U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) regulations require licensees who ship, receive, or adjust their physical inventory of source or special nuclear material (SNM) to document and report such activities. The reports are submitted using U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)/NRC Form 741, "Nuclear Material Transaction Report." Licensees may need to provide additional information on some imports or exports of source or SNM. The additional information is reported using DOE/NRC Form 740M, "Concise Note." This NUREG contains instructions for preparing these forms.

The information collections contained in this NUREG are covered by DOE/NRC Forms 741 and 740M, which the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved under approval numbers 3150-0003 and 3150-0057. The estimated burden per response to comply with this mandatory collection request is 1 hour 15 minutes for DOE/NRC Form 741 and 45 minutes for DOE/NRC Form 740M.
