Will the technology/assistance prevent or correct a current or imminent radiological emergency? (Consult 810.6(c)(1))


To meet the conditions of §810.6(c)(1) for a transfer to any safeguarded or NRC-licensed destination:

  • There must  be  a  current  or  imminent  radiological  emergency  that  puts  the health and safety of the off-site population in danger
  • Advance written notification is provided to DOE;
  • DOE assesses the technology or assistance being transferred cannot be provided by other means; and
  • DOE does not object to the activities within 48 hours of receiving the advance notification.
  • No sensitive nuclear technology or assistance described in §810.7 is involved.

While the activity may be Generally Authorized, it is necessary to submit a report to DOE and receive approval (or no objection) prior to exporting any  technology or assistance.


Final determinations as to export control applicability are made after a full review by the appropriate U.S. Government agency. Use of this Export Compliance Guide does not constitute U.S. Government review, is not DOE/NNSA advice or a determination, and is provided for the user's convenience only.
