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: 10 CFR part 35 Medical 
Use of Byproduct Material.
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0010.
    3. How often the collection is required: Reports of medical events, 
doses to an embryo/fetus or nursing child, or leaking sources are 
reportable on occurrence. A certifying entity desiring to be recognized 
by the NRC must submit a one-time request for recognition and revise 
the information on occurrence.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Physicians and medical 
institutions holding an NRC license authorizing the administration of 
byproduct material or radiation therefrom to humans for medical use.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 8,610 (1,148 for NRC Licenses 
and 7,462 for Agreement States).
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 1,173,785 hours (156,538 for NRC Licenses and 1,017, 247 
for Agreement States).
    7. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 35, ``Medical Use of Byproduct Material,'' 
contains NRC's requirements and provisions for the medical use of 
byproduct material and for issuance of specific licenses authorizing 
the medical use of this material. These requirements and provisions 
provide for the radiation safety of workers, the general public, 
patients, and human research subjects. The 10 CFR part 35 contains 
mandatory requirements that apply to NRC licensees authorized to 
administer byproduct material or radiation therefrom to humans for 
medical use.
    The information in the required reports and records is used by the 
NRC to ensure that public health and safety is protected, and that the 
possession and use of byproduct material is in compliance with the 
license and regulatory requirements.

    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?
