The provision deals with modifications for the elutions of molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) /technetium-99m (Tc-99m) generators to include a mandate to notify when a generation elution exceeds permissible Mo-99, strontium-82, or strontium-85 concentrations. It also adds a new requirement for when to report failed technetium and rubidium generators.
Many revisions were recommended by the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI).
The NRC's final rule goes into effect on January 14, 2019.
