State authorities

State regulatory authorities

Provisions of law allow federal agencies to delegate or relinquish certain regulatory responsibilities to the states having radioactive materials or nuclear facilities. NPPs are regulated by federal authorities. Regional arrangements allow closer coordination, such as using radioisotopes for medical uses. These arrangements are not necessarily mandatory; however, where the state can demonstrate adequate competencies, the appropriate federal agency can transfer regulatory authority.
