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

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of the Office of Management and Budget (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 September 5, 2012 (77 FR 54617).
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 398, 
``Personal Qualification Statement--Licensee.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0090.
    4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 398.
    5. How often the collection is required: Upon application for an 
initial or upgrade operator license and every 6 years for the renewal 
of operator or senior operator licenses.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Facility licensees who 
are tasked with certifying that the applicants and renewal operators 
are qualified to be licensed as reactor operators and senior reactor 
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 1,436.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 1,436.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 3,680.25.
    10. Abstract: NRC Form 398 is used to transmit detailed information 
required to be submitted to the NRC by a facility licensee on each 
applicant applying for new and upgraded licenses or license renewals to 
operate the controls at a nuclear reactor facility. This information is 
used to determine that each applicant or renewal operator seeking a 
license or renewal of a license is qualified to be issued a license and 
that the licensed operator would not be expected to cause operational 
errors and endanger public health and safety.
