Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors
June 30 Registration Deadline for CRCPD Disused Source Cost-Share Opportunity
Please be advised that the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors (CRCPD) Source Collection and Threat Reduction (SCATR) Program is undertaking a multi-state effort to collect and dispose of Class A, B, and C disused sealed sources on a 50% cost-share basis. The deadline for generators to register their sources is June 30, 2013. Only sources registered with Off-Site Source Recovery Project (OSRP) (http://osrp.lanl.gov/PickUpSources.aspx) are eligible for participation in this initiative.
CRCPD cost-shared opportunities for commercial sealed source disposal are funded by the Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA) Global Threat Reduction Initiative (GTRI) through a grant to CRCPD. NNSA/GTRI is therefore requesting stakeholder assistance in communicating this opportunity to sealed source licensees in your states and/or compact region. To assist in this outreach, NNSA/GTRI has provided the attached documents:
1. an updated information sheet describing the current SCATR initiative more fully, including source eligibility, timing, and the process for collection and disposal, as well as CRCPD point of contact information; and,
2. a letter template for State regulatory agencies to encourage licensees to consider participation in the program.
Future opportunities for cost-shared disposal are subject to policy, funding, and timing constraints. NNSA/GTRI therefore urges licensees to register their disused sealed sources as soon as practicable and carefully consider participation in the current initiative.
In 2011, at the request of NNSA/GTRI, the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Forum (LLW Forum) formed the Disused Sources Working Group (DSWG) — which will use a holistic approach that considers both the front-end and back-end to study the issue of disused sources and report back to the LLWF's Board of Directors and NNSA/GTRI with its findings in the spring of 2014.
For additional information regarding this opportunity, please see the linked documents and/or contact Russ Meyer at CRCPD at (512) 761-3822 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to the National Directory of Brokers and Processors
Web site, a product developed by the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Forum,
Inc. and the Southeast Compact Commission for Low-Level Radioactive Waste
Management. The directory is intended for use by compacts, states, federal
agencies and others to provide information to generators seeking to treat,
process and otherwise manage their waste in preparation for ultimate disposal.
Interstate compacts have authority over the import
and export of low-level radioactive waste. When arranging waste management services, it is advisable to
contact the compact commission(s) of jurisdiction.
You may search the
directory for waste brokers, processors and transporters by service, waste
stream or company on the Company Search page.
If you are interested
in being listed in the national directory, submit a directory listing
request on the Contact Us page.
The Fall 2013 meeting of the LLW Forum will be held at the Marriott Hotel in Park City, Utah from October 22 - 23, 2013. (This will be a one and one-half day meeting.)
Please note that there will be an optional site tour of the EnergySolutions' Clive facility on Monday, October 21, for interested attendees. Additional information about the site tour can be found on the Meeting Bulletin.
