Radiation Safety & Control Services Inc. Granted Decommissioning License for Radioactive Materials
STRATHAM, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Radiation Safety & Control Services (RSCS) has obtained a New Hampshire State Decommissioning License (NH Radioactive Materials License #381R) that NRC and other State regulations require to perform activities that terminate a facility’s radioactive materials license or to safely remove some types of radioactive materials. RSCS is now able to independently perform decommissioning services for facilities with radioactive materials.
“This is an important milestone for RSCS in providing expert radiation safety and radioactive-source management services to environmental remediation sectors.”
Decommissioning efforts can include dismantling systems, measuring radioactivity in materials, and packaging and classifying radioactive waste for disposal. Facilities licensed to use and possess radioactive materials are usually prevented from undertaking complex decommissioning activities themselves without applying for a complicated and time-consuming amendment to their license. Alternatively, they can pursue decommissioning by contracting these services with a company that has a decommissioning license. In some cases, an unlicensed facility or outdoor environment such as a Brownfield site may contain radioactive materials that require remediation and disposal, which can also be handled through practices that are authorized through a decommissioning license.
“RSCS can now serve facilities that discover radioactive materials on their site or in their practice to safely remove and dispose of this material in accordance with applicable regulations,” says Jay Tarzia, Executive Director, Radiation Safety & Control Services. “This is an important milestone for RSCS in providing expert radiation safety and radioactive-source management services to environmental remediation sectors.”
RSCS is experienced in performing decommissioning activities for nuclear power, medical, industrial, and research facilities. They offer a full-scope of operating procedures that include radiological controls, personnel dosimetry, worker safety, environmental characterization and remediation, contaminated groundwater investigations, waste monitoring, packaging, final surveys and reporting.
