The NRC is revising its regulations to update a telephone number for the Office of Information Services and an NRC Web site location. The Web site contains detailed guidance on making electronic submissions to the agency. This guidance discusses, among other topics, the formats the NRC can accept, the use of electronic signatures, and the treatment of nonpublic information.
Environmental Impact: Categorical Exclusion
The NRC has determined that this final rule is the type of action described in categorical exclusion 10 CFR 51.22(c)(1) and (2). Therefore, neither an environmental impact statement nor an environmental assessment has been prepared for this final rule.
Paperwork Reduction Act Statement
This final rule does not contain a new or amended information collection requirement subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).
Public Protection Notification
If a means used to impose an information collection does not display a currently valid OMB control number, the NRC may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, the information collection.
A regulatory analysis has not been prepared for this final rule. This final rule makes only minor administrative changes to the regulations that reference a telephone number and an NRC Web site, and imposes no burden on licensees. Therefore, a regulatory analysis is not necessary.
The NRC has determined that these amendments do not involve any provisions which would impose backfits as defined in 10 CFR 50.109(a)(1); therefore a backfit analysis is not necessary.
Congressional Review Act
In accordance with the Congressional Review Act, the NRC has determined that this action is not a major rule and has verified this determination with the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs of OMB.
Because these amendments deal solely with agency organization and procedure, and represent minor administrative matters which do not raise any significant policy or regulatory issue, the NRC has determined that notice and comment is not necessary under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(A), and that in any event there is good cause for dispensing with such notice and comment under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3)(B). In addition, the NRC has determined that good cause exists for making the rule immediately effective upon publication, as provided for under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), because the amendments represent minor administrative matters which do not raise any significant policy or regulatory issue and do not impose any significant regulatory requirement upon any regulated entity or person.Start Amendment Part
