AGENCY:

U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

ACTION:

Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and solicitation of public comment.

SUMMARY:

The NRC invites public comment about our intention to request the OMB's approval for renewal of an existing information collection that is summarized below. We are required to publish this notice in the Federal Register under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).

Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted:

1. The title of the information collection: “DOE/NRC Form 741 (Nuclear Material Transaction Report) and Associated Instructions (NUREG/BR-0006)”

2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0003.

3. How often the collection is required: Form 741 is submitted when specified events occur (nuclear material or source material transfers, receipts, or inventory changes).

4. Who is required or asked to report: Persons licensed to possess specified quantities of special nuclear material or source material. Any licensee who ships, receives, or otherwise undergoes an inventory change of special nuclear or source material is required to submit a Form 741 to document the change.

5. The number of annual respondents: For DOE/NRC Form 741, there are approximately 400 respondents annually.

6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 20,616 hours.

7. Abstract: NRC is required to collect nuclear material transaction information for domestic safeguards use and to make it available to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Licensees use Form 741 to make inventory and accounting reports for certain source or special nuclear material, or for transfer or receipt of 1 kilogram or more of source material. This form enables NRC to collect, retrieve, analyze, and submit the data to IAEA to fulfill its reporting responsibilities.
