Question 65: The following question concerns OMB approval

of the information collection requirements of the revised

Part 20. Section 20.1008 indicates that licensees shall

implement the provisions of all sections of revised Part 20

on or before January 1, 1993 and that if a licensee chooses

to implement revised Part 20 before then, the licensee

shall implement all provisions of revised Part 20 not

otherwise exempted by subsection 20.1008 (d). However,

section 20.1009 says that the information collection

requirements of the revised Part 20 will not become

effective until OMB approves them. Does this mean that

before OMB approval is obtained, a licensee can implement

all of the provisions of the revised Part 20 except the

information collection requirements?

Answer: OMB approval of the information collection

requirements of revised Part 20 was obtained on January 24,

1992, with the exception of NRC Forms 4 and 5. OMB

approval for these forms is expected in the future.
