These regulations establish standards for protection against ionizing radiation resulting from the disposal and discharge of radioactive material to the environment. The regulations apply to any person who disposes of or discharges licensed material within the State, or whose loss of control of licensed material may result in the disposal or discharge of such material within the State. The disposal of radioactive tailings or wastes produced by the extraction or concentration of uranium or thorium for any ore processed primarily for its source material content, where such tailings or wastes are not regulated by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, are subject to these regulations. Some exceptions are listed in the regulations. The regulations describe radiation dose limits and registration and permitting procedures for the discharge of hazardous waste, and distinguish between standard and low-level radioactive waste disposal facilities.
