Applying for a Uranium Recovery Radioactive Material License
To help with your application, see the guidance documents at The Nuclear Regulatory Commission website (NRC). Include in your application the review elements found in the NRC’s NUREG-1569, “Standard Review Plan for In Situ Leach Uranium Extraction License Applications.”
In your application, address all administrative, financial, and technical requirements of Texas Administrative Code. Create a table showing the requirements of the regulations and where they are addressed in the application and include that with your application. This will help speed the review process.
You may find it helpful to review some sample technical reports and previous license applications submitted to the TCEQ. Visit the TCEQ Main Offices in the Uranium Section file room on the first floor of Building F.
To apply for a license, please submit the General Application for a Radioactive Material License.
For payment of application fees, please use the Radioactive Material License Payment Submittal Form.
