Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review; Comment Request

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

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 November 28, 2011 (76 FR 72983).
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 31, General 
Domestic Licenses for Byproduct Material.
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0016.
    4. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    5. How often the collection is required: Reports are submitted as 
events occur. General license registration requests may be submitted at 
any time. Changes to the information on the registration may be 
submitted as they occur.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Persons receiving, 
possessing, using, or transferring devices containing byproduct 
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 35,997 (3,420 NRC 
licensees + 32,577 Agreement States).
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 23,300 
(Approximately 2,400 NRC general licensees and 20,900 Agreement State 
general licensees).
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 10,998.5 hours (1,061 hours for 
NRC licensees [461 hours reporting + 600 hours recordkeeping] + 9,937.5 
hours for Agreement State licensees [4,712.5 hours reporting + 5,225 
hours recordkeeping]).
    10. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 31 establishes general licenses for the 
possession and use of byproduct material in certain devices. General 
licensees are required to keep testing records and submit event reports 
identified in Part 31, which assist NRC in determining with reasonable 
assurance that devices are operated safely and without radiological 
hazard to users or the public.
