Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC recently Start Printed Page 28535submitted a request for renewal of an existing collection of information to OMB for review titled “Licenses for Radiography and Radiation Safety Requirements for Radiographic Operations.” 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 March 17, 2017 (82 FR 14236).

1. The title of the information collection:10 CFR part 34, Licenses for Radiography and Radiation Safety Requirements for Radiographic Operations.”

3. Type of submission: Extension.

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

5. How often the collection is required or requested: Applications for new licenses and amendments may be submitted at any time (on occasion). Applications for renewal are submitted every 10 years. Reports are submitted as events occur.

6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Applicants for and holders of specific licenses authorizing the use of licensed radioactive material for radiography.

7. The estimated number of annual responses: 3,031 (141 reporting responses + 2,312 third-party disclosure responses + 578 recordkeepers).

8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 578 (500 Agreement State licensees plus 78 NRC licensees).

9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 260,457 hours (2,770 reporting + 234,741 recordkeeping + 22,946 third party disclosure).

The 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 licensee possession and use of source and byproduct material is in compliance with license and regulatory requirements.
