The NRC published a Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period on this information collection on February 9, 2017 (82 FR 10030). 1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 39, ‘‘Licenses and Radiation Safety Requirements for Well Logging.’’ 2. OMB approval number: 3150–0130. 3. Type of submission: Extension. 4. The form number if applicable: N/A 5. How often the collection is required or requested: Applications for new licenses and amendments may be submitted at any time (on occasion). Applications for renewal are submitted every 10 years. Reports are submitted as events occur. 6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Applicants and holders of specific licenses authorizing the use of licensed radioactive material for well logging. 7. The estimated number of annual responses: 4,226. 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 200. 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 44,931. 10. Abstract: Part 39 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), establishes radiation safety requirements for the use of radioactive material for well logging. The information in the applications, reports, and records is used by the NRC staff to ensure that the health and safety of the public is protected and that licensee possession and use of source and byproduct material is in compliance with license and regulatory requirements.
