Vol. 26 Iss. 1 - September 14, 2009



Initial Agency Notice

Title of Regulation: 12VAC5-490. Radiation Protection Regulations: Fee Schedule.

Statutory Authority: ยง 32.1-229 of the Code of Virginia.

Name of Petitioner: Harvey V. Lankford, M.D.

Nature of Petitioner's Request: Request for Reducing Radiological Materials Licensing Fee. The petitioner requests that the recently adopted radiological materials fee schedules be reexamined and revised so as not to exceed comparable federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) fees, that they be consistent with what the petitioner believes the board represented in regulatory promulgation documents (culminating in the March 2009 final regulations) to the effect that licensees' fees would be "significantly reduced in most cases" and would therefore be less than those imposed by the NRC.

Agency's Plan for Disposition of the Request: The agency will review all comments received in response to publication of this petition and will look closely at the possibility of revising the fee schedules affecting radiological materials licensees.

Public comments may be submitted until October 5, 2009.
