Or. Admin. R. 333-102-0293 - Requirements for License to Manufacture and Distribute Industrial Products Containing Depleted Uranium for Mass-Volume Applications

(1) An application for a specific license to manufacture industrial products or devices containing depleted uranium for use pursuant to OAR 333-102-0106 or equivalent regulations of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission or an Agreement State will be approved if:
(a) The applicant satisfies the general requirements specified in OAR 333-102-0200;
(b) The applicant submits sufficient information relating to the design, manufacture, prototype testing, quality control procedures, labeling or marking, proposed uses and potential hazards of the industrial product or device to provide reasonable assurance that possession, use or transfer of the depleted uranium in the product or device is not likely to cause any individual to receive in any period of one calendar quarter a radiation dose in excess of ten percent of the limits specified in OAR 333-120-0100; and
(c) The applicant submits sufficient information regarding the industrial product or device and the presence of depleted uranium for a mass-volume application in the product or device to provide reasonable assurance that unique benefits will accrue to the public because of the usefulness of the product or device.
(2) In the case of an industrial product or device whose unique benefits are questionable, the Authority will approve an application for a specific license under this rule only if the product or device is found to combine a high degree of utility and low probability of uncontrolled disposal and dispersal of significant quantities of depleted uranium into the environment.
(3) The Authority may deny any application for a specific license under this rule if the end use(s) of the industrial product or device cannot be reasonably foreseen.
(4) Each person licensed pursuant to section (1) of this rule must:
(a) Maintain the level of quality control required by the license in the manufacture of the industrial product or device; and in the installation of the depleted uranium into the product or device;
(b) Label or mark each unit to:
(A) Identify the manufacturer of the product or device and the number of the license under which the product or device was manufactured, the fact that the product or device contains depleted uranium and the quantity of depleted uranium in each product or device; and
(B) State that the receipt, possession, use and transfer of the product or device are subject to a general license or the equivalent and the regulations of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission or an Agreement State.
(c) Assure that the depleted uranium before being installed in each product or device has been impressed with the following legend clearly legible through any plating or other covering: Depleted Uranium.
(A) Furnish a copy of the general license contained in OAR 333-102-0106 to each person to whom he transfers depleted uranium in a product or device for use pursuant to the general license contained in 333-102-0106; or
(B) Furnish a copy of the general license contained in the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's or Agreement State's regulation equivalent to OAR 333-102-0106 and a copy of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's or Agreement State's certificate, or alternatively, furnish a copy of the general license contained in 333-102-0106 to each person to whom depleted uranium in a product or device is transferred for use pursuant to the general license of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission or an Agreement State, with a note explaining that use of the product or device is regulated by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission or Agreement State under requirements substantially the same as those in 333-102-0106.
(d) Report to the Authority all transfers of industrial products or devices to persons for use under the general license in OAR 333-102-0106. Such report must identify each general licensee by name and address, an individual by name or position who may constitute a point of contact between the Authority and the general licensee, the type and model number of device transferred and the quantity of depleted uranium contained in the product or device. The report must be submitted within 30 days after the end of each calendar quarter in which such a product or device is transferred to the generally licensed person. If no transfers have been made to persons granted a general license by OAR 333-102-0106 during the reporting period, the report must so indicate.
(e) Report to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission all transfers of industrial products or devices to persons for use under the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission general license in section 40.25 of 10 CFR Part 40.
(A) Report to the responsible state agency all transfers of devices manufactured and distributed pursuant to OAR 333-102-0115 for use under a general license in that state's regulations equivalent to 333-102-0106.
(B) Such report must identify each general licensee by name and address, an individual by name or position who may constitute a point of contact between the Authority and the general licensee, the type and model number of the device transferred and the quantity of depleted uranium contained in the product or device. The report must be submitted within 30 days after the end of each calendar quarter in which such product or device is transferred to the generally licensed person.
(C) If no transfers have been made to U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission licensees during the reporting period, this information must be reported to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
(f) If no transfers have been made to general licensees within a particular Agreement State during the reporting period, this information must be reported to the responsible Agreement State Agency upon the request of that Agency.
(g) Keep records showing the name, address and point of contact for each general licensee to whom he transfers depleted uranium in industrial products or devices for use pursuant to the general license provided in OAR 333-102-0101(4) or equivalent regulations of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission or an Agreement State. The records must be maintained until inspection by the Authority and must show the date of each transfer, the quantity of depleted uranium in each product or device transferred and compliance with the report requirements of section (9) of this rule.
(h) Licensees required to submit emergency plans by OAR 333-102-0190(10) must follow the emergency plan approved by the Commission. The licensee may change the plan without Commission approval if the changes do not decrease the effectiveness of the plan. The licensee must furnish the change to the Director of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555 and to affected offsite response organizations within six months after the change is made. Proposed changes that decrease the effectiveness of the approved emergency plan may not be implemented without application to and prior approval by the Authority.
