Abstract

As part of its redesign of the materials licensing process, the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (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," dated April 1996, and draft NUREG-1541, "Process and Design for Consolidating and Updating Materials Licensing Guidance," dated April 1996. NUREG-1556, Vol. 7, "Consolidated Guidance about Materials Licenses: Program-Specific Guidance About Academic, Research and Development, and Other Licenses of Limited Scope," dated December 1999, is the seventh program-specific guidance developed for the new process and is intended for use by applicants, licensees, and NRC staff and will also be available to Agreement States. This document combines and updates the guidance for applicants and licensees previously found in (1) Regulatory Guide 10.2, Revision 1, "Guidance to Academic Institutions Applying for Specific Byproduct Material Licenses of Limited Scope," dated December 1976; (2) Regulatory Guide 10.7, "Guide for the preparation of Applications for Licenses for Laboratory and Industrial Use of Small Quantities of Byproduct Material," dated August 1979; and (3) Draft Regulatory Guide FC 405-4, "Guide for the Preparation of Applications for Licenses for the Use of Sealed Sources in Gas Chromatography Devices and X-Ray Fluorescence Analyzers," dated February 1985. This report takes a more risk-informed, performance-based approach to the information needed to support an application for the use of byproduct material. When published this final report should be used in preparing academic, research and development, and other licenses of limited scope (ARDL) license applications. NRC staff will use this final report in reviewing these applications.
