SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The purpose of these meetings is to obtain stakeholder comments on the National Source Tracking Proposed Rule. The proposed rule would require licensees to report certain transactions involving certain sealed sources of concern to the National Source Tracking System. These transactions would include manufacture, transfer, receipt, or disposal of the nationally tracked source. The proposed rule would also require each licensee to provide its initial inventory of nationally tracked sources to the National Source Tracking System and annually verify and reconcile the information in the system with the licensee's actual inventory. In addition, the proposed rule would require manufacturers to assign a unique serial number to each nationally tracked source. The proposed rule is available on NRC's rulemaking Web site: http://ruleforum.llnl.gov.

Agenda: Welcome—10 minutes; NRC staff presentation on Rule Requirements—20 minutes; Public Comment—remainder. There will also be a poster board session on the transaction forms. To ensure that everyone who wishes has the chance to comment, we may impose a time limit on speakers.

Attendees are requested to notify Julie Ward, telephone (301) 415-5061, e-mail jaw2@nrc.gov or Ikeda King, telephone (301) 415-7278, e-mail ijk@nrc.gov to preregister for the meetings. You will be able to register at the meetings, as well.
