Program-Specific Guidance About Exempt Distribution Licenses
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is revising its licensing guidance for licenses authorizing initial distribution of byproduct material or source material to persons exempt from the requirements (exempt distribution) for an NRC license. The NRC is requesting public comment on draft NUREG-1556, Volume 8, Revision 1, ``Consolidated Guidance About Materials Licenses: Program-Specific Guidance About Exempt Distribution Licenses.'' The document has been updated from the original version to include information on safety culture, protection of sensitive information, and changes in regulatory policies and practices. This document is intended for use by applicants, licensees, and the NRC staff.
