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

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and 
solicitation of public comment.


SUMMARY: The NRC has recently submitted to Office of Management and 
Budget (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 28, 2014.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 54,

``Requirements for Renewal of Operating Licenses for Nuclear Power 
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0155.
    4. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    5. How often the collection is required: There is a one-time 
application for any licensee wishing to renew the operating license for 
its nuclear power plant. There is a one-time requirement for each 
licensee with a renewed operating license to submit a letter 
documenting the completion of inspection and testing activities. All 
holders of renewed licenses must perform yearly record keeping.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Commercial nuclear 
power plant licensees who wish to renew their operating licenses and 
holders of renewed licenses.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 6.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 58 (52 recordkeepers 
+ 6 responses (2 license renewal applications expected on average + 4 
letters documenting the completion of inspection and testing activities 
expected on average)).
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 220,340 hours (168,340 hours of 
reporting + 52,000 hours of recordkeeping).
    10. Abstract: Part 54 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR), establishes license renewal requirements for 
commercial nuclear power plants and describes the information that 
licensees must submit to the NRC when applying for a license renewal. 
The application must contain information on how the licensee will 
manage the detrimental effects of age-related degradation on certain 
plant systems, structures, and components so as to continue the plant's 
safe operation during the renewal term. The NRC needs this information 
to determine whether the licensee's actions will be effective in 
assuring the plants' continued safe operation during the period of 
extended operation.
    Holders of renewed licenses must retain in an auditable and 
retrievable form, for the term of the renewed operating license, all 
information and documentation required to document compliance with 10 
CFR part 54. The NRC needs access to this information for continuing 
effective regulatory oversight.

consideration cannot be given to comments received after this date.
