It also directed the President to consider whether a separate disposal facility would be required for the defense-related nuclear waste. 12 Section of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 13 (42 U.S.C. ) is amended by striking subsection (b) 14 and inserting the following: 15 ‘‘(b) AUTHORIZATION.—Subject to the requirements 16 of this subtitle, the Secretary is authorized to— 17 ‘‘(1) site, construct, and operate one or moreFile Size: KB.

Nuclear Waste Policy Act of report together with additional and dissenting views (to accompany H.R. ) (including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office). [United States. Congress. The Nuclear Waste Policy Act of (NWPA) created a timetable and procedure for establishing a permanent, underground repository for high-level radioactive waste.

The NWPA also provided for temporary federal storage of waste, including spent fuel from civilian nuclear reactors. The Nuclear Waste Policy Act established the Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (OCRWM) within the Department of Energy to develop, construct, and operate a system for spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste disposal, including a permanent geologic repository, interim storage capability and a transportation system.

6 The Nuclear Waste Policy Act. The US Congress established the Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board (the Board) in the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of It is an independent agency, charged with evaluating the technical and scientific validity of activities undertaken by the Secretary of Energy to manage the disposal of commercial spent nuclear fuel and high level Cited by: 1.

Provides that delivery, and acceptance by the Secretary, of high-level radioactive waste or spent nuclear fuel at a repository constructed under this Act shall constitute a transfer of title to the waste.

The waste issue reemerged on the decision agenda in when Congress amended the NWPA to eliminate the eastern nuclear repository and designate Yucca Mountain, Nevada the storage location for the nation’s nuclear waste.

This policy analysis looks at three topics related to the NWPA amendments: (1) the factors that brought the NWPA. Repositories are a long-term solution. The Nuclear Waste Policy Act of dictated that the federal government would identify a permanent geological repository—a long-term storage site—and begin transferring waste from nuclear power plants to that repository by Through the licensing process, the U.S.
