ACTION: Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information 
collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and

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 36, 
``Licenses and Radiation Safety Requirements for Irradiators.''
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0158.
    3. How often the collection is required: Annually.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Irradiator licensees 
licensed by NRC or an Agreement State.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 56 (8 NRC licensees and 48 
Agreement State licensees).
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 34,048 hours (4,864 NRC licensee hours + 29,184 Agreement 
State licensee hours).
    7. Abstract: Part 36 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
(10 CFR) contains requirements for the issuance of a license 
authorizing the use of sealed sources containing radioactive materials 
in irradiators used to irradiate objects or materials for a variety of 
purposes in research, industry, and other fields. The subparts cover 
specific requirements for obtaining a license or license exemption, 
design and performance criteria for irradiators; and radiation safety 
requirements for operating irradiators, including requirements for 
operating irradiators, including requirements for operator training, 
written operating and emergency procedures, personnel monitoring, 
radiation surveys, inspection, and maintenance. Part 36 also contains 
the recordkeeping and reporting requirements that are necessary to 
ensure that the irradiator is being safely operated so that it does not 
pose any danger to the health and safety of the general public and the 
irradiator employees.
