NRC Seeking Comments on GTCC and Transuranic Radioactive Waste

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is seeking stakeholder participation and involvement in identifying the various technical issues that should be considered in the development of a regulatory basis for the disposal of Greater-than-Class C (GTCC) and transuranic radioactive waste through means other than a deep geologic disposal, including near-surface disposal. To assist in this process, the NRC is holding a public meeting on 22 February 2018 and is requesting that stakeholders respond to several questions. Those unable to attend may register to participate by webinar and will be able to view the presentation slides prepared by the NRC and electronically submit comments during the meeting. More information may be found in the meeting notice on the NRC website.

Comments may still be submitted at the website until 16 April 2018. To see the full announcement, go to and search for Docket ID NRC-2017-0081.
