§ 30256. Vacating Installations: Records and Notice.
(a) Each person granted a specific license pursuant to Group 2 of this Subchapter shall keep records of information important to the decommissioning of a facility in an identified location until the site is released for unrestricted use by the Department. Before licensed activities are transferred or assigned in accordance with 30194(c), licensees shall transfer all records described in this section to the new licensee. In this case, the new licensee shall be responsible for maintaining these records until the license is terminated. If records important to the decommissioning of a facility are kept for other purposes, reference to these records and their locations may be used. The records shall include the following information important to decommissioning:
(1) Records of spills or other unusual occurrences involving the spread of contamination in and around the facility, equipment, or site. These records shall include but not be limited to a description of any instances when contamination remains after any cleanup procedures or when there is reasonable likelihood that contaminants may have spread to inaccessible areas, as for example, possible seepage into porous materials such as concrete. These records shall include any known information on identification of involved nuclides, quantities, forms, and concentrations.
(2) As-built drawings and modification drawings of structures and equipment in restricted areas where radioactive materials are used or stored, and of locations of possible inaccessible contamination such as buried pipes which may be subject to contamination. If required drawings are referenced, each relevant document need not be indexed individually. If drawings are not available, the licensee shall substitute appropriate records of available information concerning these areas and locations.
(D) All areas outside of restricted areas which contain material such that, if the license expired, the licensee would be required to either decontaminate the area to unrestricted release levels or apply for approval for disposal under Title 10, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 20.2002 incorporated by reference pursuant to Title 17, California Code of Regulations, Section 30253.
(b) Each person granted a specific license pursuant to Group 2 of this Subchapter shall, no less than 30 days before vacating any installation which may have been contaminated with radioactive material as a result of the licensee's activities, notify the department in writing of intent to vacate. This notice shall be submitted on form CDPH 5314 (06/09), entitled “Certificate of Disposition of Materials,” which is incorporated by reference herein, and shall address all requirements specified in subsection (c).
(A) Report levels of radiation in units of microrads per hour of beta and gamma radiation at one centimeter and gamma radiation at one meter from surfaces, and report levels of radioactivity, including alpha, in units of disintegrations per minute (or microcuries) per 100 square centimeters removable and fixed for surfaces, microcuries per milliliter for water, and picocuries per gram for solids such as soils or concrete; and
(d) In addition to the information required under Subsections (c)(4) and (5), the licensee shall submit a plan for completion of decommissioning if the procedures necessary to carry out decommissioning have not been previously approved by the Department and could increase potential health and safety impacts to workers or to the public such as in any of the following cases:
(h) Upon approval of the decommissioning plan by the Department, the licensee shall complete decommissioning in accordance with the approved plan. As a final step in decommissioning, the licensee shall again submit the information required in subsection (c)(5) and shall certify the disposition of accumulated wastes from decommissioning by completing form CDPH 5314 (06/09).
