Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 41185
Filed: 01/17/2017 10:30:43 AM

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:

During the period from the previous five-year review, two modifications to the rule were made. Comments received for each modification were related to the modification only, and no comments were received either expressing support or opposition to the rule during the comment periods on the modifications or at any other time during the period from the previous five-year review.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The Waste Management and Radiation Control Board has determined that there is a need for rules to control the use of radiation sources that constitute a significant health hazard. This rule specifies the regulatory requirements for radiation sources used in Well Logging operations. Therefore, this rule should be continued. As an Agreement State, this rule is needed to maintain regulatory compatibility with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).
