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 a new 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 749, “Manual License Verification Report”.
2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-XXXX.
3. How often the collection is required: On occasion. Licensees subject to 10 CFR part 37, “Physical Protection of Byproduct Material” license verification requirements must verify the legitimacy of the license with the issuing agency prior to transferring Start Printed Page 67205radioactive materials in quantities of concern.
4. Who is required or asked to report: Licensees are required to complete a license verification under the circumstances noted in 3 above. A License Verification System (LVS) has been developed, providing an electronic method for fulfilling this requirement. In cases where a licensee is unable to use the LVS to perform a verification, they will provide NRC Form 749 for manual license verification.
5. The number of annual respondents: 91.
6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 9.1 hours.
7. Abstract: When a licensee is unable to use the License Verification System to perform their license verification prior to transfer, a manual process has been developed, in which licensees submit the NRC Form 749, “Manual License Verification Report.” The form provides the information necessary for the issuing agencies to perform the verification on behalf of the transferring licensee.
