formerly had no radiation control legislation) and in Virginia
(which had a registration requirement for certain radiation
sources but no other provisions) to provide for comprehensive
radiation control by the States. These laws designate a
regulatory agency, giving it rulemaking authority, and require
licensing and registration and recordkeeping. They also give
the Governor authority to enter into an agreement with the
Federal Government for the State's assumption of control of
radiation hazards. "*

2.3 FEDERAL LICENSING AND AUTHORIZATION PROCEDURES
Licensing and authorization of a reactor installation are usually ac-
complished in two major steps: the issuance of a construction permit
early in the history of the project and the issuance of an operating li-
cense upon the successful completion of fabrication. A provisional li-
cense is frequently issued for a specified period of time, and upon the
successful completion of trial runs, an operating license is issued.
Before a license is granted by the Commission's Division of Reactor
Licensing (DRL), the Division must be satisfied that the facility as de-
signed and fabricated and as proposed to be operated will not result in
undue hazard to the health and safety of the public. The reactor safety
analysis reports** submitted by the applicant are the principal documents
upon which the Commission (and the ACRS, as applicable) base their reviews.
