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).
    Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted:
    1. The Title of the Information Collection: 10 CFR part 40, 
Domestic Licensing of Source Material.
    2. Current OMB Approval Number: 3150-0020.
    3. How Often the Collection is Required: On occasion. Reports 
required under 10 CFR part 40 are collected and evaluated on a 
continuing basis as events occur. There is a one-time submittal of 
information to receive a license. Renewal applications need to be 
submitted every 5 to 10 years. Information in previous applications may 
be referenced without being resubmitted. In addition, recordkeeping 
must be performed on an on-going basis. NRC Form 484 is submitted 
semiannually to report ground-water data necessary to implement EPA 
ground-water standards.
    4. Who is Required or Asked to Report: 10 CFR part 40: Applicants 
for and holders of NRC licenses authorizing the receipt, possession, 
use, or transfer of radioactive source and byproduct material.
    5. The Number of Annual Respondents: 894 (273 NRC Licensees [68 NRC 
responses + 205 NRC Recordkeepers] + 621 Agreement State Licensees [349 
Agreement State responses + 272 Agreement State recordkeepers])
    6. The Number of Hours Needed Annually to Complete the Requirement 
or Request: 64,214 total hours [20,525 for NRC Licensees (15,823 hours 
for reporting and 4,702 hours for recordkeeping) and 43,689 for 
Agreement State Licensees (25,963

[[Page 13482]]

hours for reporting and 17,726 hours for recordkeeping)].
    7. Abstract: 10 CFR part 40 establishes requirements for licenses 
for the receipt, possession, use and transfer of radioactive source and 
byproduct material. NRC Form 484 is used to report certain groundwater 
monitoring data required by 10 CFR part 40 for uranium recovery 
licensees. The application, reporting and recordkeeping requirements 
are necessary to permit the NRC to make a determination on whether the 
possession, use, and transfer of source and byproduct material is in 
conformance with the Commission's regulations for protection of public 
health and safety.
    Submit, by May 26, 2009, comments that address the following 
    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?
    3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of 
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?
