Lines available: 11 total

Facilitator: Deanne J. Idar

We are limited to only 11 lines available at that time, so l’ve identified slots for 8 representatives, with 3 lines remaining. For unidentified participants, please e-mail me if you will be unable to join us on the telecon.

For others, please also e-mail if you would like to join us on the call.


Address the 4 questions posed by the DoD LLRW Disposition Advisory Committee and identify next steps, as follows:


1. Will radwaste generated outside the hot, warm or plume zones be returned to Japan or treated as US generated waste?

2. Can this waste be declared 91b, “national defense” waste or do we need to treat as commercial low level radwaste?

3. If commercial, will we need import permit from NRC?

4. Can we access DOE disposal sites?
