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 August 12, 2014.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Revision.
    2. The title of the information collection: Reports Concerning 
Possible Non-Routine Emergency Generic Problems.
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0012.
    4. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    5. How often the collection is required: On occasion.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Nuclear power reactor 
licensees, nonpower reactors, and materials applicants and licensees.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 231
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 231
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 83,100 hours annually.
    10. Abstract: The NRC is requesting approval authority to collect 
information concerning possible nonroutine generic problems which would 
require prompt action from the NRC to preclude potential threats to 
public health and safety. During the conduct of normal program 
activities, the NRC becomes aware of an emergent event or issue that 
may be identified in its licensing, inspection, and enforcement 
programs. In addition, reportable occurrences, or unusual events, 
equipment failures, construction

[[Page 71133]]

problems, and issues discovered or raised during safety reviews are 
brought to the attention of the NRC through licensee reporting 
procedures and the safety review process. The emergent event or issue 
may present a situation in which the NRC does not have enough 
information to support regulatory decision making regarding an 
appropriate course of action to address the event or issue.
    If the NRC determines that an event or issue may have or has the 
potential for an immediate impact upon public health, safety, common 
defense, and/or the environment, the agency will prepare a bulletin or 
other form of generic communication that requires licensees and/or 
permit holders to respond within a specified period with information 
that would support agency evaluation and regulatory decision making. 
The bulletin may request licensees and permit holders to conduct 
evaluations, perform tests, and provide specified information within a 
prescribed time frame.
    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 December 31, 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
