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 August 2, 2013 (78 FR 47009).

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

2. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 327, “Special Nuclear Material (SNM) and Source Material Physical Inventory Summary Report” and NUREG/BR-0096, “Instructions and Guidance for Completing Physical Inventory Summary Reports.”

3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0139.

4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 327.

5. How often the collection is required: Certain licensees possessing Start Printed Page 70354strategic SNM are required to report inventories every 6 months. Licensees possessing SNM of moderate strategic significance must report every 9 months. Licensees possessing SNM of low strategic significance must report annually, except two licensees must report their dynamic inventories every 2 months and a static inventory on an annual basis.

6. Who will be required or asked to report: Fuel facility licensees possessing special nuclear material, i.e., enriched uranium, plutonium or U-233.

7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 35.

8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 7.

The data is used by NRC to assess licensee material control and accounting programs and to confirm the absence of (or detect the occurrence of) SNM theft or diversion. NUREG/BR-0096 provides specific guidance and instructions for completing the form in accordance with the requirements appropriate for a particular licensee.
