Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Review; Comment Request

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of the OMB review of information collection and 
solicitation of public comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has recently 
submitted to OMB for review the following proposal for the collection 
of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). The NRC hereby informs potential 
respondents that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a 
person is not required to respond to, a collection of information 
unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The NRC 
published a Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period on 
this information collection on October 13, 2011 (76 FR 63667).
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.

[[Page 6144]]

    2. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 313, 
``Application for Materials License'' and NRC Forms 313A (RSO), 313A 
(AMP), 313A (ANP), 313A (AUD), 313A (AUT), and 313A (AUS).
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0120.
    4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 313.
    5. How often the collection is required: There is a one-time 
submittal of the NRC Form 313 (which may include the NRC Form 313A 
series of forms) with information to receive a license. Once a specific 
license has been issued, there is a 10-year resubmittal of the NRC Form 
313 (which may include the NRC form 313A series of forms) with 
information for renewal of the license. Amendment requests are 
submitted as needed by the licensee.
    There is a one-time submittal for all limited specific medical use 
applicants of a NRC Form 313A series form to have each new individual 
identified as a Radiation Safety Officer (RSO), authorized medical 
physicist (AMP), authorized nuclear pharmacist (ANP), or authorized 
user or a subsequent submittal of additional information for one of 
these individuals to be identified with a new authorization on a 
limited specific medical use license.
    NRC Form 313A (RSO) is also used by medical broad scope licensees 
when identifying a new individual as an RSO or adding an additional RSO 
authorization for the individual. This submittal may occur when 
applying for a new license, amendment, or renewal.
    NRC Form 313A (ANP) is also used by commercial nuclear pharmacy 
licensees when requesting an individual be identified for the first 
time as ANP. This submittal may occur when applying for a new license, 
amendment, or renewal.
    6. Who will be required or asked to report: All applicants 
requesting a license, amendment or renewal of a license for byproduct 
or source material.
    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 19,432 (2,362 NRC 
licensees and 17,070 Agreement State licensees).
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 19,432 (2,362 NRC 
licensees and 17,070 Agreement State licensees).
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to 
complete the requirement or request: 83,558 hours (10,157 NRC and 
73,401 Agreement State hours).
    10. Abstract: Applicants must submit NRC Form 313, which may 
include the six forms in the 313A series, to obtain a specific license 
to possess, use, or distribute byproduct or source material. These six 
forms in the 313A series are: (1) NRC Form 313A (RSO), ``Radiation 
Safety Officer Training and Experience and Preceptor Attestation''; (2) 
NRC Form 313A (AMP), ``Authorized Medical Physicist Training and 
Experience and Preceptor Attestation''; (3) NRC Form 313A (ANP), 
``Authorized Nuclear Pharmacist Training and Experience and Preceptor 
Attestation''; (4) NRC Form 313A (AUD), ``Authorized User Training and 
Experience and Preceptor Attestation (for uses defined under 35.100, 
35.200, and 35.500)''; (5) NRC Form 313A (AUT), ``Authorized User 
Training and Experience and Preceptor Attestation (for uses defined 
under 35.300)''; and (6) NRC Form 313A (AUS), ``Authorized User 
Training and Experience and Preceptor Attestation (for uses defined 
under 35.400 and 35.600).'' 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.
