Exemption of minor quantities or radioactive materials and some machines and devices emitting ionizing radiations from the requirements of registration and/or licensing in Israel

Conference:

Abstract

The use of radioactive materials and of machines or devices emitting ionizing radiations in Israel is subject to requirements of licensing or registration. These requirements are specified in several regulations related to radiation protection and to the use of radioactive materials. Based on the exemption principles formulated by the IAEA a few years ago (IAEA Safety Series 89), a group of radiation protection experts at the Soreq NRC submitted in 1992 a draft regulation proposal related to the exemption of certain radiation sources and practices from these regulations. This draft was reviewed and ratified by the licensing division of the Israel AEC and is now in the process of rewriting and being formulized by the legal staff of the Ministry of the Environment responsible for the enforcement of the above mentioned regulations. Among the radiation sources and devices recommended for complete or partial exemptions are: Naturally radioactive ores; machines and devices emitting very low energy X-rays (<5 keV); certain consumer products (such as radioactive smoke detectors and gaseous tritium light devices); television sets and VDU`s; certain industrial nuclear gauges; low activity sealed radioactive test sources of portable radiation survey meters; radioimmunoassay kits with limited activity; and depleted uranium blocks used  More>>
