Abstract or Summary
  • At the time of this study 19 states have entered into agreements, one state agreement is pending and one state has submitted its proposal for entering into an agreement with the Atomic Energy Commission for the purpose of assuming regulatory authority over (1) byproduct, (2) source and (3) special nuclear materials in quantities not sufficient to form a critical mass. As there is a tendency for states and state agencies to become individualistic, it is reasonable to assume that differences between the state regulatory agency regulations and the AEC regulations would have occurred despite the clause in the AEC-State agreement that requires the amendment of the state regulations to maintain compatibility with the similar AEC regulations. It is reasonable that interstate differences have also occurred. This study compared the AEC regulations with agreement state regulations. The differences between agreement state regulations are also noted. This study found that the state regulations for the control of radioactive materials have been derived from and are compatible with the AEC regulations and that a high degree of uniformity has been maintained. The differences that have occurred are minor and are mainly the result of the time lag between the amending of the AEC regulations and the subsequent amendments of the state regulations. All agreement states have assumed authority over (1) naturally occurring and accelerator produced isotopes and (2) radiation producing machines, which have been excluded by Congress from the AEC regulatory authority. Several states have licensing fees and some have generally licensed radioisotope-containing pharmaceuticals for specific clinical applications.
