Products containing naturally occurring and accelerator-produced radioactive materials (NARM) (other than uranium, thorium, and tailings produced in their extraction) are not subject to regulation by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, nor are they comprehensively controlled by any other Federal agency. In the interest of uniform control for radioactive materials, the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors, Inc., established a Task Force to develop guidance for the individual State's evaluation of NARM products. The Task Force consisted of representatives from State Radiation Control Programs; the Bureau of Radiological Health, FDA; the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission; and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Bureau of Radiological Health funded the Task Force activities and provided the secretariat for the project. These guides are intended to assist those persons or agencies interested in the uniform requirements governing the manufacture, assembly, and distribution of radioactive products.
