Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).
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).
1. Type of submission: Revision.
2. The title of the information collection: “10 CFR Part 35, Medical Use of Byproduct Material—Recognition of Specialty Boards, Proposed Rule and Burden Revision to NRC Form 313A, Training and Experience and Preceptor Statement.”
3. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 313A.
4. How often the collection is required: Part 35—one-time only; NRC Form 313A—upon application or amendment to a license.
5. Who will be required or asked to report: Specialty boards requesting the NRC to recognize their certification processes or recognized boards responding to NRC requests for information when being considered for delisting and materials licensees permitting board-certified individuals to work as radiation safety officers, authorized medical physicists, authorized nuclear pharmacists, or authorized users.
6. An estimate of the number of responses: 857.
7. The estimated number of annual respondents: 857.
8. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request:
10 CFR Part 35—341 reporting hours (0.4 hours per response); NRC Form 313A—889 recordkeeping hours (1.0 hours per individual).
9. An indication of whether Section 3507(d), Pub. L. 104-13 applies: Applicable.
10. Abstract: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend its regulations governing the medical use of byproduct material to change its requirements for recognition of specialty boards whose certifications may be used to demonstrate the adequacy of the training and experience of individuals to serve as radiation safety officers, authorized medical physicists, authorized nuclear pharmacists or authorized users. The proposed rule would also revise the requirements for demonstrating the adequacy of training and experience for pathways other than the board certification pathway. This rulemaking is necessary to address the training and experience issue for recognition of specialty board certifications.
