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 150, 
``Exemptions and Continued Regulatory Authority in Agreement States and 
in Offshore Waters under section 274.''
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0032.
    3. How often the collection is required: 10 CFR 150.16(b), 
150.17(c), and 150.19(c) require the submission of reports following 
specified events, such as the theft or unlawful diversion of licensed 
radioactive material. The source material inventory reports required 
under 10 CFR 150.17(b) must be submitted annually by certain licensees.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Agreement State licensees 
authorized to possess source or special nuclear material at certain 
types of facilities, or at any one time and location in greater than 
specified amounts. In addition, persons engaging in activities in non-
Agreement States, in areas of exclusive Federal jurisdiction within 
Agreement States, or in offshore waters.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 15.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 190 hours.
    7. Abstract: 10 CFR part 150 provides certain exemptions from NRC 
regulations for persons in Agreement States. Part 150 also defines 
activities in Agreement States and in offshore waters over which NRC 
regulatory authority continues, including certain information 
collection requirements. The information is needed to permit NRC to 
make reports to other governments and the International Atomic Energy 
Agency in accordance with international agreements. The information is 
also used to carry out NRC's safeguards and inspection programs.
    Submit, by June 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?

including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology?
