[Docket No. NRC-2010-0119]

Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

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

ACTION: Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information 
collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and 
solicitation of public comment.


SUMMARY: The 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 Forms 366, 366A, 
366B, `Licensee Event Report' ''.
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0104.
    3. How often the collection is required: On occasion, as defined 
reactor events are reportable as they occur.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Holders of operating 
licenses for commercial nuclear power plants.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 104.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 32,000 (25,600 reporting + 6,400 recordkeeping). This is 
estimated to be 80 hours for each of 400 reports annually.
    7. Abstract: With NRC Forms 366, 366A, and 366B, the NRC collects 
reports of the types of reactor events and problems that are believed 
to be significant and useful to the NRC in its efforts to identify and 
resolve possible threats to the public health and safety, or to the 
environment. The information reported on NRC Forms 366, 366A, and 366B 
is used by the NRC to confirm licensing bases, study potentially 
generic safety problems, assess trends and patterns of operating 
experience, monitor performance, identify precursors of more 
significant events, and provide operating experience feedback to the 
industry. These forms are designed to provide the information necessary 
for engineering studies of operational anomalies and trends and 
patterns analysis of abnormal occurrences. The same information is used 
for other analytic procedures that aid in identifying accident 
    Submit, by June 1, 2010, comments that address the following 
    1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC 
to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical 
    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?
