Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection: 
Comment Request

AGENCY: U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

ACTION: Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information 
collection request to OMB and solicitation of public comment.


SUMMARY: The NRC is preparing a submittal to OMB for review of 
continued approval of information collections under the provisions of 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
    Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted:
    1. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 241, ``Report 
of Proposed Activities in Non-Agreement States, Areas of Exclusive 
Federal Jurisdiction, or Offshore Waters.''
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0013.
    3. How often the collection is required: NRC Form 241 must be 
submitted each time an Agreement State licensee wants to engage in or 
revise its activities involving the use of radioactive byproduct 
material in a non-Agreement State, areas of exclusive Federal 
jurisdiction, or offshore waters. The NRC may waive the requirements 
for filing additional copies of NRC Form 241 during the remainder of 
the calendar year following receipt of the initial form from a licensee 
engaging in activities under the general license.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Any licensees who holds a 
specific license from an Agreement State and wants to conduct the same 
activity in non-Agreement States, areas of exclusive Federal 
jurisdiction, or offshore waters under the general license in 10 CFR 
    5. The estimated number of annual respondents: 167 respondents.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 1,033 hours (6.18 hours per response).
    7. Abstract: Under the reciprocity provisions of 10 CFR part 150, 
any Agreement State licensee who engages in activities (use of 
radioactive material) in non-Agreement States, areas of exclusive 
Federal jurisdiction, or offshore waters, under the general license in 
section 150.20, is required to file four copies of NRC Form 241, 
``Report of Proposed Activities in Non-Agreement States, Areas of 
Exclusive Federal Jurisdiction, or Offshore Waters,'' and four copies 
of its Agreement State license at least 3 days before engaging in such 
activity. This mandatory notification permits NRC to schedule 
inspections of the activities to determine whether the activities are 
being conducted in accordance with requirements for protection of the 
public health and safety.
    Submit, by May 17, 2005, comments that address the following 
    1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC 
to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical 
    2. Is the burden estimate accurate?
    3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of 
the information to be collected?
    4. How can the burden of the information collection be minimized, 
including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology?
