In January 2014, the Radiation Program put forth proposed changes to Part 3 "Licensing of Radioactive Material" for public comment. Following the public comment period, the proposed changes were reviewed by the Colorado Board of Health in February and again on April 16, 2014 where the board approved the proposed changes. The changes were needed to ensure compatibility with federal rules of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and to meet programmatic needs.
