  2. Background

    Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted a request for renewal of an existing collection of information to OMB for review entitled, ``NRC Form 748, National Source Tracking Transaction Report.'' 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 August 1, 2018, 83 FR 37535.

    1. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 748, National Source Tracking Transaction Report.

    2. OMB approval number: 3150-0202.

    3. Type of submission: Extension.

    4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 748.

    5. How often the collection is required or requested: On occasion (at completion of a transaction, and at inventory reconciliation).

    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Licensees that manufacture, receive, transfer, disassemble, or dispose of nationally tracked sources.

    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 18,927 (13,200 online + 480 batch upload + 5,247 NRC Form 748).

    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 1,400 (260 NRC Licensees + 1,140 Agreement State Licensees).

    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 1,963.1 hours.

    10. Abstract: In 2006, the NRC amended its regulations to implement a National Source Tracking System (NSTS) for certain sealed sources. The amendments require licensees to report certain transactions involving nationally tracked sources to the NSTS. These transactions include manufacture, transfer, receipt, disassembly, or disposal of the nationally tracked source. This information collection is mandatory and is used to populate the NSTS. National source tracking is part of a comprehensive radioactive source control program for radioactive materials of greatest concern. The NRC and Agreement States use the information provided by licensees in the NSTS to track the life cycle of the nationally tracked source from manufacture until disposal. NSTS enhances the ability of NRC and Agreement States to conduct inspections and investigations, communicate information to other government agencies, and verify legitimate ownership and use of nationally tracked sources.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 6th day of December 2018.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

    NRC Clearance Officer, Office of the Chief Information Officer.
