Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for the 
Office of Management and Budget 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

[[Page 16062]]

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 December 
27, 2013 (78 FR 79016).
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: Comprehensive 
Decommissioning Program, Including Annual Data Collection.
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0206.
    4. How often the collection is required: Annually.
    5. Who will be required or asked to report: All Agreement States 
who have signed Section 274(b) Agreements with the NRC.
    6. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 37 (14 Agreement 
States respondents with sites of interest + 23 Agreement States 
respondents with no sites of interest).
    7. The estimated number of annual respondents: 37 (14 Agreement 
States respondents with sites of interest + 23 Agreement States 
respondents with no sites of interest).
    8. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 469 (400 hours from Agreement 
States with sites of interest + 69 hours from Agreement States with no 
sites of interest).
    9. Abstract: The Agreement States will be asked to provide 
information about uranium recovery and complex sites undergoing 
decommissioning regulated by the Agreement States on an annual basis. 
The information request will allow the NRC to compile, in a centralized 
location, more complete information on the status of decommissioning 
and decontamination in the United States in order to provide a national 
perspective on decommissioning. The information will be made available 
to the public by the NRC in order to ensure openness and promote 
communication to enhance public knowledge of the national 
decommissioning program. This does not apply to information, such as 
trade secrets and commercial or financial information provided by the 
Agreement States, that is considered privileged or confidential. 
Information such as financial assurance and the status of 
decommissioning funding would need to be identified by the Agreement 
State as privileged or confidential, whereupon the NRC would withhold 
such information from public access and treat it as sensitive or non-
sensitive, per the considerations in 10 CFR 2.390 and 9.17. This does 
not apply to financial assurance or decommissioning funding information 
that is already available to the public. Although specific details of 
the funding mechanisms are treated as confidential, beneficial lessons 
learned regarding the improvement of decommissioning-related funding 
will be shared with the Agreement States.
    The public may examine, and have copied for a fee, publicly-
available documents, including the final supporting statement, at the 
NRC's Public Document Room, Room O-1F21, One White Flint North, 11555 
Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852. The OMB clearance requests 
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's 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 April 23, 2014. 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.
    Danielle Y. Jones, Desk Officer, Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs (3150-0206), NEOB-10202, Office of Management and
