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: NRC Form 244, 
Registration Certificate--Use of Depleted Uranium under General 
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0031.
    3. How often the collection is required: On occasion. NRC Form 244 
is submitted when depleted uranium is received or transferred under 
general license. Information on NRC Form 244 is collected and evaluated 
on a continuing basis as events occur.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Persons receiving, 
possessing, using, or transferring depleted uranium under the general 
license established in 10 CFR 40.25(a).
    5. The number of annual respondents: 23 (4 NRC Licensees and 19 
Agreement State licensees).
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 23 (1 hour per response--4 hours for NRC licensees and 19 
hours for Agreement State licensees).
    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 244 is used to report receipt and transfer 
of depleted uranium under general license, as required by section 
40.25. The registration certification information required by NRC Form 
244 is necessary to permit the NRC to make a determination on whether 
the possession, use, and transfer of depleted uranium source and 
byproduct material is in conformance with the Commission's regulations 
for protection of public health and safety.
    Submit, by May 29, 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?
