This webinar introduces attendees to the legal nature, interrelationships between, and designated authorities’ roles under several regulatory frameworks, and explains how different wastes and cleanup processes fall within the purview of one or more set of regulations.
Cleanup at nuclear weapons waste complex sites proceeds under several regulatory frameworks including the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), and Atomic Energy Act (AEA). This webinar introduces attendees to the legal nature, interrelationships between, and designated authorities’ roles under these regulatory frameworks, and explains how different wastes and cleanup processes fall within the purview of one or more set of regulations. Speakers also discuss the legal and practical considerations and examples for involved parties in situations where frameworks overlap.
