SUMMARY:

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.

2. The title of the information collection: DOE/NRC Form 741, Nuclear Material Transaction Report and NUREG/BR-0006, Instructions for Completing Nuclear Material Transaction Reports.

3. The form number if applicable: DOE/NRC Form 741.

4. How often the collection is required: As occasioned by special nuclear material or source material transfers, receipts or inventory changes that meet certain criteria. Licensees range from not submitting any forms to submitting over 5,000 forms in a year.

5. Who will be required or asked to report: Persons licensed to process 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 Commission that they are subject to Part 75.
