The NRC regulations in 10 CFR part 73 prescribe requirements to establish and maintain a physical protection system and security organization with capabilities for protection of: (1) Special nuclear material (SNM) at fixed sites, (2) SNM in transit, and (3) plants in which SNM is used. 10 CFR part 73 contains reporting and recordkeeping requirements which are necessary to help ensure that an adequate level of protection is provided for nuclear facilities and nuclear material, such as: Development and maintenance of security documents including a physical security plan, a training and qualification plan, a safeguards contingency plan, a cyber security plan, and security implementing procedures; notifications to the NRC regarding safeguards and cyber security events; notifications to state governors and tribes of shipments of irradiated reactor fuel; and requirements for conducting criminal history records checks of individuals granted unescorted access to a nuclear power facility, a non-power reactor, or access to Safeguards Information. The objective is to ensure that activities involving special nuclear material are consistent with interests of common defense and security and that these activities do not constitute an unreasonable risk to public health and safety. The information in the reports and records submitted by licensees is used by the NRC staff to ensure that the health and safety of the public and the environment are protected, and licensee possession and use of special nuclear material is in compliance with license and regulatory requirements.

The estimated burden has decreased from 541,406 hours to 495,892 hours, for a total decrease of 45,514 hours. The increase in reporting estimates is due to: (1) an increase in transportation operations; (2) more accurately capturing required reporting for spent fuel and special nuclear material operations; and (3) increase in reporting of Safeguards events due to the changing types of licensees. The decreased third party estimates can largely be attributed to: (1) Most licensees changed SGI-M to SGI for documents maintained, (2) changes in transportation, and (3) the number of power reactor sites decreased, from 60 in 2018 to 56 in 2021.
