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: DOE/NRC Form 742, 
``Material Balance Report,'' and DOE/NRC Form 742C, ``Physical 
Inventory Listing,'' and NUREG/BR-0007, ``Instructions for the 
Preparation and Distribution of Material Status Reports.''
    2. Current OMB approval number: DOE/NRC Form 742: 3150-0004. DOE/
NRC Form 742C: 3150-0058.
    3. How often the collection is required: DOE/NRC Form 742 is 
submitted once a year within thirty days after the start of a physical 
inventory as part of the material accounting and control procedures. 
DOE/NRC Form 742C is submitted once a year when licensees complete 
their physical inventory as part of the material accounting and control 
procedures.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: DOE/NRC Form 742, Persons 
licensed to possess specified quantities of special nuclear material or 
source material. Any licensee, including nuclear reactor licensees, 
possessing, or who had possessed in the previous reporting period, at 
any one time and location, special nuclear material in a quantity 
totaling one gram or more shall complete DOE/NRC Form 742. In addition, 
each licensee, Federal or State, who is authorized to possess, at any 
one time or location, 1 kilogram of foreign obligated source material, 
is required to file with the NRC an annual statement of source material 
inventory which is foreign-obligated. DOE/NRC Form 742C, Persons 
licensed to possess specified quantities of special nuclear material or 
source material. Any licensee, including nuclear reactor licensees, 
possessing, or who had possessed in the previous reporting period, at 
any one time and location, special nuclear material in a quantity 
totaling one gram or more shall complete DOE/NRC Form 742C.
    5. The number of annual respondents: DOE/NRC Form 742: 360 
respondents. DOE/NRC Form 742C: 360 respondents.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: DOE/NRC Form 742: 1,260 hours. DOE/NRC Form 742C: 1,440 
hours.
    7. Abstract: The NRC is required to collect nuclear material 
transaction information for domestic safeguards use and make it 
available to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Licensees 
use DOE/NRC Form 742 to report the material balance within 30 days 
after the start of a physical inventory of nuclear materials actually 
present at licensee's facilities, including the quantities of foreign 
obligated source material. Licensees use DOE/NRC Form 742C to report 
the material status based on a physical inventory of nuclear materials 
actually present at licensee's facilities. These forms enable the NRC 
to collect, retrieve, analyze, and submit the data to IAEA to fulfill 
its reporting responsibilities.
    This information collection request will also categorize these 
forms as common forms. Once OMB approves the use of these common forms, 
all Federal agencies using the form may request use of this common form 
without additional 60- or 30-day notice and comment

requirements. At that point, each agency will account for its number of 
respondents and the burden associated with the agency's use.
    Submit, by April 28, 2014, 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?
