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

AGENCY: 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: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: Voluntary Reporting of 
Performance Indicators.
    3. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    4. How often the collection is required: Quarterly.
    5. Who will be required or asked to report: Power reactor 
    6. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 416.
    7. The estimated number of annual respondents: 104.
    8. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: Approximately 84,520 hours (83,200 
reporting hours plus 1,320 recordkeeping hours for 33 recordkeepers).
    9. An indication of whether Section 3507(d), Public Law 104-13 
applies: N/A.
    10. Abstract: As part of a joint industry-NRC initiative, the NRC 
receives information submitted voluntarily by power reactor licensees 
regarding selected performance attributes known as performance 
indicators (PIs). PIs are objective measures of the performance of 
licensee systems or programs. The NRC's reactor oversight process uses 
PI information, along with the results of audits and inspections, as 
the basis for NRC conclusions regarding plant performance and necessary 
regulatory response. Licensees transmit PIs electronically to reduce 
burden on themselves and the NRC.
