SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing a revision 
to an existing guide in the agency's ``Regulatory Guide'' series. This 
series was developed to describe and make available to the public 
information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for 
implementing specific parts of the agency's regulations, techniques 
that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated 
accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications 
for permits and licenses.
    Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 10.7, ``Guide for the Preparation of 
Applications for Licenses for Laboratory and Industrial Use of Small 
Quantities of Byproduct Material,'' was issued with a temporary 
identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG-0017. This guide directs 
the reader to the type of information needed by the NRC staff to 
evaluate an application for a specific license for laboratories and 
industries to use megabecquerel (MBq) (millicurie (mCi)) quantities of 
byproduct material (reactor- or accelerator-produced radionuclides).
    The regulatory framework that the NRC has established for 
laboratory and industrial use of small quantities of byproduct material 
is in Title 10, Part 30, ``Rules of General Applicability to Domestic 
Licensing of Byproduct Material,'' of the Code of Federal Regulations 
(10 CFR part 30).
    This regulatory guide endorses the methods and procedures for 
applying for a license for laboratory and industrial use of small 
quantities of byproduct material contained in the current revisions of 
NUREG-1556, Volume 7, ``Consolidated Guidance About Materials Licenses: 
Program-Specific Guidance About Academic, Research and Development, and 
Other Licenses of Limited Scope'' and NUREG-1556, Volume 12, 
``Consolidated Guidance about Material Licenses: Program-Specific 
Guidance About Possession and Licenses for Manufacturing and 
Distribution,'' as a process that the NRC staff finds acceptable.

II. Further Information

    In April 2008, DG-0017 was published with a public comment period 
of 60 days from the issuance of the guide. No comments were received 
and the public comment period closed on June 30, 2008. Electronic 
copies of Regulatory Guide 10.7, Revision 2 are available through the 
NRC's public Web site under ``Regulatory Guides'' at http://
www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/.
    In addition, regulatory guides are available for inspection at the 
NRC's Public Document Room (PDR), which is located at Room O-1F21, One 
White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852-
2738. The PDR's mailing address is USNRC PDR, Washington, DC 20555-
0001. The PDR can also be reached by telephone at (301) 415-4737 or 
(800) 397-4209, by fax at (301) 415-3548, and by e-mail to

    Regulatory guides are not copyrighted, and NRC approval is not 
required to reproduce them.
