Regulatory Constraints Analysis (ANL) - Status

  • Status
    • Evaluation of current status completed in FY02
      • All manufacturing of DU products requires a license
      • Most uses in radiologically unregulated areas would require a license for use unless exempt
      • Use licenses are impractical in essentially all cases
        • Large industrial users may be an exception
      • Exemptions are issued on a case-by-case basis
      • Best exemption candidates
        • Use in space and defense applications
        • Catalysts (DU may be sufficiently dilute)
        • Industrial applications
