Background

Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted a request for renewal of an existing collection of information to OMB for review entitled, “10 CFR part 35, Medical Use of Byproduct Material.” 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 February 1, 2017 (82 FR 8959).

1. The title of the information collection:10 CFR part 35, Medical Use of Byproduct Material.”

2. OMB approval number: 3150-0010.

3. Type of submission: Extension.

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

5. How often the collection is required or requested: Reports of medical events, doses to an embryo/fetus or nursing child, or leaking source are reportable on occurrence. A specialty board certifying entity desiring to be recognized by the NRC must submit a one-time request for recognition and infrequently revise the information.

6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Physicians and medical institutions holding an NRC license authorizing the administration of byproduct material or radiation from this material to humans for medical use. A specialty board certification entity desiring to have its certifying process and board certificate recognized by the NRC.

7. The estimated number of annual responses: 276,359 ((NRC: 36,313 + 962 recordkeepers = 37,275) + (Agreement States: 232,925 + 6,157 recordkeepers + 2 specialty certification entity = 239,084)).

8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 7,121(NRC: 962 + Agreement states 6,157 + 2 specialty certification entities).

9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 1,073,224 hours (NRC Licensees 145,195 hrs. + Agreement States 928,027 hrs. + specialty certifying entities 2 hrs.).

10. Abstract:10 CFR part 35, Medical Use of Byproduct Material,” contains NRC's requirements and provisions for the medical use of byproduct material and for issuance of specific licenses authorizing the medical use of this material. These requirements and provisions provide for the radiation safety of workers, the general public, patients, and human research subjects. Part 35 contains mandatory requirements that apply to NRC licensees authorized to administer byproduct material or radiation therefrom to humans for medical use. These requirements also provide voluntary provisions for specialty boards to apply to have their certification processes recognized by the Start Printed Page 24751NRC so that their board certified individuals can use the certifications as proof of training and experience.
