|Information for Licensees/Applicants About the Increased Controls requirements|
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and North Carolina have implemented increased controls for licensees that possess certain radioactive materials in quantities of concern. The NRC has determined that these additional requirements are necessary to supplement existing regulatory requirements in 10 CFR § 20.1801 - .1802 (rules similar to North Carolina's 15A NCAC 11 .1622).
Prior to submitting license application packages for either NEW LICENSES or RENEWAL OF EXISTING LICENSES, licensees should evaluate their requested types and quantities of radioactive material for possible qualification as quantities of concern under the Increased Security Requirements.
The Agency has developed an "IC TOOLBOX" that contains information on the Increased Security Requirements for qualifying licensees.
By the nature of the Increased Security program and associated control enhancements required by all stakeholders, this application process will typically entail an extended completion timeline. Accordingly, license applicants should time their actions to allow for the possibility of this extended completion timeline.
