The NRC will be holding a Webinar to discuss the attached FRN on a proposed interpretation of the low-level radioactive waste disposal regulations in 10 CFR 20.2001. The Low-Level Radioactive Waste Forum had a panel discussion on VLLW planned during our Spring 2020 meeting, but the meeting and panel have been cancelled.
We encourage you to participate in the meeting – the following information is directly from the NRC webpage.
Solicit stakeholder feedback on a proposed interpretation of the low-level radioactive waste disposal regulations in 10 CFR 20.2001 would permit licensees to dispose of waste by transfer to persons who hold specific exemptions for the purpose of disposal, rather than needing the individual disposal requests approved on a case-by-case basis. The NRC would consider approval of requests for specific exemptions for the purpose of disposal if they are for disposal of VLLW by land burial.
