NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[Docket No. NRC-2012-0230]


Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information 
collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and 
solicitation of public comment.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) invites public 
comment about our intention to request the OMB's approval for renewal 
of an existing information collection that is summarized below. We are 
required to publish this notice in the Federal Register 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: 10 CFR Part 32--
``Specific Domestic Licenses to Manufacture or Transfer Certain Items 
Containing Byproduct Material.''
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0001.
    3. How often the collection is required: There is a one-time 
submittal of information to receive a certificate of registration for a 
sealed source and/or device. Certificates of registration for sealed 
sources and/or devices can be amended at any time. In addition, 
licensee recordkeeping must be performed on an on-going basis, and 
reporting of transfer of byproduct material must be reported every 
calendar year, and in some cases, every calendar quarter.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: All specific licensees who 
manufacture or initially transfer items containing byproduct material 
for sale or distribution to general licensees, or persons exempt from 
licensing, medical use product distributors to specific licensees, and 
those requesting a certificate of registration for a sealed source and/
or device.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 959 (246 NRC licensees and 
registration certificate holders and 713 Agreement State licensees and 
registration certificate holders).
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 164,540 (16,346 reporting hours, 148,093 recordkeeping 
hours, and 101 third-party disclosures hours).
    7. Abstract: Part 32 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
(10 CFR), establishes requirements for specific licenses for the 
introduction of byproduct material into products or materials and 
transfer of the products or materials to general licensees, or persons 
exempt from licensing, medical use product distributors to specific 
licensees, and those requesting a certificate of registration for a 
sealed source and/or device. It also prescribes requirements governing 
holders of the specific licenses. Some of the requirements are for 
information which must be submitted in an application for a certificate 
of registration for a sealed source and/or device, records which must 
be kept, reports which must be submitted, and information which must be 
forwarded to general licensees and persons exempt from licensing. As 
mentioned, 10 CFR Part 32 also prescribes requirements for the issuance 
of certificates of registration (concerning radiation safety 
information about a product) to manufacturers or initial transferors of 
sealed sources and devices. Submission or retention of the information 
is mandatory for persons subject to the 10 CFR Part 32 requirements. 
The information is used by the NRC to make licensing and other 
regulatory determinations concerning the use of radioactive byproduct 
material in products and devices.
    Submit, by January 22, 2013, 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?
