The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing interim staff guidance for implementation of the final rule, Distribution of Source Material to Exempt Persons and to General Licensees and Revision of General License and Exemptions (Distribution of Source Material Rule). The Distribution of Source Material Rule amended the NRC's regulations to require that the initial distribution of source material to exempt persons or to general licensees be explicitly authorized by a specific license. The Distribution of Source Material Rule also modified the existing possession and use requirements of the general license for small quantities of source material and revised, clarified, or deleted certain source material exemptions from licensing.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending its regulations to require that the initial distribution of source material to exempt persons or to general licensees be explicitly authorized by a specific license, which includes new reporting requirements. The rule is intended to provide the NRC with timely information on the types and quantities of source material distributed for use either under exemption or by general licensees. In addition, the rule modifies the existing possession and use requirements of the general license for small quantities of source material to better align the requirements with current health and safety standards. Finally, the rule revises, clarifies, or deletes certain source material exemptions from licensing to make the exemptions more risk informed. This rule affects manufacturers and distributors of certain products and materials containing source material and certain persons using source material under general license and under exemptions from licensing.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a new regulatory guide (RG) 4.22, “Decommissioning Planning During Operations.” The guide describes a method that the NRC staff considers acceptable for use by holders of licenses in complying with the NRC's Decommissioning Planning Rule (DPR) (76 FR 35512; June 17, 2011). The DPR went into effect on December 17, 2012, and is intended to minimize the likelihood of new “legacy sites,” which are NRC-licensed facilities with insufficient resources to complete decommissioning activities and termination of a license at the end of operations.
