Radioactive material (including by-product, source, and special nuclear material in quantities not sufficient to form critical mass and Naturally Occurring and Accelerator Produced Radioactive Materials) is regulated by the North Dakota Department of Health (NDDH).  Depending on the radionuclide, quantity, and the form, a license is required in order to manufacture, produce, transfer, receive, acquire, own, possess, store, or use NARM.  The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is authorized under Section 274 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 (AEA), as amended, to enter into agreements with the Governor of any State providing for the discontinuance of the regulatory authority of the NRC within that State. Under this agreement, the State assumes regulatory authority for the use of by-product, source, and special nuclear material in quantities not sufficient to form critical mass. The State of North Dakota entered into such an agreement with the NRC on September 1, 1969.
