The United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has produced a series of technical reports (NUREG-1556 series, "Consolidated Guidance About Materials Licenses") providing program-specific guidance. These reports (the series contains 20 volumes) are intended to facilitate the processes of license application, NRC review of applications, renewal of licenses, and NRC inspection of licenses. This series of reports also provides a comprehensive source of reference information about materials regulation for those involved in various aspects of licensed materials use. NRC expects that persons preparing applications for materials licensure will reference appropriate volumes of this series, to facilitate the licensing process.
NUREG-1556, Vol. 1 was the first program-specific guidance developed, and it served as a template for subsequent program-specific guidance. This is the first planned revision to NUREG-1556, Vol. 1, "Program-Specific Guidance About Portable Gauge Licenses" dated May 1997. This document is intended for use by applicants, licensees, and NRC staff, and will also be available to Agreement States. This final report, as did the previous version, takes a more risk-informed, performance-based approach to licensing portable gauges, and reduces the information (amount and level of detail) needed to support an application to use these devices. This final report should be used in preparing portable gauge license applications. NRC staff will use this final report in reviewing these applications.
