On December 18, 2008, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff provided a Policy Issue Notation Vote Paper, SECY-08-0197 (ADAMS Accession No. ML083360582), to the Commission which presented the regulatory and technical options of moving, or not moving, towards a greater degree of alignment of the NRC radiation protection regulatory framework with the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) Publication 103. In a Staff Requirements Memorandum dated April 2, 2009, SRM-SECY-08-0197 (ML090920103), the Commission approved the staff's recommendation to immediately begin engagement with stakeholders and interested parties to initiate development of the technical basis for possible revision of the NRC's radiation protection regulations, as appropriate and where scientifically justified. As part of the outreach to stakeholders and interested parties, NRC staff noted the need to expand the current occupational radiation dose information contained in the Radiation Exposure Information and Reporting System (REIRS) database.e improved to support current requirements for risk-informed, performance-based (RI/PB) applications.
