Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review; Comment Request

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and 
solicitation of public comment.


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 March 8, 2013 (78 FR 15054).
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: New.
    2. The title of the information collection: Reactor Oversight 
Process External Survey.
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-XXXX.
    4. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    5. How often the collection is required: Once every 2 years.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Members of the public, 
licensees, and other interested stakeholders.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 13.3.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 13.3.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 13.3.
    10. Abstract: The mission of the NRC is to regulate the nation's 
civilian use of byproduct, source, and special nuclear materials to 
ensure adequate protection of public health and safety, to promote the 
common defense and security, and to protect the environment. One way to 
support this mission is through the implementation of the Reactor 
Oversight Process (ROP), which is the agency's program to inspect, 
measure, and assess the safety performance of commercial nuclear power 
plants and to respond to any decline in performance.
    The NRC seeks to achieve continuous improvement of the ROP through 
the ROP self-assessment process. The CY 2013 and 2015 ROP self-
assessments will rely, in part, on direct feedback from external 
stakeholders. The information collected through the voluntary survey 
will support this purpose, and a summary of the survey results will be 
included in the annual ROP self-assessment report to the Commission.
    The public may examine and have copied for a fee publicly available 
documents, including the final supporting statement, at the NRC's 
Public Document Room, Room O-1F21, One White Flint North, 11555 
Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852. The OMB clearance requests 
are available at the NRC's Web site: http://www.nrc.gov/public-involve/doc-comment/omb/. The document will be available on the NRC's home page 
site for 60 days after the signature date of this notice.
    Comments and questions should be directed to the OMB reviewer 
listed below by July 10, 2013. Comments received after this date will 
be considered if it is practical to do so, but assurance of 
consideration cannot be given to comments received after this date.
