    Radioactive waste management is always a concern in nuclear power programmes, hence the need for a ‘cradle-to-grave’ nuclear energy strategy. The international consensus is that geological disposal 1 is the preferred solution for the ultimate disposal of higher activity radioactive waste. and assist research on, and the development and practical application of, nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. It includes reports and guides on the status of and advances in technology, and on experience, good practices and practical examples in the areas of nuclear power, the nuclear fuel cycle, radioactive waste management and decommissioning.

    In late Congress issued an amendment to the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of which directed the characterization of Yucca Mountain, Nevada as the only remaining potential site for the Nation. The Yellow Book provides standards and guidance for auditors and audit organizations, outlining the requirements for audit reports, professional qualifications for auditors, and audit organization quality control. Auditors of federal, state, and local government programs use these standards to perform their audits and produce their reports.

    Nuclear Energy Series provide information in the areas of nuclear power, nuclear fuel cycle, radioactive waste management and decommissioning, and on general issues that are relevant to all of the above mentioned areas. The structure of the IAEA Nuclear Energy Series comprises three levels: 1 — Basic Principles and Objectives; 2 — Guides; and.

ACTION: Concurrence on the U.S. Department of Energy™s revision of its general guidelines for the recommendation of sites for nuclear waste repositories.

The potentially acceptable site was subsequently narrowed to an area of 9 square miles. To determine their suitability, the Deaf Smith site and the eight other potentially acceptable sites have been evaluated in accordance with the DOE's General Guidelines for the Recommendation of Sites for Nuclear Waste Repositories.

draft General Guidelines for the Recommendation of Sites for Nuclear Waste Repositories (the guidelines) in accordance with the Act. The draft guidelines were revised in response to extensive comments and received the concurrence of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) in June Final guidelines were published n December as 10 CR.

The Nuclear Waste Policy Act required the Secretary of Energy to issue guidelines for selection of sites for construction of two permanent, underground nuclear waste repositories. DOE was to study five potential sites, and then recommend three to the President by January 1, Radiological Protection (ICRP) and the OECD's Nuclear Energy Agency (NBA), on criteria for radioactive waste disposal.

The safety principles contained in this book are generally consistent with the recent recommendations of these two bodies. A first draft of the present text was prepared at a Consultants Meeting in Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management - General Guidelines for the Recommendation of Sites for Nuclear Waste Repositories; Yucca Mountain Site Suitability Guidelines State of Nevada - Letter to OCRWM Director Ivan Itkin Asking Extension of Deadline for Comments on Revision to Siting Guidelines.

The Nuclear Waste Policy Act of (NWPA), Pub, L.Jan. 7,42 U.S.C. SSprovides that state activities related to the selection and construction of a high-level nuclear waste repository will be funded out of the Nuclear Waste Fund, which is derived from a levy on nuclear waste.

The EHS Guidelines are technical reference documents with general and industry-specific examples of Good International Industry Practice (GIIP) and are referred to in the World Bank’s Environmental and Social Framework and in IFC’s Performance Standards.

The EHS Guidelines contain the performance levels and measures that are normally acceptable to the World Bank Group, and that are. because waste package performance may be complemented by the performance of other system components.

Therefore, in specific repositories waste acceptance criteria may be adapted to local site characteristics or to special design features.
