Health Physics Questions and Answers - Question 65

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.
