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 749, ``Manual License Verification Report''/License Verification 
System.'' 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 25479).
    1. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 749, ``Manual 
License Verification Report''/License Verification System.
    2. OMB approval number: 3150-0223.
    3. Type of submission: Extension.
    4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 749.
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: On occasion. 
Licensees subject to part 37 of title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations, ``Physical Protection of Byproduct Material'' license 
verification requirements must verify the legitimacy of the license 
with the issuing agency prior to transferring radioactive materials in 
quantities of concern.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Licensees are required 
to complete a license verification under the circumstances noted in 5 
above. A License Verification System (LVS) is available to provide an 
electronic method for fulfilling this requirement. In cases where a 
licensee is unable to use the LVS to perform a verification, they will 
provide NRC Form 749 for manual license verification.
    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 587.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 587.
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
comply with the information collection requirement or request: 59.
    10. Abstract: When a licensee is unable to use the LVS to perform 
their license verification prior to transferring radioactive materials 
in quantities of concern, a manual process is available, in which 
licensees submit the NRC Form 749, ``Manual License Verification 
Report.'' The form provides the information necessary for the license 
issuing agencies to perform the verification on behalf of the licensee 
transferring the radioactive materials.
