Virginia Administrative Code
Title 12. Health
Agency 5. Department of Health
Chapter 481. Virginia Radiation Protection Regulations

12VAC5-481-3660. Reciprocal recognition of specific licenses.

Subject to these regulations, any person who holds a specific license from an agreement state or a licensing state, and issued by the agency having jurisdiction where the licensee maintains an office for directing the licensed activity and at which radiation safety records are normally maintained, is hereby granted a general license to conduct the activities authorized in such licensing document within this state for a period not in excess of 180 days in any calendar year provided that:

1. The licensing document does not limit the activity authorized by such document to specified installations or locations;

2. The out-of-state licensee notifies the agency in writing at least three days prior to engaging in such activity. Such notification shall indicate the location, period, and type of proposed possession and use within the State, and shall be accompanied by a copy of the pertinent licensing document. If, for a specific case, the three-day period would impose an undue hardship on the out-of-state licensee, the licensee may, upon application to the agency, obtain permission to proceed sooner. The agency may waive the requirement for filing additional written notifications during the remainder of the calendar year following the receipt of the initial notification from a person engaging in activities under the general license provided in subdivision 1 of this section;

3. The out-of-state licensee complies with all applicable regulations of the agency and with all the terms and conditions of the licensing document, except any such terms and conditions which may be inconsistent with applicable regulations of the agency;

4. The out-of-state licensee supplies such other information as the agency may request; and

5. The out-of-state licensee shall not transfer or dispose of TENORM possessed or used under the general license provided in subsection A of this section, except by transfer to a person:

a. Specifically licensed by the agency or by another licensing state to receive such TENORM; or

b. Exempt from the requirements for a license for such TENORM under 12VAC5-481-3480.
