a product developed by the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Forum, Inc. and the Southeast Compact Commission for Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management. The directory is intended for use by compacts, states, federal agencies and others to provide information to generators seeking to treat, process and otherwise manage their waste in preparation for ultimate disposal. Interstate compacts have authority over the import and export of low-level radioactive waste. When arranging waste management services, it is advisable to contact the compact commission(s) of jurisdiction.
The Low-Level Radioactive Waste Forum, Inc. (LLW Forum) meets twice per year at locations determined by the membership. Each meeting includes reports on the latest developments in states and interstate compacts; interactive discussions of leading-edge policy issues; and, expert presentations on regulatory, legal and technical questions.
The fall 2018 meeting of the LLW Forum will be held at the Red Lion Hotel in Richland, Washington from October 3 – 4, 2018. This will be a one and one-half day meeting beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday and concluding at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday.
LLW Forum meeting attendees may also participate in an optional tour of Hanford’s Historic B Reactor on Tuesday (October 2) from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. Interested stakeholders must complete and submit the registration form at least two weeks in advance of the scheduled tour.
The LLW Forum Executive Committee will meet from 7:30 – 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning (October 3). The Disused Sources Working Group (DSWG) will meet from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. on Thursday (October 4).
The Northwest Interstate Compact on Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management is sponsoring the meeting. A draft agenda for the LLW Forum meeting will be posted, once available.
