collection request to OMB and solicitation of public comment.


SUMMARY: 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: 10 CFR Part 30--Rules

    3. How often the collection is required: Required reports are

and evaluated on a continuing basis as events occur. There is a one-
time submittal of information to receive a license. Renewal 
applications are submitted every 10 years. Information submitted in 
previous applications may be referenced without being resubmitted. In 
addition, recordkeeping must be performed on an on-going basis.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: All persons applying for or 
holding a license to manufacture, produce, transfer, receive, acquire, 
own, possess, or use radioactive byproduct material.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 5,529 NRC licensees and 16,000 
Agreement State licensees.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement 
or request: 46,937 hours for the NRC licensees (19,364 reporting + 
27,573 recordkeeping) and 111,753 hours for the Agreement State 
licensees (38,344 reporting + 73,409 recordkeeping).
    7. Abstract: 10 CFR Part 30 establishes requirements that are 
applicable to all persons in the United States governing domestic 
licensing of radioactive byproduct material. The application, reporting 
and recordkeeping requirements are necessary to permit the NRC to make 
a determination whether the possession, use, and transfer of byproduct 
material is in conformance with the Commission's regulations for 
protection of the public health and safety.
    Submit, by June 1, 1999, comments that address the following 
    1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC 
to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical 
    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?
