Products containing naturally occurring and accelerator-produced radioactive material, other than uranium and thorium, 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 BRH, the USNRC and the USEPA. The Bureau of Radiological Health funded the Task Force activities and provided the secretariat for the project. The NARM Guides set forth the relevant criteria for the evaluation of sources and products containing radioactive material. These Guides are intended to assist those persons or agencies interested in the uniform requirements governing the manufacture, assembly, and distribution of radioactive products.
