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 the Office of Management and Budget (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 October 6, 
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: Title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 73, ``Physical Protection of Plants 
and Materials.
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0002.
    4. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.
    5. How often the collection is required: On occasion, with the 
exception of the initial submittal of revised Cyber Security Plans, 
Security Plans, Safeguards Contingency Plans, and Security Training and 
Qualification Plans. Required reports are submitted and evaluated as 
events occur.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: Nuclear power reactor 
licensees, licensed under 10 CFR part 50 or 52 who possess, use, 
import, export, transport, or deliver to a carrier for transport, 
special nuclear material; actively decommissioning reactor licensees, 
Category I fuel facilities; Category II and III facilities; nonpower 
reactors (research and test reactors); 262 other nuclear materials 
licensees; and 200 state and Tribal contacts.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 154,748.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 581.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 543,443 (21,255 hours reporting + 
486,746 hours recordkeeping + 35,442 hours third party disclosure).
    10. Abstract: The NRC regulations in 10 CFR part 73 prescribe 
requirements to establish and maintain a physical protection system and 
security organization with capabilities for protection of (1) Special 
nuclear material (SNM) at fixed sites, (2) SNM in transit, and (3) 
plants in which SNM is used. The objective is to ensure that activities 
involving special nuclear material are consistent with interests of 
common defense and security and that these activities do not constitute 
an unreasonable risk to public health and safety. The information in 
the reports and records submitted by licensees is used by the NRC staff 
to ensure that the health and safety of the public and the environment 
are protected, and licensee possession and use of special nuclear 
material is in compliance with license and regulatory requirements.
