II. Background

    Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted a request for renewal of 
an existing collection of information to OMB for review entitled, NRC 
Form 536, ``Operator Licensing Examination Data.'' 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 April 9, 2020 (85 FR 19965).
    1. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 536, 
``Operator Licensing Examination Data.''
    2. OMB approval number: 3150-0131.
    3. Type of submission: Extension.
    4. The form number if applicable: 536.
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: Annually.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: (a) All holders of 
operating licenses for nuclear power reactors under the provision of 
title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) part 50, 
``Domestic Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,'' except 
those that have permanently ceased operations and have certified that 
fuel has been permanently removed from the reactor vessel, (b) All 
holders of, or applicants for, a limited work authorization, early site 
permit, or combined licenses issued under 10 CFR part 52, ``Licenses, 
Certifications and Approval for Nuclear Power Plants.''

    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 60.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 60.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
comply with the information collection requirement or request: 45.
    10. Abstract: The NRC is requesting renewal of its clearance to 
annually request all commercial power reactor licensees and applicants 
for an operating license to voluntarily send to the NRC: (1) Their 
projected number of candidates for initial operator licensing 
examinations; (2) the estimated dates of the examinations, and (3) if 
the examinations will be facility developed or NRC developed. This 
information is used to plan budgets and resources in regard to operator 
examination scheduling in order to meet the needs of the nuclear power 
industry.
