    John McGahren and John Corbett, attorneys in the firm's New Jersey office, authored an article published by the New Jersey Law Journal on March 1, 2010, about New Jersey’s recently completed agreement with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. With this agreement, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Bureau of Environmental Radiation now has sole licensing, rulemaking, inspection and enforcement authority for certain radioactive materials formerly under the nuclear commission’s direction.

    “New Jersey's newly-conferred agreement state status means that New Jersey firms terminating licenses and decommissioning facilities with source materials, subcritical mass special nuclear material and its byproducts and naturally occurring and accelerator-produced byproducts now deal with regulators closer to home, but face considerably tighter state regulatory standards and scrutiny in doing so,” stated Mr. McGahren and Mr. Corbett.

    Companies in New Jersey are encouraged to adapt their legal and technical approaches toward their licenses, termination and remediation accordingly.
