II. Background

    Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted a request for renewal of 
an existing collection of information to OMB for review titled, 
``Specific Domestic Licenses to Manufacture or Transfer Certain Items 
Containing Byproduct Material.'' 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 September 10, 2015 (80 FR 54596).
    1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 32, 
``Specific Domestic Licenses to Manufacture or Transfer Certain Items 
Containing Byproduct Material.''
    2. OMB approval number: 3150-0001.
    3. Type of submission: Extension.
    4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 653, NRC Form 653A, and 
NRC Form 653B.
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: There is a 
one-time submittal of information to receive a certificate of 
registration for a sealed source and/or device. Certificates of 
registration for sealed sources and/or devices can be amended at any 
time. In addition, licensee recordkeeping must be performed on an on-
going basis, and reporting of transfer of byproduct material must be 
reported every calendar year, and in some cases, every calendar 
quarter.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: All specific licensees 
who manufacture or initially transfer items containing byproduct 
material for sale or distribution to general licensees, or persons 
exempt from licensing, medical use product distributors to specific 
licensees, and those requesting a certificate of registration for a 
sealed source and/or device.
    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 3,937 [2,807 responses 
(446 NRC responses + 2,361 Agreement State responses)] + 535 
recordkeepers (172 NRC + 363 Agreement State) + 595 third-party 
recordkeepers (186 NRC + 409 Agreement State)].
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 713 (204 NRC 
licensees, registration certificate holders and 509 Agreement State 
licensees and registration certificate holders).
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
comply with the information collection requirement or request: 164,608 
(13,139 reporting + 1,257 recordkeeping + 150,212 third-party).
    10. Abstract: Part 32 of title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR) establishes requirements for specific licenses for 
the introduction of byproduct material into products or materials and 
transfer of the products or materials to general licensees, or persons 
exempt from licensing, medical use product distributors to specific 
licensees, and those requesting a certificate of registration for a 
sealed source and/or device. It also prescribes requirements governing 
holders of the specific licenses. Some of the requirements are for 
information which must be submitted in an application for a certificate 
of registration for a sealed source and/or device, records which must 
be kept, reports which must be submitted, and information which must be 
forwarded to general licensees and persons exempt from licensing. As 
mentioned, 10 CFR part 32 also prescribes requirements for the issuance 
of certificates of registration (concerning radiation safety 
information about a product) to manufacturers or initial transferors of 
sealed sources and devices. Submission or retention of the information 
is mandatory for persons subject to the 10 CFR part 32 requirements. 
The information is used by the NRC to make licensing and other 
regulatory determinations concerning the use of radioactive byproduct 
material in products and devices.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 25th day of March 2016.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Acting NRC Clearance Officer, Office of the Chief Information Officer.
