ACTION: Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information 
collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (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 
    Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted:
    1. The title of the information collection: Request to Non-
Agreement States for Information.
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0200.
    3. How often the collection is required: 8 times per year.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: The 15 Non-Agreement States 
(13 States, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto 
Rico that have not signed Section 274(b) Agreements with NRC.).
    5. The number of annual respondents: 15.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 1,089.
    7. Abstract: Requests may be made of Non-Agreement States that are 
similar to those of Agreement States to provide a more complete 
overview of the national program for regulating radioactive materials. 
This information would be used in the decision-making of the 
Commission. With Agreement States and as part of the NRC cooperative 
post-agreement program with the States pursuant to Section 274(b), 
information on licensing and inspection practices, and/or incidents, 
and other technical and statistical information are exchanged. 
Therefore, information requests sought may take the form of surveys, 
e.g., telephonic and electronic surveys/polls and facsimiles.

to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical 
    2. Is the burden estimate accurate?

the information to be collected?

including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology?
