II. 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, “Requests to Non-Agreement States for Information.” The NRC hereby informs potential respondents that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a person is Start Printed Page 42715not 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 April 2, 2018, (83 FR 14064).

1. The title of the information collection: Requests to Non-Agreement States for Information.

2. OMB approval number: 3150-0200.

3. Type of submission: Revision.

4. The form number if applicable: Not Applicable.

5. How often the collection is required or requested: On occasion.

6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Non-Agreement States.

7. The estimated number of annual responses: 120 responses.

8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 15 respondents.

9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 840 hours.

10. Abstract: Occasionally, requests may be made of Non-Agreement States to provide a more complete overview of the national program for regulating radioactive materials. This information would be used in the decision-making of the Commission. The legal basis is that section 274(a)(3) of the Atomic Energy Act authorizes and directs the NRC to cooperate with the States to promote an orderly regulatory pattern between the Commission and State governments with respect to nuclear development and use and regulation of byproduct, source, and special nuclear materials. Information requests sought from Non-Agreement States may take the form of one-time surveys, e.g., telephonic and electronic surveys/polls and facsimiles (questionnaires).
