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 PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55543 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’s reactor oversight process uses PI information, along with the results of inspections, as the basis for NRC conclusions regarding plant performance and necessary regulatory response. Licensees transmit PIs electronically to reduce burden on themselves and the NRC.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a revision to an existing guide in the agency’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the agency’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 10.7, ‘‘Guide for the Preparation of Applications for Licenses for Laboratory and Industrial Use of Small Quantities of Byproduct Material,’’ was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–0017. This guide directs the reader to the type of information needed by the NRC staff to evaluate an application for a specific license for laboratories and industries to use megabecquerel (MBq) (millicurie (mCi)) quantities of byproduct material (reactor- or accelerator-produced radionuclides). VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:50 Sep 24, 2008 Jkt 214001 The regulatory framework that the NRC has established for laboratory and industrial use of small quantities of byproduct material is in Title 10, Part 30, ‘‘Rules of General Applicability to Domestic Licensing of Byproduct Material,’’ of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR part 30). This regulatory guide endorses the methods and procedures for applying for a license for laboratory and industrial use of small quantities of byproduct material contained in the current revisions of NUREG–1556, Volume 7, ‘‘Consolidated Guidance About Materials Licenses: ProgramSpecific Guidance About Academic, Research and Development, and Other Licenses of Limited Scope’’ and NUREG–1556, Volume 12, ‘‘Consolidated Guidance about Material Licenses: Program-Specific Guidance About Possession and Licenses for Manufacturing and Distribution,’’ as a process that the NRC staff finds acceptable. In April 2008, DG–0017 was published with a public comment period of 60 days from the issuance of the guide. No comments were received and the public comment period closed on June 30, 2008. Electronic copies of Regulatory Guide 10.7, Revision 2 are available through the NRC’s public Web site under ‘‘Regulatory Guides’’ at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doccollections/. In addition, regulatory guides are available for inspection at the NRC’s Public Document Room (PDR), which is located at Room O–1F21, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852–2738.
