Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

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

ACTION: Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information 
collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and 
solicitation of public comment.


SUMMARY: The NRC invites public comment about our intention to request 
the OMB's approval for renewal of an existing information collection 
that is summarized below. We are required to publish this notice in the 
Federal Register under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
    1. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 748, 
``National Source Tracking Transaction Report.''
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0202.
    3. How often the collection is required: Initially, at completion 
of a transaction, and at inventory reconciliation.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Licensees that manufacture, 
receive, transfer, disassemble, or dispose of nationally tracked 
    5. The estimated number of annual respondents: 1,350 (350 NRC 
Licensees + 1,000 Agreement State Licensees).
    6. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 412 hours.
    7. Abstract: In 2006, The NRC amended its regulations to implement 
a National Source Tracking System for certain sealed sources. The 
amendments require licensees to report certain transactions involving 
nationally tracked sources to the National Source Tracking System. 
These transactions include manufacture, transfer, receipt, disassembly, 
or disposal of the nationally tracked source. This information 
collection is mandatory and is used to populate the National Source 
Tracking System.

    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?

the information to be collected?
    4. How can the burden of the information collection be minimized, 
including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology?
