Job Impact Exemption Statement - 6 NYCRR Part 380

Proposed Amendments to 6 NYCRR Part 380 - Prevention and Control of Environmental Pollution by Radioactive Materials

In accordance with Section 201-a(2)(a) of the State Administrative Procedures Act (SAPA), a Job Impact Statement has not been prepared for this proposed rule as it is not expected to create a substantial adverse impact on jobs and employment opportunities in New York State.

Part 380 requirements control the release of radioactive material to the environment. This rulemaking would update several provisions that are required for compatibility with federal regulations, simplify and update language, and add several needed provisions that have been absent from the regulations. The parties affected by this amendment are facilities that possess regulated radioactive materials.

This proposed rule is not expected to cause the loss of jobs at facilities that possess regulated radioactive material. Many of the new requirements in this rule have already been in effect for several years through permit conditions. The new, lower threshold for reporting of incidents would require the expenditure of staff time to prepare and submit reports of incidents, should such incidents occur. Responsibility for ensuring compliance with this rulemaking would likely be designated to on-site facility radiation protection staff, although a regulated facility that has experienced a serious incident may elect to hire a health physics contractor to assist with the investigation, documentation, reporting, and correction of the root causes of such an incident. Regulated facilities are located throughout the State and compliance with this rule making would not have any adverse impact on jobs in any areas of the State.
