AGENCY:

Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION:

Withdrawal of petition for rulemaking.

SUMMARY:

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is notifying the public of the withdrawal of a petition for rulemaking (PRM-35-13) submitted by the National Registry of Radiation Protection Technologists (NRRPT). The petitioner requested that the NRC amend its regulations to accept NRRPT registration in lieu of the requirement for 200 hours of classroom training specified in 10 CFR 35.900(b)(1), and to accept the NRRPT registration as a substitute for 9 of the 12 months experience required in 10 CFR 35.900(b)(2) as a radiation safety technologist at a medical institution under the supervision of the Radiation Safety Officer (RSO). Since the receipt of the petition, the NRC has revised 10 CFR part 35, essentially in its entirety. The final rule was published in the Federal Register on April 24, 2002 (67 FR 20251-20397). On August 7, 2002, the petitioner formally withdrew its petition.
