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 November 8, 2013 (78 FR 67204).
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: New.
    2. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 749, ``Manual 
License Verification Report.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-XXXX.
    4. The form number if applicable: NRC 749.
    5. How often the collection is required: On occasion. Licensees 
subject to Part 37 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 
CFR), ``Physical Protection of Byproduct Material'' license 
verification requirements must verify the legitimacy of the license 
with the issuing agency prior to transferring radioactive materials in 
quantities of concern.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Licensees are required 
to complete license verification under the

[[Page 11833]]

circumstances noted in 3 above. A License Verification System (LVS) has 
been developed, providing an electronic method for fulfilling this 
requirement. In cases where a licensee is unable to use the LVS to 
perform verification, they will provide NRC Form 749 for manual license 
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 91.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 91.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 9.1 hours.
    10. Abstract: When a licensee is unable to use the License 
Verification System to perform their license verification prior to 
transfer, a manual process has been developed; in which licensees 
submit the NRC Form 749, ``Manual License Verification Report.'' The 
form provides the information necessary for the issuing agencies to 
perform the verification on behalf of the transferring licensee.
