"These have certain major features in common, although
not all of the provisions are found in each of the laws.
These features include rule-making authority, licensing or
registration requirements, or both, recordkeeping requirements,
and naming a specific regulatory agency. The laws of some
States authorize the Governor to enter into agreement with the
Federal Government for transfer to the State of certain AEC
responsibilities in connection with the control of sources
of ionizing radiation; and authorize the regulatory agency to
enter into agreements with the Federal Government, other
States, or interstate agencies for cooperative inspections or
performance of other radiation control functions.
'Authority to make rules for radiation protection is specific
in 35 States. Under such authority, at least 24 of the States
have issued safety codes. Four additional States have issued
radiation codes under their general safety rulemaking authority.
"There is considerable variance among the provisions of
the radiation codes of the States. Requirements that are
commonly found include: that the employer furnish instruction
and training in the use of all necessary safeguards and pro-
cedures to employees who handle radioactive material or operate
machines that produce radiation, and that he furnish safety
devices, protective clothing, and appropriate personnel moni-
toring equipment for all persons for whom there is a reasonable
possibility of their receiving amounts of radiation in excess
of some percentage of the maximum permissible amounts specified.
