Or. Admin. R. 333-102-0290 - Manufacture and Distribution of Sources or Devices Containing Byproduct Material for Medical Use

(1) An application for a specific license to manufacture and distribute sources and devices containing byproduct material to persons licensed pursuant to division 116 of this chapter for use as a calibration, transmission, or reference source, or for the uses listed in OAR 333-116-0400, 333-116-0420, 333-116-0480 and 333-116-0485 will be approved if:
(a) The applicant satisfies the general requirements in OAR 333-102-0200.
(b) The applicant submits sufficient information regarding each type of source or device pertinent to an evaluation of its radiation safety, including:
(A) The radioactive material contained, its chemical and physical form and amount;
(B) Details of design and construction of the source or device;
(C) Procedures for, and results of, prototype tests to demonstrate that the source or device will maintain its integrity under stresses likely to be encountered in normal use and accidents;
(D) For devices containing radioactive material, the radiation profile of a prototype device;
(E) Details of quality control procedures to assure that production sources and devices meet the standards of the design and prototype tests;
(F) Procedures and standards for calibrating sources and devices;
(G) Legend and methods for labeling sources and devices as to their radioactive content; and
(H) Instructions for handling and storing the source or device from the radiation safety standpoint; these instructions are to be included on a durable label attached to the source or device or attached to a permanent storage container for the source or device. Provided, that instructions that are too lengthy for such a label may be summarized on the label and printed in detail on a brochure that is referenced on the label.
(c) The label affixed to the source or device, or to the permanent storage container for the source or device, contains information on the radionuclide, quantity, date of assay and a statement that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has approved distribution of the (name of source or device) to persons licensed to use radioactive material identified in OAR 333-116-0190, 333-116-0400, or 333-116-0420, as appropriate, and to persons who hold an equivalent license issued by an Agreement State or the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission. However, labels worded in accordance with requirements that were in place on March 30, 1987 may be used until March 30, 1989.
(d) The source or device has been registered in the Sealed Source and Device Registry.
(2) In the event the applicant desires that the source or device be required to be tested for leakage of radioactive material at intervals longer than six months:
(a) The applicant must include in the application sufficient information to demonstrate that such longer interval is justified by performance characteristics of the source or device or similar sources or devices and by design features that have a significant bearing on the probability or consequences of leakage of radioactive material from the source; and
(b) In determining the acceptable interval for test of leakage of radioactive material, the Authority will consider information that includes, but is not limited to:
(A) Primary containment or source capsule;
(B) Protection of primary containment;
(C) Method of sealing containment;
(D) Containment construction materials;
(E) Form of contained radioactive material;
(F) Maximum temperature withstood during prototype tests;
(G) Maximum pressure withstood during prototype tests;
(H) Maximum quantity of contained radioactive material;
(I) Radiotoxicity of contained radioactive material; and
(J) Operating experience with identical sources or devices similarly designed and constructed sources or devices.
