Radiation Protection

How should a facility demonstrate compliance for radionuclides not included in CAP88-PC?

To demonstrate compliance with any procedure not specified in the rule, you must obtain EPA approval. Contact Us for information about approval.

In unique situations, radiation releases contain radionuclides not included in CAP-88. In these cases, please contact the EPA regional office that serves your state, as they will be able to guide you through developing a proper compliance methodology. Please visit the Contact Us page for regional contact information.

For more information on CAP-88 and CAP-88 PC, please see Compliance Software for Radioactive Air Emissions.
