(1) Applications for specific licenses must be filed on a form prescribed by the Authority. Information contained in previous applications, statements or reports filed with the Authority, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, or an Agreement State or a Licensing State or the Atomic Energy Commission may be incorporated by reference, provided that the reference is clear and specific.
(2) The Authority may at any time after the filing of the original application, and before the expiration of the license, require further statements in order to enable the Authority to determine whether the application shall be granted or denied or whether a license shall be modified or revoked.
(3) Each application must be signed by the applicant or licensee or a person duly authorized to act for and on the applicant's or licensee's behalf.
(4) Each applicant for a specific license is required to have a permanent in-state office with a copy of all required records available for inspection by the Authority.
(5) An application for a license filed pursuant to the rules in this division and divisions 105, 113, 115, 116, 117, and 121 of this chapter will be considered also as an application for licenses authorizing other activities for which licenses are required by the Act, provided that the application specifies the additional activities for which licenses are requested and complies with rules of the Authority and the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission as to applications for such licenses.
(6) Each new application for a radioactive material license must be accompanied by the fee prescribed by OAR 333-103-0010. Fees received by the Authority shall be refundable up to 10 calendar days if the application is withdrawn. No fee will be required to accompany an application for renewal or amendment of a license, except as provided in OAR 333-103-0010.
(7) An application for a license to receive and possess radioactive material for the conduct of any activity that the Authority has determined, pursuant to Subpart A of Part 51 of 10 CFR (Environmental Protection Regulations applicable to materials licensing), will significantly affect the quality of the environment, must be filed at least nine months prior to commencement of construction of the plant or facility in which the activity will be conducted and must be accompanied by any Environmental Report required pursuant to Subpart A of 10 CFR Part 51.
(8) An application for a specific license to use byproduct material in the form of a sealed source or in a device that contains the sealed source must either:
(a) Identify the source or device by manufacturer and model number as registered with the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission under 10 CFR Part 32.210 or with an Agreement State; or for a source or a device containing radium-226 or accelerator-produced radioactive material with a state under provisions comparable to 10 CFR Parts 32.210; or
(b) Contain the information identified in 10 CFR Part 32.210(c); or
(c) For sources or devices manufactured prior to October 23, 2012 that are not registered with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission or an Agreement State which the applicant is unable to provide all categories of information specified in 10 CFR Part 32.210(c) the applicant must provide:
(A) All available information identified in 10 CFR Part 32.210(c) concerning the source and if applicable the device; and
(B) Sufficient additional information to demonstrate that there is reasonable assurance that the radiation safety properties of the source or device are adequate to protect health and minimize danger to life and property. Information must include a description of the source or device, description of radiation safety features, intended use and associated operating experience and the results of a recent leak test:
(i) For sealed sources and devices allowed to be distributed without registration of safety information in accordance with 10 CFR Part 32.210(g)(1), the applicant may supply only the manufacturer, model number, and radionuclide and quantity; or
(ii) If it is not feasible to identify each sealed source and device individually, the applicant may propose constraints on the number and type of sealed sources and devices to be used and the conditions under which they will be used, in lieu of identifying each sealed source and device.
(9) As provided by OAR 333-102-0200, certain applications for specific licenses filed under this division and divisions 105, 113, 115, 116, 117, and 121 of this chapter must contain a proposed decommissioning funding plan or a certification of financial assurance for decommissioning as follows:
(10)
(a) Each application to possess radioactive materials in unsealed form, on foils or plated sources, or sealed in glass in excess of the quantities in 10 CFR 30.72, "Schedule C - Quantities of Radioactive Materials Requiring Consideration of the Need for an Emergency Plan for Responding to a Release,'' must contain either:
(A) An evaluation showing that the maximum dose to a person offsite due to a release of radioactive materials shall not exceed one rem effective dose equivalent or five rems to the thyroid; or
(B) An emergency plan for responding to a release of radioactive material.
(b) One or more of the following factors may be used to support an evaluation submitted under paragraph (10)(a)(A) of this rule:
(A) The radioactive material is physically separated so that only a portion could be involved in an accident;
(B) All or part of the radioactive material is not subject to release during an accident because of the way it is stored or packaged;
(C) The release fraction in the respirable size range shall be lower than the release fraction shown in 10 CFR Part 30.72 (Schedule C - Quantities of Radioactive Materials Requiring Consideration of the Need for an Emergency Plan for Responding to a Release) due to the chemical or physical form of the material;
(D) The solubility of the radioactive material shall reduce the dose received;
(E) Facility design or engineered safety features in the facility shall cause the release fraction to be lower than shown in 10 CFR Part 30.72;
(F) Operating restrictions or procedures shall prevent a release fraction as large as that shown in 10 CFR Part 30.72; or
(G) Other factors appropriate for the specific facility.
(c) An emergency plan for responding to a release of radioactive material submitted under paragraph (10)(a)(B) of this rule must include the following information:
(A) Facility description. A brief description of the licensee's facility and area near the site.
(B) Types of accidents. An identification of each type of radio-active materials accident for which protective actions may be needed.
(C) Classification of accidents. A classification system for classifying accidents as alerts or site area emergencies.
(D) Detection of accidents. Identification of the means of detecting each type of accident in a timely manner.
