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 25, 2013 (78 FR 70353).
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 39, 
``Licenses and Radiation Safety Requirements for Well Logging.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0130.
    4. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.
    5. How often the collection is required: Applications for new 
licenses and amendments may be submitted at any time. Applications for

holders of specific licenses authorizing the use of licensed 
radioactive materials for well logging.

licensees' responses + 2,067 Agreement States licensees' responses).
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 235 (32 NRC 
licensees + 203 Agreement States licensees).
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to

hours (644 reporting + 43,393 recordkeeping hours).
    10. Abstract: Part 39 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR), establishes radiation safety requirements for the 
use of radioactive materials in well logging operations. Information in 
the applications, reports, and records is used by the NRC staff to 
ensure that the health and safety of the public is protected and that 
the licensees' possession and use of the radioactive sources and 
byproduct materials is in compliance with the license and the 
regulatory requirements.
