II. Background

Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted a proposed collection of information which included a request for extension of an existing collection of information to OMB for review entitled, “The Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards Requests for Information on 10 CFR part 150, Exemptions and Continued Regulatory Authority in Agreement States and in Offshore Waters Under Section 274 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954.” 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 October 10, 2018, (83 FR 50969).

2. OMB approval number: 3150-0032.

3. Type of submission: Extension.

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

5. How often the collection is required or requested: One-time or as-needed.

6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Agreement States who have signed Section 274(b) Agreements with the NRC.

7. The estimated number of annual responses: 8.

8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 8.

9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the Information collection requirement or request: 190.

10. Abstract: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) regulations in part 150 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), provide certain exemptions to persons in Agreement States from the licensing requirements contained in Chapters 6, 7, and 8 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and certain regulations of the Commission. The regulations in 10 CFR part 150 also define the Commission's continued regulatory authority over Agreement State activities which include byproduct, source, and special nuclear material reporting requirements related to reciprocity and enforcement. There exists a need for the NRC to gather information concerning the application, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements imposed by specific sections of 10 CFR part 150.
