Current OMB approval number: 3150-0035. 3. How often the collection is required: As necessary in order for NRC to meet its responsibilities to conduct a detailed review of defects in basic components of nuclear power plants or failures to comply that could create a substantial safety hazard. 4. Who is required or asked to report: All directors and responsible officers of firms and organizations building, operating, owning, or supplying basic components to NRC licensed facilities. 5. The number of annual respondents: 35. 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 7,574 hours (4,970 hours reporting and 2,604 hours recordkeeping). 7. Abstract: 10 CFR part 21 implements Section 206 of the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5846), as amended. Section 206 requires individual directors and responsible officers of firms constructing, owning, operating, or supplying the basic components of any facility or activity licensed under the Atomic Energy Act to report immediately to the Commission the discovery of defects in basic components or failures to comply that could create a substantial safety hazard (SSH). In addition to imposing obligations on the individual directors and responsible officers of NRC licensees, Section 206 also imposes obligations on the directors and responsible officers of non- licensees that construct facilities for, or supply basic components to, licensed facilities or activities. Any individual officer or director who knowingly fails to comply with the notification requirements is subject to civil penalties. Submit, by June 25, 2007, 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 burden estimate 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 be minimized, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology?

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request for Reclearance of a Revised Information Collection: RI 20-63, RI 20-116, RI 20-117
Document Number: E7-7826
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-04-25
Agency: Office of Personnel Management, Personnel Management Office, Agencies and Commissions
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for review of a revised information collection. RI 20-63, Survivor Annuity Election for a Spouse, is used by annuitants to elect a reduced annuity with a survivor annuity for their spouse. RI 20-116 is a cover letter for RI 20-63 giving information about the cost to elect less than the maximum survivor annuity. This letter may be used to decline to elect. RI 20-117 is a cover letter for RI 20-63 giving information about the cost to elect the maximum survivor annuity. This letter may be used to ask for more information or to decline to elect. RI 20-117 is accompanied by RI 20-63A, Information on Electing a Survivor Annuity for Your Spouse, or RI 20-63B, Information on Electing a Survivor Annuity for Your Spouse When You Are Providing a Former Spouse Annuity. Both booklets explain the election. RI 20-63A is for annuitants who do not have a former spouse who is entitled to a survivor annuity benefit. RI 20-63B is for those who do have a former spouse who is entitled to a benefit. These booklets do not require OMB clearance. They have been included because they provide the annuitant additional information. Approximately 2,400 RI 20-63 forms are returned each year electing survivor annuities and 200 annuitants return the cover letter to ask for information about the cost to elect less than the maximum survivor annuity or to refuse to provide any survivor benefit. It is estimated to take approximately 45 minutes to complete the form with a burden of 1,800 hours and 10 minutes to complete the letter, which gives a burden of 34 hours. The total burden for RI 20-63 is 1,834 hours. For copies of this proposal, contact Mary Beth Smith-Toomey on (202) 606-8358, FAX (202) 418-3251 or via e-mail to MaryBeth.Smith- Toomey@opm.gov. Please include a mailing address with your request.

Agency: Office of Personnel Management, Personnel Management Office, Agencies and Commissions
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for extension of a currently approved information collection.

Agency: Office of Personnel Management, Personnel Management Office, Agencies and Commissions
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for reclearance of a revised information collection. RI 38-128, It's Time to Sign Up for Direct Deposit, is primarily used by OPM to give recent retirees the opportunity to waive Direct Deposit of their annuity payments. The form is sent only if the separating agency did not give the retiring employee this election opportunity. This form may also be used to enroll in Direct Deposit, which was its primary use before Public Law 104-134 was passed. This law requires OPM to make all annuity payments by Direct Deposit unless the payee has waived the service in writing. Approximately 20,000 forms are completed annually. The form takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. The annual estimated burden is 10,000 hours. For copies of this proposal, contact Mary Beth Smith-Toomey on (202) 606-8358, Fax (202) 418-3251 or via e-mail to MaryBeth.Smith- Toomey@opm.gov. Please include a mailing address with your request.

Revised Standards for Mailing Lithium Batteries
Document Number: E7-7817
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-04-25
Agency: Postal Service, Agencies and Commissions
The Postal Service is proposing to revise our mailing standards for lithium batteries. Currently, our standards limit customers and battery manufacturers from using the mail to send consumer-type lithium batteries, and prohibit the mailing of devices powered by lithium batteries when the batteries are in the device. These standards are excessively restrictive because they obstruct the mailing of commonly used consumer-type batteries that are permitted to be transported by air under Department of Transportation (DOT) and International Air Transportation Association (IATA) regulations. In addition, under our current standards, it is difficult to determine which lithium batteries meet mailing standards and which do not. Therefore, by identifying all small consumer-type lithium batteries as mailable when properly labeled and packaged, this proposal would increase the safety of the mail. Our proposed standards are based on, yet more restrictive than, DOT shipping regulations for lithium batteries.
Revised Standards for Mailing Sharps Waste and Other Regulated Medical Waste
Document Number: E7-7816
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-04-25
Agency: Postal Service, Agencies and Commissions
The Postal ServiceTM is proposing to revise the mailing standards for medical waste so that medical professionals can more easily use the mail to ship waste to disposal sites. For over 15 years we have safely permitted approved vendors to use the mail for return of sharps and other regulated medical waste for disposal. Under our current standards, mail-back medical waste containers are most often used by individuals who self-inject medications to control diseases such as diabetes and arthritis. By increasing the maximum allowable weight of medical waste mail-back containers and at the same time requiring additional packaging safeguards, we intend to provide small medical offices the option of using the mail for sending medical waste for disposal. This proposal would allow medical professionals a safe, easy, and cost-effective means of disposing of sharps and other regulated medical waste.
Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request-Consumer Focus Groups
Document Number: E7-7811
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-04-25
Agency: Consumer Product Safety Commission, Agencies and Commissions
On January 18, 2007, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC or Commission) published a notice in accordance with provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) (PRA), to announce the agency's intention to seek approval for a collection of information to be conducted through Consumer Focus Groups. 72 FR 2264. The Commission now announces that it is submitting to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for approval of that collection of information. The Commission received two comments. Both commenters, Safe Kids Worldwide (Safe Kids) and Carol Pollack-Nelson, supported the collection of information because it would inform the Commission's plans in the areas of public education, recall effectiveness, product research and voluntary standards development. Safe Kids requested that a special emphasis be placed on children's products. Safe Kids also requested that the focus groups and any subsequent reports resulting from the focus groups be made available to the public. Staff is currently developing the format for specific focus groups and will evaluate whether making such focus groups and any resulting reports public may be useful after the program is fully operational. The information collected from the Consumer Focus Groups will help inform the Commission's evaluation of consumer products and product use by providing insight and information into consumer perceptions and usage patterns. Such information may also assist the Commission in its efforts to support voluntary standards activities, and help the staff identify areas regarding consumer safety issues that need additional research. In addition, based on the information obtained, the staff may be able to provide safety information to the public that is easier to read and is more easily understood by a wider range of consumers. The Consumer Focus Groups also may be used to solicit consumer opinions and feedback regarding the effectiveness of product recall communications and in determining what action is being taken by consumers in response to such communications and why. This may aid in tailoring future recall activities to increase the success of those activities. If this information is not collected, the Commission may not have available certain useful information regarding consumer experiences, opinions, and perceptions related to specific product use, which the Commission uses, in part, in its ongoing efforts to improve the safety of consumer products on behalf of consumers.
