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.

Annual Number of Responses 18,927 20,306 0 0 -1,379 0

The previous burden for this collection was 2,209.7 hours and 20,306 responses. The burden is expected to decrease to 1,963.1 hours and 18,927 responses (a decrease of 246.6 hours and 1,379 responses). The burden estimate for the next three years is based on actual data from the system from the past three years (submission counts by reporting method), as well as staff knowledge of the industry. The NRC anticipates that the number of submissions over the clearance period will be consistent with the number of submissions for the past three years. In addition, the fee rate has decreased from $279 to $263/hr.
