Comment Request

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information 
collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and 
solicitation of public comment.


SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) invites public 
comment about our intention to request the OMB's approval for renewal 
of an existing information collection that is summarized below. We are 
required to publish this notice in the Federal Register notice under 
the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
Chapter 35).
    Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted:
    1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 73, 
``Physical Protection of Plants and Materials.''
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0002.
    3. How often the collection is required: On occasion, with the 
exception of the initial submittal of revised Cyber Security Plans, 
Security Plans, Safeguards Contingency Plans, and Security Training and 
Qualification Plans. Required reports are submitted and evaluated as 
events occur.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Nuclear power reactor 
licensees, licensed under part 50 or 52 of Title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (10 CFR), who possess, use, import, export, 
transport, or deliver to a carrier for transport, special nuclear 
material; actively decommissioning reactor licensees, Category I fuel 
facilities; Category II and III facilities; non-power reactors 
(research and test reactors); other nuclear materials licensees; and 
state and Tribal contacts.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 581.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 543,280 (21,255 hours reporting + 486,535 hours 
recordkeeping + 35,490 hours third party disclosure).
    7. Abstract: The NRC's regulations in 10 CFR part 73 prescribe 
requirements to establish and maintain a physical protection system and 
security organization with capabilities for protection of (1) Special 
nuclear material (SNM) at fixed sites, (2) SNM in transit, and (3) 
plants in which SNM is used. The objective is to ensure that activities 
involving special nuclear material are consistent with interests of 
common defense and security and that these activities do not constitute 
an unreasonable risk to public health and safety. The information in 
the reports and records submitted by licensees is used by the NRC staff 
to ensure that the health and safety of the public and the environment 
are protected, and licensee possession and use of special nuclear 
material is in compliance with license and regulatory requirements.
    Submit, by December 5, 2014, comments that address the following 
    1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC 
to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical 
    2. Is the burden estimate accurate?
    3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of 
the information to be collected?
    4. How can the burden of the information collection be minimized, 
including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology?
