On March 13, 2015 (80 FR 13451), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published a notice in the federal register requesting comment on a draft list of prioritized low-level radioactive waste (LLW) tasks based upon the assessment updates to the strategic assessment (now called a programmatic assessment) performed in 2007. The objective of this updated assessment remains the same as the 2007 assessment; that is, to identify and prioritize tasks that the NRC staff can undertake to ensure a stable, reliable, and adaptable regulatory framework for effective LLW management, while also considering future needs and changes that may occur in the nation’s commercial LLW management system. In 2014, through public meetings, webinars, and Federal Register notices, the NRC staff solicited public comment on what changes, if any, should be made to the current LLW program’s regulatory framework, as well as specific actions that the staff might undertake to facilitate such changes. The NRC staff considered the comments received; performed an assessment of the comments; removed completed tasks listed in the 2007 strategic assessment SECY-07-0180, “Strategic Assessment of Low- Level Radioactive Waste Regulatory Program” (ADAMS Accession No. ML071350291), and developed a draft list of fourteen (14) prioritized LLW tasks. Please submit comments by April 13, 2015 on the updated prioritized task list as presented in Section III, Table 1 of this document. In particular, the NRC is requesting any views on possible unintended consequences of finalizing the proposed task list and any tasks that commenters feel the NRC did not adequately consider. Comments received after April 13, 2015 will be considered if it is practical to do so, but the NRC is able to assure consideration only for comments received on or before this date.
