[Docket No. NRC-2010-0236]

Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review; Comment Request

AGENCY: 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 9, 2010.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Revision.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 19, 
Notices, Instructions, and Reports to Workers: Inspection and 
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0044.
    4. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    5. How often the collection is required: As necessary in order that 
adequate and timely reports of radiation exposure be made to 
individuals involved in NRC-licensed activities.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Licensees authorized to 
receive, possess, use, or transfer material licensed by the NRC.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 3,967 (123 
responses + 3,844 recordkeepers).
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 3,844.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 31,795.
    10. Abstract: Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 19, 
requires licensees to advise workers on an annual basis of any 
radiation exposure in excess of 1 mSv (100 mrem) they may have received 
as a result of NRC-licensed activities or when certain conditions are 
met. These conditions apply during termination of the worker's 
employment, at the request of the workers, former workers, or when the 
worker's employer (the NRC licensee) must report radiation exposure 
information on the worker to the NRC. Part 19 also establishes 
requirements for instructions by licensees to individuals participating 
in licensed activities and options available to these individuals in 
connection with Commission inspections of licensees to ascertain 
compliance with the provisions of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as 
amended. Title II of the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, and 
regulations, orders and licenses there under regarding radiological 
working conditions.
    The worker should be informed of the radiation dose he or she 
receives because: (a) That information is needed by both a new employer 
and the individual when the employee changes jobs in the nuclear 
industry; (b) the individual needs to know the radiation dose received 
as a result of the accident or incident (if this dose is in excess of 
the 10 CFR Part 20 limits) so that he or she can seek counseling about 
future work involving radiation, medical attention, or both, as 
desired; and (c) since long-term exposure to radiation may be an 
adverse health factor, the individual needs to know whether the 
accumulated dose is being controlled within NRC limits. The worker also 
needs to know about health risks from occupational exposure to 
radioactive materials or radiation, precautions or procedures to 
minimize exposure, worker responsibilities and options to report any 
licensee conditions which may lead to or cause a violation of 
Commission regulations, and individual radiation exposure reports which 
are available to him.

consideration cannot be given to comments received after this date.
