United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Protecting People and the Environment

Health Physics Questions and Answers - Question 421

Question 421: This question refers to the answer to Question 37 in "Conforming Changes: 10 CFR Part 19." I sincerely hope that the NRC will encourage licensees to simply file a memo to the effect that these reports were done. Otherwise, the volume of paper will be ridiculous.

Answer: A filed memorandum to the effect that each worker has been advised of his or her dose in accordance with 10 CFR 19.13 (a) is an acceptable way of documenting compliance with that requirement. Another acceptable way of documenting compliance is to file copies of the reports provided to employees as indicated in the answer to Question 37).

(Reference: 10 CFR 19.13)
