Disused Sources Working Group

In September 2011, at the request of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration/Global Threat Reduction Initiative (NNSA/GTRI), the LLW Forum formed the Disused Sources Work Group (DSWG) to develop recommendations for improving the management and disposition of disused sealed sources that pose a threat to national security.

Over a 30-month period, the DSWG solicited input from a broad range of stakeholders. The final report, which includes findings and recommendations from the working group, was released at the spring LLW Forum meeting in Austin, Texas on March 17, 2014.

A limited number of printed copies of the report will be available while supplies last by contacting the LLW Forum at (754) 779-7551 or LLWForumInc@aol.com.

The report may also be downloaded and printed by clicking this link: Final DSWG report (PDF)

Current information about the DSWG — including project highlights, summary of recommendations, resource material links and membership/staff contact information — can be found at www.disusedsources.org


Part 61 Working Group

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend Part 61 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR Part 61) titled, “Licensing Requirements for Land Disposal of Radioactive Waste,” to require new and revised site-specific technical analyses, to permit the development of site-specific criteria for low-level radioactive waste acceptance based on the results of these analyses, and to facilitate implementation and better alignment of those requirements with current health and safety standards. This rule would affect low-level radioactive waste disposal licensees or applicants that are regulated by NRC or Agreement States.

In early 2012, the LLW Forum formed a Part 61 Working Group (P61WG) to provide input and comment on the NRC’s Part 61 rulemaking initiative. The P61WG includes representatives of all four sited states—South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Washington—plus the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The P61WG developed a briefing paper on the Part 61 rulemaking initiative that may be downloaded and printed by clicking this link: P61WG Briefing Paper (PDF).

Current information about the P61WG — including project highlights, summary of recommendations, resource material links and membership/staff contact information — can be found at www.part-61.org.

State & Compact Documents

Compact Exercise of Import/Export Authority over Commercial Low-Level Radioactive Waste August 1999

Represents interpretations by officials of each of the ten congressionally approved compacts regarding their ability to control the import of LLRW generated outside the compact region to regional facilities for disposal, storage, and treatment; the export of LLRW to facilities outside the compact region for disposal, storage and treatment; the import of LLRW generated outside the compact region to non-regional facilities located in the region for disposal, storage and treatment; and the use/existence of non-regional facilities located in the compact region for disposal, storage and treatment of LLRW generated in the region. (Developed by Afton Associates in August 1999 under separate contract for the Midwest Compact and reprinted with permission.)

Compact Exercise of Import/Export Authority over Commercial Low-Level Radioactive Waste August 1999

Identifies the policies, rules and resolutions adopted by each compact commission governing the import and export of LLRW into and out of their respective regions. (Developed by Afton Associates in August 1999 under separate contract for the Midwest Compact and reprinted with permission.)
