OMB approval number: 3150–0002. 3. Type of submission: Extension. 4. The form number, if applicable: N/A. 5. How often the collection is required or requested: Once for the initial submittal of Cyber Security Plans, Physical Security Plans, Safeguards Contingency Plans, and Security Training and Qualification Plans and then on occasion when changes are made. Required reports are submitted and evaluated as events occur. 6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Nuclear power reactor licensees licensed under 10 CFR parts 50 or 52 who possess, use, import, export, transport, or deliver to a carrier for transport, special nuclear material; actively decommissioning reactor licensees; Category I, Category II and Category III fuel facilities; nonpower reactors (research and test reactors); and other entities who mark and handle Safeguards Information. 7. The estimated number of annual responses: 130,968 (40,889 reporting responses + 89,869 third party disclosure responses + 210 record keepers). 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 210 (56 power reactors; 20 decommissioning reactor facilities; 2 Category I fuel facilities; 5 Category II and III fuel facilities; 31 nonpower reactors; and 96 other entities who mark and handle Safeguards Information). 9. The estimated number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 495,892 hours (22,631 reporting + 451,788 recordkeeping + 21,473 third party disclosure). 10. Abstract: The NRC regulations in 10 CFR part 73 prescribe requirements to establish and maintain a physical protection system and security organization with capabilities for protection of: (1) Special nuclear material (SNM) at fixed sites, (2) SNM in transit, and (3) plants in which SNM is used. 10 CFR part 73 contains reporting and recordkeeping requirements which are necessary to help ensure that an adequate level of protection is provided for nuclear facilities and nuclear material, such as: Development and maintenance of security documents including a physical security plan, a training and qualification plan, a safeguards contingency plan, a cyber security plan, and security implementing procedures; notifications to the NRC regarding safeguards and cyber security events; notifications to state governors and VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:19 Jun 23, 2021 Jkt 253001 tribes of shipments of irradiated reactor fuel; and requirements for conducting criminal history records checks of individuals granted unescorted access to a nuclear power facility, a non-power reactor, or access to Safeguards Information. The objective is to ensure that activities involving special nuclear material are consistent with interests of common defense and security and that these activities do not constitute an unreasonable risk to public health and safety. The information in the reports and records submitted by licensees is used by the NRC staff to ensure that the health and safety of the public and the environment are protected, and licensee possession and use of special nuclear material is in compliance with license and regulatory requirements. 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: June 14, 2021.

These licenses provide, among other things, that the respective facilities are subject to all rules, regulations, and orders of the NRC now or hereafter in effect. The facilities consist of three pressurized-water reactors located in Buchanan, New York, in Westchester County, all of which are permanently shutdown. On December 19, 2019, HDI submitted to the NRC the PSDAR for the IPEC, contingent upon the transfer of the IPEC licenses to HDI (ADAMS Accession No. ML19354A698). Paragraph 50.82(a)(4)(i) of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) states that a PSDAR must contain a description of the planned decommissioning activities along with a schedule for their accomplishment, a discussion that provides the reasons for concluding that the environmental impacts associated with site-specific decommissioning activities will be bounded by appropriate previously issued environmental impact statements, and a site-specific DCE, including the projected cost of managing irradiated fuel. The IPEC license transfer transaction closed on May 28, 2021. Accordingly, pursuant to 10 CFR 50.82(a)(4)(ii), the NRC is noticing receipt of the PSDAR and making it available for public comment. III. Request for Comment and Public Meeting The NRC is requesting public comments on the PSDAR, including the DCE, for the IPEC.

ACTION: Draft regulatory guide; request for comment. AGENCY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for public comment a draft regulatory guide (DG), DG–4029, ‘‘Use of Plant Parameter Envelope in Early Site Permit Applications.’’ DG–4029 is a new regulatory guide that proposes guidance for nuclear power plant applicants that elect to use the plant parameter envelope (PPE) concept to assume certain design parameters for an early site permit (ESP) application when a specific reactor technology has not been selected for a proposed site. It incorporates the PPE portions of NRC Review Standard (RS)–002, ‘‘Processing Applications for Early Site Permits.’’ The issuance of this DG allows the NRC staff to withdraw the outdated guidance in RS–002 while retaining the PPE information in it for future use by prospective ESP applicants. DATES: Submit comments by August 9, 2021. Comments received after this date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but the NRC is able to ensure consideration only for comments received on or before this date. Although a time limit is given, comments and suggestions in connection with items for inclusion in guides currently being developed or improvements in all published guides are encouraged at any time.

II. Discussion

    HDI has the authority to conduct licensed activities under 
Provisional License No. DPR-5, Renewed Facility License No. DPR-26, and 
Renewed Facility License No. DPR-64 for the IPEC and the general 
license for the IPEC independent spent fuel storage installation. These 
licenses provide, among other things, that the respective facilities 
are subject to all rules, regulations, and orders of the NRC now or 
hereafter in effect. The facilities consist of three pressurized-water 
reactors located in Buchanan, New York, in Westchester County, all of 
which are permanently shutdown.
    On December 19, 2019, HDI submitted to the NRC the PSDAR for the 
IPEC, contingent upon the transfer of the IPEC licenses to HDI (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML19354A698). Paragraph 50.82(a)(4)(i) of title 10 of the 
Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) states that a PSDAR must contain a 
description of the planned decommissioning activities along with a 
schedule for their accomplishment, a discussion that provides the 
reasons for concluding that the environmental impacts associated with 
site-specific decommissioning activities will be bounded by appropriate 
previously issued environmental impact statements, and a site-specific 
DCE, including the projected cost of managing irradiated fuel. The IPEC 
license transfer transaction closed on May 28, 2021. Accordingly, 
pursuant to 10 CFR 50.82(a)(4)(ii), the NRC is noticing receipt of the 
PSDAR and making it available for public comment.

III. Request for Comment and Public Meeting

    The NRC is requesting public comments on the PSDAR, including the 
DCE, for the IPEC. The NRC will hold a public meeting in the vicinity 
of the IPEC to discuss the PSDAR's content and receive comments. The 
date, time, and location of the meeting will be provided in a future 
Federal Register notice. The NRC requests that comments that are not 
provided during the meeting be submitted as noted in section I, 
``Obtaining Information and Submitting Comments,'' of this document in 
writing by October 22, 2021.
