DOE-STD-5507-2013, Standard for Communicating Waste Characterization and DOT Hazard Classification Requirements for Low Specific Activity Materials and Surface Contamination

Functional areas: Communicating Waste Characterization, DOT, Hazard Classification Requirements, Low Specific Activity Materials, Surface Contaminated Objects
Although other types of radioactive material and waste may be candidate LSA material or SCO, this standard focuses solely on low-level waste (LLW)3. The DOE ships various types of radioactive waste stemming from current and historical operations. Generally, candidate LSA material and SCO within the DOE complex are wastes generated from the clean-up and deactivation of World War II and Cold War era nuclear processing and weapons support operations. These waste matrices can be complex. The level of effort required to characterize waste varies based on the type and origin of waste being generated.
