Notifications and Reports to Individuals

HPPOS-215 PDR-9111220012

See the memorandum from J. D. Buchanan to J. E. Wigginton dated June 21, 1988.

Worker requests for occupational exposure reports from licensees need not be in writing. Region III requested NRR guidance concerning a difference of opinion between a worker and the worker's former employer on whether a request pursuant to 10 CFR 19.13 (c) must be written. 10 CFR 19.13 subsections (b), (c), and (e) all require a licensee to respond to certain requests from a worker. However, 10 CFR 19.13 does not specify that these requests be in writing, and therefore, it is apparently not required.

Regulatory references: 10 CFR 19.13

Subject codes: 2.2, 2.3

Applicability: All
