"Environmental Radiation Protection Standards for Nuclear Power
Operations" (40 CFR 190). limit radiation releases and doses to the
public from the normal operations of nuclear power plants and other
uranium fuel cycle facilities, the facilities involved in the
manufacture and use of uranium fuel for generating electrical power.
Advancements in the scientific understanding of radiation risk and new
nuclear technologies and practices have led EPA to consider whether to
revise the standards. EPA has issued this ANPR to request information to
support our review. No changes to the current standards are being
proposed at this time.
