The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has approved the final rule for 10 CFR 37, "Physical Protection of Byproduct
Material" and conforming changes to other parts of Title 10. This rule
has been sent to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for final review. Once
the OMB approves, it will be sent to the Federal Register.
The final rule amends the regulations to establish security requirements for the use of certain categories and quantities of radioactive byproduct material (categories 1 and 2) and for the transportation of small quantities of irradiated fuel.
