HPPOS-228 PDR-9111220082

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."
