[Docket No. NRC-2012-0198]

Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

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 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: 10 CFR Part 40, 
``Domestic Licensing of Source Material.''
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0020.
    3. How often the collection is required: On occasion. Reports 
required under 10 CFR Part 40 are collected and evaluated on a 
continuing basis as events occur. There is a one-time submittal of 
information to receive a license. Renewal applications need to be 
submitted every 5 to 10 years. Information in previous applications may 
be referenced without being resubmitted. In addition, recordkeeping 
must be performed on an on-going basis.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: 10 CFR Part 40: Applicants 
for and holders of NRC licenses authorizing the receipt, possession, 
use, or transfer of radioactive source and byproduct material.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 99 (33 NRC Licensees + 66 
Agreement State Licensees).
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 10,548 hours (4,256 NRC Licensees hours [2,184 reporting + 
2,072 recordkeeping] + 6,292 Agreement States Licensees hours [2,500 
reporting + 3,792 recordkeeping]).
    7. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 40 establishes requirements for licenses 
for the receipt, possession, use and transfer of radioactive source and 
byproduct material. The application, reporting and recordkeeping 
requirements are necessary to permit the NRC to make a determination on 
whether the possession, use, and transfer of source and byproduct 
material is in conformance with the Commission's regulations for 
protection of public health and safety.
    Submit, by November 23, 2012, 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?
