Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review; Comment Request

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 31, 2010.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: The Office of Federal 
and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs Requests to 
Agreement States for Information.
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0029.
    4. The form number if applicable:  N/A.
    5. How often the collection is required: One time or as needed.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Thirty-seven Agreement 
States who have signed Section 274(b) Agreements with NRC.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 197.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 37.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 1,480.
    10. 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 
    A copy of the final supporting statement may be viewed free of

will be available on the NRC home page site for 60 days after the 
signature date of this notice.
    Comments and questions should be directed to the OMB reviewer

consideration cannot be given to comments received after this date.
