Summary - Part 20, Exceedance of Dose Constraints

On December 10, 1996, the Commission published a revision to the Enforcement Policy that reflected the Commission's final rule amending 10 CFR Part 20 to add § 20.1101(d), that establishes the requirements for reporting and taking corrective action. Supplement IV of the Policy was modified to add an example of a violation categorized at Severity Level IV involving the failure to report an exceedance of the dose constraint established in § 20.1101(d), or failure to take corrective action for an exceedance.
