As a key component of the Integrated Source Management Portfolio (ISMP), the Web-Based Licensing (WBL) system is a materials licensing system that supports the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and Agreement States in managing the licensing information of businesses that use radioactive materials. Deployed on August 2012, WBL provides an up-to-date repository of all licenses nationwide, a web-based license system for NRC licensees, and an avenue for Agreement States to use the same licensing and information platform as the NRC. Designed to maintain information on materials licensees, WBL supports the entry of licensing information and license images that enables the NRC and Agreement States to manage the licensing life cycle from initial application through license issuance, amendment, reporting, and termination.

WBL is also used by the NRC as its materials licensing system, and can be used as a licensing system by any Agreement State that chooses to do so. In addition, this system replaces and improves upon the functionality previously embodied in several of the NRC's legacy systems, including the License Tracking System (LTS), Inspection Planning System (IPS), Reciprocity Tracking System (RTS), and Transportation Approval Package Information System (TAPIS).
