Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

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:
    1. The title of the information collection: NUREG/BR-0238, 
Materials Annual Fee Billing Handbook; NRC Form 628, ``Financial EDI 
Authorization''; NUREG/BR-0254, Payment Methods; and NRC Form 629, 
``Authorization for Payment by Credit Card.''
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0190.
    3. How often the collection is required: On occasion (as needed to 
pay invoices.)
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Anyone conducting business 
with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission including licensees, applicants 
and individuals who are required to pay a fee for inspections and 
    5. The number of annual respondents: 583 (11 for NRC Form 628 and 
572 for NRC Form 629 and NUREG/BR-0254).
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 47 (.9 hour for NRC Form 628 and 46 hours for NRC Form 629 
and NUREG/BR-0254).
    7. Abstract: The U.S. Department of the Treasury encourages the 
public to pay monies owed the government through use of the Automated 
Clearinghouse Network and credit cards. These two methods of payment 
are used by licensees, applicants, and individuals to pay civil 
penalties, full cost licensing fees, and inspection fees to the NRC. 
The NRC Form 628, ``Financial EDI Authorization,'' provides an option 
to make electronic payment through the Automated Clearinghouse (ACH) 
Network and authorizes the licensee's bank to pay invoices to the NRC 
through the ACH. The NRC Form 628 requests the licensee's name; 
electronic funds transfer contact, telephone number, address, 
authorized signature and title. NRC Form 629, ``Authorization for 
Payment by Credit Card,'' is another option used to authorize payment. 
The credit card authorization form is used by licensees to authorize 
payment by credit card for license fees and for payment of fees for 
fingerprint cards, and solicits information that identifies the 
cardholder's name, address, account number, card expiration date, cards 
accepted, cardholder's signature, invoice number or license number.
    There are no recordkeeping requirements associated with this 
    Submit, by February 22, 2011, 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?
