Proposed Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide (RG) 8.4, ‘‘Personnel Monitoring Device—Direct-Reading Pocket Dosimeters,’’ was issued with a temporary identification as Draft Regulatory Guide, DG–8036 on April 9, 2010 (75 FR 18241).

The regulatory requirements for the use of personnel monitoring devices are mainly established in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, (CFR) part 20, ‘‘Standards for Protection Against E:\FR\FM\20JNN1.SGM 20JNN1
