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, title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 71, “Packaging and Transportation of Radioactive 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 April 23, 2019 (84 FR 16889).

1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 71, “Packaging and Transportation of Radioactive Material.

2. OMB approval number: 3150-0008.

3. Type of submission: Extension.

4. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.

5. How often the collection is required or requested: On occasion. Application for package certification may be made at any time. Required reports are collected and evaluated on a continuous basis as events occur.

6. Who will be required or asked to respond: All NRC specific licensees who place byproduct, source, or special nuclear material into transportation, and all persons who wish to apply for NRC approval of package designs for use in such transportation.

7. The estimated number of annual responses: 634 responses.

8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 220 respondents.

9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 30,589 hours (25,987.6 hours reporting + 4470 hours recordkeeping + 131.3 hours third-party disclosure).

10. Abstract: The NRC regulations in 10 CFR part 71 establish requirements for packaging, preparation for shipment, and transportation of licensed material, and prescribe procedures, standards, and requirements for approval by NRC of packaging and shipping procedures for fissile material and for quantities of licensed material in excess of Type A quantities. The NRC collects information pertinent to 10 CFR part 71 for three reasons: To issue a package approval; to ensure that any incidents or package degradation or defect are appropriately captured, evaluated and if necessary, corrected to minimize future potential occurrences; and to ensure that all activities are completed using an NRC-approval quality assurance program.
