[Docket No. NRC-2010-0322]

Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

AGENCY: 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:
    1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 70, 
``Domestic Licensing of Special Nuclear Material''.
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0009.
    3. How often the collection is required: Requires reports are 
collected and evaluated on a continuing basis as events occur. 
Applications for new licenses and amendments may be submitted at any 
time. Generally, renewal applications are submitted every ten years and 
for major fuel cycle facilities updates of the safety demonstration 
section are submitted every two years. Nuclear material control and 
accounting information is submitted in accordance with specified 
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Applicants for and holders 
of specific NRC licenses to receive title to, own, acquire, deliver, 
receive, possess, use, or initially transfer special nuclear material.

    5. The number of annual respondents: 372.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 89,465 hours (81,785 reporting + 7,700 recordkeeping) or an 
average of 125 hours per response (81,765 reporting burden hours/655 
responses) and an average of 13 hours per recordkeeper (7,700 
recordkeeping burden hours/61 recordkeepers).
    7. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 70 establishes requirements for licenses 
to won, acquire, receive, possess, use, and transfer special nuclear 
material. The information in the applications, reports, and records is 
used by NRC to make licensing and other regulatory determinations 
concerning the use of special nuclear material. The revised estimate of 
burden reflects the addition of requirements for documentation for 
termination or transfer of licensed activities, and modifying licenses.
    Submit, by December 17, 2010, comments that address the following 
    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?
