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, “10 CFR part 30, Rules of General Applicability to Domestic Licensing 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 May 9, 2019, 84 FR 20440.

1. The title of the information collection: Part 30 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations ( 10 CFR), “Rules of General Applicability to Domestic Licensing of Byproduct Material.”

2. OMB approval number: 3150-0017.

3. Type of submission: Extension.

4. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.

5. How often the collection is required or requested: Required reports are collected and evaluated on a continuing basis as events occur. There is a one-time submittal of information to receive a license. Renewal applications are submitted every 15 years. Information submitted in previous applications may be referenced without being resubmitted. In addition, recordkeeping must be performed on an on-going basis.

6. Who will be required or asked to respond: All persons applying for or holding a license to manufacture, produce, transfer, receive, acquire, own, possess, or use radioactive byproduct material.

7. The estimated number of annual responses: 155,164 (24,322 NRC Licensee responses [1,272 reporting responses + 2,800 for recordkeeping + 20,250 third-party disclosures] and 130,842 Agreement State Licensee responses [6,973 reporting responses + 16,500 for recordkeeping + 107,369 third-party disclosures]).

8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 19,300 (2,800 NRC licensees and 16,500 Agreement State licensees).

9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 228,279 (NRC licensees 35,291 hours [16,439 hours for reporting + 16,792 hours for recordkeeping + 2,060 hours for third-party disclosures] and Agreement State licensees 192,988 hours [90,343 hours for reporting + 91,627 hours for recordkeeping + 11,018 hours for third-party disclosures]).

10. Abstract: 10 CFR part 30 establishes requirements that are applicable to all persons in the United States governing domestic licensing of radioactive byproduct material. The application, reporting and recordkeeping requirements are necessary to permit the NRC to make a determination whether the possession, use, and transfer of byproduct material is in conformance with the Commission's regulations for protection of the public health and safety.
