SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On July 14, 2009 (74 FR 33901), the NRC published in the Federal Register a direct final rule amending its regulations in 10 CFR part 35 to clarify that individuals who do not need to comply with the training and experience requirements as described in the applicable regulations for the medical use of byproduct material (i.e., are “grandfathered”) may serve as preceptors and work experience supervisors for individuals seeking recognition on NRC licenses for the same medical uses of byproduct material. In the direct final rule, NRC stated that if no significant adverse comments were received, the direct final rule would become final on September 28, 2009. The NRC did not receive any comments that warranted withdrawal of the direct final rule. Therefore, this rule will become effective as scheduled.
