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:

Nuclear Material (SNM) and Source Material Physical Inventory Summary 
Report'' and NUREG/BR-0096, ``Instructions and Guidance for Completing 
Physical Inventory Summary Reports.''
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0139.
    3. How often the collection is required: Certain licensees 
possessing strategic SNM are required to report inventories every 6 
months. Licensees possessing SNM of moderate strategic significance 
must report every 9 months. Licensees possessing SNM of low strategic 
significance must report annually, except three licensees must report 
their dynamic inventories every 2 months and a static inventory on an 
annual basis.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Fuel facility licensees 
possessing special nuclear material.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 10.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 124 hours (4 hours per response x 31 responses).
    7. Abstract: NRC Form 327 is submitted by fuel facility licensees 
to account for special nuclear material. The data is used by NRC to 
assess licensee material control and accounting programs and to confirm 
the absence of (or detect the occurrence of) SNM theft or diversion. 
NUREG/BR-0096 provides specific guidance and instructions for 
completing the form in accordance with the requirements appropriate for 
a particular licensee.
