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

addition, recordkeeping must be performed on an on-going basis.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: All persons applying 
for or holding a license to manufacture, produce, transfer, receive, 
acquire, own, possess, or use radioactive byproduct material.

    10. Abstract: Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 
part 30, establishes requirements that are applicable to all persons in 
the United States governing domestic licensing of radioactive byproduct

necessary to permit the NRC to make a determination whether the 
possession, use, and transfer of byproduct material is in conformance 
with the Commission's regulations for protection of the public health 
and safety.
