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, Part 
54 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), 
``Requirements for Renewal of Operating Licenses for Nuclear Power 
Plants.'' 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 May 19, 2021, (86 FR 27119).
    1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 54 
``Requirements for Renewal of Operating Licenses for Nuclear Power 
Plants.''

    4. The form number, if applicable: Not applicable.
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: There is a

license for its nuclear power plant. There is a one-time requirement 
for each licensee with a renewed operating license to submit a letter 
documenting the completion of inspection and testing activities. All 
holders of renewed licenses must perform yearly record keeping.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Commercial nuclear 
power plant licensees who wish to renew their operating licenses and 
holders of renewed licenses.
    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 66 (11 reporting

    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 62 (1 initial
