The US Department of Energy (DOE) is amending its primary standards for occupational radiation protection. It is doing so because it is changing from a system of contractually-based nuclear safety standards to regulatory-based requirements. This Final Rule codifies requirements in the existing contractually-based standards, clarifies certain issues identified during the implementation of programmes to ensure compliance with the original rule and corrects minor errors.

Final Rule - Licenses and radiation safety requirements for well logging [USA]
These amended regulations specify radiation safety and licencing requirements for the use of radioactive materials in well logging. In well logging, instruments are lowered into a drilled hole to obtain information on underground rock formations (type of rock, porosity, density, hydrocarbon content) in order to locate hydrocarbon and other mineral deposits. Extensive background information is given. The adoption of uniform radiation safety requirements is promoted.
