Radioactive Waste

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) requires that all licensees maintain written records regarding disposal of radioactive waste. In order for the University to meet the requirements, individual Principal Investigators are required to complete and keep records. Each authorized Principal Investigator is responsible for the safe and secure storage of radioactive waste generated. In addition, shielding and potential for volatility must be considered by the Principal Investigator. Secondary containers such as plastic basins are useful and recommended for storage of liquid waste. Review the Radioactive Waste Handling Procedures for more information.
