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 32--
Specific Domestic Licenses to Manufacture or Transfer Certain Items 
Containing Byproduct Material.
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0001.
    3. How often the collection is required: There is a one-time 
submittal of information to receive a license. Renewal applications are 
submitted every 10 years. In addition, recordkeeping must be performed 
on an on-going basis, and reports of transfer of byproduct material 
must be reported every 5 years, and in a few cases, every year.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: All specific licensees who 
manufacture or initially transfer items containing byproduct material 
for sale or distribution to general licensees or persons exempt from 
    5. The estimated number of annual respondents: 972 (275 NRC 
licensees and 700 Agreement State licensees).
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 135,741 (36,623 hours for NRC licensees [5,225 hours 
reporting, or an

average of 8 hours per response + 31,398 hours recordkeeping, or 114 
hours per recordkeeper] and 99,118 hours for Agreement State licensees 
[20,863 hours reporting, or an average of 8.3 hours per response + 
78,255 hours recordkeeping, or an average of 112 hours per 
    7. Abstract: 10 CFR part 32 establishes requirements for specific 
licenses for the introduction of byproduct material into products or 
materials and transfer of the products or materials to general 
licensees or persons exempt from licensing. It also prescribes 
requirements governing holders of the specific licenses. Some of the 
requirements are for information which must be submitted in an 
application for a specific license, records which must be kept, reports 
which must be submitted, and information which must be forwarded to 
general licensees and persons exempt from licensing. In addition, 10 
CFR part 32 prescribes requirements for the issuance of certificates of 
registration (concerning radiation safety information about a product) 
to manufacturers or initial transferors of sealed sources and devices. 
Submission or retention of the information is mandatory for persons 
subject to the 10 CFR part 32 requirements. The information is used by 
NRC to make licensing and other regulatory determinations concerning 
the use of radioactive byproduct material in products and devices.

    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?
