solicitation of public comment.


SUMMARY: The NRC has recently submitted to OMB for review the following 
proposal for the collection of information under the provisions of the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). 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.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Revision.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 61--
Licensing Requirements for Land Disposal of Radioactive Waste.
    3. How often the collection is required: Applications for licenses 
are submitted once. Applications for renewals or amendments are 
submitted as needed. Other reports are submitted annually and as other 
events require.
    4. Who will be required or asked to report: Applicants for and 
holders of an NRC license for land disposal of low-level radioactive 
waste, and all generators, collectors, and processors of

low-level waste intended for disposal at a low-level waste facility.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 7.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 374 hours for reporting (approximately 3.4 hours per 
response) plus 4513 hours for recordkeeping (approximately 645 hours 
per recordkeeper). The industry total burden is 4887 hours annually.
    7. An indication of whether Section 3507(d), Pub. L. 104-13 
applies: Not applicable.
    8. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 61 establishes the procedures, criteria, 
and license terms and conditions for the land disposal of low-level 
radioactive waste. Reporting and recordkeeping requirements are 
mandatory or, in the case of application submittals, are required to 
obtain a benefit. The information collected in the applications, 
reports, and records is evaluated by the NRC to ensure that the 
licensee's or applicant's physical plant, equipment, organization, 
training, experience, procedures and plans provide an adequate level of 
protection of public health and safety, common defense and security, 
and the environment.
