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 August 14, 2012 (77 FR 48555).
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 748, 
``National Source Tracking Transaction Report.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0202.
    4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 748.
    5. How often the collection is required: On occasion (at completion 
of a transaction, and at inventory reconciliation).
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Licensees that 
manufacture, receive, transfer, disassemble, or dispose of nationally 
tracked sources.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 13,523.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 1,400 (260 NRC 
Licensees + 1,140 Agreement State Licensees).
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 1,601.5 hours.
    10. Abstract: In 2006, the NRC amended its regulations to implement 
a National Source Tracking System (NSTS) for certain sealed sources. 
The amendments require licensees to report certain transactions 
involving nationally tracked sources to the NSTS. These transactions 
include manufacture, transfer, receipt, disassembly, or disposal of the 
nationally tracked source. This information collection is mandatory and 
is used to populate the NSTS.
