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, 
``DOE/NRC Form 740M, Concise Note; DOE/NRC Form 741, Nuclear Material 
Transaction Report; DOE/NRC Form 742, Material Balance Report; and DOE/
NRC Form 742C, Physical Inventory Listing.'' 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 April 29, 2020, (85 FR 23870).
    1. The title of the information collection: DOE/NRC Form 740M, 
Concise Note; DOE/NRC Form 741, Nuclear Material Transaction Report; 
DOE/NRC Form 742, Material Balance Report; and DOE/NRC Form 742C, 
Physical Inventory Listing.
    2. OMB approval number: DOE/NRC Form 740M: 3150-0057. DOE/NRC Form 
741: 3150-0003. DOE/NRC Form 742: 3150-0004. DOE/NRC Form 742C: 3150-
0058.
    3. Type of submission: Extension.
    4. The form number if applicable: DOE/NRC Forms 740M, 741, 742, and 
742C.
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: DOE/NRC Form 
741, Nuclear Material Transaction Reports will be collected whenever 
nuclear material is shipped or received into the Material Balance Area; 
DOE/NRC Form 742, Material Balance Report will be collected on an 
annual basis; DOE/NRC Form 742C, Physical Inventory Listing will be 
collected on an annual basis; DOE/NRC Form 740M, Concise Note Forms are 
used when needed.
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Persons licensed to 
possess specified quantities of nuclear material and entities subject 
to the U.S.-IAEA Caribbean Territories Safeguards Agreement (INFCIRC/
366) are required to respond as follows:
    Any licensee who ships, receives, or otherwise undergoes an 
inventory change of nuclear material is required to submit a DOE/NRC 
Form 741 to document the change. Additional information regarding these 
transactions

[[Page 56643]]

shall be submitted through Form 740M, with Safeguards Information 
identified and handled in accordance with section 73.21 of title 10 of 
the Code of Federal Regulations, ``Requirements for the Protection of 
Safeguards Information.''
    Any licensee who had possessed in the previous reporting period, at 
any one time and location, nuclear material in a quantity totaling one 
gram or more shall complete DOE/NRC Form 742. In addition, each 
licensee, Federal or State, who is authorized to possess, at any one 
time or location, one kilogram of foreign obligated source material, is 
required to file with the NRC an annual statement of source material 
inventory which is foreign obligated.
    Any licensee, who had possessed in the previous reporting period, 
at any one time and location, special nuclear material in a quantity 
totaling one gram or more shall complete DOE/NRC Form 742C.
    7. The estimated number of annual responses:
    DOE/NRC Form 740M: 175.
    DOE/NRC Form 741: 11,143.
    DOE/NRC Form 742: 344.
    DOE/NRC Form 742C: 385.
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents:
    DOE/NRC Form 740M: 40.
    DOE/NRC Form 741: 344.
    DOE/NRC Form 742: 344.
    DOE/NRC Form 742C: 385.
    9. The estimated number of hours needed annually to comply with the 
information collection requirement or request:
    DOE/NRC Form 740M: 131.
    DOE/NRC Form 741: 13,928.
    DOE/NRC Form 742: 1,204.
    DOE/NRC Form 742C: 1,490.
    10. Abstract: Persons licensed to possess specified quantities of 
nuclear material currently report inventory and transaction of material 
to the Nuclear Materials Management and Safeguards System via the DOE/
NRC Forms: DOE/NRC Form 740M, Concise Note; DOE/NRC Form 741, Nuclear 
Material Transaction Report; DOE/NRC Form 742, Material Balance Report; 
and DOE/NRC Form 742C, Physical Inventory Listing. This collection is 
being revised to include approximately 25 entities subject to the U.S.-
IAEA Caribbean Territories Safeguards Agreement (INFCIRC/366). Part 75 
requires licensees to provide reports of nuclear material inventory and 
flow for entities under the U.S.-IAEA Caribbean Territories Safeguards 
Agreement (INFCIRC/366), permit inspections by Agreement (INFCIRC/366). 
The IAEA inspectors, give immediate notice to the NRC in specified 
situations involving the possibility of loss of nuclear material, and 
give notice for imports and exports of specified amounts of nuclear 
material. These licensees will also follow written material accounting 
and control procedures. Reporting of transfer and material balance 
records to the IAEA will be done through the U.S. State system (Nuclear 
Materials Management and Safeguards System, collected under OMB 
clearance numbers 3150-0003, 3150-0004, 3150-0057, and 3150-0058.) The 
NRC needs this information to implement its international obligations 
under the U.S.-IAEA Caribbean Territories Safeguards.
