Abstract

This is the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff’s report of its monitoring of U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) non-high-level waste disposal actions in Calendar Year 2011, in accordance with Section 3116(b) of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (the NDAA). Section 3116 of the NDAA requires that (1) DOE consult with the NRC on its non-high-level waste determinations and plans, and (2) the NRC, in coordination with the covered States of South Carolina and Idaho, monitor disposal actions that DOE takes to assess compliance with NRC regulations in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 61, "Licensing Requirements for Land Disposal of Radioactive Waste," Subpart C, "Performance Objectives." The NRC has prepared this report in accordance with NUREG-1854, "NRC Staff Guidance for Activities Related to U.S. Department of Energy Waste Determinations," dated August 2007 (NRC, 2007a).
