Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for the 
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 on June 20, 2014.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: New.
    2. The title of the information collection: Request for Information 
Related to the Filtering Strategies and Severe Accident Management of 
Boiling Water Reactors (BWR) with Mark I and Mark II Containments 
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-XXXX.
    4. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    5. How often the collection is required: Once.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: The Nuclear Energy 
Institute (NEI) has been asked to respond for the industry. All BWR 
with Mark I and Mark II containments are expected to provide 
information to NEI.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 34.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 34; the NEI is 
collecting information that will be submitted to the NRC. The NRC 
estimates that there are 30 nuclear power plants that will be affected 
and one organization (NEI).
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: The NRC estimates the one-time 
burden associated with the filtering strategies rulemaking request for 
information will be 2,140 hours and 34 responses. This represents an 
average annual burden of 713.3 hours and 11.33 responses. The estimated 
annual cost is $193,018 (713.3 hours x $272/hr.).
    10. Abstract: The Information being collected is for the Filtering 
Strategies and Severe Accident Management of BWR with Mark I and Mark 
II Containment rulemaking. The NRC is requesting specific information, 
including detailed cost estimates of alternatives, general assumptions 
from proprietary documents being made public and plant-specific 
information on BWR with Mark I and Mark II containments.
