Proposed Regulations

Standards for Protection Against Radiation, 32 Ill. Adm. Code 340, published in the Illinois Register on December 28, 2020, Volume 44, Issue 52, page 19617.

IEMA is proposing to amend Section 340.1060 contact information for obtaining instructions for completing waste manifests from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). This change is being made for compatibility with NRC in accordance with RATS ID 2015-5.  



Water Treatment Residuals

IEMA is preparing to file a new rule for water treatment residuals based on comments received during previous public hearings on the matter. A link to the draft of the new rule is provided below. This new rule, once promulgated, will replace the exemption currently in 32 Ill. Adm. Code 330.40(d). Any questions or comments concerning this draft can be directed to IEMA's Radiological Field Services Unit at ema.RadiumResiduals@illinois.gov until May 10, 2021. This rule has not been filed for promulgation yet; however, IEMA anticipates filing for First Notice in the next few months. The public, including all affected entities, will have the opportunity to submit comments during the First Notice period once the rule is published in the Illinois Register. IEMA will continue to provide any updates regarding the status of the rule on this webpage.
