SAVE THE DATE: The Fall 2021 meeting of the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Forum (LLW Forum) will be held October 13-14, 2021. For more information, click here.


In early 2012, the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Forum (LLW Forum)—an organization that was established to facilitate state and compact implementation of the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Act of 1980 and its 1985 Amendments (LLRWPAA) and to promote the objectives of low-level radioactive waste regional compacts—formed a Part 61 Working Group (P61WG) to provide input and comment on the NRC’s Part 61 rulemaking initiative. The P61WG includes representatives of all four sited states—South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Washington—plus the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The P61WG developed a briefing paper on the Part 61 rulemaking initiative that may be downloaded and printed by clicking this link: P61WG Briefing Paper (PDF).

For additional information regarding the P61WG, please contact LLW Forum Executive Director Dan Shrum at (801) 580-3201 or dshrum@llwforum.org
