Notice of Public Meeting of the Interagency Steering Committee on 
Radiation Standards

AGENCIES: Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Environmental Protection 

ACTION: Notice of public meeting.


SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will host a 
meeting of the Interagency Steering Committee on Radiation Standards 
(ISCORS) on September, 27, 2005, in Rockville, Maryland. The purpose of 
ISCORS is to foster early resolution and coordination of regulatory 
issues associated with radiation standards. Agencies represented on 
ISCORS include the NRC, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. 
Department of Energy, U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Department of 
Transportation, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of 
the U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. Department of Health and Human 
Services, U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Representatives from 
the Office of Science and Technology Policy, Defense Nuclear Facilities 
Safety Board, Office of Management and Budget, State Department, 
Illinois Bureau of Radiation Safety, and Pennsylvania Bureau of 
Radiation Protection may be observers at meetings. The objectives of 
ISCORS are to: (1) Facilitate a consensus on allowable levels of 
radiation risk to the public and workers; (2) promote consistent and 
scientifically sound risk assessment and risk management approaches in 
setting and implementing standards for occupational and public 
protection from ionizing radiation; (3) promote completeness and 
coherence of Federal standards for radiation protection; and (4) 
identify interagency radiation protection issues and coordinate their 
resolution. ISCORS meetings include presentations by the chairs of the 
subcommittees and discussions of current radiation protection issues. 
Committee meetings normally involve pre-decisional intra-governmental 
discussions and, as such, are normally not open for observation by 
members of the public or media. ISCORS has adopted the practice of 
opening one of its meetings each year to all interested members of the 
public. There will be time on the agenda for members of the public to 
provide comments. The final agenda for the September meeting will be 
posted on the ISCORS Web site, http://www.iscors.org, shortly before 
the meeting. Participants are encouraged to (1) notify the contact 
below for pre-registration and (2) allow sufficient time for security 
screening prior to accessing the meeting.

DATES: The meeting will be held from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, 
September 27, 2005.

ADDRESSES: The meeting will be held in the NRC auditorium, at Two White 
Flint North, 11545 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852.
