The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing interim staff guidance for implementation of the final rule, Distribution of Source Material to Exempt Persons and to General Licensees and Revision of General License and Exemptions (Distribution of Source Material Rule). The Distribution of Source Material Rule amended the NRC's regulations to require that the initial distribution of source material to exempt persons or to general licensees be explicitly authorized by a specific license. The Distribution of Source Material Rule also modified the existing possession and use requirements of the general license for small quantities of source material and revised, clarified, or deleted certain source material exemptions from licensing.
