Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information collection request to OMB and solicitation of public comment.

Abstract: With NRC Forms 366, 366A, and 366B, the NRC collects reports of the types of reactor events and problems that are believed to be significant and useful to the NRC in its efforts to identify and resolve possible threats to the public safety. These forms are designed to provide the information necessary for engineering studies of operational anomalies and trends and patterns analysis of abnormal occurrences. The same information is used for other analytic procedures that aid in identifying accident precursors.

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