The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (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. The NRC published a Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period on this information collection on June 20, 2014.

8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 34; the NEI is collecting information that will be submitted to the NRC. The NRC estimates that there are 30 nuclear power plants that will be affected and one organization (NEI).

9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: The NRC estimates the one-time burden associated with the filtering strategies rulemaking request for information will be 2,140 hours and 34 responses. This represents an average annual burden of 713.3 hours and 11.33 responses. The estimated annual cost is $193,018 (713.3 hours × $272/hr.).

The NRC is requesting specific information, including detailed cost estimates of alternatives, general assumptions from proprietary documents being made public and plant-specific information on BWR with Mark I and Mark II containments.
