    2. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 396, 
``Certification of Medical Examination by Facility Licensee.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0024.
    4. How often the collection is required: Upon application for an 
initial operator license, every six years for the renewal of operator 
or senior operator license, and upon notices of disability.
    5. Who is required or asked to report: Facility licensees who are 
tasked with certifying the medical fitness of an applicant or licensee.
    6. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 1,287 (1,150 
responses + 137 recordkeepers).
    7. The number of annual respondents: 137.
    8. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 758 (288 hours for reporting [.25 hours per response] and

NRC regarding the medical condition of applicants for initial operator 
licenses or renewal of operator licenses and for the maintenance of 
medical records for all licensed operators. The information is used to 
determine whether the physical condition and general health of 
applicants for operator licensees is such that the applicant would not 
be expected to cause operational errors and endanger public health and 
    A copy of the final supporting statement may be viewed free of
