|(a) The licensee shall ensure that each entrance or access point to a high radiation area has one or more of the following features: (1) a control device that, upon entry into the area, causes the level of radiation to be reduced below that level at which an individual might receive a deep dose equivalent of 0.1 rem (1 millisievert) in 1 hour at 30 centimeters from the source of radiation from any surface that the radiation penetrates; or (2) a control device that energizes a conspicuous visible or audible alarm signal so that the individual entering the high radiation area and the supervisor of the activity are made aware of the entry; or (3) entryways that are locked, except during periods when access to the areas is required, with positive control over each individual entry. (b) In place of the controls required by subsection (a) of this section for a high radiation area, the licensee may
substitute continuous direct or electronic surveillance that is capable of preventing unauthorized entry. (c) The licensee may apply to the commission for approval of alternative methods for controlling access to high radiation areas. (d) The licensee shall establish the controls required by subsections (a) and (c) of this section in a way that does not prevent individuals from leaving a high radiation area. (e) The licensee is not required to control each entrance or access point to a room or other area that is a high radiation area solely because of the presence of radioactive materials prepared for transport and packaged and labeled in accordance with the rules of the United States Department of Transportation provided that: (1) the packages do not remain in the area longer than 3 days; and (2) the dose rate at 1 meter from the external surface of any package does not exceed 0.01 rem (0.1
millisievert) per hour.
