AGENCY:

Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

ACTION:

Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information collection request to the Office of Management and Start Printed Page 39133Budget (OMB) and solicitation of public comment.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (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: 10 CFR Part 36—Licenses and Radiation Safety Requirements for Irradiators.

2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0158.

3. How often the collection is required: Annually.

4. Who is required or asked to report: Irradiator licensees licensed by NRC or an Agreement State.

5. The number of annual respondents: 70 (10 NRC licensees and 60 Agreement State licensees).

6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 32,690.

7. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 36 contains requirements for the issuance of a license authorizing the use of sealed sources containing radioactive materials in irradiators used to irradiate objects or materials for a variety of purposes in research, industry, and other fields. The subparts cover specific requirements for obtaining a license or license exemption, design and performance criteria for irradiators; and radiation safety requirements for operating irradiators, including requirements for operator training, written operating and emergency procedures, personnel monitoring, radiation surveys, inspection, and maintenance. 10 CFR Part 36 also contains the recordkeeping and reporting requirements that are necessary to ensure that the irradiator is being safely operated so that it does not pose any danger to the health and safety of the general public and the irradiator employees.
