Form 212, ``Qualifications Investigation Professional, Technical, and 
Administrative Positions.'' 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 17, 2019 (84 FR 
55593).

collected for every new hire to the NRC.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Former employers, 
supervisors, and other references indicated on the job application are 
asked to complete the NRC Form 212.
    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 500.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 500.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
comply with the information collection requirement or request: 250.
    10. Abstract: Information requested on NRC Form 212 is used to 
determine the qualifications and suitability of applicants for 
employment in professional, technical, and administrative positions 
with the NRC. The completed form may be used to examine, rate and/or 
assess the prospective employee's qualifications. The information 
regarding the qualifications of applicants for employment is reviewed

information in the NRC files, to determine the qualifications of the 
applicant for appointment to the position under consideration.
