In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35), the NRC is requesting public comment on its intention to request the OMB's approval for the information collection summarized below.
1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 37, Physical Protection of Category 1 and Category 2 Quantities of Radioactive Material.
2. OMB approval number: 3150-0214.
3. Type of submission: Extension.
4. The form number, if applicable: Standard Fingerprint Form, FD-258.
5. How often the collection is required or requested: One time for initial compliance notifications and fingerprints for the reviewing officials; and as needed for implementation notifications, event notifications, notifications of shipments of radioactive material, and fingerprinting of new employees.
6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Licensees that are authorized to possess and use category 1 or category 2 quantities of radioactive material.
7. The estimated number of annual responses: 103,983.
8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 1,500 (300 NRC Licensees + 1,200 Agreement State Licensees).
9. The estimated number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 138,570.2 hours (1932.4 hours reporting + 85,644.2 hours Start Printed Page 35996recordkeeping + 50,993.6 hours third-party disclosure).
10. Abstract: Part 37 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), contains security requirements for the use of category 1 and category 2 quantities of radioactive material. Licensees are required to: (1) Develop procedures for implementation of the security provisions; (2) develop a security plan that describes how security is being implemented; (3) conduct training on the procedures and security plan; (4) conduct background investigations for those individuals permitted access to category 1 or category 2 quantities of radioactive material; (5) coordinate with LLEAs so the LLEAs would be better prepared to respond in an emergency; (6) conduct preplanning and coordination activities before shipping radioactive material; and (7) implement security measures for the protection of the radioactive material. Licensees are required to promptly report any attempted or actual theft or diversion of the radioactive material. Licensees are required to keep copies of the security plan, procedures, background investigation records, training records, and documentation that certain activities have occurred. The NRC uses the information required by 10 CFR part 37 to fulfill its responsibilities to respond to, investigate, and correct situations that adversely affect public health and safety or the common defense and security.

1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical utility?
2. Is the estimate of the burden of the information collection accurate?
3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected?
4. How can the burden of the information collection on respondents be minimized, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology?Start Signature
