Document Number: 2014-16357
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-07-14
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 for renewal of an existing information collection 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: 48 CFR 20, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Acquisition Regulation (NRCAR). 2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0169. 3. How often the collection is required: On occasion; one time. 4. Who is required or asked to report: NRC contractors and potential contractors. 5. The number of annual respondents: 2,473 respondents. 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 20,095 (18,750 reporting plus 1,345 recordkeeping). 7. Abstract: The mandatory requirements of the NRCAR implement and supplement the Government-wide Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), and ensure that the regulations governing the procurement of goods and services within the NRC satisfy the particular needs of the agency. Because of differing statutory authorities among Federal agencies, the FAR authorizes agencies to issue regulations to implement FAR policies and procedures internally to satisfy the specific need of the agency. Submit, by September 12, 2014, 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 O1-F21, 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.

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 for renewal of an existing information collection 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: 10 CFR Part 100 ``Reactor Site Criteria.'' 2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0093. 3. How often the collection is required: As necessary in order for the NRC to assess the adequacy of proposed seismic design bases and the design bases for other site hazards for nuclear power and test reactors constructed and licensed in accordance with Parts 50 and 52 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) and the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended. 4. Who is required or asked to report: Applicants and licensees for nuclear power and test reactors. 5. The number of annual respondents: 2.3 (7 respondents over a 3- year period). 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 167,900 hours (73,000 per application x 2.3 applications). 7. Abstract: Part 100, Reactor Site Criteria, establishes approval requirements for proposed sites for the purpose of constructing and operating stationary power and testing reactors pursuant to the provisions of 10 CFR parts 50 or 52. These reactors are required to be sited, designed, constructed, and maintained to withstand geologic hazards, such as faulting, seismic hazards, and the maximum credible earthquake, to protect the health and safety of the public and the environment. Non-seismic siting criteria must also be evaluated. Seismic siting criteria include such factors as population density, the proximity of man-related hazards, and site atmospheric dispersion characteristics. The NRC uses the information required by 10 CFR part 100 to evaluate whether natural phenomena and potential man-made hazards will be appropriately accounted for in the design of nuclear power and test reactors.

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 for renewal of an existing information collection 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 Form 445, ``Request for Approval of Official Foreign Travel.'' 2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0193. 3. How often the collection is required: On occasion. 4. Who is required or asked to report: Non-Federal consultants, contractors and NRC's invited travelers (i.e., non-NRC employees). 5. The number of annual respondents: 20. 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 40 hours (2 hours per response). 7. Abstract: NRC Form 445, ``Request for Approval of Foreign Travel,'' is supplied by consultants, contractors, and NRC's invited travelers who must travel to foreign countries in the course of conducting business for the NRC. In accordance with 48 CFR part 20, ``NRC Acquisition Regulation,'' contractors traveling to foreign countries are required to complete this form. The information requested includes the name of the Office Director/Regional Administrator or Chairman, as appropriate, the traveler's identifying information, purpose of travel, listing of the trip coordinators, other NRC's travelers and contractors attending the same meeting, and a proposed itinerary. Revisions to NRC's Management Directives 14.1 and 5.13 require each traveler to obtain a briefing on the most recent status of the threat environment prior to travel, and to requisition government issued communication devices such as cell phones and laptops for use while travelling. These and other procedural changes necessitated a redesign of NRC Form 445. Submit, by September 2, 2014, 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.
