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 November 20, 2012 (77 FR 69663).

and operators.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Holders of, and 
applicants for facility (i.e., nuclear power and non-power research and 
test reactor) operating licenses and individual operator licensees.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 236.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 101.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to

requalification of operators for nuclear reactors, as necessary to 
promote public health and safety. The reporting and recordkeeping 
requirements contained in 10 CFR part 55 are mandatory for the facility 
licensees and the applicants affected.
