Radiation Doses


     WASHINGTON (CN) – “Doh!” To relieve the paperwork burden on licensed nuclear plants, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is reducing what must be reported.



A new regulation allows facilities to only provide employees with an annual report of the amount of radiation to which he or she has been exposed if it exceeds a certain level, or if the employee requests the report. The regulation also changes certain container labeling requirements, amends a definition, and removes the requirement that plants try to obtain cumulative exposure records for workers unless the workers are being authorized to receive a planned “special exposure” of radiation. Click here for details and other new regulations.
