Technical Amendments: Transfer of Office Functions and Removal of Obsolete RegulationsRuleE6-2010411/28/2006Energy DepartmentDOE has created a new Office of Health, Safety and Security to strengthen and improve formulation and implementation of health, safety and security policy. Incident to creation of the new office, DOE has transferred certain health, … DOE has created a new Office of Health, Safety and Security to strengthen and improve formulation and implementation of health, safety and security policy. Incident to creation of the new office, DOE has transferred certain health, safety and security functions to the new office that previously were carried out by the Office of Environment, Safety and Health and the Office of Security and Safety Performance Assurance. Certain functions related to DOE's responsibilities under the National Environmental Policy Act have been transferred to the Office of the General Counsel. Other functions outside of the core mission of health, safety and security have been transferred to other DOE offices performing similar or related functions. This notice of final rulemaking makes technical amendments to DOE's regulations to substitute the officials to whom or offices to which functions have been transferred pursuant to the reorganization of offices and functions. DOE also is removing Office of Environment, Safety and Health regulations in 10 CFR part 852 because Congress has transferred that authority to the Department of Labor. Today's regulatory amendments do not alter substantive rights or obligations under current law.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2006/11/28/E6-20104/technical-amendments-transfer-of-office-functions-and-removal-of-obsolete-regulationsFR-Doc-E6-20104
Criteria for the Certification and Recertification of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant's Compliance With the Disposal Regulations; Alternative ProvisionsRule04-1620707/16/2004Environmental Protection AgencyThe Environmental Protection Agency (``EPA'' or ``the Agency'' or ``we'') is finalizing changes to the ``Criteria for the Certification and Recertification of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant's Compliance with the Disposal Regulatio … The Environmental Protection Agency (``EPA'' or ``the Agency'' or ``we'') is finalizing changes to the ``Criteria for the Certification and Recertification of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant's Compliance with the Disposal Regulations,'' (``Compliance Criteria'') proposed August 9, 2002 (67 FR 51930-51946). Today, after considering public comments received in response to the proposed changes, we finalize the following actions: Addition of a mechanism to address minor changes to the provisions of the Compliance Criteria; changes to the approval process for waste characterization programs at Department of Energy (DOE) transuranic (TRU) waste sites; changes to the number of copies of compliance applications and reference materials submitted to EPA; and replacement of the term ``process knowledge'' with ``acceptable knowledge.'' Today's action will maintain or improve our oversight at WIPP to ensure safe disposal of waste. Moreover, these changes do not modify the technical approach that EPA employs when conducting independent inspections of the waste characterization capabilities at DOE waste generator/storage sites. EPA is conducting this action in accordance with the procedures for substituting alternative provisions in the Compliance Criteria.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2004/07/16/04-16207/criteria-for-the-certification-and-recertification-of-the-waste-isolation-pilot-plants-complianceFR-Doc-04-16207
Criteria for the Certification and Recertification of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant's Compliance with the Disposal Regulations; Alternative ProvisionsProposed Rule02-1979608/09/2002Environmental Protection AgencyThe Environmental Protection Agency (``EPA,'' or ``the Agency'' or ``we'') is proposing to revise the ``Criteria for the Certification and Recertification of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant's Compliance with the Disposal Regulations,' … The Environmental Protection Agency (``EPA,'' or ``the Agency'' or ``we'') is proposing to revise the ``Criteria for the Certification and Recertification of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant's Compliance with the Disposal Regulations,'' which are used to determine whether the Department of Energy's Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (``WIPP'') will comply with EPA's ``Environmental Radiation Protection Standards for Management and Disposal of Spent Nuclear Fuel, High-Level and Transuranic Radioactive Wastes.'' The following proposed revisions are included in today's action: addition of a mechanism to address minor changes to the provisions of the Compliance Criteria; changes to the approval process for waste characterization programs at Department of Energy transuranic sites; changes to allow for the submission of copies of compliance applications and reference materials in alternative format; and replacement of the term ``process knowledge'' with ``acceptable knowledge.'' The proposed changes do not lessen the requirements for complying with the Compliance Criteria. Moreover, these changes will have no effect on the technical approach that EPA employs when conducting independent inspections of the waste characterization capabilities at DOE waste generator sites. EPA is conducting this proposed action in accordance with the procedures for substituting alternative provisions of the Compliance Criteria. Today's notice marks the beginning of a 120-day public comment period on this proposed action.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2002/08/09/02-19796/criteria-for-the-certification-and-recertification-of-the-waste-isolation-pilot-plants-complianceFR-Doc-02-19796
