Domestic Licenses for Byproduct Material.
    3. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.
    4. How often the collection is required: Reports are submitted as 
events occur. Registration certificates may be submitted at any time. 
Changes to the information on the registration certificate are 
submitted as they occur.
    5. Who will be required or asked to report: Persons receiving, 
possessing, using, or transferring byproduct material in certain items.
    6. An estimate of the number of responses: 51,205 (1977 NRC 
responses + 6600 NRC recordkeepers + 16,228 Agreement State responses + 
26,400 Agreement State recordkeepers).
    7. The estimated number of annual respondents: Approximately 6,600 
NRC general licensees and 26,400 Agreement State general licensees.
    8. An estimate of the number of hours needed annually to complete 
the requirement or request: 15,118 (2,474 hours for NRC licensees 
[1,650 hours recordkeeping and 824 hours reporting] and 12,644 hours 
for Agreement State licensees [6,600 hours recordkeeping and 6,044

per recordkeeper).
    9. An indication of whether Section 3507(d), Pub. L. 104-13

possession and use of byproduct material in certain items and a general 
license for ownership of byproduct material. General licensees are 
required to keep records and submit reports identified in part 31 in 
order for NRC to determine with reasonable assurance that devices are 
operated safely and without radiological hazard to users or the public.
