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.

Information in the applications, reports, and records is used by the NRC staff to ensure that the health and safety of the public is protected and that the licensees' possession and use of the radioactive sources and byproduct materials is in compliance with the license and the regulatory requirements.
