Title: Clarification on 10 CFR 19.11a, "Posting of Notices

to Workers"

See the memorandum from J. Buchanan to J. Wigginton dated

April 9, 1990. The requirement in 10 CFR 19.11 (a) for

posting civil penalties, orders, and responses from

licensees applies only to those proposed civil penalties,

orders, and responses that are relevant to radiological

working conditions. HPPOS-157 contains a related topic.

10 CFR 19.11 (a) states that, "Each licensee shall post

current copies of the following documents: (1) the

regulations in this part and in Part 20 of this chapter;

(2) the license, license conditions, or documents

incorporated into a license by reference, and amendments

thereto; (3) the operation procedures applicable to

licensed activities; (4) any notice of violation involving

radiological working conditions, proposed imposition of

civil penalty, or order issued pursuant to Subpart B of

Part 2 of this chapter, and any response from the licensee."

A question was asked whether the requirement for posting

proposed civil penalties, orders, and responses from

licensees applies only to those proposed civil penalties,

orders, and responses relevant to radiological working

conditions. The answer is given in the statement of

considerations for 10 CFR Part 19 (38 FR 22217, August 17,

1973), as follows: "It has been clarified that the

requirement in Section 19.11 for posting notices of

violations, notices of proposed imposition of civil

penalty, or orders issued pursuant to Subpart B of Part 2

of this chapter, applies only to documents relevant to

radiological working conditions."
