Abstract

This document describes the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC's) process for licensing a low-level radioactive waste disposal facility within the time required by the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1985. This document also estimates the level of effort and expertise that is needed to review a license application within the required time. It is intended to be used by the NRC staff as well as States and interested parties to provide a better understanding of what the NRC envisions will be involved in licensing a low-level radioactive waste disposal facility.
