Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 188 / Thursday, September 29, 2022 / Notices khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES operative guidance and policy documents into one location and provides guidance that interprets the planning standards and evaluation criteria contained in NUREG–0654 and 44 CFR part 350. See FEMA P–1028, December 2019. As part of our collection to fulfill one of FEMA’s missions, each instrument is required for the performance of duties related to the mission. Therefore, due to the maturity of the program and the opportunity to reduce burden cost, there is an opportunity to consolidate, improve, or remove collection instruments. Consequently, the collection instrument in 44 CFR 350.9(c) was added to collect information and relieve requests from the exercise schedule outlined in 44 CFR 350.9. Additionally, to further reduce burden cost, the collection in 44 CFR 352.4 has been removed as it currently does not require approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act, with FEMA only receiving one or no responses in a given year. This proposed information collection previously published in the Federal Register on June 7, 2022, at 87 FR 34699 with a 60 day public comment period. No comments were received. The purpose of this notice is to notify the public that FEMA will submit the information collection abstracted below to the Office of Management and Budget for review and clearance. Collection of Information Title: Federal Assistance for Offsite Radiological Emergency Preparedness and Planning. Type of Information Collection: Revision of a currently approved information collection. OMB Number: 1660–0024. FEMA Forms: There are no forms for this collection; rather the regulatory text details the content in which information is transmitted to FEMA. Abstract: The intent of this request is the collection of comments on an extension, with change, of a currently approved information collection an OMB control number representing all information collections related to FEMA REP Program requirements described in 44 CFR parts 350 and 352.
