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 July 2, 2014.
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 36, 
``Licenses and Radiation Safety Requirements for Irradiators.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0158.
    4. How often the collection is required: Annually.
    5. Who will be required or asked to report: Irradiator licensees 
licensed by NRC or an Agreement State.
    6. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 1,911.28 (7.28 
for reporting [1.04 NRC licensee and 6.24 Agreement State licensees], 
56 for recordkeepers [8 NRC licensees and 48 Agreement State 
Licensees], and 1,848 for third-party disclosures [264 NRC licensees 
and 1,584 Agreement State licensees]).
    7. The estimated number of annual respondents: 56 (8 NRC licensees 
and 48 Agreement State licensees).
    8. An estimate of the total 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).
    9. 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.
