Ill. Admin. Code tit. 35, § 1000.102 - Purpose and Policy

Current through Vol. 46, No. 16, April 15, 2022

a) The regulations in this Part establish standards for protection against radiological air pollutants associated with materials and activities under licenses issued by the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission pursuant to the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 ( 42 U.S.C. 5801 et seq.) as amended, and the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 ( 42 U.S.C. 5801 et seq.)
b) It is the policy of the Pollution Control Board that persons subject to this Part shall, in addition to complying with the requirements of this Part, make every reasonable effort to maintain radiation exposures in, and releases of radioactive materials to, unrestricted areas as low as is reasonably achievable. The term "as low as is reasonably achievable" means as low as is reasonably achievable taking into account the state of technology, the economics of improvements in relation to benefits to the public health and safety, and other societal and socioeconomic considerations, in relation to the utilization of atomic energy in the public interest. Persons licensed by the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission to operate light-water-cooled nuclear power reactors shall be deemed to satisfy the requirements of this subsection if they achieve the design objectives and limiting conditions for operation set out in 10 CFR 50, Appendix I (1984). This Part incorporates no further amendments or editions to those objectives and conditions for operation.
