|Publication Date:||31 August 2018|
C1.1.1. This Regulation implements low-level radioactive waste (LLRW) disposal policies and procedures established in the following:
C184.108.40.206. Department of Defense Instruction 4715.6, "Environmental Compliance," April 24, 1996 (reference (e)).
C220.127.116.11. Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Environmental Security) Memorandum "Charter for Low Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Program," August 21, 1997 (reference (f)).
C1.1.2. The Department of the Army will serve as the DoD Executive Agent for LLRW disposal. The Department of the Army will also serve as the Technical Advisor to the Defense Environmental Security Council (DESC) and the Environment, Safety, and Occupational Health Policy Board (ESOHPB) for LLRW disposal.
C1.2.1. This Regulation applies to all DoD LLRW, mixed waste, and NORM/NARM waste disposal except:
C18.104.22.168. LLRW generated by the Navy Nuclear Propulsion Program under authority of Executive Order 12344 and 42 U.S.C. 7158 (references (g) and (h)).
C22.214.171.124. LLRW related to nuclear weapons programs.
C1.2.2. A DoD Component that generates LLRW from an environmental restoration site will coordinate its disposal plans with the Executive Agent prior to taking LLRW disposal actions. This will allow the Executive Agent the opportunity to review the plans for safety and compliance. However, LLRW disposals necessitated by environmental restoration do not require waivers of the requirement in paragraph 126.96.36.199 from the Executive Agent. In such cases, Installation Commanders shall follow applicable DoD Component Service guidelines to ensure uninterrupted and expeditious restoration of LLRW contaminated sites.
