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 8.18, ``Information Relevant to 
Ensuring that Occupational Radiation Exposures at Medical Institutions 
will be As Low As is Reasonably Achievable,'' was issued with a 
temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG-8037.
    This guide is directed specifically toward medical licensees and 
recommends methods that the staff of the NRC considers acceptable to 
maintain occupational exposures as low as is reasonably achievable 
(ALARA) in medical institutions. In a medical institution, certain 
persons other than employees are exposed to radiation from licensed 
radioactive material. These persons include visitors and patients other 
than those being treated with radioactive material. This guide 
addresses the protection of these individuals. The content of this 
guide is also applicable to veterinary medical institutions, insofar as 
specific diagnostic or therapeutic procedures are performed. Similar 
protection practices are applicable for keeping employee and visitor 
exposures ALARA, whether the patients are animal or human.

II. Further Information

of 60 days from the issuance of the guide. The public comment period
