AGENCY:

Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION:

Notice of the OMB review of information collection and solicitation of public comment.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (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 May 23, 2011 (76 FR 29804).

1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.

2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 75, Safeguards on Nuclear Material Implementation of US/IAEA Agreement.

3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0055.

4. The form number if applicable: Not Applicable.

5. How often the collection is required: Reporting is done when specified events occur. Recordkeeping for nuclear material accounting and control information is done in accordance with specific instructions.

6. Who will be required or asked to report: Licensees of facilities on the U.S. eligible list who have been selected by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for reporting or recordkeeping activities.

7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 8 (2 responses for reporting + 6 recordkeepers).

8. The estimated number of annual respondents: Six, two of which perform both reporting and recordkeeping and four of which perform recordkeeping only.

9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 2,400 (6 Respondents x 400 hours per response).

10. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 75 requires selected licensees to permit inspections by IAEA representatives, give immediate notice to the NRC in specified situations involving the possibility of loss of nuclear material, and give notice for imports and exports of specified amounts of nuclear material. These licensees will also follow written material accounting and control procedures, although actual reporting of transfer and material balance records to the IAEA will be done through the U.S. State system (Nuclear Materials Management and Safeguards System, collected under OMB clearance numbers 3150-0003, 3150-0004, 3150-0057, and 3150-0058.) The NRC needs this information to implement its responsibilities under the US/IAEA agreement.
