Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection: Comment Request
The NRC is preparing a submittal to OMB for review of continued approval of information collections under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted: 1. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 313, ``Application for Material License''; and NRC Form 313A, ``Training and Experience and Preceptor Statement.'' 2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0120. 3. How often the collection is required: There is a one-time submittal of information to receive a license. Once a specific license has been issued, there is a 10-year resubmittal of the information for renewal of the license. 4. Who is required or asked to report: All applicants requesting a license for byproduct or source material. 5. The estimated number of annual respondents: 15,914 (3,074 NRC licensees + 12,840 Agreement State licensees). 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 70,022 (13,526 hours for NRC licensees and 56,496 hours for Agreement State licensees). 7. Abstract: Applicants must submit NRC Forms 313, and 313A to obtain a specific license to possess, use, or distribute byproduct or source material. The information is reviewed by the NRC to determine whether the applicant is qualified by training and experience, and has equipment, facilities, and procedures which are adequate to protect the public health and safety, and minimize danger to life or property. Submit, by August 22, 2005, comments that address the following questions: 1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical utility? 2. Is the burden estimate accurate? 3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected? 4. How can the burden of the information collection be minimized, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology? A copy of the draft supporting statement may be viewed free of charge at the NRC Public Document Room, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Room O-1 F21, Rockville, MD 20852.
