Nev. Admin. Code § 459.0205 - "As low as is reasonably achievable" defined

Current through August 4, 2021

"As low as is reasonably achievable" means making every reasonable effort to maintain exposures to radiation as far below the applicable limits as is practical, in a manner that is consistent with the purpose for which the licensed or registered activity is undertaken, taking into account:

1. The state of the technology;
2. The costs of improving the technology, including a consideration of the extent to which any improvements would benefit the health and safety of the public;
3. The utilization of licensed or registered sources of radiation in the public interest; and
4. Any other societal and socioeconomic considerations, including, without limitation, the potential for death or other harm that could reasonably be expected to result from transportation accidents that occur during the process of decontamination and waste disposal.
