NRC Items of Interest

Contact the Bureau of Radiation Control

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) periodically posts documents on their web site that are important or of interest to Florida radioactive material licensees or the public. The NRC also occasionally asks the Bureau of Radiation Control to pass along certain information to our stakeholders, so this page was created to help share all these items. It is not intended to be all inclusive so if you need more details about a particular topic not given here, please visit NRC's web site at

In addition, most of the documents below are letters from NRC's Office of Federal & State Materials & Environmental Management (FSME) Programs. These and other FSME letters can be found on this NRC web site:
