Availability Notice


As part of its redesign of the materials licensing process, NRC is consolidating and updating numerous guidance documents into a single comprehensive repository as described in NUREG-1539, "Methodology and Findings of the NRC's Materials Licensing Process Redesign," dated April 1996, and draft NUREG-1541, "Process and Design for Consolidating and Updating Materials Licensing Guidance," dated April 1996. NUREG-1556, Vol. 6, "Consolidated Guidance about Materials Licenses: Program-Specific Guidance about 10 ;CFR ;Part 36 Irradiator Licenses," dated January 1999, is the sixth program-specific guidance developed for the new process and is intended for use by applicants, licensees, and NRC staff and will also be available to Agreement States. This document updates the guidance found in NMSS Policy and Guidance Directive, FC 84-23, "Standard Review Plan for Licenses for the Use of Panoramic Dry Source-Storage Irradiators, Self-Contained Wet Source-Storage, and Panoramic Wet Source-Storage Irradiators," dated December 27, 1984. This report, where applicable, provides a more risk-informed, performance-based approach to licensing 10 CFR Part 36 irradiators consistent with the current regulations. "This final report should be used in preparing Part 36 Irradiator License Applications. NRC staff will use this final report in reviewing these applications."
