Concerns have grown that terrorists could use radioactive materials and sealed sources (materials sealed in a capsule) to build a żdirty bombż -- a device using conventional explosives to disperse radioactive material. In 2003, it was found that there were weaknesses in the NRC radioactive materials licensing process and recommend. were made for improvement. This report assesses: (1) the progress NRC has made in implementing the recommend.; (2) other steps NRC has taken to improve its ability to track radioactive materials; (3) Customs and Border Protectionżs (CBP) ability to detect radioac

Large volumes of hazardous wastes are produced each year, however only a small proportion of them are radioactive. While disposal options for hazardous wastes are generally well established, some types of hazardous waste face issues similar to those for radioactive waste and also require long-term disposal arrangements. The objective of this NEA study is to put the management of radioactive waste into perspective, firstly by contrasting features of radioactive and hazardous wastes, together with their management policies and strategies, and secondly by examining the specific case of the wastes

In underground repositories for radioactive waste, significant quantities of gases may be generated as a result of several processes. The potential impact of gas generation, accumulation and migration on the performances of the various barriers and, ultimately, on the long-term safety of a repository, should therefore be assessed in the development of safety cases for underground repositories. It was in this context that the EC and the NEA organised a workshop on "Gas Generation, Accumulation and Migration in Underground Repository Systems for Radioactive Waste: Safety-relevant Issues" in Reim

The Nuclear Regulatory Comm. (NRC) regulates domestic medical, industrial, & research uses of sealed radioactive sources. Those attempting to purchase a sealed source must apply for a license & gain the approval of either NRC or an "agreement state (AS)." To become an AS, a state must demonstrate that its regulatory program is compatible with NRC reg's. & is effective in protecting public health & safety. NRC then transfers portions of its authority to the AS. In 2003, it was reported that weaknesses in NRC's licensing program could allow terrorists to obtain radioactive materials. NRC respond

There have been reports on limitations in the mgmt. of U.S. low-level radioactive waste (LLRW). To identify potential approaches to overcome these limitations, the author examined the extent to which other countries have: LLRW inventory databases; timely removal of higher-activity LLRW from waste generator sites; disposition options for all LLRW; & requirements that LLRW generators have financial reserves to cover waste disposition costs, as well as any other approaches that might improve U.S. LLRW mgmt. The author surveyed 18 countries representing leading LLRW generators to identify their mg
