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 under the 
provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 
    Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted:

Criteria and Procedures for Emergency Access to Non-Federal and 
Regional Low-Level Waste Disposal Facilities.
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0143.
    3. How often the collection is required: The collection would only 
be required upon application for a Commission emergency access 
determination when access to a non-Federal or regional Low-Level Waste 
Disposal facility is denied, which results in an immediate public 
health and safety and/or common defense and security concern.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Generators of low-level 
radioactive waste, or the Governor of a State on behalf of any 
generator or generators located in his or her State who are denied 
access to a non-Federal or regional low-level radioactive wastes and 
who wish to request emergency access for disposal of non-Federal or 
regional Low-Level Waste Disposal facility pursuant to 10 CFR part 62.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 1 (estimate).
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement

provided to the NRC by any low-level waste generator or Governor of a 
State on behalf of generators seeking emergency access to an operating 
low-level waste disposal facility. The information is required to allow 
the NRC to determine if denial of disposal constitutes a serious and 
immediate threat to public health and safety or common defense and 
security. 10 CFR part 62 also provides that the Commission may grant an 
exemption from the requirements in this Part upon application of an 
interested person or upon its own initiative.
