Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review; 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: The Office of Federal 
and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs Requests to 
Agreement States for Information.
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0029.
    3. How often the collection is required: One time or as needed.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Thirty-seven Agreement 
States who have signed Section 274(b) Agreements with NRC.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 37.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 1,480.
    7. Abstract: The Agreement States are asked on a one-time or as-
needed basis to respond to a specific incident, to gather information 
on licensing and inspection practices or other technical and 
statistical information. Information is also exchanged for training 
purposes, such as, student travel submissions. In 2007, the NRC policy 
changed to begin funding training for Agreement State materials 
licensing and inspection staff and associated travel to attend courses 
offered through the NRC training program. The results of such 
information requests, which are authorized under Section 274(b) of the 
Atomic Energy Act, are utilized in part by the NRC in preparing 
responses to Congressional inquiries. The Agreement State comments are 
also solicited in the areas of proposed procedure and policy 
    Submit, by June 1, 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?
