Radioisotope License annual Fees

What are you paying for Radioisotope license fees in various parts of the world?
Our regulator here in Canada (CNSC)is proposing some huge fee increases. My fees will increase 120% to CAD$12,500 per year.
I would like feedback from others as to what you are paying as a yearly license fee.

Any other info regarding how the fees are determined would be appreciated.

Thanks Dent

Re: Will anyone please share info on Radioisotope License annual Fees?
In the UK the rates are as follows:

For each existing site where industrial radiography
is carried out 106 pounds sterling (242 Can Dollars)
per year.

This is irrespective of the number of isotopes.

The isotope can be stored at a temporary location
for up to 60 days. After that time then that location
needs to be licensed for a one off cost of 622 pounds
sterling (1,421 Can Dollars).

To summarise Each location has a one off charge of
622 pounds, then an annual fee of 106 pounds per location.

For more information on UK charges you can visit the
UK Environmental Agency Website
