Start Preamble

AGENCY:

U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

ACTION:

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

SUMMARY:

The 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: “NRC Forms 366, 366A, 366B, `Licensee Event Report' ”.

2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0104.

3. How often the collection is required: On occasion, as defined reactor events are reportable as they occur.

4. Who is required or asked to report: Holders of operating licenses for commercial nuclear power plants.

5. The number of annual respondents: 104.

6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 32,000 (25,600 reporting + 6,400 recordkeeping). This is estimated to be 80 hours for each of 400 reports annually.

7. 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 health and safety, or to the environment. The information reported on NRC Forms 366, 366A, and 366B is used by the NRC to confirm licensing bases, study potentially generic safety problems, assess trends and patterns of operating experience, monitor performance, identify precursors of more significant events, and provide operating experience feedback to the industry. 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.

Submit, by June 1, 2010, 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?
