Topics will include the regulatory classification requirements for low-level radioactive waste, the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Act and state compact updates, current status and availability regarding commercially available disposal sites, waste sites’ acceptance criteria, waste broker services, and mixed waste disposal options. Course participants will learn how to characterize, classify, package, prepare for shipment, label, and manifest waste shipments. EPA requirements for implementing the conditional exemption for storage, transportation and disposal of mixed wastes will be discussed as well as NRC/EPA guidance on testing of mixed wastes.

This course begins with radioactive materials transportation training (DOT & NRC Requirements for Shipping and Receiving Radioactive Materials). If students have recently completed training in this area, they may choose to attend the third day only. Please call to discuss this option.
