This report provides a comprehensive overview of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC's) decommissioning program. Its purpose is to provide a stand-alone reference document that describes the decommissioning process and summarizes the status of decommissioning activities, under NRC jurisdiction, through September 30, 2006. This includes the decommissioning of complex decommissioning sites, commercial reactors, research and test reactors, uranium recovery facilities, and fuel cycle facilities. In addition, this report discusses accomplishments of the decommissioning program in fiscal year (FY) 2006; identifies the key decommissioning program issues that the staff will address in FY 2007; and provides information Agreement States have supplied on decommissioning in their States.1


The information collections contained in this NUREG are covered by the requirements of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Parts 19, 20, 30, 33, 34, 35, 36, 39, 40, 51, 70, 72, and 150, which the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has approved, approval numbers 3150-0044, 0014, 0017, 0015, 0007, 0010, 0158, 0130, 0020, 0021, 0009, 0132, and 0032.


If a means used to impose an information collection does not display a currently valid OMB control number, NRC may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, the information collection.

1 As of September 2006, NRC is planning to reorganize the Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards (NMSS) and the Office of State and Tribal Programs (STP), to create two new offices: the Office of Federal and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs (FSME), which will focus on materials programs; and the new NMSS, which will focus on fuel cycle programs. This reorganization is scheduled to take effect on October 1, 2006. This document contains references to NMSS and STP. These references will be updated in future revisions of this document.
