contractors are currently bound by comparable contractual obligations. 
Full compliance by contractors with nuclear safety standards will 
result in substantial societal benefits.


Risks:





The rulemaking should reduce the risk of nuclear safety problems by 
clarifying safety requirements applicable to DOE contractors and 
improving compliance.

32. RADIATION PROTECTION OF THE PUBLIC AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Legal Authority:


 42 USC 2201; 42 USC 7191


CFR Citation:


 10 CFR 834


Legal Deadline:


None


Abstract:





This action would add a new 10 CFR part 834 to DOE's regulations 
establishing a body of rules setting forth the basic requirements for 
ensuring radiation protection of the public and environment in 
connection with DOE nuclear activities. These requirements stem from 
the Department's ongoing effort to strengthen the protection of health, 
safety and the environment from the nuclear, radiological, and chemical 
hazards posed by these DOE activities. Major elements of the proposal 
included a dose limitation system for protection of the public; 
requirements for liquid discharges; reporting and monitoring 
requirements; and residual radioactive material requirements.


Statement of Need:





The purpose of this rule is to ensure that the Department's obligations 
to protect health and safety are fulfilled and to provide, if needed, a 
basis for the assessment of civil and criminal penalties consistent 
with the Price-Anderson Amendments Act of 1988.


Summary of the Legal Basis:





Under the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, the Department of 
Energy has the authority to regulate activities at facilities under its 
jurisdiction. The Department is committed to honoring its obligation to 
ensure the health and safety of the public and workers affected by its 
operations and the protection of the environs around its facilities.


Alternatives:





The Department could continue to impose radiation protection standards 
through administrative directives applicable to DOE contractors.


Anticipated Costs and Benefits:





The incremental costs of the proposed rules should be minimal because 
contractors are currently bound by comparable contractual obligations. 
Full compliance by contractors with nuclear safety standards will 
result in substantial societal benefits.


Risks:





This rulemaking should reduce the risk of nuclear safety problems by 
clarifying safety requirements applicable to DOE contractors and 
improving compliance.
