Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Notice of the OMB review of information collection and solicitation of public comment.
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 November 23, 2012 (77 FR 70192).
1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
2. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 664, General Licensee Registration.
3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0198.
4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 664.
5. How often the collection is required: Annually.
6. Who will be required or asked to report: General Licensees of the NRC who possess certain generally licensed devices subject to annual registration authorized pursuant to section 31.5 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR).
7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 633.
8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 633.
9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 211 hours (633 annual responses × 1/3 hour).
10. Abstract: NRC Form 664 is used by NRC general licensees to make reports regarding certain generally licensed devices subject to annual registration. The registration program allows NRC to better track general licensees, so that they can be contacted or inspected as necessary, and to make sure that generally licensed devices can be identified even if lost or damaged. Also, the registration program ensures that general licensees are aware of and understand the requirements for the possession, use and disposal of devices containing byproduct material. Greater awareness helps to ensure that general licensees will comply with the regulatory requirements for proper handling and disposal of generally licensed devices and would reduce the potential for incidents that could result in unnecessary radiation exposure to the public and contamination of property.
