Letter to the NRC from NEI, Exemption of Certain Large Equipment From the Requirements of 10 CFR 37, Jan. 24, 2014

The regulatory requirements in 10 CFR 37, “Physical Protection of Category 1 and Category 2 Quantities of Radioactive Material,” are intended to provide reasonable assurance of the security of category 1 or category 2 quantities of radioactive material by protecting these materials from theft or diversion. NEI believes there is no realistic threat for theft of large multi-ton components.
