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 entitled, 10 
CFR part 35, ``Medical Use of 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 February 26, 2020 (85 FR 
11125).
    1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 35, 
``Medical Use of Byproduct Material.''
    2. OMB approval number: 3150-0010.
    3. Type of submission: Extension.
    4. The form number if applicable: Not applicable.
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: Reports of 
medical events, doses to an embryo/fetus or nursing child, or leaking 
source are reportable on occurrence. A specialty board certifying 
entity desiring to be recognized by the NRC must submit a one-time 
request for recognition and infrequently revise the information.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Physicians and medical 
institutions holding an NRC license authorizing the administration of 
byproduct material or radiation from this material to humans for 
medical use. A specialty board certification entity desiring to have 
its certifying process and board certificate recognized by NRC.
    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 299,266 (292,182 
reporting responses + 7,019 recordkeepers + 65 third party disclosure 
responses).
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 7,021 (856 NRC 
licensees + 6,163 Agreement State licensees + 2 specialty board 
certification entity).
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
comply with the information collection requirement or request: 
1,166,695 hours (69,391 reporting + 1,097,177 recordkeeping + 127 third 
party disclosure).
    10. Abstract: 10 CFR part 35, ``Medical Use of Byproduct 
Material,'' contains NRC's requirements and provisions for the medical 
use of byproduct material and for issuance of

[[Page 41071]]

specific licenses authorizing the medical use of this material. These 
requirements and provisions provide for the radiation safety of 
workers, the general public, patients, and human research subjects. 
Part 35 contains mandatory requirements that apply to NRC licensees 
authorized to administer byproduct material or radiation to humans for 
medical use. These requirements also provide voluntary provisions for 
specialty boards to apply to have their certification processes 
recognized by the NRC so that their board certified individuals can use 
the certifications as proof of training and experience.
