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 April 30, 2012 (77 FR 25505).
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: Request for Information 
Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.54(f) Regarding Recommendations 2.1, 2.3, and 
9.3, of the Near-Term Task Force Review of insights from the Fukushima 
Dai-Ichi Event.
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0211.
    4. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    5. How often the collection is required: Once.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: 104 power reactor 
licensees, 2 reactors in the process of resuming licensing, and 2 
Combined License applicants (2 units each).
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 525.3.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 110.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 457,502 hours.
    10. Abstract: Following events at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear 
power plant resulting from the March 11, 2011, earthquake and 
subsequent tsunami, and in response to requirements contained in 
Section 402 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act (Pub. L. 112-074), 
the NRC sought an expedited clearance from OMB to allow the collection 
of information from power reactor licensees pursuant to 10 CFR 
50.54(f). The OMB approved this clearance, which will expire on 
September 30, 2012. The NRC has resubmitted this collection to the OMB 
under the normal clearance processes. The information requested 
includes seismic and flooding hazard reevaluations to determine if 
further regulatory action is necessary, walkdowns to confirm compliance 
with the current licensing basis and provide input to the hazard 
reevaluations, and analysis of the Emergency Preparedness capability 
with respect to staffing and communication ability during a prolonged 
multiunit event.

documents, including the final supporting statement, at the NRC's

are available at the NRC's Web site: http://www.nrc.gov/public-involve/doc-comment/omb/. The document will be available on the NRC home page 
site for 60 days after the signature date of this notice.
    Comments and questions should be directed to the OMB reviewer 
listed below by September 17, 2012. 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.
