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

ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and 
solicitation of public comment.


SUMMARY: The NRC has recently submitted to OMB for review the following 
proposal for the collection of information under the provisions of the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). The NRC hereby 
informs potential respondents that an agency may not conduct or 
sponsor, and that a person is not required to respond to, a collection 
of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. 
The NRC published a Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment 
period on this information collection on March 27, 2009.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 40, 
Domestic Licensing of Source Material.
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0020.
    4. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    5. 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.

Licensees + 272 Agreement State Licensees).
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 65,418 total hours [20,769 for NRC 
Licensees (16,067 hours for reporting and 4,702 hours for 
recordkeeping) and 44,649 for Agreement State Licensees (26,923 hours 
for reporting and 17,726 hours for recordkeeping)].
    10. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 40 establishes requirements for licenses 
for the receipt, possession, use and transfer of radioactive source and 
byproduct material. 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.
