The provisions of this part apply to radiation doses received by members of the public in the general environment and to radioactive materials introduced into the general environment as the result of operations which are part of a nuclear fuel cycle.

Title 40 published on 10-May-2017 04:28
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 40 CFR Part 190 after this date.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is announcing an extension of the public comment period for the Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) requesting public comment and information on potential approaches to updating the EPA's “Environmental Radiation Protection Standards for Nuclear Power Operations”. The EPA published the ANPR on February 4, 2014 in the Federal Register , which included a request for comments on or before June 4, 2014. The purpose of this action is to extend the public comment period an additional 60 days.
This Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) requests public comment and information on potential approaches to updating the Environmental Protection Agency's “Environmental Radiation Protection Standards for Nuclear Power Operations” (40 CFR part 190). These standards, originally issued in 1977, limit radiation releases and doses to the public from normal operation of nuclear power plants and other uranium fuel cycle facilities—that is, facilities involved in the milling, conversion, fabrication, use and reprocessing of uranium fuel for generating commercial electrical power. These standards were the earliest radiation rules developed by EPA and are based on nuclear power technology and the understanding of radiation biology current at that time. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is responsible for implementing and enforcing these standards.
