ACTION: Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information collection AGENCY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:13 Apr 06, 2006 Jkt 208001 request to OMB and solicitation of public comment. SUMMARY: The NRC is preparing a submittal to OMB for review of continued approval of information collections under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). Information Pertaining to the Requirement To Be Submitted 1. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 244, Registration Certificate—Use of Depleted Uranium under General License. 2. Current OMB approval number: 3150–0031. 3. How often the collection is required: On occasion. NRC Form 244 is submitted when depleted uranium is received or transferred under general license. Information on NRC Form 244 is collected and evaluated on a continuing basis as events occur. 4. Who is required or asked to report: Persons receiving, possessing, using, or transferring depleted uranium under the general license established in 10 CFR 40.25(a). 5. The estimated number of annual respondents: 5 (2 NRC licensees and 3 Agreement State licensees). 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 5 (1 hour per response—2 hours for NRC licensees and 3 hours for Agreement State licensees). 7. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 40 establishes requirements for licenses for the receipt, possession, use and transfer of radioactive source and byproduct material. NRC Form 244 is used to report receipt and transfer of depleted uranium under general license, as required by section 40.25. The registration certification information required by NRC Form 244 is necessary to permit the NRC to make a determination on whether the possession, use, and transfer of depleted uranium source and byproduct material is in conformance with the Commission’s regulations for protection of public health and safety. Submit, by June 6, 2006, comments that address the following questions: 1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical utility? 2. Is the burden estimate accurate? 3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected? 4. How can the burden of the information collection be minimized, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology?

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 205(a) of the Act (Pub. L. 109-53; 
119 Stat. 462, 483; 19 U.S.C. 4034) provides that certain entries of 
textile or apparel goods of designated eligible countries that are 
parties to the Dominican Republic--Central America--United States Free 
Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR) made on or after January 1, 2004 may be 
liquidated or reliquidated at the applicable rate of duty for those 
goods established in the Schedule of the United States to Annex 3.3 of 
the CAFTA-DR. Section 205(b) of the Act requires the USTR to determine, 
in accordance with Article 3.20 of the CAFTA-DR, which CAFTA-DR 
countries are eligible countries for purposes of Section 205(a). 
Article 3.20 provides that importers may claim retroactive duty 
treatment for imports of certain textile or apparel goods entered on or 
after January 1, 2004 and before the entry into force of CAFTA-DR from 
those CAFTA-DR countries that will provide reciprocal retroactive duty 
treatment or a benefit for textile or apparel goods that is equivalent 
to retroactive duty treatment.
    Pursuant to Section 205(b) of the Act, I have determined that 
Honduras and Nicaragua will each provide an equivalent benefit for 
textile or apparel goods of the United States within the meaning of 
Article 3.20 of the CAFTA-DR. I therefore determine that Honduras and 
Nicaragua are eligible countries for purposes of Section 205 of the 
Act.

U.S. Trade Representative.
