This document, NUREG-1736, "Consolidated Guidance: 10 CFR Part 20 - Standards for Protection Against Radiation," consolidates guidance into a single comprehensive source by reference to numerous guidance documents. It complements the NUREG-1556 series, "Consolidated Guidance about Materials Licenses." Since Part 20 applies to all NRC licensees, in varying degrees, it extends beyond the materials scope of NUREG-1556. Each section in this document provides the following:
A statement of the requirement (reflecting revisions published in the Federal Register through October 13, 1999);
A discussion of the requirement;
A statement of the requirement's applicability;
A guidance statement;
A list of existing regulatory guidance (Regulatory Guides, NUREG reports);
- A list of existing implementation guidance (Information Notices, health physics positions, Part 20 questions and answers, etc.).
NUREG-1736, "Consolidated Guidance: 10 CFR Part 20 - Standards for Protection Against Radiation," also identifies prior guidance that is now outdated and in some cases subject to withdrawal or revision.
