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 November 20, 2012 (77 FR 69661).
    Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted:
    1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension.
    2. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR Part 32--
``Specific Domestic Licenses to Manufacture or Transfer Certain Items 
Containing Byproduct Material.''
    3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0001.
    4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 653, NRC Form 653A, and 
NRC Form 653B.
    5. 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.
    6. Who will be 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.

    7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 4,789 (3,559 NRC, 
1,162 Agreement States and 68 third-party).
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 959 (246 NRC 
licensees, registration certificate holders and 713 Agreement State 
licensees and registration certificate holders).
    9. An estimate of the total 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).
    10. 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.
    The public may examine and have copied for a fee publicly available 
documents, including the final supporting statement, at the NRC's 
Public Document Room, Room O-1F21, One White Flint North, 11555

are available at the NRC's Web site: http://www.nrc.gov/public-involve/doc-comment/omb/. The document will be available on the NRC's home page 
site for 60 days after the signature date of this notice.

be considered if it is practical to do so, but assurance of 
consideration cannot be given to comments received after this date.
