Rulemaking To Establish a Regulatory Framework for the Expanded Definition of Byproduct Material Established by the Energy Policy Act; Meeting
Section 651(e) of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 expanded the definition of byproduct material as defined in the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended. To comply with the Congressional mandate, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is changing its regulations to expand the definition of byproduct material to include the following materials produced, extracted, or converted after extraction for use for commercial, medical, or research activities: (1) Discrete sources of radium-226, (2) accelerator-produced radioactive material, and (3) discrete sources of naturally occurring radioactive material, other than source material, that the Commission, in consultation with the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, the Secretary of Energy, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and other appropriate Federal agencies, determines would pose a threat to public health and safety or the common defense and security similar to the threat posed by a discrete source of radium-226. To aid in the rulemaking process, NRC is holding a public meeting with a ``roundtable'' format (defined further in the body of this notice) to solicit input, that may be useful in drafting a proposed rule, from stakeholders. The meeting is open to the public, and all interested parties may attend. Individuals unable to attend the meeting will be able to listen by teleconference.
