[Docket No. NRC-2012-0198]

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 September 24, 2012 (77 FR 58872).
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 40, 
Domestic Licensing of Source Material.
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0020.
    4. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    5. How often the collection is required: On occasion. Reports 
required under part 40 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
(10 CFR) 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.
    6. Who will be 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 
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 589 [220 (168.6 
NRC responses + 51 recordkeepers)] + 369 (220 Agreement States 
responses + 149 recordkeepers).
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 99 (33 NRC Licensees 
+ 66 Agreement State Licensees).
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 11,106 hours (4,815 NRC Licensees 
hours [2,743 reporting + 2,072 recordkeeping] + 6,291 Agreement States 
Licensees hours [2,500 reporting + 3,791 recordkeeping]).
    10. 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.
