Radioactive Materials Transportation, 32 Ill. Adm. Code 341, published in the Illinois Register on May 15, 2020, Volume 44, Issue 20, page 8116.

After reviewing IEMA's last amendments to Part 341 to comply with RATS ID 2015-3, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC) identified an issue with IEMA's rules regarding the 10 CFR 71 incorporation by reference. The Agency is proposing to add an Agency Note in Section 341.10(a) to address the issue and maintain compatibility with 10 CFR 71 as required by the USNRC. The Agency is also proposing to amend Section 341.10(a) to comply with RATS ID 2019-2 and maintain compatibility by changing the dates for the applicable Code of Federal Regulations. This rulemaking will be filed for adoption at the end of First Notice per Section 31 of the Radiation Protection Act of 1990.
