Public Notice
Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection is proposing amendments to N.J.A.C. 7:28-1.4, 2.1, 2.2, 3.2, 3.5, 3.8, 3.10, 3.13, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 4.7, 4.8, 4.9, 4.11, 4.12, 4.14, 4.15, 4.16, 4.18, 4.19, 6.2, 6.5, 6.6, 7.1, 9.4, 10.9, 11.2, 11.3, 11.7, 13.1 and 13.2. The proposed amendments to N.J.A.C. 7:28 will update the rules to reflect current scientific knowledge and standards and to address certain licensing issues. The amendments will modify definitions; licensing requirements for those involved with radioactive materials; radiation levels in and outside of controlled areas; labeling and posting quantities of radioactive material; provisions related to disposal of radioactive material; provisions related to theft or loss of radioactive material; and increase fees for radioactive materials licensees and registrants. The four major changes are 1) reduction in the allowed public dose limit from 500 millirem per year (mrem/y) to 100 mrem/y, 2) revision of discharge limits to the environment and sanitary sewers, 3) revision of licensing exemptions, specifically lowering the exemption limit for technologically enhanced naturally occurring radioactive materials (TENORM), and 4) an increase in fees charged to State licensees and Radioactive Materials Registrants.

The proposal is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register dated May 17, 2004. A copy of the proposal is available from: http://www.nj.gov/dep/rpp/download/redraftpv2.pdf (PDF Help), Richard Peros or Jennifer Goodman at (609) 984-5400, or Westlaw Publishing at 1-800-808-WEST.
