SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The IAEA periodically revised its Basic Safety Standards to reflect new information and accumulated experience. The current version was published in 1996 (http://wwwpub.iaea.org/MTCD/publications/PDF/ ss-115-web/Pub996_web-1a.pdf). The revision now underway is based on the recommendations of the International Commission on Radiological Protection PO 00000 Frm 00131 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (ICRP) contained in ICRP Publication 103, published in late 2007. On January 28, 2010, the IAEA posted a draft revision of the BSS for comment by each of the member states of the IAEA. The draft (DS379) is available for viewing and downloading on the Internet at: http://www-ns.iaea.org/ standards/documents/draft-msposted.asp. Several other International Organizations, including the World Health Organization and the International Labor Organization, are also providing the draft to their Member States for comment. The United States is a Member State of each of these International Organizations, and the U.S. Government will be developing coordinated comments on the draft revision. The BSS provides requirements for the wide range of radiation protection situations which may exist. The draft report organizes these requirements into three principle exposure situations, namely: Planned exposure situations, in which an activity that may cause radiation exposure can be planned in advance, and appropriate controls put into place; emergency exposure situations, that arises as a result of an accident, a malicious act, or any other unexpected event, and requires prompt action in order to avoid or reduce adverse consequences; and existing exposure situations, in which the circumstances causing exposure already exist when a decision on the need for control has to be taken (such as radon in homes). The requirements in the existing BSS, and those contained in the draft cover areas which may be under the jurisdiction of the NRC, or may be part of programs under other Federal Agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Labor, and the Department of Energy, or may be under the jurisdiction of various State Agencies. Many Member States of the IAEA will utilize the BSS as one basis for the regulations for radiation safety in their countries. Adherence to the provisions of the BSS is mandated for IAEA’s own conduct, and any uses of radiation or radioactive material where the IAEA is providing technical assistance and support to the Member State. Users of radiation and radioactive materials from the United States who may do business in these countries may therefore be particularly interested in this draft version. The United States does not directly adopt IAEA standards, but may consider such standards as a useful point of reference in the development of proposals under the Administrative E:\FR\FM\05FEN1.SGM 05FEN1
