25 Pa. Code § 217.203. Reciprocity of licenses for byproduct, source, naturally occurring and accelerator-produced radioactive material and special nuclear material in quantities not sufficient to form a critical mass.

§ 217.203. Reciprocity of licenses for byproduct, source, naturally occurring and accelerator-produced radioactive material and special nuclear material in quantities not sufficient to form a critical mass.

 (a)  Subject to this article, a person who holds a specific license from the NRC or a state where the licensee maintains an office, issued by the agency having jurisdiction to direct the licensed activity and to maintain radiation safety records, is granted a general license to conduct the activities authorized in the licensing document within this Commonwealth, except for areas of exclusive Federal jurisdiction, for a period not in excess of 180 days in a calendar year if:

   (1)  The licensing document does not limit the activity authorized by the document to specified installation or locations.

   (2)  The out-of-State licensee notifies the Department in writing at least 3 days prior to engaging in the activity. The notification shall indicate the location, period and type of proposed possession and use within this Commonwealth, and shall be accompanied by a copy of the pertinent licensing document. If for a specific case the 3-day period would impose an undue hardship on the out-of-State licensee, the licensee may, upon application to the Department, obtain permission to proceed sooner. The Department may waive the requirement for filing additional written notifications during the remainder of the calendar year following the receipt of the initial notification from a person engaging in activities under the general license provided in this subsection.

   (3)  The out-of-State licensee complies with this title and with the terms and conditions of the licensee’s document, except terms and conditions which may be inconsistent with this title.

   (4)  The out-of-State licensee supplies other information as the Department may request.

   (5)  The out-of-State licensee does not transfer or dispose of radioactive material possessed or used under the general license provided in this subsection except by transfer to a person who is one of the following:

     (i)   Specifically licensed by the Department, the NRC or by another state to receive the material.

     (ii)   Exempt from the requirements for a license for the material under Subchapter B (relating to general provisions for radioactive material).

 (b)  Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a), a person who holds a specific license issued by the NRC or a state authorizing the holder to manufacture, transfer, install or service a device described in Subchapter C (relating to general licenses for radioactive material) within areas subject to the jurisdiction of the licensing body is granted a general license to install, transfer, demonstrate or service the device in this Commonwealth subject to the following conditions:

   (1)  The person files a report with the Department within 30 days after the end of a calendar quarter in which a device is transferred to or installed in this Commonwealth. The report shall identify the general licensee to whom the device is transferred by name and address, the type of device transferred and the quantity and type of radioactive material contained in the device.

   (2)  The device has been manufactured, labeled, installed and serviced in accordance with the specific license issued to the person by the NRC or a state.

   (3)  The person assures that labels required to be affixed to the device, under regulations of the authority which licensed manufacture of the device, bear a statement that ‘‘Removal of this label is prohibited.’’

   (4)  The holder of the specific license or his intermediary shall provide a copy of the conditions of general license contained in Subchapter C to the general licensee upon transfer of the radioactive material or installation of a device containing the radioactive material.

 (c)  The Department may withdraw, limit or qualify its acceptance of a specific license or equivalent licensing document issued by another agency, or product distributed under the licensing document, upon determining that the action is necessary to prevent undue hazard to public health and safety or property.

 (d)  When a person is granted a general license under subsection (a) and subsequently exceeds the prescribed 180-day period, the person shall file a license application with the Department under Subchapter B within 30 days after the end of the 180-day period.

 (e)  Implementation of the requirements of this section regarding byproduct, source and special nuclear material is subject to §  217.133 (relating to persons possessing a license for source, byproduct or special nuclear material in quantities not sufficient to form a critical mass on the date the Commonwealth becomes an agreement state as published in the Federal Register).
