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 July 7, 2011 (76 FR 39907).

4. The form number if applicable: N/A.

5. How often the collection is required: Submission is a one-time requirement which has been completed by all current licensees. However, licensees may submit amendments or revisions to the plans as necessary. In addition, specified inventory and material status reports are required annually or semi-annually. Other reports are submitted as events occur.

6. Who will be required or asked to report: Persons licensed under 10 CFR part 70 who possess and use certain forms and quantities of Special Nuclear Material (SNM).

9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: An annual total of 8,589 hours (989 hours for reporting and 7,600 hours for recordkeeping). The average annual burden per respondent for reporting is 47 hours. The average annual burden per recordkeeping for the 110 record keepers is 61 hours.

Abstract: 10 CFR part 74 establishes requirements for material control and accounting of SNM, and specific performance-based regulations for licensees authorized to possess, use and produce strategic special nuclear material, and special nuclear material of moderate strategic significance and low strategic significance. The information is used by the NRC to make licensing and regulatory determinations concerning material control and accounting of special nuclear material and to satisfy obligations of the United States to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Submission or retention of the information is mandatory for persons subject to the requirements.
