LLW Forum's Disused Sources Working Group Report Now Available

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)

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 2014 meeting of the LLW Forum will be held at the Embassy Suites Denver - Downtown Convention Center from October 30 - 31, 2014. This will be a one and one-half day meeting beginning at 9:00 am on Thursday and concluding at 1:00 pm on Friday.

The meeting is being co-sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Low-Level Radioactive Waste Board and the Midwest Interstate Low-Level Radioactive Waste Compact Commission. Information about the meeting can be found on the Meeting Bulletin.

Advanced registration is required by filling out and sending in a Registration Form.
