T10  Transforming Low-Level Radioactive Waste Framework to Meet Emerging Issues and Challenges

The NRC is conducting a Very Low-Level Waste (VLLW) Scoping Study to explore possible options to improve and strengthen its regulatory framework for the disposal of the anticipated large volumes of VLLW associated with the decommissioning of nuclear power plants, and waste that might be generated by alternative waste streams created by fuel reprocessing or a radiological event.  This session will focus on the management of VLLW from varying perspectives.
