II. Background

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
chapter 35), the NRC is requesting public comment on its intention to 
request the OMB's approval for the information collection summarized 
below.
    1. The title of the information collection: Part 73 of title 10 of 
the Code

[[Page 33383]]

of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ``Physical Protection of Plants and 
Materials.''
    2. 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 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?
