Document Number: 2013-05306
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-03-07
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is expanding the scope of the post-investigation Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Program for a 1-year pilot period. The NRC and its licensees are the parties to this form of ADR. Currently, post-investigation ADR is used in the NRC's Enforcement Program for cases involving discrimination and other wrongdoing after the NRC's Office of Investigations has completed an investigation substantiating the allegation. The pilot ADR Program will expand post-investigation ADR to include all escalated non-willful (traditional) enforcement cases with proposed civil penalties (this will not include violations associated with findings assessed through the Reactor Oversight Process (ROP) \1\).
Revision of Fee Schedules; Fee Recovery for Fiscal Year 2013
Document Number: 2013-05172
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-03-07
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend the licensing, inspection, and annual fees charged to its applicants and licensees. The proposed amendments are necessary to implement the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (OBRA-90), as amended, which requires the NRC to recover through fees approximately 90 percent of its budget authority in Fiscal Year (FY) 2013, not including amounts appropriated for Waste Incidental to Reprocessing (WIR) and amounts appropriated for generic homeland security activities. The NRC is currently operating under a Continuing Resolution (CR) which is set to expire on March 27, 2013. Based on the FY 2013 budget submitted to the Congress, the NRC is proposing fees in this rulemaking based on the FY 2013 budget which is estimated to be $1,053.2 million. After accounting for billing adjustments, the total amount to be billed as fees is approximately $924.8 million. These fees are subject to change pending congressional action which may include sequestration, full-year CR or issuance of an FY 2013 appropriation which differs from the FY 2013 budget submitted to Congress which could result in higher or lower fees than those proposed in this rulemaking.

Notice of Forthcoming Workshop To Discuss Revisions to NUREG/BR-0204, Rev. 2 “Instructions for Completing NRC's Uniform Low-Level Waste Manifest”
Document Number: 2013-03850
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-02-20
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) plans to conduct a public workshop to discuss possible revisions to NUREG/BR-0204, Rev. 2 ``Instructions for Completing NRC's Uniform Low-Level Radioactive Waste Manifest.'' Information will be gathered from subject matter experts and other interested members of the public regarding NUREG/BR- 0204 and how it can best be revised. Specifically, the NRC staff is interested in gaining a better understanding of the issues associated with reporting certain difficult-to-measure (DTM) radionuclides on shipping waste manifests as required by Appendix G of part 20 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). In particular based on their experience some involved members of the public would like the NRC to update NUREG/BR-0204 to address the manifesting of Technecium-99 (Tc-99), Carbon-14 (C-14), Tritium (H-3), and Iodine-129 (I-129) to minimize over-estimation of activity. These isotopes are key contributors to groundwater dose and can lead to premature closure of low-level radioactive waste disposal facilities if over-estimated. Additionally, the NRC staff received comments from involved members of the public recommending that the NRC staff consider Chlorine-36 (Cl-36) during this effort so staff will also address the reporting of Cl-36 in the update to NUREG/BR-0204.

Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review; Comment Request
Document Number: 2013-03723
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-02-19
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has recently submitted to OMB for review the following proposal for the collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). 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 November 23, 2012 (77 FR 70192). 1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension. 2. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 664, General Licensee Registration. 3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0198. 4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 664. 5. How often the collection is required: Annually. 6. Who will be required or asked to report: General Licensees of the NRC who possess certain generally licensed devices subject to annual registration authorized pursuant to section 31.5 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). 7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 633. 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 633. 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 211 hours (633 annual responses x \1/3\ hour). 10. Abstract: NRC Form 664 is used by NRC general licensees to make reports regarding certain generally licensed devices subject to annual registration. The registration program allows NRC to better track general licensees, so that they can be contacted or inspected as necessary, and to make sure that generally licensed devices can be identified even if lost or damaged. Also, the registration program ensures that general licensees are aware of and understand the requirements for the possession, use and disposal of devices containing byproduct material. Greater awareness helps to ensure that general licensees will comply with the regulatory requirements for proper handling and disposal of generally licensed devices and would reduce the potential for incidents that could result in unnecessary radiation exposure to the public and contamination of property. The public may examine and have copied for a fee publicly available documents, including the final 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.
