Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) invites public comment about our intention to request the OMB's approval of the vendor information collection method that is summarized below. We are required to publish this notice in the Federal Register under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted: 1. The title of the information collection: NRC Reactor Vendor Registration. 2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-XXXX. 3. How often the collection is required: Annually. 4. Who is required or asked to report: Power reactor licensee and applicants are asked to report voluntary. 5. The number of annual respondents: 192. 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 183.5 hrs. 7. Abstract: The NRC is commencing an effort to identify vendors of safety- related parts and services to nuclear power plants both directly (vendors) and indirectly (sub-vendors). For the purpose of this document, the term vendor includes supplier. The NRC licensees and applicants are responsible for the safety of facilities licensed by the NRC. As such, they are responsible for ensuring that their vendors meet applicable regulations and requirements, both technical and quality, in purchase documents. In order to ensure that licensees are meeting the regulatory requirements in this area, the NRC inspects vendors to evaluate their conformance with technical and quality requirements in part 21 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ``Reporting of Defects and Noncompliance,'' and Appendix B, ``Quality Assurance Criteria for Nuclear Power Plants and Fuel Reprocessing Plants,'' to 10 CFR part 50, as required by procurement contracts with licensees. There is no requirement for vendors to register with the NRC. This collection will assist the NRC in assessing the number and variety of vendors of safety-related parts and services for resource and vendor inspection planning. As part of that effort, the NRC plans to (1) issue a communication to power reactor licensee and applicants requesting the voluntary submittal of vendor information and (2) create a Web page on its public Web site that allows vendor and sub-vendor information to be submitted individually. When power reactor licensee and applicants respond either by submitting their information by mail or online they will be asked to provide the following information: Vendor names, vendor addresses, vendor points of contact, vendor point of contact email address, vendor telephone number, scope of supply, and comments. Additionally, Vendors will also be able to use this Web page voluntarily to complete self registration. Submit, by November 23, 2012, 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? The public may examine and have copied for a fee publicly available documents, including the draft supporting statement, at the NRC's Public Document Room, Room O-1F21, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852. The OMB clearance requests are available at the NRC's Web site: http://www.nrc.gov/public-involve/ doc-comment/omb/. The document will be available on the NRC's home page site for 60 days after the signature date of this notice. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be made available for public inspection. Because your comments will not be edited to remove any identifying or contact information, the NRC cautions you against including any information in your submission that you do not want to be publicly disclosed. Comments submitted should reference Docket No. NRC- 2012-0191.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will consider the issue raised in the petition for rulemaking (PRM) submitted by Annette User, on behalf of GE Osmonics, Inc. (GE or the petitioner), in the rulemaking process. The petitioner requests that the NRC amend its regulations regarding the commercial distribution of byproduct material to allow recipients of exempt quantities of polymer (polycarbonate or polyester) track etch (PCTE) membranes that have been irradiated with mixed fission products (MFP) to commercially redistribute the material without a license. In its review of the PRM, the NRC concluded that the petitioner raised a valid issue concerning regulatory control of the commercial distribution of PCTE membranes that the NRC will consider in its rulemaking process.
