Regulatory Compliance

You are here

The Department of Energy is not a regulatory agency; however it does self-regulate its own radioactive waste and is governed by a variety of statutes, legislation, regulations, directives and guidance. Many of the current compliance-related actions revolve around waste and material disposition that are governed by National Environmental Policy Act Environmental Impact Statements and Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act Records of Decision. DOE is currently revising its radioactive waste management regulation, DOE Order 435.1, and a link is provided for those activities, including the Complex-Wide Review Report, which is an analysis associated with implementation of the current requirements.
