Possible future changes to national public and occupational radiation protection standards

State of California—Health and Human Services Agency California Department of Public Health


The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering revising some aspects of title 10, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 20 (10 CFR 20), including public and occupational radiation exposure limits. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has incorporated 10 CFR 20 into title 17, California Code of Regulations, section 30253, and applies those provisions to all RAM and X-ray machine users subject to CDPH jurisdiction. Therefore, any changes by NRC may impact California’s radiation users.

The NRC has published an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) to obtain input from stakeholders on the development of a draft regulatory basis to support potential changes to 10 CFR 20 to achieve greater alignment between the NRC’s radiation protection regulations and the 2007 recommendations of the International Commission on Radiation Protection (ICRP) contained in ICRP Publication 103. NRC currently proposes some differences from the ICRP recommendations, as noted in the NRC’s ANPR and summarized below (both ICRP and NRC positions are noted where differences exist).
