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 June 6, 2013 (78 FR 34134).

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

2. The title of the information collection: The Office of Federal and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs Requests to Agreement States for Information.

3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0029.

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

5. How often the collection is required: One time or as needed.

6. Who will be required or asked to report: Thirty-Seven Agreement States who have signed Section 274(b) Agreements with the NRC.

7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 738.

8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 37.

10. Abstract: The Agreement States are asked on a one-time or as-needed basis to respond to a specific incident, to gather information on licensing and inspection practices or other technical and training-related information. In 2007, the NRC policy changed to begin funding training for Agreement State materials licensing and inspection staff and associated travel to attend courses offered through the NRC training program. The results of such information requests, which are authorized under Section 274(b) of the Atomic Energy Act, are utilized in part by the NRC in preparing responses to Congressional inquiries.

The Agreement State comments are also solicited in the areas of proposed procedures, implementing guidance, and in the development of new and revised regulations and policies.
