Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION:

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

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has recently submitted to OMB for review the following proposal for the collection of Start Printed Page 58543information 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. The NRC published a Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period on this information collection on June 17, 2011.

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

2. The title of the information collection: Voluntary Reporting of Performance Indicators.

3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0195.

4. The form number if applicable: N/A.

5. How often the collection is required: Quarterly.

6. Who will be required or asked to report: Power reactor licensees.

7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 420.

8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 105.

9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 85,300 hours (84,000 hours of reporting and 1,300 hours of recordkeeping).

10. Abstract: As part of a joint industry-NRC initiative, the NRC receives information submitted voluntarily by power reactor licensees regarding selected performance attributes known as performance indicators (PIs). PIs are objective measures of the performance of licensee systems or programs. The NRC uses PI information and inspection results in its Reactor Oversight Process to make decisions about plant performance and regulatory response. Licensees transmit PIs electronically to reduce burden on themselves and the NRC.
