Regulation Authority :
R.I. Gen. Laws § 23-1.3-5
Purpose and Reason :
In accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act, R.I. Gen. Laws Section 42-35-3(a)(1), the following is a concise statement regarding this rulemaking for the Rules and Regulations for the Control of Radiation (R23- 1.3-RAD). This repeal reorganizes existing radiation control regulations into distinct Parts in order to make them more accessible to the regulated community and the general public, and to reduce the volume of said regulations by utilizing incorporation by reference of applicable portions of Titles 10 and 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.). No comments regarding this repeal were received during the public comment period; therefore no non-technical revisions were made to the regulations posted for public comment, and no justification for not implementing suggested revisions is required. In the development of this rule, consideration was given to: 1) alternative approaches; 2) overlap or duplication with other statutory and regulatory provisions; and 3) significant economic impact on small business. No alternative approach, duplication, or overlap was identified based on available information. RIDOH has determined that the benefits of this rule justify its costs.
