Availability Notice


As part of its redesign of the materials licensing process, NRC is consolidating and updating numerous guidance documents into a single comprehensive repository as described in NUREG-1539, "Methodology and Findings of the NRC's Materials Licensing Process Redesign" and NUREG-1541, "Process and Design for Consolidating and Updating Materials Licensing Guidance" (to obtain, see Availability Notice). NUREG-1556, Vol. 2 is the second program-specific guidance developed for the new process. This document is intended for use by applicants, licensees, and NRC staff and will also be available to Agreement States. This guidance corresponds with the revision to 10 CFR Part 34 published in May 1997. This document combines and supersedes the guidance previously found in draft Regulatory Guide FC 401-4, "Guide for the Preparation of Applications for the Use of Sealed Sources and Devices for Performing Industrial Radiography," and in NMSS Policy and Guidance Directive FC 84-15, "Standard Review Plan for Applications for the Use of Sealed Sources and Devices for Performing Industrial Radiography." This report, where applicable, provides a more risk-informed, performance-based approach to industrial radiography licensing consistent with the current regulations. This final report should be used in preparing requests for licensing actions. NRC staff will use this final report in its review of requests for licensing actions.
