Petition Title Request for Reducing Radiological Materials License Fee
Date Filed 8/17/2009   
Petitioner Harvey V. Lankford, MD 
Petitioner's Request

That the recently-adopted radiological materials fee schedules be re-examined and revised so as not to exceed comparable federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) fees, that they be consistent with what the petitioner believes the Board represented in regulatory promulgation documents (culminating in the March 2009 final regulations) to the effect that licensees' fees would be "significantly reduced in most cases" and would therefore be less than those imposed by the NRC. 

Agency's Plan

The agency will review all comments received in response to publication of this petition and will look closely at the possibility of revising the fee schedules affecting radiological materials licensees.

Comment Period Began 9/14/2009    Ended 10/5/2009
