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 27, 2012 (77 FR 44290).

3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0031.
4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 244.
5. 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.

10. Abstract: Part 40 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), 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.
