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 OMB review of information collection and solicitation 
of public comment.


SUMMARY: The NRC has recently submitted to the Office of Management and 
Budget (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. The NRC published a Federal 
Register Notice with a 60-day comment period on this information 
collection on March 24, 2010.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Revision.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 52, 
``Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0151.
    4. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.
    5. How often the collection is required: Whenever applications are 
made for Early Site Permits (ESPs), Standard Design Certifications 
(SDCs), Combined Licenses (COLs), Standard Design Approvals (SDAs), or 
Manufacturing Licenses (MLs); and every 10 to 20 years for applications 
for renewal.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Designers of commercial 
nuclear power plants (NPPs), electric power companies, and any person 
eligible under the Atomic Energy Act to apply for ESPs, SDCs, COLs, or 
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 11.332.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 4.666.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 204,075 (191,774 reporting, 12,301 
    10. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 52 establishes requirements for the 
granting of ESPs, certifications of standard NPP designs, and licenses 
which combine in a single license a construction permit, and an 
operating license with conditions, OLs, MLs, SDAs, and pre-application 
reviews of site suitability issues. Part 52 also establishes 
requirements for renewal of those approvals, permits, certifications, 
and licenses; amendments to them; exemptions from certifications; and 
variances from ESPs.
    NRC uses the information collected to assess the adequacy and 
suitability of an applicant's site, plant design, construction, 
training and experience, plans and procedures for the protection of 
public health and safety. The NRC review of such information and the 
findings derived from that information form the basis of NRC decisions 
and actions concerning the issuance, modification or revocation of site 
permits, DCs, COLs, and MLs for NPPs.
