10 CFR Part 10

RIN 3150-AH69

Delegation Changes

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is revising its 
regulations to change the references from Deputy Executive Director for 
Management Services to Deputy Executive Director for Information 
Services and Administration and Chief Information Officer. The revision 
is necessary to reflect a recent realignment in the Office of the 
Executive Director for Operations. This final rule is necessary to 
inform the public of organizational changes within the NRC.

DATES: Effective May 31, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Alzonia Shepard, Regulations 
Specialist, Rules and Directives Branch, Division of Administrative 
Services, Office of Administration, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, 
Washington, DC 20555-0001, Telephone (301) 415-6864, e-mail 
[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 6, 2005, the NRC announced a 
realignment of functions of the Office of the Executive Director for 
Operations. With the realignment, some of the functions assigned 
previously to the Deputy Executive Director for Management Services are 
assigned to the Deputy Executive Director for Information Services and 
Administration and Chief Information Officer.
    Because these amendments constitute minor administrative changes to 

[[Page 30897]]

regulations concerning agency organization, the notice and comment 
provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act do not apply under 5 
U.S.C. 553(b)(B). The amendments are effective upon publication in the 
Federal Register. Good cause exists under 5 U.S.C 553(d) to dispense 
with the usual 30-day delay in the effective date of the final rule, 
because the amendments are of a minor and administrative nature dealing 
with changes to certain CFR sections, which do not require action by 
any person or entity regulated by the NRC. Further, the final rule does 
not change the substantive responsibilities of any person or entity 
regulated by the NRC.

Environmental Impact: Categorical Exclusion

    The NRC has determined that this final rule is the type of action 
described in categorical exclusion 10 CFR 51.22(c)(2). Therefore, 
neither an environmental impact statement nor an environmental 
assessment has been prepared for this final rule.

Paperwork Reduction Act Statement

    This final rule does not contain new or amended information 
collection requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 
(44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Existing requirements were approved by the 
Office of Management and Budget, approval numbers 3150-0053; 3150-0044; 
3150-0010; 3150-0130; 3150-0020; and 3150-0011.

Public Protection Notification

    The NRC may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to 
respond to, a request for information of an information collection 
requirement unless the requesting document displays a currently valid 
OMB control number.
