Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request
Notice Of The Omb Review Of Information Collection And Solicitation Of Public Comment.
The 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 previously published a Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period on this information collection on December 18, 2007.
1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
2. The title of the information collection: DOE/NRC Form 740M, “Concise Note” and NUREG/BR-0006, Revision 6, “Instructions for Completing Nuclear Material Transaction Reports, (DOE/NRC Forms 741 and 740M).”
3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0057.
4. The form number if applicable: DOE/NRC Form 740M.
5. How often the collection is required: DOE/NRC Form 740M is requested as necessary to inform the U.S. or the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) of any qualifying statement or exception to any of the data contained in other reporting forms required under the US/IAEA Safeguards Agreement. On average, 15 licensees submit about 10 forms each per year, for a total of 150 forms annually.
6. Who will be required or asked to report: Persons licensed to possess specified quantities of special nuclear material or source material, and licensees of facilities on the U.S. eligible list who have been notified in writing by the NRC that they are subject to Part 75.
7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 150.
8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 15.
9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 113 hours (an average of .75 hours per response).
10. Abstract: Licensees affected by Part 75 and related sections of Parts 40, 50, 70, and 150 are required to submit DOE/NRC Form 740M to inform the U.S. or the IAEA of any qualifying statement or exception to any of the data contained in any of the other reporting forms required under the US/IAEA Safeguards Agreement. The use of Form 740M enables the NRC to collect, retrieve, and analyze, and submit the data to IAEA to fulfill its reporting responsibilities.
