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: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 241, ``Report 
of Proposed Activities in Non-Agreement States, Areas of Exclusive 
Federal Jurisdiction, or Offshore Waters.''
    3. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 241.
    4. How often the collection is required: NRC Form 241 must be 
submitted each time an Agreement State licensee wants to engage in or 
revise its activities involving the use of radioactive byproduct 
material in a non-Agreement State, areas of exclusive Federal 
jurisdiction, or offshore waters. The NRC may waive the requirements 
for filing additional copies of NRC Form 241 during the remainder of 
the calendar year following receipt of the initial form from a licensee 
engaging in activities under the general license.
    5. Who will be required or asked to report: Any licensees who holds 
a specific license from an Agreement State and wants to conduct the 
same activity in non-Agreement States, areas of exclusive Federal 
jurisdiction, or offshore waters under the general license in 10 CFR 
    6. An estimate of the number of responses: 3,963 responses.
    7. The estimated number of annual respondents: 167 respondents.
    8. An estimate of the number of hours needed annually to complete 
the requirement or request: 1,033 hours (15 minutes per response).
    9. An indication of whether Section 3507(d), Public Law 104-13 
applies: Not applicable.
    10. Abstract: Under the reciprocity provisions of 10 CFR Part 150, 
any Agreement State licensee who engages in activities (use of 
radioactive material) in non-Agreement States, areas of exclusive 
Federal jurisdiction, or offshore waters, under the general license in 
Section 150.20, is required to file four copies of NRC Form 241, 
``Report of Proposed Activities in Non-Agreement States, Areas of 
Exclusive Federal Jurisdiction, or Offshore Waters,'' and four copies 
of its Agreement State license at least 3 days before engaging in such 
activity. This mandatory notification permits NRC to schedule 
inspections of the activities to determine whether the activities are 
being conducted in accordance with requirements for protection of the 
public health and safety.
