Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review; Comment Request

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

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


SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (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. The NRC 
published a Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period on 
this information collection on February 2, 2012 (77 FR 5279).
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 62, 
``Criteria and Procedures for Emergency Access to

Non-Federal and Regional Low-Level Waste Disposal Facilities.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0143.
    4. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    5. How often the collection is required: The collection would only 
be required upon application for a Commission emergency access 
determination when access to a non-Federal or regional low-level waste 
disposal facility is denied, which results in an immediate public 
health and safety and/or common defense and security concern.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Generators of low-level 
radioactive waste, or the Governor of a State on behalf of any 
generator or generators located in his or her State who are denied 
access to a non-Federal or regional low-level radioactive wastes and 
who wish to request emergency access for disposal at a non-Federal or 
regional LLW disposal facility pursuant to 10 CFR part 62.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 1.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 1.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 233.
    10. Abstract: 10 CFR part 62 sets out the information which must be 
provided to the NRC by any low-level waste generator or Governor of a 
State on behalf of generators seeking emergency access to an operating 
low-level waste disposal facility. The information is required to allow 
the NRC to determine if denial of disposal constitutes a serious and 
immediate threat to public health and safety or common defense and 
security. 10 CFR part 62 also provides that the Commission may grant an 
exemption from the requirements in this Part upon application of an 
interested person or upon its own initiative.
