NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Section 19-1-106 created the Radiation Control Board (Board) within the Department of Environmental Quality. Subsection 19-3-104(4) provides that the Board may make rules necessary for controlling exposure to sources of radiation that constitute a significant health hazard.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
This rule has not been controversial. There have been a few amendments since the date the rule was enacted and since the last five-year review. With respect to the last amendment, no comments were submitted. The Division of Radiation Control Director has recommended to the Board that this rule be continued.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
The Board has determined that there is a need to write rules to control the use of radiation sources that constitute a significant health hazard. This rule specifies the regulatory requirements for radiation originating from Therapeutic Radiation Machines, such as a linear accelerator. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
