Below Regulatory Concern Waste

Below regulatory concern (BRC) wastes have radioactive content so low that unregulated release does not pose an unacceptable risk to public health or safety (Table 11.26.4). This class was established to make practical, timely determinations of when wastes need to go to a licensed LLRW site. The low-level radioactive waste policy amendments act of 1985 established procedures for acting expeditiously on petitions to exempt specific radioactive waste streams from NRC regulations (NRC 1986). Petitions already filed could dramatically reduce the total LLRW needing disposal.
