Who will be required or asked to report: All NRC or Agreement State lowlevel waste facilities licensed pursuant to Part 61 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) or equivalent Agreement State regulations.

The NRC Form 540 contains information needed to satisfy DOT shipping paper requirements in 49 CFR Part 172, and the waste tracking requirements of the NRC in 10 CFR Part 20. The NRC Form 541 contains information needed by disposal site facilities to safely dispose of low-level waste and information to meet NRC and State requirements regulating these activities. The NRC Form 542, completed by waste collectors or processors, contains information which facilitates tracking the identity of the waste generator. That tracking becomes more complicated when the waste forms, dimensions, or packaging are changed by the waste processor. Each container of waste shipped from a waste processor may contain waste from several different generators. The information provided on the NRC Form 542 permits the States and Compacts to know the original generators of low- PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 level waste, as authorized by the LowLevel Radioactive Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1985, so they can ensure that waste is disposed of in the appropriate Compact.
