Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and solicitation of public comment.
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: NRC Form 244, Registration Certificate—Use of Depleted Uranium under General License.
2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0031.
3. How often the collection is required: On occasion. NRC Form 244 is submitted when depleted uranium is received or transferred under a general license. Information on NRC Form 244 is collected and evaluated on a continuing basis as events occur.
4. Who is required or asked to report: Persons receiving, possessing, using, or transferring depleted uranium under the general license established in 10 CFR 40.25(a).
5. The number of annual respondents: 23.
6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 23.
7. Abstract: Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 40, establishes requirements for licenses for the receipt, possession, use, and transfer of radioactive source and byproduct material. The NRC Form 244 is used to report receipt and transfer of depleted uranium under general license, as required by Section 40.25. The registration certification information required by the NRC Form 244 is necessary to permit the NRC to make a determination on whether the possession, use, and transfer of depleted uranium source and byproduct material is in conformance with the Commission's regulations for protection of public health and safety.
