NRC ISSUES REPORT ON WASTE BURIAL CHARGES

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has issued a report on waste burial charges that nuclear power plant licensees can use to make the required annual adjustment of their decommissioning cost estimates. Licensees now have the option of using waste processing vendors for the disposal of most of their decommissioning waste.

Copies of the report, Revision 8 to NUREG-1307, "Report on Waste Burial Charges," are available for purchase from the Government Printing Office, P.O. Box 37082, Washington, D.C. 20402-9328 (telephone: 202/512-1800), or from the National Technical Information Service, 5285 Port Royal Road, Springfield, Va. 22161.

Copies are also available for review and copying for a fee at the NRC Public Document Room, 2120 L Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20555 (telephone: 202/634-3273).
