Program-Specific Guidance About Self-Shielded Irradiators
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is revising its licensing guidance for materials licenses for self-shielded irradiators. The NRC is requesting public comment on draft NUREG-1556, Volume 5, Revision 1, ``Consolidated Guidance About Materials Licenses: Program-Specific Guidance About Self-Shielded Irradiators.'' The document has been updated from the original version to include information on safety culture, security of radioactive materials, protection of sensitive information, and changes in regulatory policies and practices. This document is intended for use by applicants, licensees, and the NRC staff.
