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: 10 CFR part 75--
Safeguards on Nuclear Material, Implementation of US/IAEA Agreement
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0055
    3. How often the collection is required: Installation information 
is submitted upon written notification from the Commission. Changes are 
submitted as they occur. Nuclear material accounting and control 
information is submitted in accordance with specified instructions.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: All persons licensed or 
certified by the Commission or Agreement States to possess source or 
special nuclear material at an installation specified on the U.S. 
eligible facilities list as determined by the Secretary of State or his 
designee and filed with the Commission, as well as holders of 
construction permits and persons who intend to receive source material.
    5. The number of annual respondents: Seven, one of which perform 
the reporting and recordkeeping and the other six perform the 
recordkeeping only. The NRC-licensed facilities selected for inspection 
will be reporting or updating design information. This one facility and 
the six facilities selected pursuant to a separate protocol will 
maintain transfer and material balance records, but reporting to the 
IAEA will be through the U.S. State system (Nuclear Materials 
Management and Safeguards System).
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 2,800 (.2 hours for reporting and 2,800 hours for 
recordkeeping [400 hours per recordkeeper]).
    7. Abstract: 10 CFR part 75 establishes requirements to implement 
the agreement between the United States and the International Atomic 
Energy Agency (IAEA). Under that agreement, NRC is required to collect 
information and make it available to the IAEA. Currently, the IAEA has 
selected and is inspecting two NRC-licensed facilities pursuant to 10 
CFR 75.41.
    Submit, by May 23, 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?
