II. Background

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, “NRC Forms 366, 366A, and 366B, Licensee Event Report.” 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 September 16, 2019 (84 FR 48650).

1. The title of the information collection: NRC Forms 366, 366A, and 366B, Licensee Event Report.

2. OMB approval number: 3150-0104.

3. Type of submission: Revision.

4. The form number if applicable: NRC Forms 366, 366A and 366B.

5. How often the collection is required or requested: As needed per 10 CFR 50.73, “Licensee event report system.”

6. Who will be required or asked to respond: The holder of an operating license under 10 CFR part 50 or a combined license under 10 CFR part 52 (after the Commission has made the finding under section 52.103(g)).

7. The estimated number of annual responses: 350.

8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 98 (number of operating nuclear units in the U.S.).

9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: The total estimated burden for completing Licensee Event Reports is 28,000 hours (based on 80 hours for each of 350 reports).

10. Abstract: Part of the NRC's function is to license and regulate the operation of commercial nuclear power plants to ensure protection of public health and safety and the environment in accordance with the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 (the Act) as amended. In order for the NRC to carry out these responsibilities, licensees must report significant events in accordance with section 50.73, so that the NRC can evaluate the events to determine what actions, if any, are warranted to ensure protection of public health and safety or the environment. Section 50.73 requires reporting on NRC Forms 366, 366A, and 366B.
