Part 17 - Transportation of Radioactive Material

The radiation program is proposing changes to the Colorado Rules and Regulations Pertaining to Radiation Control, 6 CCR 1007-1, Part 17 - Transportation of Radioactive Material. 


The proposed changes are equivalent to and necessary for compatibility with the federal rules of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) in 10 CFR Part 71.


Stakeholders were notified, and Part 17 was posted for a public comment period in March-April 2014. No comments were received during the comment period.


A request for rulemaking for Part 17 was held on April 16, 2014 before the Colorado Board of Health (the board). The board approved the request for rulemaking, and a final rulemaking hearing will be held at the board meeting scheduled for June 18, 2014. Refer to the Board of Health website at www.colorado.gov/cdphe/BoardofHealth for further detail as schedules of the board are subject to change.
