Comment Request

AGENCY: 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 313, 
``Application for Material License''; and NRC Form 313A, ``Training and 
Experience and Preceptor Statement.''
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0120.
    3. How often the collection is required: There is a one-time 
submittal of information to receive a license. Once a specific license 
has been issued, there is a 10-year resubmittal of the information for 
renewal of the license.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: All applicants requesting a 
license for byproduct or source material.
    5. The estimated number of annual respondents: 15,914 (3,074 NRC 
licensees + 12,840 Agreement State licensees).
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 70,022 (13,526 hours for NRC licensees and 56,496 hours for 
Agreement State licensees).
    7. Abstract: Applicants must submit NRC Forms 313, and 313A to 
obtain a specific license to possess, use, or distribute byproduct or 
source material. The information is reviewed by the NRC to determine 
whether the applicant is qualified by training and experience, and has 
equipment, facilities, and procedures which are adequate to protect the 
public health and safety, and minimize danger to life or property.
    Submit, by August 22, 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?

including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology?
