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.

The previous burden for this collection was 1,963 hours and 18,927 responses. Based on data from the last three years, the burden is expected to slightly increase to 2,093 hours and 19,945 responses (an increase of 130 hours and 1,018 responses). The estimated burden has increased since the average number of NSTS transactions has slightly increased over the last three years. In addition, the fee rate has increased from $263 to $288/hr.
