Abstract:

This is a new regulation. This regulation prescribes Army radiation safety policy. It is a consolidation of several regulations that partially covered this policy. It implements DODI 6055.8 and DODI 6055.11. It includes Army policy for the use, licensing, disposal, transportation, dosimetry, accident reporting, safety design, and inventory control of and radiation exposure standards for ionizing and nonionizing radiation sources. This regulation updates policy to be consistent with current Federal radiation safety regulations simplifies Army radiation authorization, Army radiation permit, and Nuclear Regulatory Commission license application procedures requires Army radiation authorizations for the use of machine-produced ionizing radiation and strengthens MACOM and installation radiation safety authority.
