The Advisory Committee on the Medical Uses of Isotopes (ACMUI) provides a valuable service to the staff of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) through the advice and recommendations it gives staff.

To be able to advise staff effectively, it is important that the ACMUI have a basic understanding of its role and its responsibilities. Likewise, it is also important that the committee have a basic understanding of NRC processes and requirements. Such understanding creates an environment where the ACMUI can effectively advise the NRC staff. Effective advice, in turn, serves patients, the public, and the medical regulated community by helping the NRC staff develop regulations that promote safety and are useful, realistic, practical, and not overly burdensome on NRC medical licensees.
