Applying for an In Situ Uranium Recovery Facility Radioactive Material License
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has a web site where you can access a list of helpful guidance document. It is recommended that you include in your application the review elements contained in the NRC’s NUREG-1569, “Standard Review Plan for In Situ Leach Uranium Extraction License Applications.”
Your application must address all administrative, financial, and technical requirements of Texas Administrative Code . By including with your application a table that cross references the requirements of the regulations with where they are addressed in the application, you can help speed the review process.
It may also be helpful to visit the Uranium and Technical Assessments Section file room on the first floor, Building F, TCEQ Main Offices. There you can request to view final technical reports and previous license applications that we have found to be acceptable.
Other important documents that help ensure protection of site workers and the public include:
- NRC Regulatory Guide 4.14 , “Radiological Effluent and Environmental Monitoring at Uranium Mills.”
- NRC Regulatory Guide 8.31 , “Information Relevant to Ensuring that Occupational Radiation Exposures at Uranium Mills Will Be As Low As Reasonably Achievable.”
