General requirements for the issuance of specific licenses.

A license application will be approved if the department determines that:
(1) The applicant is qualified by reason of training and experience to use the material in question for the purpose requested in accordance with these regulations in a manner to minimize danger to public health and safety or property;
(2) The applicant's proposed equipment, facilities, and procedures are adequate to minimize danger to public health and safety or property;
(3) The issuance of the license will not harm the health and safety of the public; and
(4) The applicant satisfies any applicable special requirements in WAC 246-235-075 through 246-235-110, and chapters 246-240 through 246-252 WAC.
(5) When an application for a license to receive and possess radioactive material for commercial waste disposal by land burial, source material milling, uranium enrichment facility construction and operation, production of uranium hexafluoride, or for the conduct of any other activity which the department determines will significantly affect the quality of the environment, the applicant may not begin construction until the department has weighed the environmental, economic, technical, and other benefits against the environmental costs, and, considering available alternatives, has concluded that the issuance of the license is appropriate. Commencement of construction prior to approval by the department shall be grounds for denial of a license to receive and possess radioactive material in the plant or facility. Commencement of construction may include nonconstruction activities if the activity has a reasonable nexus to radiological safety and security.
