Part 34 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, establishes radiation safety requirements for the use of radioactive material in industrial radiography. The information in the applications, reports and records is used by the NRC staff to ensure that the health and safety of the public is protected and that licensee possession and use of source and byproduct material is in compliance with license and regulatory requirements.

  Total Request Previously Approved Change Due to New Statute Change Due to Agency Discretion Change Due to Adjustment in Estimate Change Due to Potential Violation of the PRA
Annual Number of Responses 2,976 3,296 0 0 -320 0
Annual Time Burden (Hours) 243,547 270,760 0 0 -27,213 0
Annual Cost Burden (Dollars) 24,242 26,849 0 0 -2,607 0
The total burden decreased by 27,685 hours, from 270,760 to 243,075 hours. The burden for NRC and Agreement State licensees changed as follows: • NRC Licensees. The overall burden for NRC licensees decreased by 3,863 hours (from 33,185 to 29,322). The burden decreased due to the decrease in the number of NRC licensees by eight, from 74 to 66 since the last renewal. • Agreement State Licensees. The burden for Agreement State licensees decreased by 23,350 hours (from 237,575 to 214,225). The number of NRC licensees is known, whereas the total number of Agreement State licensees is an estimate based on NRC’s best information available from the Agreement States. The NRC uses the ratio of the total of NRC licensees to the total number Agreement State licensees to estimate the number of Agreement State respondents for each section. The NRC uses this ratio approach as the total number of Agreement State licensees subject to various Part 34 Sections is not known exactly and, therefore, must be estimated. The ratio used to estimate Agreement State respondents changed from 7.2 to 7.3. The number of Agreement State licensees decreased by 51, from 533 to 482. The current submission has correctly identified all respondents, including licensees reporting information to the NRC as well as those required to retain records. The number of respondents has decreased from 607 to 548 (66 NRC licensees plus 482 Agreement State licensees). Note that licensees reporting information are a subset of the licensees who are recordkeepers, and do not represent an additional group of licensees. The number of responses has decreased from 3,296 to 2,938 due to the number of events reported in the Nuclear Materials Events Database. The total number of responses per year decreased from 37 to 24. The total burden hours per year decreased from 635.50 to 240. All the events reported were equipment failure or malfunction issues under Part 3.4.101 (a)&(b).
