→ Review of petition regarding regulation of naturally-occurring and accelerator-produced radioactive materials

Comments Close:

The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission has received a petition for rulemaking from Matthew McKinley on behalf of the Organization of Agreement States. The Organization of Agreement States consists of state radiation control directors and staff 'who are responsible for the implementation of their respective Agreement State programs.' Their petition requests that the Nuclear Regulatory Committee 'revise its regulations to add radionuclides and their corresponding activities to the list of “Quantities of Licensed Material Requiring Labeling,”' which the petitioners believe to be 'outdated.' The Nuclear Regulatory Committee is 'examining the issues raised by [the petition]' to determine whether the Committee should initiate a rule to address the petition's concerns. 

Specific comments are being requested on four questions, which can be found here.
