Introduction The Ronald Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (NDAA) authorizes the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in consultation with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), to determine whether certain radioactive waste related to the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel is not high-level waste, provided certain criteria are met. The NDAA also requires NRC to monitor DOE disposal actions to assess compliance with 10 CFR Part 61, Subpart C, performance objectives for low-level waste. On September 7, 2005, DOE submitted a draft waste determination for residual waste incidental to reprocessing, including sodium bearing waste, stored in the Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center (INTEC) Tank Farm Facility (TFF) to demonstrate compliance with the NDAA criteria including demonstration of compliance with the performance objectives in 10 CFR Part 61, Subpart C. In its consultation role, the NRC staff reviewed the draft waste determination and concluded that the NDAA criteria could be met for residual waste stored in the INTEC TFF. NRC documented the results of its review in a technical evaluation report (TER) issued in October 2006. DOE issued a final waste determination in November 2006 taking into consideration the assumptions, conclusions, and recommendations PO 00000 Frm 00089 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18283 documented in NRC’s TER (ML062490142).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

1. Introduction

    The Ronald Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 
Year 2005 (NDAA) authorizes the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in 
consultation with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), to determine 
whether certain radioactive waste related to the reprocessing of spent 
nuclear fuel is not high-level waste, provided certain criteria are 
met. The NDAA also requires NRC to monitor DOE disposal actions to 
assess compliance with 10 CFR Part 61, Subpart C, performance 
objectives for low-level waste.
    On September 7, 2005, DOE submitted a draft waste determination for 
residual waste incidental to reprocessing, including sodium bearing 
waste, stored in the Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center 
(INTEC) Tank Farm Facility (TFF) to demonstrate compliance with the 
NDAA criteria including demonstration of compliance with the 
performance objectives in 10 CFR Part 61, Subpart C. In its 
consultation role, the NRC staff reviewed the draft waste determination 
and concluded that the NDAA criteria could be met for residual waste 
stored in the INTEC TFF. NRC documented the results of its review in a 
technical evaluation report (TER) issued in October 2006. DOE issued a 
final waste determination in November 2006 taking into consideration 
the assumptions, conclusions, and recommendations documented in NRC's 
TER (ML062490142).
    To better inform the public on the NRC's activities under the NDAA, 
NRC is holding this public meeting in Idaho Falls, Idaho to provide the 
public with a clear understanding of NRC's activities on the 
implementation of the NDAA and the review of DOE's waste determination
