 In addition to the incorporation by reference of 10 CFR 33.11 (relating to types of specific licenses of broad scope), the following requirements for licensees using NARM also apply:

   (1)  A Type A specific license of broad scope is a specific license authorizing receipt, acquisition, ownership, possession, use and transfer of a chemical or physical form of radioactive material specified in the license, but not exceeding quantities specified in the license, for purposes authorized by the act. The quantities specified exceed those specified in Column I, Table 3 and are usually in the multicurie range.

   (2)  A Type B specific license of broad scope is a specific license authorizing receipt, acquisition, ownership, possession, use and transfer of a chemical or physical form of radioactive material specified in Table 3, for an authorized purpose. The possession limit for a Type B broad license, if only one radionuclide is possessed thereunder, is the quantity specified for that radionuclide in Column I, Table 3. If two or more radionuclides are possessed thereunder, the possession limit for each is determined as follows: for each radionuclide, determine the ratio of the quantity possessed to the applicable quantity specified in Column I, Table 3, for that radionuclide; the sum of the ratios for radionuclides possessed under the license may not exceed unity.

   (3)  A Type C specific license of broad scope is a specific license authorizing receipt, acquisition, ownership, possession, use and transfer of a chemical or physical form of radioactive material specified in Table 3, for an authorized purpose. The possession limit for a Type C broad license, if only one radionuclide is possessed thereunder, is the quantity specified for that radionuclide in Column II, Table 3. If two or more radionuclides are possessed thereunder, the possession limit is determined for each as follows: for each radionuclide determine the ratio of the quantity possessed to the applicable quantity specified in Column II, Table 3, for that radionuclide; the sum of the ratios for radionuclides possessed under the license may not exceed unity.
