[Docket No. NRC-2009-0454]

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 664, General 
Licensee Registration;
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0198;
    3. How often the collection is required: Annually;
    4. Who is required or asked to report: General Licensees of the NRC 
who possess certain generally licensed devices subject to annual 
registration authorized pursuant to 10 CFR 31.5.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 840
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 280 hours annually (840 respondents x 20 minutes per form).
    7. Abstract: NRC Form 664 is used by NRC general licensees to make 
reports regarding certain generally licensed devices subject to annual 
registration. The registration program allows NRC to better track 
general licensees, so that they can be contacted or inspected as 
necessary, and to make sure that generally licensed devices can be

identified even if lost or damaged. Also, the registration program 
ensures that general licensees are aware of and understand the 
requirements for the possession, use and disposal of devices containing 
byproduct material. Greater awareness helps to ensure that general 
licensees will comply with the regulatory requirements for proper 
handling and disposal of generally licensed devices and would reduce 
the potential for incidents that could result in unnecessary radiation 
exposure to the public and contamination of property.
    Submit, by January 4, 2010, 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.
