NRC Announces Discontinuation of Rulemaking Activity

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is discontinuing a rulemaking activity that would have required licensees to remediate residual radioactivity resulting from licensed activities during facility operations, rather than at license termination. The purpose of this action is to inform members of the public that this rulemaking activity is being discontinued and to provide a brief discussion of the NRC's decision to discontinue it. This rulemaking activity will no longer be reported in the NRC's portion of the Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions (the Unified Agenda). This action is effective 6 October 2017. Please refer to Docket ID NRC-2011-0162 when contacting the NRC about the availability of information regarding this action. You may obtain publicly available information related to this document:
