10. Abstract: The NRC is proposing to amend its regulations to implement a National Source Tracking System for certain sealed sources. The amendments would require licensees to report certain transactions involving nationally tracked sources to the National Source Tracking System. These transactions would include manufacture, transfer, receipt, disassembly, or disposal of the nationally tracked source. The amendment would require each licensee to provide its initial inventory of nationally tracked sources to the National Source Tracking System and annually reconcile the information in the system with the licensee's actual inventory. The rule would also require manufacturers of nationally tracked sources to assign a unique serial number to each source. This information collection is mandatory and will be used to populate the National Source Tracking System. Start Printed Page 33321
