ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and solicitation of public comment. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The NRC has recently submitted to OMB for review the following proposal for the collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). 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. 1. Type of submission—new, revision, or extension: Extension. 2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 19, ‘‘Notices, Instructions, and Reports to Workers: Inspection and Investigations.’’ 3. The form number if applicable: N/A. 4. How often the collection is required: As necessary in order that adequate and timely reports of radiation exposure be made to individuals involved in NRC-licensed activities. 5. Who will be required or asked to report: Licensees authorized to receive, possess, use, or transfer material licensed by the NRC. 6. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 4,906 responses (256 plus 4,650 recordkeepers). 7. The estimated number of annual respondents: 4,650 licensees. 8. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 35,674 hours (4,553 hours for reporting and 31,121 hours for recordkeeping). 9. An indication of whether Section 3507(d), Pub. L. 104–13 applies: N/A. 10.

ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and 
solicitation of public comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The NRC has recently submitted to OMB for review the following 
proposal for the collection of information under the provisions of the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). 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.
    1. Type of submission--new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 19, 
``Notices, Instructions, and Reports to Workers: Inspection and 
Investigations.''
    3. The form number if applicable: N/A.
    4. How often the collection is required: As necessary in order that 
adequate and timely reports of radiation exposure be made to 
individuals involved in NRC-licensed activities.
    5. Who will be required or asked to report: Licensees authorized to 
receive, possess, use, or transfer material licensed by the NRC.
    6. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 4,906 responses 
(256 plus 4,650 recordkeepers).
    7. The estimated number of annual respondents: 4,650 licensees.
    8. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 35,674 hours (4,553 hours for 
reporting and 31,121 hours for recordkeeping).
    9. An indication of whether Section 3507(d), Pub. L. 104-13 
applies: N/A.
    10. Abstract: Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 19, 
requires licensees to advise workers on an annual basis of any 
radiation exposure they may have received as a result of

[[Page 49321]]

NRC-licensed activities or when certain conditions are met. These 
conditions apply during termination of the worker's employment, at the 
request of a worker, former worker, or when the worker's employer (the 
NRC licensee) must report radiation exposure information on the worker 
to the NRC. Part 19 also establishes requirements for instructions by 
licensees to individuals participating in licensed activities and 
options available to these individuals in connection with Commission 
inspections of licensees to ascertain compliance with the provisions of 
the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, Title II of the Energy 
Reorganization Act of 1974, and regulations, orders and licenses 
thereunder regarding radiological working conditions.
    The worker should be informed of the radiation dose he or she 
receives because: (a) That information is needed by both a new employer 
and the individual when the employee changes jobs in the nuclear 
industry; (b) the individual needs to know the radiation dose received 
as a result of an accident or incident (if this dose is in excess of 
the 10 CFR Part 20 limits) so that he or she can seek counseling about 
future work involving radiation, medical attention, or both, as 
desired; and (c) since long-term exposure to radiation may be an 
adverse health factor, the individual needs to know whether the 
accumulated dose is being controlled within NRC limits. The worker also 
needs to know about health risks from occupational exposure to 
radioactive materials or radiation, precautions or procedures to 
minimize exposure, worker responsibilities and options to report any 
licensee conditions which may lead to or cause a violation of 
Commission regulations, and individual radiation exposure reports which 
are available to him.
    A copy of the final supporting statement may be viewed free of 
charge at the NRC Public Document Room, One White Flint North, 11555

requests are available at the NRC worldwide Web site: http://
www.nrc.gov/public-involve/doc-comment/omb/index.html. The document 
will be available on the NRC home page site for 60 days after the 
signature date of this notice.
    Comments and questions should be directed to the OMB reviewer 
listed below by September 27, 2007. Comments received after this date 
will be considered if it is practical to do so, but assurance of 
consideration cannot be given to comments received after this date.
