U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission
Question 439: If the employer has been informed, in
writing, by a female worker that she is pregnant, and the
employer is not the licensee (e.g., the employer is a
contractor to the licensee), may the employer notify the
licensee of the declaration of pregnancy to establish
applicability of §20.1208, Dose to an Embryo / Fetus, or must
the woman herself make the declaration to the licensee?
Answer: The employer may notify the licensee that the
woman has declared her pregnancy in accordance with the
definition of a "declared pregnant woman" in 10 CFR
20.1003. However, there is no NRC requirement to do so.
(References: 10 CFR 20.1208, 10 CFR 20.1003).
