Forms

There is no license application for a general license. A general license is a de facto license based on the possession of generally licensed devices. Forms that are useful for meeting reporting requirements or are required for registration include:

  • NRC Form 664 PDF Icon Registration of Generally Licensed Devices
  • NRC Form 483 PDF Icon Registration Certificate -- in Vitro Testing with Byproduct Material under General License
  • NRC Form 653 PDF Icon Transfers of Industrial Devices Report (Used by vendors of GL devices to report distributions to 31.5 general licensees. Provides information to general licensees on what needs to be in the report.)
