Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted a request for renewal of an existing collection of information to OMB for review entitled, “Criteria and Procedures for Emergency Access to Non-Federal and Regional Low-Level Disposal Facilities.” 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 December 1, 2014 (79 FR 71133).

1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 62, “Criteria and Procedures for Emergency Access to Non-Federal and Regional Low-Level Waste Disposal Facilities.”

2. OMB approval number: 3150-0143.

3. Type of submission: Extension.

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

5. How often the collection is required or requested: The collection would only be required upon application for a Commission emergency access determination when access to a non-Federal or regional Low-Level Waste Disposal facility is denied, which results in an immediate public health and safety and/or common defense and security concern.

6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Generators of Low-Level Radioactive Waste, or the Governor of a State on behalf of any generator or generators located in his or her State who are denied access to a Non-Federal or regional low-level radioactive wastes and who wish to request emergency access for disposal of Non-Federal or regional Low-Level Waste Disposal facility pursuant to part 62 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR).Start Printed Page 20270

10. Abstract: Part 62 sets out the information which must be provided to the NRC by any low-level waste generator or Governor of a State on behalf of generators seeking emergency access to an operating low-level waste disposal facility. The information is required to allow the NRC to determine if denial of disposal constitutes a serious and immediate threat to public health and safety or common defense and security. Part 62 also provides that the commission may grant an exemption from the requirements in this Part upon application of an interested person or upon its own initiative.
