The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 34, ``Licenses for Radiography and Radiation Safety Requirements for Radiographic Operations.'' 3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0007. 4. The form number if applicable: N/A. 5. How often the collection is required: Applications for new licenses and amendments may be submitted at any time. Applications for renewal are submitted every 10 years. Reports are submitted as events occur. 6.

An estimate of the number of annual responses: 1,116 (371 reporting responses plus 745 recordkeepers). 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 745 (647 Agreement State licensees plus 98 NRC licensees). 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 284,868 hours (503 reporting + 284,365 recordkeeping).
