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 74, Material Control and Accounting of Special Nuclear 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 August 19, 2020, 85 FR 51070.

1. The title of the information collection: “ 10 CFR part 74, Material Control and Accounting of Special Nuclear Material.”

2. OMB approval number: 3150-0123.

3. Type of submission: Extension.

4. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.

5. How often the collection is required or requested: Submission of fundamental nuclear material control plans is a one-time requirement which has been completed by all current licensees as required. However, licensees may submit amendments or revisions to the plans as necessary. Reports are submitted as events occur.

6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Persons licensed under Part 70 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), who possess and use certain forms and quantities of special nuclear material (SNM).

7. The estimated number of annual responses: 174 (17 reporting responses + 157 recordkeepers).

8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 157.

9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 8,909 (669 hours reporting + 8,240 hours recordkeeping).

10. Abstract: 10 CFR part 74 establishes requirements for material control and accounting of SNM, and specific performance-based regulations for licensees authorized to possess, use, and produced strategic SNM, and SNM of moderate strategic significance and low strategic significance. The information is used by the NRC to make licensing and regulatory determinations concerning material control of SNM and to satisfy obligations of the United Start Printed Page 81961States to the International Atomic Energy Agency. Submission or retention of the information is mandatory for persons subject to the requirements.
