Radiac Research Corporation, Brooklyn, New York; Receipt of 
Request for Action Under 10 CFR 2.206

    Notice is hereby given that by petition dated November 3, 2003, Mr. 
Michael B. Gerrard, representing Neighbors Against Garbage, et al. 
(petitioners), have requested that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
(NRC) take action with regard to Radiac Research Corporation Brooklyn, 
New York, a licensee with the New York State Department of Labor. By 
letter dated December 17, 2003, NRC staff informed Mr. Gerrard that his 
letter dated November 4, 2003, submitted on behalf of Neighbors Against 
Garbage, was being considered under 10 CFR Part 2.206 and that his 
request for emergency action had been denied.
    The petitioners requested that the NRC use its authority to protect 
the common defense and security under the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 to 
close the Radiac facility. As the basis for the request, the petitioner 
stated that the radioactive waste storage operation adjoining a 
hazardous waste transfer and storage operation at the Radiac Research 
Corporation in Brooklyn, New York represented a significant risk.
    The request meets the criteria for evaluation pursuant to 10 CFR 
2.206 of the Commission's regulations and will be reviewed accordingly. 
The request has been referred to the Director of the Office of Nuclear 
Material Safety and Safeguards. As provided by Section 2.206, 
appropriate action will be taken on this petition within a reasonable 
time. A copy of the petition is available for inspection in the 
Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS), which 
provides text and image files of NRC's public documents. These 
documents may be accessed through the NRC's Public Electronic Reading 
Room on the Internet at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. If

(PDR) Reference staff at 1-800-397-4209, 301-415-4737 or by email to

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 27th day of April, 2004.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
