Low-Level Radioactive Waste (LLRW) Strategic Assessment

The NRC is updating a Strategic Assessment of its LLRW regulatory program. The objective of this assessment is to identify and prioritize activities that the Staff can undertake to ensure a stable, reliable and adaptable regulatory framework for effective LLRW management, while also considering future needs and changes that may occur in the U.S. LLRW management system. The Staff is seeking comments on developments that would affect the LLRW regulatory program in the next several years that would affect licensees and sited States and actions that the NRC could take to ensure safety, security, and the protection of the environment. Comments are due by July 14, 2014.
