HPS Responds to EPA on Nuclear Power Operations Standards

Health Physics Society President Barbara Hamrick has provided comments to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in response to its Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) (40 CFR 190) Environmental Radiation Protection Standards for Nuclear Power Operations.

The EPA has posted a fact sheet (EPA 402-F-12-001) that explains the purpose of the ANPR and the rulemaking process.

The EPA will provide email updates regarding this issue when new information is available for all who register their email address on the Environmental Standards for Uranium Fuel Cycle Facilities (40 CRF 190) page of the EPA website.
