Availability Notice


This technical report contains information intended to provide program-specific guidance and assist applicants and licensees in preparing applications for materials licenses. In particular, it describes the types of information needed to complete U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Form 313, "Application for Materials License." This document describes both the methods acceptable to the NRC license reviewers in implementing the regulations and the techniques used by the reviewers in evaluating the application to determine if the proposed activities are acceptable for licensing purposes.

In addition to providing guidance on the distribution of generally licensed (GL) products containing byproduct material regulated under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 31, "General Domestic Licenses for Byproduct Material," and 10 CFR Part 32, "Specific Domestic Licenses to Manufacture or Transfer Certain Items Containing Byproduct Material," the agency has revised this document to include guidance on the distribution of GL source material amended under 10 CFR Part 40, "Domestic Licensing of Source Material," and of GL special nuclear materials regulated under 10 CFR Part 70, "Domestic Licensing of Special Nuclear Material."
