No Revisions to Radiation Regulations

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is no longer pursuing the revisions to regulations in 10 CFR part 20 and 10 CFR part 50, appendix I, concluding that the additional resource expenditure in this area did not justify a recommendation for a revised rule. The commission ruled that the current NRC regulatory framework continues to provide adequate protection of the health and safety of workers, the public, and the environment. More information can be found in the Federal Register, Volume 81 Issue 249 (Wednesday, 28 December 2016) pages 95410–95412.
