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


The 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.

1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.

2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 62—“Criteria and Procedures for Emergency Access to non-Federal and Regional Low-level Waste Disposal Facilities.”

3. The form number, if applicable: ­N/A.

4. How often the collection is required: Requests are made only when access to a non-Federal low-level waste disposal facility is denied, which results in a threat to public health and safety and/or common defense and security.

5. Who is required or asked to report: Generators of low-level waste who are denied access to a non-Federal low-level waste facility.

6. An estimate of the number of responses: It is estimated that up to one response would be received every three years.

7. The estimated number of annual respondents: No requests for emergency access have been received to date. It is estimated that up to one request would be made every three years.

8. An estimate of the number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: It is estimated that 680 hours would be required to prepare the request, or approximately 227 hours per year.

9. An indication of whether Section 3507(d), Pub. L. 104-13 applies: Not applicable.

10. Abstract: Part 62 sets out the information which will have to be provided to the NRC by any low-level waste generator seeking emergency access to an operating low-level waste disposal facility. The information is required to allow NRC to determine if denial of disposal constitutes a serious and immediate threat to public health and safety or common defense and security.
