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 
    Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted:
    1. The title of the information collection: The Office of Federal 
and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs Requests to 
Agreement States for Information.
    2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0029.
    3. How often the collection is required: One-time or as-needed.
    4. Who is required or asked to report: Thirty-seven Agreement 
States who have signed Section 274(b) Agreements with the NRC.
    5. The number of annual respondents: 37.
    6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement

    7. Abstract: The Agreement States are asked on a one-time or as-
needed basis to respond to a specific incident, to gather information 
on licensing and inspection practices or other technical and training-
related information. In 2007, the NRC policy changed to begin funding 
training for Agreement State materials licensing and inspection staff 
and associated travel to attend courses offered through the NRC 
training program. The results of such information requests, which are 
authorized under Section 274(b) of the Atomic Energy Act, are utilized 
in part by the NRC in preparing responses to Congressional inquiries. 
The Agreement State comments are also solicited in the areas of 
proposed procedures, implementing guidance, and in the development of 
new and revised regulations and policies.
    Submit, by August 5, 2013, 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?
