Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review; Comment Request

AGENCY: U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and 
solicitation of public comment.


SUMMARY: The 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.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Revision.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 100, 
``Reactor Site Criteria''.
    3. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.
    4. How often the collection is required: As necessary in order for 
NRC to assess the adequacy of proposed seismic design bases and the 
design bases for other geological hazards for nuclear power and test 
reactors constructed and licensed in accordance with 10 CFR parts 50 
and 52 and the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended.
    5. Who will be required or asked to report: Applicants and 
licensees for nuclear power and test reactors.
    6. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 2.
    7. The estimated number of annual respondents: .33 (1 respondent 
every 3 years).
    8. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 8,711.
    9. An indication of whether section 3507(d), Pub. L. 104-13 
applies: Not applicable.
    10. Abstract: 10 CFR 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. Non-seismic siting criteria include such factors as 
population density, the proximity of man-related hazards, and site 
atmospheric dispersion characteristics. NRC uses the information 
required by 10 CFR part 100 to evaluate whether natural phenomena and 
potential man-made hazards will be

    Comments and questions should be directed to the OMB reviewer 
listed below by July 6, 2005. Comments received after this date will be 
considered if it is practical to do so, but assurance of consideration 
cannot be given to comments received after this date.
