Announcement of public workshop.


The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will be conducting several workshops to inform external stakeholders of the changes made to 10 CFR part 35, Medical Use of Byproduct Material. The purpose of these workshops is to provide stakeholders with the necessary information to promote a successful transition into the revised rule. The revised Part 35 is a risk-informed, and performance-based regulation that focuses on those medical procedures that pose the highest radiological risk to workers, patients, and the public. The revised Part 35 was published in the Federal Register on April 24, 2002 (67 FR 20249), and will become effective on October 24, 2002.


The workshops will be held on September 10, 2002, September 24, 2002, September 28, 2002, October 9, 2002, and October 16, 2002. All workshops will be conducted between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., eastern standard time.
