The Vermont Department of Health — since October 1, 2019 — has regulatory control for the licensing of those who possess, use, transfer, or store radioactive materials. This is determined by an agreement between the State of Vermont and the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).
Users of byproduct, source, and special nuclear material are required to get a license from the Department of Health prior to obtaining radioactive materials. The Radioactive Materials Program conducts licensing actions, inspects licensees for compliance with regulations, and works with licensees to ensure the safety and security of licensed radioactive materials. Vermont has referenced most of the NRC’s regulations and guidance to help with the transition from federal to state control and to help support a “national” radioactive materials program.
