Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted: 1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 35 Medical Use of Byproduct Material. 2. Current OMB approval number: 3150–0010. 3. How often the collection is required: Reports of medical events, doses to an embryo/fetus or nursing child, or leaking sources are reportable on occurrence. A certifying entity desiring to be recognized by the NRC must submit a one-time request for recognition and revise the information on occurrence. 4. Who is required or asked to report: Physicians and medical institutions holding an NRC license authorizing the administration of byproduct material or radiation therefrom to humans for medical use. 5. The number of annual respondents: 8,610 (1,148 for NRC Licenses and 7,462 for Agreement States). 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 1,173,785 hours (156,538 for NRC Licenses and 1,017, 247 for Agreement States). 7. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 35, ‘‘Medical Use of Byproduct Material,’’ contains NRC’s requirements and provisions for the medical use of byproduct material and for issuance of specific licenses authorizing the medical use of this material. These requirements and provisions provide for the radiation safety of workers, the general public, patients, and human research subjects. The 10 CFR part 35 contains mandatory requirements that apply to NRC licensees authorized to administer byproduct material or radiation therefrom to humans for medical use. The information in the required reports and records is used by the NRC to ensure that public health and safety is protected, and that the possession and use of byproduct material is in compliance with the license and regulatory requirements. Submit, by October 12, 2010, comments that address the following questions: 1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC to jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:22 Aug 11, 2010 Jkt 220001 properly perform its functions?
