U.S. 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). 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 published a Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period on this information collection on December 10, 2008.

1. Type of Submission, New, Revision, or Extension: Extension.

2. The Title of the Information Collection: 10 CFR Part 30—Rules of General Applicability to Domestic Licensing of Byproduct Material. Current OMB Approval Number: 3150-0017.

3. The Form Number if Applicable: N/A.Start Printed Page 10784

4. How Often the Collection is Required: Required reports are collected and evaluated on a continuing basis as events occur. There is a one-time submittal of information to receive a license. Renewal applications are submitted every 10 years. Information submitted in previous applications may be referenced without being resubmitted. In addition, recordkeeping must be performed on an on-going basis.

5. Who Will be Required or Asked to Report: All persons applying for or holding a license to manufacture, produce, transfer, receive, acquire, own, possess, or use radioactive byproduct material.

6. An Estimate of the Number of Annual Responses: 38,407 (6,623 NRC Licensee responses (2,754 Responses + 3,869 Recordkeepers) and 31,784 Agreement State Licensee responses (13,213 Responses + 18,571 Recordkeepers)).

7. The Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 22,440 (3,869 NRC licensees and 18,571 Agreement State licensees).

8. An Estimate of the Total Number of Hours Needed Annually to Complete the Requirement or Request: 314,844 (NRC licensees 54,250 hours (24,633 reporting + 29,617 recordkeeping) and Agreement State licensees 260,594 hours (118,597 reporting + 141,997 recordkeeping)).

9. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 30 establishes requirements that are applicable to all persons in the United States governing domestic licensing of radioactive byproduct material. The application, reporting and recordkeeping requirements are necessary to permit the NRC to make a determination whether the possession, use, and transfer of byproduct material is in conformance with the Commission's regulations for protection of the public health and safety.
