Wyoming: Agreement State Information

Wyoming is an Agreement State. No operating nuclear reactors or fuel cycle facilities other than mills are located in Wyoming. Wyoming has jurisdiction over x-ray equipment, naturally occurring radioactive materials, and certain radioactive materials that are not produced in a reactor.

On February 27, 2015, the Governor of Wyoming submitted a letter of intent to the NRC Chairman to pursue an agreement with the NRC. On September 25, 2018, the agreement was signed, and the state assumed regulatory authority on September 30 over the regulation of uranium and thorium milling facilities and 11e.(2) byproduct material from the NRC in 2018.

On February 21, 2023, the Governor of Wyoming submitted a letter of intent to the NRC Chairman to pursue an amendment to the agreement with the NRC. Wyoming's request for an amendment to their Agreement would allow the State to assume regulatory authority for source material recovered from any mineral resources processed primarily for purposes other than its uranium or thorium content. Once the Agreement process is completed, the NRC will transfer the licenses that authorize the possession of source material recovered from mineral resource processing (e.g., rare earth extraction) to the State of Wyoming. See Wyoming Agreement - Amendment Process for details about the amendment process.

The NRC's Regional Office in Arlington, Texas, (Region IV) is responsible for carrying out the Agency's duties in Wyoming.
