NRC Extends Comment Period for Advanced NOPR on Radiation Protection

The NRC has extended the comment period for an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking seeking comment on a NRC’s proposal to change current radiation protection regulations.  The proposed changes would more closely align NRC regulations with recommendations from the International Commission on Radiological Protection.  The NRC published the advanced NOPR in July, with the comment period originally scheduled to close on November 24, 2014.  Comments are now due by March 24, 2015.
