The NRC regulations in 10 CFR Part 26 prescribe requirements to establish, implement, and maintain FFD programs at affected licensees and other entities. The objectives of these requirements are to provide reasonable assurance that persons subject to the rule are trustworthy, reliable, and not under the influence of any substance, legal or illegal, or mentally or physically impaired from any cause, which in any way could adversely affect their ability to safely and competently perform their duties. These requirements also provide reasonable assurance that the effects of fatigue and degraded alertness on individual's abilities to safely and competently perform their duties are managed commensurate with maintaining public health and safety. The information collections required by Part 26 are necessary to properly manage FFD programs and to enable effective and efficient regulatory oversight of affected licensees other entities. These licensees and other entities must perform certain tasks, maintain records, and submit reports to comply with Part 26 drug and alcohol provisions and fatigue management requirements. These records and reports are necessary to enable regulatory inspection and evaluation of a licensee's or entity's compliance with NRC regulations, its FFD performance, and of any significant FFD-related event to help maintain public health and safety, promote the common defense and security, and protect the environment.
The NRC is requesting emergency review of the information collection because this information is essential to the mission of the agency and is needed before the expiration of the normal time limits under the Office of Management and Budget’s regulations at 5 CFR 1320 that implement the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The NRC cannot reasonably comply with the normal clearance procedures because an unanticipated event (COVID-19 PHE) has occurred. The information being collected is the minimum necessary to allow NRC staff to ensure that requested exemptions are authorized by law and will not endanger life or property or the common defense and security and are otherwise in the public interest.
