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, “DOE/NRC Form 740M, Concise Note; DOE/NRC Form 741, Nuclear Material Transaction Report; DOE/NRC Form 742, Material Balance Report; and DOE/NRC Form 742C, Physical Inventory Listing.” 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 29, 2020, (85 FR 23870).

1. The title of the information collection: DOE/NRC Form 740M, Concise Note; DOE/NRC Form 741, Nuclear Material Transaction Report; DOE/NRC Form 742, Material Balance Report; and DOE/NRC Form 742C, Physical Inventory Listing.

2. OMB approval number: DOE/NRC Form 740M: 3150-0057. DOE/NRC Form 741: 3150-0003. DOE/NRC Form 742: 3150-0004. DOE/NRC Form 742C: 3150-0058.

3. Type of submission: Extension.

4. The form number if applicable: DOE/NRC Forms 740M, 741, 742, and 742C.

5. How often the collection is required or requested: DOE/NRC Form 741, Nuclear Material Transaction Reports will be collected whenever nuclear material is shipped or received into the Material Balance Area; DOE/NRC Form 742, Material Balance Report will be collected on an annual basis; DOE/NRC Form 742C, Physical Inventory Listing will be collected on an annual basis; DOE/NRC Form 740M, Concise Note Forms are used when needed.

6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Persons licensed to possess specified quantities of nuclear material and entities subject to the U.S.-IAEA Caribbean Territories Safeguards Agreement (INFCIRC/366) are required to respond as follows:

Any licensee who ships, receives, or otherwise undergoes an inventory change of nuclear material is required to submit a DOE/NRC Form 741 to document the change. Additional information regarding these transactions Start Printed Page 56643shall be submitted through Form 740M, with Safeguards Information identified and handled in accordance with section 73.21 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, “Requirements for the Protection of Safeguards Information.”

Any licensee who had possessed in the previous reporting period, at any one time and location, nuclear material in a quantity totaling one gram or more shall complete DOE/NRC Form 742. In addition, each licensee, Federal or State, who is authorized to possess, at any one time or location, one kilogram of foreign obligated source material, is required to file with the NRC an annual statement of source material inventory which is foreign obligated.

Any licensee, who had possessed in the previous reporting period, at any one time and location, special nuclear material in a quantity totaling one gram or more shall complete DOE/NRC Form 742C.

7. The estimated number of annual responses:

DOE/NRC Form 740M: 175.

DOE/NRC Form 741: 11,143.

DOE/NRC Form 742: 344.

DOE/NRC Form 742C: 385.

8. The estimated number of annual respondents:

DOE/NRC Form 740M: 40.

DOE/NRC Form 741: 344.

DOE/NRC Form 742: 344.

DOE/NRC Form 742C: 385.

9. The estimated number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request:

DOE/NRC Form 740M: 131.

DOE/NRC Form 741: 13,928.

DOE/NRC Form 742: 1,204.

DOE/NRC Form 742C: 1,490.

10. Abstract: Persons licensed to possess specified quantities of nuclear material currently report inventory and transaction of material to the Nuclear Materials Management and Safeguards System via the DOE/NRC Forms: DOE/NRC Form 740M, Concise Note; DOE/NRC Form 741, Nuclear Material Transaction Report; DOE/NRC Form 742, Material Balance Report; and DOE/NRC Form 742C, Physical Inventory Listing. This collection is being revised to include approximately 25 entities subject to the U.S.-IAEA Caribbean Territories Safeguards Agreement (INFCIRC/366). Part 75 requires licensees to provide reports of nuclear material inventory and flow for entities under the U.S.-IAEA Caribbean Territories Safeguards Agreement (INFCIRC/366), permit inspections by Agreement (INFCIRC/366). The IAEA inspectors, give immediate notice to the NRC in specified situations involving the possibility of loss of nuclear material, and give notice for imports and exports of specified amounts of nuclear material. These licensees will also follow written material accounting and control procedures. Reporting of transfer and material balance records to the IAEA will be done through the U.S. State system (Nuclear Materials Management and Safeguards System, collected under OMB clearance numbers 3150-0003, 3150-0004, 3150-0057, and 3150-0058.) The NRC needs this information to implement its international obligations under the U.S.-IAEA Caribbean Territories Safeguards.
