Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review; Comment Request

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and

SUMMARY: 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 September 21, 2012 (77 FR 58585).
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 531, ``Request 
for Taxpayer Identification Number.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0188.
    4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 531.
    5. How often the collection is required: One time from each 
applicant or individual to enable the Department of the Treasury to 
process electronic payments or collect debts owed to the Government.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: All individuals doing

with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, including contractors and 
recipients of credit, licenses, permits, and benefits.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 300.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 300.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 25.
    10. Abstract: The Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 requires 
that agencies collect taxpayer identification numbers (TINs) from 
individuals who do business with the Government, including contractors 
and recipients of credit, licenses, permits, and benefits. The TIN will 
be used to process all electronic payments (refunds) made to licensees 
by electronic funds transfer by the Department of the Treasury. The 
Department of the Treasury will use the TIN to determine whether the 
refund can be used to administratively offset any delinquent debts 
reported to the Treasury by other government agencies. In addition, the 
TIN will be used to collect and report to the Department of the 
Treasury any delinquent indebtedness arising out of the licensee's or 
applicant's relationship with the NRC.
