Do current NRC regulations on AU T&E requirements unnecessarily limit patient access to procedures involving radiopharmaceuticals? Explain how. 4. Do current NRC regulations on AU T&E requirements unnecessarily limit research and development in nuclear medicine? Explain how. D. Other Suggested Changes to the T&E Regulations In 2002, the NRC revised its regulatory framework for medical use. The goal was to focus the NRC’s regulations on those medical procedures that pose the highest risk to workers, the general public, patients, and human research subjects and to structure the regulations to be more risk-informed and more performance-based. The 2002 rule reduced the unnecessary regulatory burden by either reducing or eliminating the prescriptiveness of some regulations. Instead, the rule provided for a performance-based approach that relied on the training and experience of the AUs, authorized nuclear pharmacists, and radiation safety officers. The NRC is requesting comments on whether there are any other changes to the T&E regulations in 10 CFR part 35 that should be considered. Please discuss your suggested changes. 1. Should the NRC regulate the T&E of physicians for medical uses? 2. Are there requirements in the NRC’s T&E regulatory framework for physicians that are non-safety related? 3. How can the NRC transform its regulatory approach for T&E while still ensuring that adequate protection is maintained for workers, the general public, patients, and human research subjects?

Collins, Director, Division of Materials Safety, Security, State, and Tribal Programs, Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards.

Licensees are required to promptly report any attempted or actual theft or diversion of the radioactive material. Licensees are required to keep copies of the security plan, procedures, background investigation records, training records, and documentation that certain activities have occurred. NRC Form 755, ‘‘Notification to the NRC of Shipments of Category 1 Quantities of Radioactive Material’’ is used by licensees to provide advance notification of shipments of category 1 quantities of radioactive material.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Sections 4233(a) and (b) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) allow a plan sponsor of a multiemployer plan to apply to PBGC for a partition of the plan and state the criteria that PBGC uses to determine a plan’s eligibility for a partition. PBGC’s regulation on Partitions of Eligible Multiemployer Plans (29 CFR part 4233) sets forth the procedures for applying for a partition, the information required to be included in a partition application, and notices to interested parties of the application. PBGC needs the information to determine whether a plan is eligible for partition and whether a proposed partition would comply with the statutory conditions required before PGBC may order a partition. The existing collection of information was approved under OMB control number 1212–0068 (expires December 31, 2018). On August 17, 2018, PBGC published in the Federal Register (at 83 FR 41113) a notice informing the public of its intent to request an extension of this collection of information. PBGC did not receive any comments about this collection of information. PBGC is requesting that OMB extend approval of the collection for three years. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. PBGC estimates that there will be six applications for partition each year for which plan sponsors submit applications under this regulation.

authorized to possess and use category 1 or category 2 quantities of 
radioactive material.
    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 101,479 (4,704
