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, ``NRC 
Form 241 Report of Proposed Activities in Non-Agreement States, Areas 
of Exclusive Federal Jurisdiction, or Offshore Waters.'' 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 May 1, 2020 (85 FR 25480).
    1. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 241, ``Report 
of Proposed Activities in Non-Agreement States, Areas of Exclusive 
Federal Jurisdiction, or Offshore Waters.''
    2. OMB approval number: 3150-0013.
    3. Type of submission: Extension.
    4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 241.
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: NRC Form 241 
must be submitted each time an Agreement State licensee wants to engage 
in or revise its activities involving the use of radioactive byproduct 
material in a non-Agreement State, areas of exclusive Federal 
jurisdiction, or offshore waters. The NRC may waive the requirements 
for filing additional copies of NRC Form 241 during the remainder of 
the calendar year following receipt of the initial form.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Any licensee who holds 
a specific license from an Agreement State and wants to conduct the 
same activity in non-Agreement States, areas of exclusive Federal 
jurisdiction, or offshore water under the general license in section 
150.20 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR).
    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 1,645 responses.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 223 respondents.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
comply with the information collection requirement or request: 467 
hours (111.5 hours for initial submissions + 355.5 for changes + 0 
hours for clarifications).
    10. Abstract: Any Agreement State licensee who engages in the use 
of radioactive material in non-Agreement States, areas of exclusive 
Federal jurisdiction, or offshore waters, under the general license in 
10 CFR 150.20, is required to file, with the NRC Regional Administrator 
for the Region in which the Agreement State that issues the license is 
located, a copy of NRC Form 241, ``Report of Proposed Activities in 
Non-Agreement States, Areas of Exclusive Federal Jurisdiction, or 
Offshore Waters,'' a copy of its Agreement State specific license, and 
the appropriate fee as prescribed in 10

CFR 170.31 at least three days before engaging in such activity. This 
mandatory notification permits the NRC to schedule inspections of the 
activities to determine whether the activities are being conducted in 
accordance with requirements for protection of the public health and 
safety.

    Dated: July 24, 2020.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
