On October 30, 2018, the NRC solicited comments on its draft guidance document, NUREG/BR-0204, Rev. 3, “Instructions for Completing NRC's Uniform Low-Level Radioactive Waste Manifest.” This document provides instructions to prepare NRC Form 540 (Uniform Low-Level Radioactive Waste Manifest (Shipping Paper)), NRC Form 541 (Uniform Low-Level Radioactive Waste Manifest (Container and Waste Description)), and NRC Form 542 (Uniform Low-Level Radioactive Waste Manifest (Manifest Index and Regional Compact Tabulation)). Pursuant to the requirements of part 20 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR part 20), “Standards for Protection Against Radiation,” Appendix G, “Requirements for Transfers of Low-Level Radioactive Waste Intended for Disposal At Licensed Land Disposal Facilities and Manifests,” NRC Forms 540 and 541 must be prepared for low-level radioactive waste intended for ultimate disposal at a licensed low-level radioactive waste land disposal facility. NRC Form 542 is required only if processors and collectors of low-level Start Printed Page 65760radioactive waste are shipping low-level radioactive waste attributed to others for disposal at a licensed low-level radioactive waste land disposal facility. The public comment period was originally scheduled to close on December 31, 2018.
