NARM Toolbox: Agreement States That Have Provided Governor Certifications
The NRC received certifications from 35 Agreement State governors which document that their State has a program for licensing byproduct material, as defined in paragraph (3) or (4) of Section 11e. of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, (AEA) which is adequate to protect public health and safety, and that the State intends to continue to implement their authority with respect to the new byproduct material.
The certifications from the following 35 States are available for review in ADAMS:
- New Hampshire
- New Mexico
- New York
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
Effective on November 30, 2007, the waivers, as authorized to the Commission by 651(e) of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, for all 34 Agreement States were terminated. The Agreements entered into between the Commission and each of these States under Section 274b. of the AEA, are now considered to also include the byproduct materials in Sections11e.(3) and (4).
