Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review; Comment Request

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

[[Page 62209]]

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 on July 2, 2014.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 100 
``Reactor Site Criteria.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0093.
    4. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.
    5. How often the collection is required: As necessary in order for 
the NRC to assess the adequacy of proposed seismic design bases and the 
design bases for other site hazards for nuclear power and test reactors 
constructed and licensed in accordance with parts 50 and 52 of Title 10 
of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), and the Atomic Energy Act 
of 1954, as amended.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Applicants and 
licensees for nuclear power and test reactors.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 2.3.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 2.3.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: Annually, 167,900 hours (73,000 
per application x 2.3 applications).
    10. Abstract: Part 100, A Reactor Site Criteria, establishes 
approval requirements for proposed sites for the purpose of 
constructing and operating stationary power and testing reactors 
pursuant to the provisions of 10 CFR parts 50 and 52. These reactors 
are required to be sited, designed, constructed, and maintained to 
withstand geologic hazards, such as faulting, seismic hazards, and the 
maximum credible earthquake, to protect the health and safety of the 
public and the environment. Non-seismic siting criteria must also be 
evaluated. Non-seismic siting criteria include such factors as 
population density, the proximity of man-related hazards, and site 
atmospheric dispersion characteristics. The NRC uses the information 
required by 10 CFR part 100 to evaluate whether natural phenomena and 
potential man-made hazards will be appropriately accounted for in the 
design of nuclear power and test reactors.
    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 November 17, 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.
    Vlad Dorjets, Desk Officer, Office of Information and Regulatory 
Affairs (3150-0093), NEOB-10202, Office of Management and Budget, 
Washington, DC 20503.
    Comments can also be emailed to [email protected] or 
submitted by telephone at 202-395-7315.
    The Acting NRC's Clearance Officer is Brenda Miles, 301-415-7884.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 10th day of October 2014.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
