Nuclear Regulatory Commission.


Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and solicitation of public comment.


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 35).

Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted:

1. The title of the information collection: Suspicious Activity Reporting Using the Protected Web Server (PWS).

2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-XXXX.

3. How often the collection is required: On occasion. Reporting is done on a voluntary basis, as suspicious incidents occur.

4. Who is required or asked to report: Nuclear power reactor licensees provide the majority of reports, but other entities that may voluntarily send reports include fuel facilities, independent spent fuel storage installations, decommissioned power reactors, power reactors under construction, research and test reactors, agreement states, non-agreement states, as well as departments of health, medical centers, steel mills, and radiographers.

5. The number of annual respondents: 50.

6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 678 hours.

7. Abstract: The NRC licensees voluntarily report information on suspicious incidents on an ad-hoc basis, as these incidents occur. This information is shared with authorized nuclear industry officials and Federal, State, and local government agencies using PWS. Information provided by licensees is considered OFFICIAL USE ONLY and is not made public.

Submit, by October 7, 2013, comments that address the following questions:

1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical utility?

2. Is the burden estimate accurate?

3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected?

4. How can the burden of the information collection be minimized, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology?
