NRC to Issue Construction Permit for SHINE Medical Isotope Facility

February 25th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Release

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has authorized its staff to issue a construction permit for a first-of-a-kind facility dedicated to medical isotope production. The Commission, having completed a mandatory hearing, found the staff’s review of the SHINE Medical Technologies, Inc. application sufficient to make the necessary safety and environmental findings. This will be the first construction permit issued for either a non-power utilization or production facility by the NRC since 1985.
