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 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 July 7, 2010.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Revision
    2. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 327, ``Special 
Nuclear Material (SNM) and Source Material Physical Inventory Summary 
Report'' and NUREG/BR-0096, ``Instructions and Guidance for Completing 
Physical Inventory Summary Reports.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0139
    4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 327
    5. How often the collection is required: Certain licensees 
possessing strategic SNM are required to report inventories every six 
months. Licensees possessing SNM of moderate strategic significance 
must report every nine months. Licensees possessing SNM of low 
strategic significance must report annually, except three licensees 
must report their dynamic inventories every two months and a static 
inventory on an annual basis.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Fuel facility licensees 
possessing special nuclear material.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 31.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 10.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 124 hours (4 hours per response x 
31 responses).
    10. 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.
