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 May 14, 2013.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Revision.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 50, 
``Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0011.
    4. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.
    5. How often the collection is required: As necessary in order for 
the NRC to meet its responsibilities to conduct a detailed review of 
applications for licenses and amendments thereto to construct and 
operate nuclear power plants, preliminary or final design approvals, 
design certifications, research and test facilities, reprocessing 
plants and other utilization and production facilities, licensed 
pursuant to the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act) and to 
monitor their activities. Reports are submitted daily, monthly, 
quarterly, annually, semi-annually, and on occasion.

applicants for nuclear power plants and research and test facilities.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 45,202.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 151.

(an average of 36.5 hrs/response) + 2.73M hours recordkeeping (an 
average of 18.1K hrs/recordkeeper).
    10. Abstract: Part 50 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR), ``Domestic Licensing of Production and 
Utilization Facilities,'' specifies technical information and data to 
be provided to the NRC or maintained by applicants and licensees so 
that the NRC may take determinations necessary to protect the health 
and safety of the public, in accordance with the Act. The reporting and 
recordkeeping requirements contained in 10 CFR part 50 are mandatory 
for the affected licensees and applicants. The NRC has removed 
information collections associated with the generic communications 
program from the part 50 clearance. The NRC intends to obtain a 
separate OMB clearance for generic communications. Public comment was 
solicited on the generic communications program on July 30, 2014 (79 FR
