U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission

Question 78: Under §20.1703 (d), licensees must notify the

NRC Regional Director at least 30 days prior to first using

respiratory protection equipment pursuant to §20.1703 (a)

or (b). All current respiratory protection programs have

been documented under the provisions of §20.103 (g) which

contains equivalent language. Do licensees need to

"re-notify" NRC if such notification has already taken

place under the "old" Part 20?

Answer: Licensees do not need to "re-notify" NRC if such

notification has taken place under the old Part 20.

(Reference: 10 CFR 20.1703 (d)).
