I. Abstract
    This request is to seek clearance for the collection of routine
information requested of individuals (including but not limited to
federal employees, visitors, contractors, associates) who work with or
around sources of ionizing radiation on the NIST campus.
    The information is collected for the following purposes:
    (1) NIST is required by 10 CFR 20.1502 to monitor individuals who
may be exposed to ionizing radiation above specific levels. This form
will be used to collect information associated with this monitoring and
to determine the type of monitoring required.
    (2) NIST is required by 10 CFR 20.2106 to maintain records of
radiation exposure monitoring. This form will be used to ensure the
exposure information collected is properly associated with the
individual using unique identifiers. In addition, NIST must provide
reports to the monitored individuals when requested and to the NRC
annually. This form will be used to ensure the correct information is
provided to the individual.
II. Method of Collection
    The information will be collected in paper format and
electronically as a pdf form.
