ASTSWMO letter to U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission in response to the Commission’s denial of ASTSWMO’s 2009 petition for rulemaking on tritium exit signs


Thank you for your response dated December 2, 2011, to the petition for rulemaking (PRM) submitted to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) in December 2009 by the Association of State and Territorial Solid Waste Management Officials (ASTSWMO). We are pleased that the NRC is in agreement with ASTSWMO that general licensee accountability may be strengthened by enhancing regulatory guidance and improving communication between the NRC (and Agreement States) and manufacturers. We look forward to contributing to the enhancement of current guidance by participating in the revision of NUREG 1556.
