Document Number: E7-15082
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-08-03
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) proposes to adopt a new routine use that will apply to all of its systems of records allowing disclosure to appropriate persons and entities for purposes of response and remedial efforts in the event that there has been a breach of data contained in the systems. This routine use will facilitate an effective response to a confirmed or suspected breach by permitting disclosure to those individuals affected by the breach, as well as to others who are in a position to assist in the NRC's response efforts, either by assisting in notification to affected individuals or by otherwise playing a role in preventing, minimizing, or remedying harm from the breach.
NUREG-1556, Volume 9, Revision 2, “Consolidated Guidance About Materials Licenses Program-Specific Guidance About Medical Use Licenses; Draft Guidance Document for Comment
Document Number: E7-15049
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-08-02
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has amended its regulations to include jurisdiction over certain radium sources, accelerator-produced radioactive materials, and certain naturally occurring radioactive material, as required by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct), which was signed into law on August 8, 2005. The EPAct expanded the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 definition of byproduct material to include these radioactive materials. Subsequently, these radioactive materials were placed under NRC's regulatory authority. NRC is revising its regulations to provide a regulatory framework that includes these newly added radioactive materials. See SECY-07-0062, ``Final Rule: Requirements for Expanded Definition of Byproduct Material,'' dated April 3, 2007, for information on that rulemaking. Two licensing guidance documents in the NUREG-1556 series are being revised along with these new regulations to provide guidance related to the new requirements: (1) NUREG-1556, Volume 13, Revision 1, ``Consolidated Guidance About Materials LicensesProgram-Specific Guidance About Commercial Radiopharmacy Licenses,'' and (2) NUREG-1556, Volume 9, Revision 2, ``Consolidated Guidance About Materials LicensesProgram Specific Guidance About Medical Use Licenses.'' A new volume in the NUREG-1556 series has also been developed to address the production of radioactive material using an accelerator. This NUREG is entitled NUREG-1556, Volume 21, ``Consolidated Guidance About Materials LicensesProgram-Specific Guidance About Possession Licenses for Production of Radioactive Material Using an Accelerator.'' This notice is announcing the availability of one of these three licensing guidance documents for public comment: NUREG-1556, Volume 9, Revision 2. The other two NUREGs were previously noticed for public comment: (1) NUREG-1556, Volume 13, Revision 1, on July 3, 2007 (72 FR 36526), and (2) NUREG-1556, Volume 21, on May 29, 2007 (72 FR 29555).

Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request
Document Number: E7-14438
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-07-26
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
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: Comprehensive Decommissioning Program, Including Annual Data Collection, OMB 3150- xxxx. 2. Current OMB approval number: OMB No. 3150-xxxx. 3. How often the collection is required: Annually (to keep site information current). 4. Who is required or asked to report: Agreement States who have signed Section 274(b) Agreements with NRC and are regulating uranium recovery and/or complex sites undergoing decommissioning. 5. The number of annual respondents: 34. 6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 677 hours (approximately 20 hours per respondent). 7. Abstract: Agreement States will be asked to provide information about uranium recovery and complex sites undergoing decommissioning regulated by the Agreement States on an annual basis. The information request will allow the NRC to compile, in a centralized location, more complete information on the status of decommissioning and decontamination in the United States in order to provide a national perspective on decommissioning. The information will be made available to the public by the NRC in order to ensure openness and promote communication to enhance public confidence in the national decommissioning program. This does not apply to information, such as trade secrets and commercial or financial information provided by the Agreement States as privileged or confidential. Information such as financial assurance and the status of decommissioning funding would need to be identified by the Agreement State as privileged or confidential, whereupon the NRC would withhold such information from public access and treat it as sensitive or non-sensitive, per the considerations in 10 CFR 2.390 and 9.17. This does not apply to financial assurance or decommissioning funding information that is already available to the public. Although specific details of the funding mechanisms are treated as confidential, beneficial lessons learned regarding the improvement of decommissioning-related funding will be shared with the Agreement States. Submit, by September 24, 2007, 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. OMB clearance requests are available at the NRC worldwide Web site: http:// www.nrc.gov/public-involve/doc-comment/omb/index.html. The document will be available on the NRC home page site for 60 days after the signature date of this notice. Comments and questions about the information collection requirements may be directed to the NRC Clearance Officer, Margaret A. Janney (T-5 F52), U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001, by telephone at 301-415-7245, or by Internet electronic mail to INFOCOLLECTS@NRC.GOV.
