If we produced ionizing radiation we would of course monitor it because there is Health & Safety legislation that explicitly requires that.

The key point is "legislation". The elected representatives of the people enacted a law. There is no problem with that. In this case it would be the same as passing a War Powers Act and implementing conscription.

The problem here is an Executive refusal to tackle the political costs of legislating and trying to use the Judicial branch as a back door.
