The State of Wyoming supports the regulator of all current licenses for which radioactive materials are governed by their agreement. The NRC would retain the regulatory power of the other 100 state licensees who are not linked to uranium mills. What will happen to the licence applications that have been challenged before the Atomic Safety Licensing Board (ASLB) and have not yet been finalized with the Entry of the Wyoming Agreement? If there are programmatic agreements for current licences, who will ensure that the terms of these agreements are met if the NRC relinquishes its authority? Will nrc amend or denounce these agreements? How many states are currently in the state program agreement? Nrc is currently reviewing the impact of transferring a licence to Wyoming if a programmatic agreement or memorandum is available on the website. NRC supports states that have expressed interest in implementing NRA regulatory assistance programs in accordance with the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 as amended. Section 274 of the Act provides a legal basis on which NRC cedes some of its regulatory authority to states to license and regulate by-products (radioisotopes); raw materials (uranium and thorium); and certain quantities of special nuclear materials. NRC`s delimitation mechanism with a state is an agreement signed by the Governor of the State and the Chairman of the Commission in accordance with Section 274b of the Act. In the particular situation of work in state-controlled sites in the contracting states, it is necessary to know the country of the country in order to determine whether the nrc or the contracting state has regulatory power. The NRC has regulatory power for states known as “exclusive federal jurisdiction,” while the contracting state has jurisdiction over non-exclusive states. It is the responsibility of licensees to know in advance the competence status of the specific areas in which they wish to carry out licensed transactions.
NRC recommends that licensees use their local interlocutors with the Federal Site Control Authority to determine the status of the country and provide written information so that licensees can, if necessary, meet the regulatory requirements of the NRC or the contracting state. Under the general licence, reciprocity activities are only permitted as long as the licensee has a valid licence for radioactive materials. If this licence expires later in the year, a renewal letter or a renewed licence issued by the regulator must be submitted to the DEP before carrying out additional work in the context of reciprocity. As a contracting state of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) (a state with which NRC entered into an effective agreement under Section 274b of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954), DEP, Bureau of Radiation Protection, requires the registration of certain licensed equipment under the title 10 U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 31.5). Many specialized inspection teams, with many disciplines, regularly conduct inspections at various accreditation sites, including USDA sites. NRC assistance to states that enter into agreements includes review of requests for 274b state agreements or amendments to 274b agreements, meetings with states for review and settlement of NRC review requests, and recommendations for Commission approval of proposed 274b agreements. In addition, NRC organizes training and workshops; Assesses technical issues relating to the licensing and inspection of States Parties; Assess changes to the state rule Participate in the activities of the Radiation Control Program Directors` Conference, Inc.; and offers rapid and substantial state participation in regulatory and other efforts.
