Wash. Admin. Code § 246-237-071 - Additional requirements for transfer of Category 1 and Category 2 quantities of radioactive material

Current through Register Vol. 21-24, December 15, 2021

A licensee transferring a Category 1 or Category 2 quantity of radioactive material to a licensee of the department, the NRC, or an agreement state shall meet the license verification provisions listed in this section instead of those listed in WAC 246-232-080(4):

(1) Any licensee transferring Category 1 quantities of radioactive material to a licensee of the department, the NRC, or an agreement state, prior to conducting such transfer, shall verify with the department, the NRC's license verification system, or the license issuing authority that the transferee's license authorizes receipt of the type, form, and quantity of radioactive material to be transferred and that the licensee is authorized to receive radioactive material at the location requested for delivery. If the verification is conducted by contacting the license issuing authority, the transferor shall document the verification. For transfers within the same organization, the licensee does not need to verify the transfer.
(2) Any licensee transferring Category 2 quantities of radioactive material to a licensee of the department, the NRC, or an agreement state, prior to conducting such transfer, shall verify with the department, the NRC's license verification system, or the license issuing authority that the transferee's license authorizes receipt of the type, form, and quantity of radioactive material to be transferred. If the verification is conducted by contacting the license issuing authority, the transferor shall document the verification. For transfers within the same organization, the licensee does not need to verify the transfer.
(3) In an emergency where the licensee cannot reach the department or the license issuing authority, and the NRC license verification system is nonfunctional, the licensee may accept a written certification by the transferee that it is authorized by license to receive the type, form, and quantity of radioactive material to be transferred. The certification must include the license number, current revision or amendment number, issuing agency, expiration date and, for a Category 1 shipment, the authorized address. The licensee shall keep a copy of the certification. The certification must be confirmed by use of NRC's license verification system or by contacting the department or the license issuing authority by the end of the next business day.
(4) The transferor shall keep a copy of the verification documentation as a record for three years.
