On July 26, 2010, the U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) published for public comment a proposed rule to amend its regulations to require that the initial distribution of source material to exempt persons or general licensees be explicitly authorized by a specific license. The proposed rule would also modify the existing possession and use requirements of the general license for small quantities of source material and revise, clarify, or delete certain source material exemptions from licensing. The public comment period for this proposed rule was to have expired on November 23, 2010. The NRC has determined a need to develop draft implementation guidance to support this proposed rule and plans to publish such draft guidance no later than early January 2011. In order to allow the public sufficient time to review and comment on the proposed rule with the benefit of review of the draft implementation guidance, the NRC has decided to extend the comment period until February 15, 2011.
