Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review; Comment Request

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

ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and 
solicitation of public comment.


SUMMARY: The NRC has recently submitted to OMB for review the following 
proposal for the collection of information under the provisions of the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). The NRC hereby 
informs potential respondents that an agency may not conduct or 
sponsor, and that a person is not required to respond to, a collection 
of information unless it displays a current valid OMB control number.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Revision.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 32--
Specific Domestic Licenses to Manufacture or Transfer Certain Items 
Containing Byproduct Material.
    3. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 653, 653A,and 653B, 
``Transfers of Industrial Devices Report.''
    4. 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.
    5. Who will be 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 licensing.
    6. An estimate of the number of responses: 4147 (650 responses + 
275 recordkeepers for NRC licensees and 2522 responses + 700 
recordkeepers for Agreement State licensees).
    7. The estimated number of annual respondents: 975 (275 NRC 
licensees and 700 Agreement State licensees).
    8. An estimate of 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 recordkeeper]).
    9. An indication of whether Section 3507(d), Pub. L. 104-13 
applies: Not applicable.
    10. 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.
