On March 30, 2005 (70 FR 16361), NRC published a final rule amending its regulations in part 35 regarding the medical use of byproduct material. In Section 35.50, “Training for Radiation Safety Officer,” the reference to paragraph (c)(2) in paragraph (d) was inadvertently omitted.
Section 35.50 specifies that an individual fulfilling the responsibilities of Radiation Safety Officer must be:
(a) An individual who is certified by a specialty board recognized under this section,
(b) An individual who has completed a structured educational program,
(c)(1) A medical physicist who has been certified by a specialty board recognized under § 35.51(a) and who has experience in radiation safety, or
(c)(2) An authorized user (AU), authorized medical physicist (AMP), or authorized nuclear pharmacist (ANP) who has experience in radiation safety.
Currently, § 35.50(d) requires an individual seeking radiation safety officer status to obtain written attestation that the individual has satisfactorily completed the requirements in paragraphs (a), (b), or (c)(1) of this section. However, reference to paragraph (c)(2) was inadvertently omitted. This rule inserts the reference to paragraph (c)(2) in paragraph (d).Start List of Subjects
