Changes in waste disposal practices, advances in analytical techniques, and a more risk-informed, performance-based approach to regulation has made it imperative that the NRC modernize to keep abreast of the changes.  This panel discussion will focus on several major updates to key guidance documents that address these challenges head on.  The discussion will highlight the benefits to the public and the nuclear industry.  It will focus on these changes, describe how LLW disposal capacity can be maximized, and discuss the safe disposal of the more challenging waste.
