain public health and safety, promote the common defense and security, and protect the environment.

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 OMB for review entitled, 
``Fitness-for-Duty Programs.'' 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 November 6, 2020 (85 FR 
71109).
    1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 26, 
``Fitness for Duty Programs.''
    2. OMB approval number: 3150-0146.
    3. Type of submission: Extension.
    4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 890, ``Single Positive 
Test Form,'' NRC Form 891, ``Annual Reporting Form for Drug and Alcohol 
Tests,'' and NRC Form 892, ``Annual Fatigue Reporting Form.''
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: Annually and 
on occasion. The NRC receives reports on an annual basis that detail 
fitness-for-duty (FFD) program performance. The NRC also receives, on 
occasion, reports associated with FFD policy violations or programmatic 
failures. Depending on the type of violation or programmatic failure, 
the report would be made within 24 hours of the event occurrence, or 
within 30 days of completing an investigation into a programmatic 
failure.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Nuclear power reactor 
licensees licensed under 10 CFR part 50, ``Domestic licensing of 
production and utilization facilities'' and 10 CFR part 52, ``Licenses, 
certifications, and approvals for nuclear power plants'' (except those 
who have permanently ceased operations and have verified that fuel has 
been permanently removed from the reactor); all holders of nuclear 
power plant construction permits and early site permits with a limited 
work authorization and applicants for nuclear power plant construction 
permits that have a limited work authorization under the provisions of 
10 CFR part 50; all holders of a combined license for a nuclear power 
plant issued under 10 CFR part 52 and applicants for a combined license 
that have a limited work authorization; all licensees who are 
authorized to possess, use, or transport formula quantities of 
strategic special nuclear material (SSNM) under the provisions of 10 
CFR part 70, ``Domestic licensing of special nuclear material''; all 
holders of a certificate of compliance of an approved compliance plan 
issued under 10 CFR part 76 ``Certification of gaseous diffusion 
plants,'' if the holder engages in activities involving formula 
quantities of SSNM; and all contractor/vendors (C/Vs) who implement FFD

    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 70,561.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
comply with the information collection requirement or request: 597,976 
(5,347 reporting + 181,158 recordkeeping + 411,471 third party 
disclosure).
    10. Abstract: The NRC regulations in 10 CFR part 26 prescribe 
requirements to establish, implement, and maintain FFD programs at 
affected licensees and other entities. The objectives of these 
requirements are to provide reasonable assurance that persons subject 
to the rule are trustworthy, reliable, and not under the influence of 
any substance, legal or illegal, or mentally or physically impaired 
from any cause, which in any way could adversely affect their ability 
to safely and competently perform their duties. These requirements also 
provide reasonable assurance that the effects of fatigue and degraded 
alertness on individual's abilities to safely and competently perform 
their duties are managed commensurate with maintaining public health 
and safety. The information collections required by 10 CFR part 26 are 
necessary to properly manage FFD programs and to enable effective and 
efficient regulatory oversight of affected licensees and other 
entities. These licensees and other entities must perform certain 
tasks, maintain records, and submit reports to comply with 10 CFR part 
26 drug and alcohol and fatigue management requirements. These records 
and reports are necessary to enable regulatory inspection and 
evaluation of a licensee's or other entity's compliance with NRC 
regulations, FFD performance, and significant FFD-related events to 
help maintain public health and safety, promote the common defense and 
security, and protect the environment.
