[Docket No. NRC-2011-0271]

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

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and 
solicitation of public comment.


SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (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 November 28, 2011 (76 FR 72982).
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Revision.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 20, 
``Standards for Protection Against Radiation.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0014.
    4. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    5. How often the collection is required: Annually for most reports 
and at license termination for reports dealing with decommissioning.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: NRC licensees and 
Agreement State licensees, including those requesting license 
terminations. Types of licensees include civilian commercial, 
industrial, academic, and medical users of nuclear materials. Licenses 
are issued for, among other things, the possession, use, processing, 
handling, and importing and exporting of nuclear materials, and for the 
operation of nuclear reactors.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 43,505 (6,215 
from NRC licensees and 37,290 from Agreement State licensees)
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 21,000 (3,000 NRC 
licensees and 18,000 Agreement State licensees)
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 640,521 (91,503 from NRC licensees 
and 549,018 from Agreement State licensees)
    10. Abstract: 10 CFR part 20 establishes standards for protection 
against ionizing radiation resulting from activities conducted under 
licenses issued by the NRC and by Agreement States. These standards 
require the establishment of radiation protection programs, maintenance 
of radiation protection programs, maintenance of radiation records 
recording of radiation received by workers, reporting of incidents 
which could cause exposure to radiation, submittal of an annual report 
to NRC and to Agreement States of the results of individual monitoring, 
and submittal of license termination information. These mandatory 
requirements are needed to protect occupationally exposed individuals 
from undue risks of excessive exposure to ionizing radiation and to 
protect the health and safety of the public.
